7. Oilers will trade #32 to move up into the 1st round
8. nobody!
How would the Oilers trade number 32 to move up if nobody moves down? Are they going to make a pick out of thin air?

1. Galchenyuk
2. Subban
3. None of these...SUBBAN will go top ten...Vasilevski will go 15-20...
4. Dumba
5. 26-30
6. MARK JANKOWSKI (it depends on which ranking org you this defines the sooner than expected level with this wild card of the draft--if he goes mid-teens THAT is sooner than expected compared to the level Central Scouting suggests at #43 NA skater--so a bit after a third of the 2nd round is pst for them -this difference compared to Craig Button's ranking of #14 overall is a HUGE "GAP" in ranking perception and this expectation of where he SHOULD get drafted....So I'm betting it is closer to Button's expectation than Central couting's view..THE ISS does not have him in their top 30 --so their "expectation is later than sooner...Yet i think SOME nhl team will go wildcard earlier than"most" consensus thinks --not exactly a BLAKE WHEELER out of the blue surprise pick--sice SOME have JANKOWSKI as a mid-teens pick but as the wildcard he will have a huge gap in expectation of where the pundits think he will go ..somewill say earluer than you think ..others will say only a 2nd rounder on RISK due to his low level of competition..Yet some team that is willng to swing for the fences in an ovrall perceived weak forward crop wil RISK on him earlier than pure "logic" would suggest ...logic says take a kid with more sure-fire probability of being at least an NHL'er ---logic denied says IF this kid puts it all together given his special talent and athleticism THEN the payoff is too great to merely accept taking a likel "average" but certain NHL'er...this is why we say he is the wildcard for thois draft..A Home RUN or a wasted pick? That is the big bet...
