Well, bottom 7 seems pretty likely for the Oilers now unless they pick up more than 5 or more points (and even then it's still likely). 5th would be awesome but I'm happy with any of the prospects available in that top 7. I'm guessing it goes like this based on value:

1. Jones
2. Drouin
3. Mackinnon
4. Barkov
5. Nichuskin
6. Lindholm
7. Monahan
8. Nurse

I'd take any of those players to be honest. I'd rather not gamble on the Russian factor in Nichuskin but it seems pretty likely that we'll walk away from this draft with either a quality centreman (one of Barkov, Lindholm, or Monahan) or a top defenceman in Nurse.

Ristolainen seems like a bit of a wild card - I've heard nothing but good things about him and given his all-around game, I could see a team picking him higher than expected in the draft.

I'd still love to walk away from this draft with Barkov but Monahan or Lindholm would be great behind RNH as well.
