1) He plays on the Oil Kings, so it is easy to scout him.
2) He plays on a pairing with Martin Gernat, another Oilers draft pick. The idea of having them as a future pairing on the Oilers is appealing because they will have played before and know each other's style. (you can argue Marincin+Gernat is better but whateves)
3) The Oilers are expected on many people's accounts to just miss a playoff spot, giving them a pick in the low teens (more or less where he is expected to go).
but Oilers stuff aside, does anyone have any opinions on the guy?
Go to go some games when he gets healthy and find out yourself. He hasn't been playing great this season. Has the tools but is having a hard time putting it together IMO. Really needs to concentrate on making good simple plays and getting pucks through the D and then the game will come to him a bit easier right now but he can look like a bit of a clunk out there right now. Honestly, wouldn't be very happy if the Oilers drafted him with a top 15 pick.
