Well, as of right now we're sitting with the 6th pick. Carolina is 2 points back with an extra game played but they have more ROW than us. So if Carolina wins 1 more game than us in their next three, we'll be in the top 5.

I know there's a lot of love for Monahan around here, and I'm a huge fan, but if we're in the top 5 there's literally no way we should be picking him. Even in the top 6 it's kind of eh. At #7 he's a no-brainer but anywhere before that is questionable IMO.

#1 Jones
#2-4 Mackinnon, Barkov, Drouin

Would love to get into that top 4 but that would require TBL to go on a hot streak and EDM to go winless pretty much.

I think a lot of people will discount Nichuskin due to Russian factor and him being a wing but I'd think long and hard about taking him over Monahan. Talent-wise, it's not even close.

That being said, potential draft slots we're looking at the 4-10 range for our draft pick. IMO the Oil Draft board should look like..

1) Jones
2) MacKinnon
3) Barkov
4) Drouin
5) Lindholm
6) Nichuskin
7) Monahan
8) Nurse
9) Zadorov
10) Ristolainen/Lazar/Horvat/Shinkaruk
