Default Question about the Oilers #1 picks

Which of the recent Edmonton #1 overall picks was the most highly touted coming out of juniors? Hall, RNH, Yakupov...

Hall, and it really wasn't even close. 2010 was touted as one of the strongest top draft classes in history, and Hall and Seguin were both heavily hyped.

2011 wasn't supposed to be very strong, and although 2012 was good, Yakupov wasn't hyped nearly as much as Hall (although the team itself was).

No question Hall.

Big debate was Hall or Seguin for Oilers. I wonder now if they still take Hall over Seguin.

TSN hyped the thing to hell, but it was pretty obvious the Oilers were going to take Hall.

I'd still take Hall today. Aside from the injuries, he's been a very good player, who's only going to get even better. Plus, Edmonton would have two #1 centres (Nuge and Seguin).

Although the difference between the two isn't as much as it was before, I'd still take Hall.
