Zadorov, Nurse or even Gauthier

Nurse is the guy I have my eyes on right now. Always a good thing when MacKenzie says he "imposes himself" on other players. The Oilers need more of that.
Yeah, that's why I'm a big fan of Nurse.

He's got all the tools you want in a top pairing defenseman, but he's also a mean SoB. He's got a bit of Pronger in him in that way.

I like Rychel too.

He'd look good in our top6. He's got good size and that knack for scoring goals.
