i think the top 8 players will be chosen as listed, just not in that order. if the Sabres take Ekblad, the Oilers, if they keep their pick, would likely take Draisaitl due to his size. the Oil still need size with the talent in their top 6, and if Draisaitl plays center, is a great replacement for Gagner. i agree as well that Ehlers will likely go anywhere from 9th to 13th, at which time there's no way Detroit passes on him if he should still be there! from about #14 down all seems like a crap shoot to me.
