It's actually not a bad position considering from what I'm reading the draft is shaping into tears now and the first tier seems to be the four of Dal Colle, Bennet, Ekblad, Reinhart.

I don't claim to know who's better and I usually don't like defenseman early in the draft but that's mainly ones that don't put up points. Watching Ekblad at the world Juniors I came away more impressed than I expected with his offensive game.

Hopefully we can get Ekblad. After that whomever is left of the 4 that will for sure play center.
I'd take Bennett over Dal Colle. He plays the game with an edge whereas Dal Colle is a little soft for being 6'2" and has been playing the wing this year. I also think Bennett might be a better fit for the Oilers than Reinhart given his physicality. I'd rather they get Ekblad but failing that they should get a good player for #2C behind RNH, although whoever they pick would benefit from going back to junior.
