Speculation: Grigorenko to Edmonton. Is that even fair?

So Edmonton is probable to get the 2nd pick and would be able to draft Grigorenko. Eberle, Hall, RNH, Grigorenko... Shouldn't there be a rule against getting top picks more than 3 yrs in a row? I'm not an EDM hater or something. And I honestly expected them to do better this season. I was just thinking if that is a fair situation by now.

It's fine. When ELCs are up, let them deal with that.

sure, they're offense will be amazing, but they're D will still suck and they're goaltending will be mediocre.

It's the universe's way of apologizing to northern Alberta for TambLoweini

We'll have 0 problems with that, don't you worry.

And if only you weren't allowed to suck so much consistently.

I think within a couple of years their defense will be just fine, but they do need goaltending help.

The Oilers with Grigorenko will still have a good chance next year to draft Mackinnon!

Oilers are a bad team, so they get a good pick. Honestly, how hard is that to understand?

If they keep getting high picks year after year, the elite prospects they're getting must not be helping very much.

Fair's fair.

Have you been following Dubnyk in 2012?

A defense you could cut with a dull, plastic knife.

Sure, if they want to spend $28M on 4 forwards, go ahead.

lol worthy if they draft another forward.

Hard to do when you have very bad hockey players on the team.

Yeah I have, especially since Nick got traded there.

The best way to describe Dubnyk is inconsistent. I have seen some of the worst goals in pro hockey scored on him this year, and also some of the best saves.

I am not yet sure he is a day to day NHL goalie.

What would be really unfair is if Columbus took Murray and allowed Edmonton to take Yakupov.

Three future 40 goal scorers (Eberle, Hall, Yakupov) on one team would be ridiculous.

It's the way the league is set up. Do you want to strip a few players off the Penguins too?

They dealt with the season, they get the pick.

Always take the best player first. Trade later.
