Not at all.

I can't say that the Oilers would trade the pick or not, but if they did, I'm quite confident that it wouldn't be for a guy like Gormley.

If MacT trades the pick outright, he would want a player who could come in and be a difference maker at the NHL level immediately. Gormley might be ready to make the jump to the NHL this coming season, but not in the capacity the Oilers would need him to be if they're giving up a top 10 pick in this draft. Especially if it ends up in the 4-7 range. The Oilers need established NHL defensemen, not another prospect. Gormley might not even be ahead of Klefbom (who most expect to be on the Oilers' roster next season) on their depth chart.
