I hope the Oilers draft Dumba though. He's the complete package, anyone caught up with his lack of size is stupid. Just like people concerned with RNH's size last year.
Again agree with everything you have to say, but I also think the lateral mobility is something prospects seem to overlook/don't work on enough until they get to the pro-game and see how important it is. I think both Murray and Dumba have such an effortless stride/fluidness to their skating that this will be remedied.
Seeing as how you're a Caps fan, (lets say hypothetically the Oilers land 1st overall) what would you think about 1st overall for Alzner and one of your 1st rders? Russians seem to be the big thing in WAS (Reagan is rolling over in his grave right now), Yakupov certainly seemed to have chemistry with Kuznetsov, is that fair value?
