A reminder that CBJ have LA and NYR picks.
I think in a perfect world, we win the lottery, and CBJ ends up with 2 top 10 picks, and we flip them the 1st. Can you imagine ending up with say Jones and Monahan?

I've been thinking of other interesting scenarios. Say we won the lottery and MTL was also in the top 5. Would you trade Yak for their pick (assuming Drouin is still on the board) and a prospect (say Tinordi)? They re-unite Galy and Yak, we put together MacKinnon and Drouin (as well as get a big potential shutdown Dman).

sorry, but i don't want to be trading prospects away when we don't yet know what we have. price for one of the top centers in the 2013 draft would be too steep, IMO.

Wasn't sure where else to put this but Lazar is down to 27 on Craig Button's rankings. I have a lot of respect for Button but thats just crazy.

Give me Gauthier. 6'5 can skate and stick handle that also bring a 2 way game.

Not really. He's had a disappointing year to say the least

Thing about Lazar is, he'd be a steal at 27. He may not be putting up the points many scouts would like to see from him, but his overall game is tremendous. He plays in all situations ES, PP, PK, can play center or wing.

This is a kid who is being undervalued due to his 'lack' of production, which is fair, considering his offensive game is what got him most of his attention in the first place.

Not really. You havent seen him play much. Youre just going by the stats.

Living out here I obviously havent been able to see him much, but everytime I've watched him play I have never been impressed with Zach Fucale.

Neither have I, but again, I havent seen him play much and never live. Tristan Jarry has tied the season record for shutouts by an Oil King's tender (3) and there is still roughly half a season to go.

I would be a happy man if we could walk away with Lazar and Jarry at the 2013 Draft. He could be the best goaltender in this draft.

I just hope the season gets played out so Calgary can draft 14th again.
The 13 year Parise/Suter contracts are going to make that difficult.

Barkov, Nurse, Gauthier all have talent along with size. I'm liking what I hear about Nurse. Hope to see him in the prospects game.

Any team drafting in the top 15 could get a franchise type player this year. They won't all turn out of course... but there are so many really solid talents there this year. Last year only Yakupov really stood out clearly above the rest but this year there are many more elite looking players.

It's actually a great situation for the Oilers... if there's any year where you don't have to be a bottom 5 team to still get a really great draft pick this is it.
