A bunch who could be #2's, but a Nurse or Ristolainen should solidify our defense core for years.
my gut feeling is that the Oil will only take a d-man at #7 if all the good centers that could be there at #7 are gone. (Barkov, Lindholm and Monahan). i would take Ristolainen over Nurse. Nurse is more of a project and Rasmus is perhaps more along developmentally and could be in the lineup in a few years.....that's if they don't trade the pick!
