Drouin presents an interesting situation for the Oilers. Most likely he'll either be gone or we're picking first and taking Jones, but what if we pick third and he's still on the board?

With Hall, Drouin, Eberle and Yakupov and we'd be stacked down both wings, but with no size. It seems crazy to pick another winger, especialy one under 6 feet, given our lack of depth at center and d.

Would we trade down and take Barkov? Would anyone give us a decent return on one draft spot? Would we trade the pick outright for an established player?

Also, how do people feel about Nurse? If Jones, Drouin, MacKinnon, Barkov and Lindholm are gone, does it make sense to draft Nurse, or trade the pick? You've got to draft dmen at some point, but they take a long time to develop.
