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.
I just don't see Nurse as a real option, unless we somehow won our last 2 games and jumped up a few spots. I would hope we'd take any of Jones/Mac/Drou/Bar/Mon/Lind before we looked at him. Project D are fine, but I'd prefer an impact C from this draft.

Remember that day we were in the playoff race? That was awesome.
Yeah it sucks that we went on this skid. But it's still better to get a top 3 pick than to not get one.
