The above explains why Darnell Nurse is not coming to Edmonton. The Oilers need forward talent for the pipeline- specifically either size on the wing (Nichuckin) or a second line center with size (Barkov, Monahan)
If one of Klefbom, Marincin, Gernat, Musil or Simpson turns into a legit top 4 dman I'll consider us lucky.

You don't pass on a top-10 d-man with first-pairing potential because you have a bunch of B-level D prospects that half the teams in the league have.
