I think Drouin will fall to fifth.

1. Mack
2. Jones
3. Nichuskin
4. Barkov

More "proof" that Edmonton has Monahan at 5, Nurse at 6, Valeri at 7:

Bob Stauffer just predicted that the Oilers would select Nichushkin at 7 if we keep 7, "assuming Monahan is off the board", and Stauffer has been a big advocator of Nurse to Carolina.

If they draft Nichushkin that pretty much means PRV is available right?

Not really. Them as our 2 and 3 left wingers would be ideal

Hall-Nichushkin-Paajarvi on the left side would be really good.

I agree that looks like it could be a great LW combo for years to come, but when we're as weak as we are at center and D it doesn't make sense to keep on stockpiling the wings. Unless we wan't to just propose a rule that face offs don't exist and no back checking allowed. Who know's that might actually be entertaining.

Edit- Not that I'm against drafting Nichushkin if he's there. I like PRV a lot, but if a much higher upside LW is what we draft then he does become expandable to use on a D or center upgrade.

If he becomes expandable, I say we keep him. Turn him into a 9 foot nightmare for defences to deal with

If we draft Nichuskin, it does make PRV more expendable. The biggest worry I have with trading PRV is that our depth on the left side currently stinks.

Hall - Smyth - ...

Smyth should not play on the second line anymore, and even with Nichuskin, who we'd likely start in the big leagues, it's not that great.

I just failed on an all new level haha, though expandable players could be the way og the future, it would really neutralize chara at least.

Really starting to get excited about Nicushkin. Turned down khl money to be in nhl next year. Even if he plays on 3rd or 4th line for next coupla years can bring size skill exuberance. But fine with nurse and monahan too. As long as we keep the pick and dont go of the board im good.

If Nichushkin pans out...there's our Hossa or our poor man's Malkin

I pine for the days the NHL Entry Draft doesn't equal my playoffs.
