I jsut can't see them passing on Picard/Chipchura/Radulov, and if they are gone, then someone who was previosly slotted to go in the top 10, has fallen into our lap. Montoya is rated #1 NA goaltending prospect in this draft, but he is by no means a sure thing, a "franchise tender", and if you look back 2 drafts, we selected the #1 NA goaltending prospect then, JDD. I would be happy if we took Dubnyk/Shantz in the 2nd round, and used our first selection on a bonafide scorer that we can not seem to trade for due to salary, so, this is the only way i view the Oilers have of gaining one, the draft.
