If everything goes right tonight we are picking 5th overall which would give us a good chance at Barkov.
If the decision is between Gormley and Nurse, I would take Gormely. Nurse *might* end up being better in the long run, but Gormley comes with the added benefit of having had more time to develop and would have a bigger impact on the Oilers sooner. Adding Gormley would make the Oilers better over the next 3 to 4 years than Nurse would.
P.S. If Barkov, Monahan, or Lindholm are on still on the board, I wouldn't trade the pick though.
