I think it's outstanding because it opens up the possibility of Carolina taking him at 5 and dropping one of the top centers to us.
The Oilers need to get a center out of this draft IMO.
I don't want Nichushkin. He tries that same power move going wide almost every time, doesn't seem to utilize his teammates and has a questionable Hockey IQ. I'm basing a lot of this of my viewings of him at the WJC. He was impressive in that tournament but i think it was more a case of him dominating against physically smaller players than anything else. He won't be able to pull off those moves on a regular basis in the NHL.
