to be fair though, everybody said that this draft was going to be a crapshoot after the top-10, and that's exactly what it has been... look how many guys that were ranked inside TSNs top-30 that were left after yesterday... i don't know if i've ever seen that many before
3...Usually more than that...

6'3" and growing with a rapid development curve? It sounds good to me. And what a name! Has anyone actually seen him play?

His name translates into Jarri Kurri in Finnish, what a coincidence!

Intriguing prospect. Enough projects though, lets take Houser even if he has been passed over in previous drafts. Big goalie.

A little miffed that we passed up on Bozon. There must be something that Stu didn't like because that's Bozon is in his stomping grouns. Khaira seems to be a reach but hey that's what 3rd rounders are for. I do like that he has some size and skill.

He was 5'5", and didnt get drafted, but then a year later was 5'10. Now he is 17, turning 18, and 6'3. By the time he plays for the oilers in 3-4 years, he will probably be around 8'9.

That math checks out. Best. Pick. Ever.

IIRC, our prospect guru Bugg thought JK could be the steal of the draft.

I understand the premise of what you're saying but i think it's kind of silly to say that since there is enough D in the pipeline that it's ok for them to completely ignore any D and to reach for big, physical forwards who are projects.
It's obviously too early to judge these picks but i don't like this method of drafting.
Thrower would have been a great pick. But we can start building on D again next year. Obviously the scouting staff thinks we are deep in many areas, and BARE in terms of potential power forwards

I don't know about the wisdom in cornering the power forward market in a year that the consensus seemed to be that the only thing worth a damn was a potentially epic pool of defensemen, but let's hope that the Oilers prove to be the smrtest guys in the room this year.

I've seen him play, but only 3 times. In Jr A, he was a standout on the ice. For a kid that is growing like he is, his coordination, skating stride, balance etc, is very good. He isn't aggressively physical, but uses his body and frame to his advantage. Very good hands, and seems to have a good sense for the game.

This is an upside pick for the Oilers. If he continues to improve at the rate he has the last two years over the next two, we could have a very good player on our hands. It will be interesting to see if he actually wants to go to college, or if he takes an opportunity in the WHL.

Best post of the draft- kudos to you sir.

Have you considered approaching Edmonton for a job in Scouting? Your logic is flawless!

I'm so excited, Khaira was my favourite "This guys looks awesome, no one seems to be talking about him" pick and I'm so glad my favourite team ended up with him.

They're random picks. But they aren't bad picks.

#1 on my list of later-round steals from this draft.

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...15&postcount=4

"1) Jujhar Khaira, LW (Prince George BCHL)- Although not an eye-popping 360 degree skater, Khaira's 6'3 frame provides ample power for a delectable combination of size, skill and hustle. This year, Khaira added an element of grit and agitation missing from his toolkit last season- although he's still not a traditional power forward. His best asset is a tremendous playmaking game that is bolstered by a quick, deceptive snapshot."

So to sum up: people that have followed the player like him, people that haven't followed him don't like him.

Makes sense.
