You gotta fill a top 6, I think they gotta go BPA unless someone offers them a ton of picks to trade down.

You'd still be building two dynamic lines.

They grabbed Klefblom with their extra 1st rounder at 19, and Musil at 31. Thats basically two first rounders (31 is the 1st pick of the 2nd) on D.

Klefblom was really good at the WJC too getting on the Tourney All-Star team (though i thought it should have been Brodin instead, with Klefblom as an honourable mention).

Oilers are building a very nice core. Give them time.

Same was said about the Blackhawks, Capitals and Penguins about 6 or 7 years ago.
