Ran in to #Oilers GM Steve Tambellini in Helsinki.Just wrapped up mtg with his scouts and barring trade offer plan is in place for #1 pick

That’s TSN commentator Dave Randorf with a pretty good indicator that Tambellini will continue the course and pick first overall for the third consecutive season. Oil On Whyte Hub Technical Analyst Jonathan and I confirmed that this likely doesn’t change much, but this is a little bit more convincing than when Tambellini suggested he’d be ‘open to moving the first overall pick’ last year.
Just for kicks, I’ll predict Yakupov wears 19 next year.
