If the Oilers are to move their first, this is the year they'd do it considering their recent moves in the front office, and the widely documented urgency to perform that they have, along with MacT's continued use of 'risk'.
They know they need more depth at defence and forward, toughness etc, and aren't going to want to wait for an 18 year old player to come around, like they have with Yakupov, RNH, Hall, Eberle, MPS.
Coburn for their 2013 1st seems fair to me (At its current position). If they continue to tank, we likely have to add.
This is a deal I make at the draft, only if a player they want, has fallen to that pick, such as Nurse. Then use our second 1st in combination with something else (Read?) for a young puck moving NHL'er.
Just thinking out loud.
