As long as the Oilers don't "slip" to 8th... then they'll be in danger of a team from 9-14th winning the lottery and knocking them down a spot to 9th (although it's a slim chance that a really long shot team wins it... still possible).

At 9th they'd be looking at Pulock/Ristolainen/Zadorov/Lazar. Still good but a little deflating from being in the running for Barkov/Monahan/Lindholm.

Even if they end up trading the pick... a top 6/7 pick is obviously better trade bait than a #9 pick.
