Hopefully management will draft a smallish forward and then convert him to a position he doesn't normally play.

The younger the better. Barkov is only 17. Maybe management can get some actual tears when they throw him to the wolves instead of just the usual shoulder injury.

I'll(or any other mod) will update with new poll. Anyone want to draw up 5-8 names that should be on the poll?

Continue here.
Sure. I'll assume we pick 3rd, and Jones and Mackinnon are gone.

Drouin
Barkov
Monahan
Nichushkin
Nurse
Lindholm
Pulock
Trade the pick

His job by some weird description was to blow it all up real good. I know a few people that could accomplish this nature of job description. They are unemployed..

Ouch, didn't expect this half way through the season. And to think only one week ago I really thought we had a chance to make the playoffs. Oh well, so much for blind optimism.

Focus now on the Draft. Playoffs are out of question.. Better be our last lottery pick.

I want Drouin or Barkov.

I would gladly trade down and take Monahan. Ideal two way no2 centre who competes hard.

In terms of EV goals we don't even exist.

GF only getting worse from here on in as the NHL has put away the whistles as per annual tradition with 20 or so games left in season.

Now 164mins and counting of goal less hockey played and including an OT and not being able to score in a shootout.

Whats Kelly Buchberger doing? WE need an ugly slumpbuster.
have to mention the fact DD has been playing like crap.
and management that doesn't make any trades as they don't want to give up assets as patience is the key.

even the people who claim it was ok for the Oilers to be a possible lottery team as this year was still about "development" have to admit there is a freaking HUGE problem with the hockey club.
even the kool-aid drinkers have to hope Katz finally pays attention to the team and starts to fire people. starting with lowe and tambo.

Has anybody seen any of these players play, or are we just going off what the consenus seems to be? I bet half of these guys who are 6'2+ aren't different from Couturier....appealing package (big, skilled centre) but really won't lean on anybody and is average along the boards.....

Hopefully we can get one of Mackinnon/Jones

What a line this would be:

Hall/RNH/Eberle

Schultz/Jones

I'm pretty sick of the picks. My preference is we move it.

If we don't... Barkov sounds interesting. So does Monahan.

Lowe would be gone with tambo. They're a 2 for 1 package

This. Those are the two I want. If we are a lotto team would rather see the Oil trade down and grab Monahan and a roster player. Barkov is 2 years away because I assume he would have to do his military service and Monahan would hopefully be in the same boat. I don't want the Oil to add another 18yr old to the line up and call it a day. We need NHL players to support the youth already there.

1-10 for the poll (not how I personally rank them) imo:

1 Jones
2 MacKinnon
3 Barkov
4 Drouin
5 Monahan
6 Lindholm
7 Nurse
8 Pulock
9 Nichushkin
10 Lazar (for all the Oil Kings fans)


You can leave off Jones because he'd likely be pretty much the unanimous #1 pick.

Would be interesting to see who is the consensus #2 choice for HFOil though behind Jones.

I agree with a "trade the pick option" for the poll as well... interesting to see how many want to throw away a top prospect... not that I'm biased or anything.
