Heck, they can even give him # 17.

Which means it's safe to say that things don't appear to be jolly between the Oilers and Larionov right now. #nonail

Yakupov would fit nicely next to grabo.
Well well...look who is dropping apparently. Galchenyuk still might be ours folks.

Who was the poster that guessed Burke would pretend he would take a d-man to gain leverage in trade discussion? It's happening

If that's the case, it might be Morgan Rielly.

Kid has good character too. Loved this video on his recovery this year.

If Oilers can get Subban, they may have to send a Petry or Smid Montreal's way, and perhaps 32nd pick as well.

Things are REALLY getting interesting.

why all the hate if we pick a D? every championship team as at least 1 amazing D. we need one as bad as a #1 center. our defence and goalies ruined it last year, not kessel, not lupul or grabovski. we have a ****** defense. maybe after we can package a couple of so-so guys on the blue line to help up front. whoever we get today, i'm happy!!

REALLY interesting is if the Oilers trade the 32nd for PK, and the Habs select Malcolm with it.

But as I said earlier, I believe the Habs are Subban'd out.

Every championship team also has a 1C

Phaneuf is closer to a 1D than Bozak is to a 1C.

i already wanted him to fall, now i want him to fall even more

i dont think a goalie is their target atm tbh, they are looking for forward depth, and size. they have respectable defensemen in their team with very good potential, especiall prospects such as Beaulieu and Tinordi(after memorial cup...im gonna hate going against him)

None of these players are going to help us this year and probably not next. Just take BPA and if its a d-man AND we're deep at D still in 2 years AND we're shallow at forward, then trade the d-man. See Jack Johnson.

Yakupov would play next year in our top 6, theoretically speaking.

Man considering how badly we need high end talent up the middle, we should jump at the opportunity to draft a big and highly skilled C in Grigorenko. Dammit come on Burke.

Excellent example and hence you can never have good amount of these players.
