The theory of not drafting a winger because we need a centre is ludicrous.

If we are fifth and the draft board for whatever reason goes...

Jones
MacKinnon
Barkov
Nurse

and we don't take Drouin? May a plague hit Oilers front office. Take the BPA unless you have them equal. It took cajones to take Hall over Seguin when we needed a 1st line C.

I expect though we will see...

Jones
MacKinnon/Drouin
MacKinnon/Drouin
Barkov

That opens the world of possibilities...and I would suggest that Monahan is probably the Oilers pick from 5-8 OV. I expect Nichushkin to do a Grigorenko and fall to 8-12, although a great talent. (Signed for at least one more year in KHL I think).
