However, after seeing Jones in this WJC, i will have hard time picking anyone before him in the upcoming draft. But if we doesnt become the ''few past year Oilers'', i think he`ll be gone when we`ll pick.

Center depth is ok in this years draft top 10 or even 15 imo. So, what i`m hoping for is, we pick a top line potential center. He`ll be about 5 years away from reaching his potential anyway, so that could be a good thing in case we are able to keep Getz.
Was Getzlaf expected to be a first line center when we drafted him? These things don't play out according to what scouts think on draft day.
