The Oilers get a call from the team picking 6th who really want Drouin. Do they trade down knowing they're gonna get either Monahan or Barkov at the 6th pick for another early 2nd, or a player who is actually a good bottom six player or #4 defenseman? I guess it depends how close Monahan and Barkov are in the scouts' eyes.
Without a doubt you take Drouin. The guy is Claude Giroux v2.0. You have no idea what your team might look like in 5 years, so you take the BPA. Trade Gagner + 2014 1st for a bigger C (if that trade is out there).
