Oddly, I am hoping right now for 5th overall, meaning one of Barkov/Monahan will be the pick. The thought of being 6th overall with the board going...

Jones
MacKinnon
Drouin
Barkov
Monahan

would be my least favourite scenerio. Another consolation is if teh Oilers were to pick around 10 or so would mean reaching for Lazar. Not fond of that either. They wouldn't take him with 5 or 6....or then again...would they?
With Lindholm (and Nichuskin) around we'll end up with a quality player anywhere in the top 6. I'd love to get into the top 4 though... but only team I can really see surpassing us is Carolina.
