Gauthier, Lazar or De La Rose.
To those who are saying that the oilers drafting a 2C would not make them immediately better, that isn't the purpose of a draft. If the oilers want an immediate replacement at 2C at any point in the next 1-2 years they will look to the UFA and Trade market.
The "Ryan O'reilly" scenario is rare and isn't something we should expect.
on a side note: I'm probably overlooking Dickinson as a prospect, but as much as i barely know anything about these prospects anyways, I have no idea about Dickinson, any info on his game? Off the top of my head I might've read somewhere that he was recent callup to the storm and that he is a solid but unspectacular prospect, believed to be a burgeoning talent. Can't recall exactly if that was him...
Of course it all depends where we draft Gauthier has the size that we want but will he be a legit 2C in the NHL.
