I like Bob, but it's pretty contradictory. First he says the Oilers need help now an then he says we should take a defensemen who won't be a difference maker for potentially 5+ years?

If we pick 4-6 I'd be shocked if we picked a defensemen, unless it was Nurse and guys like Barkov and Monahan were already gone.
Remember Phaneuf the impact had when he entered the league? Not saying it would be the same and he would still be a year or two away offensively but Nurse has very similar aspects to his game, although he is much more sound mentally.
