I think he's the exact type of center that we need to compliment RNH.
IMO, there's very little doubt that Buffalo passes on him if they wind up drafting 1st.
I don't even think that he would be a consolation prize for us after Ekblad. I think in a lot of ways that he fills a bigger need actually.
A lot of you are more confident in the Oilers abilities than i am. I'd be very surprised if they fall out of the bottom 3. Scrivens will hit a rough patch at some point and the team will become exposed as a result.
He basically IS RNH. Not that RNH isn't a great player but we have enough of them!
Ekblad is far and away a better fit with our team now and in the future.
