I hope for the sake of DIO's computer/TV that if Fox, Slepyshev, and Andersson are still on the board for the Oilers 5th pick that they take one of those guys

I like the draft. I cant say i know anything about any player outside round one, but our biggest need outside of nhl ready dmen, which we arent getting with any draft pick past #2 overall, is size up front. We dont even have that at the ahl level.

We have enough d prospects....we need size!!!!

Yes please. Though I wouldn't be surprised if the Wings snag Andersson.

Does Scott Howsen run an NHL team? Or just do daily interviews with Stauffer? heh

Sounds like a team tried hard to get that 2nd overall pick. I'd say it was Burke, but he got the best player in the draft at number 5, they would have taken him with the number 1 overall pick if they had it.

I don't think a lot of teams have time for him. He's useless as a bottom 6 player and there are very few teams that would want him in their top 6...and he doesn't like playing in the AHL. Who would want him? Omark needs to go make big bucks in the KHL.

Detroit gets Athanasiou too. I like their strategy of drafting the most skilled kids, knowing that a few will turn into NHLers, and the odd one will be an impact player.

My list is shrinking. Here's what I got left that I'm looking at:

Anton Slepyshev
Dane Fox
Nikit a Gusev
Nick Ebert
Gianluca Curcuruto
Brendan Troock
Calle Anderson
Josh Anderson


I think Troock is a vending machine the Oilers may be interested in. Heh.

What a bust he was(based on the hype). Making room for Luongo?

That would be my guess. Remember how highly touted he was by Mr. Burke?

Stu usually likes to pick a goalie in the mid rounds.

Mike Houser maybe?

I'd leave that my last choice (6th round is our last pick). I don't think he's going anywhere. Wouldn't he be a UFA if he didn't get drafted?
