I think it comes down to Zadorov or Kujawinski for me.

6'5'' 230lbs, mean, mobile Russian D who's more defensively minded, but isn't without skill or the 6'2'' 205lb, fast, skilled two-way center who reminded me a lot of Rick Nash when I saw him play.


I'd probably go with Kujawinski. I think he has more potential and could be a perfect #2C down the road.

Lots of good choices still at #19.

What about a big skilled forward like Anthony Mantha or Frederik Gauthier?

Gauthier could be the answer to our #2C.

Ive seen Mantha play and was impressed. Not seen much or hardly any of Gauthier though.

I picked Zadorov. It was either him or Morrisey for me. Hopefully we're in a better position to get a center.

I like Zadarov as well. The thought of Drouin in Pittsburgh is scary

Zadorov or Gauthier. Voted Gauthier because, although difficult to predict, I think he'd be an oilers roster player faster, providing help at 2nd or 3rd line center department.

I believe there will be atleast a 48 game season, predicting (and hoping for later pick/better performance) we'll draft in range of ~10th overall. At that range I believe one of (not in order) Pulock, Nurse, Ristolainen, Lazar will be available - would be equally happy with any of those.

I went with Josh Morrisey. I think he fills a need on the back end although Zadorov was tempting.

Yeah I like Morrisey in that spot. Though I would be hoping for Nurse to drop to us in ideal world. We haven't had a player like Darnell in ages on the Oilers. If not Nurse than I would hope Dickenson falls to us.

Haven't watched the Q so can't comment on those players. Have read good things about Mantha...

There is a ping pong ball lottery. Teams start out with three balls each and lose balls for playoff appearances and/or lottery picks in the previous three seasons.

The Oilers would have one ball. I ran a simulation under those parameters and it had the draft order I included in the OP with the Oilers picking 19th.

Since the lockout could conceivably go all year, I thought this may be interesting and possibly give us something to talk about for a bit.

I know people would be pissed with another small forward, but I think you've got to go with Max Domi if things shook out this way. Zadarov would have to be a consideration too.

Yeah more like top 3 lately. It's depressing to think that we will be drafting so high without the benefits of success. I really hope there will be some sort of shortened season. If we draft high, I want it to be because we played well.

I like the cut of your jib.

I'm a big fan of Nurse and Dickinson too.

Voted Gauthier, although seeing Seth Jones in Flames silks would make me sick.

Seth Jones and Nurse patrolling Oilers blue line would be sick. No bodies is getting through.

Do you mind posting how many lottery balls each team will have? If just seems strange that LA is in the top 10 and Pittsburgh in the top 5...

Thank God I'm not the only one. Morrissey drops that far you don't look back.

Even if these teams had just one ball and some other teams had more, it's still random. Therefore random outcome should not be surprising, even though the above result does not even seem very unlikely.

However, some scientists are arguing whether randomness exists at all.

Check the op, updated in there, number of balls in parenthesis and a link to a more detailed explanation of the draft if there isnt any games played this season.

There will be no draft until a new cba is ratified.

Order of players was taken from the ISS list. I believe I altered it once so Anaheim didnt have to take another dman.

Complete ISS list can be seen here.

For simulating the draft order, I used this. You can try it yourself if you like.

I went with Gauthier. Big lanky center. A bit of project pick but someone who might step in a few years from slotting behind RNH.

I can't imagine the Oilers choosing Domi. Too many smallish forwards as it is. Hell of a talent though

Yeah, I've seen him in plain clothes and I would bet the Knights' measurement of 5'10'' 194lbs is generous by about 2'' and 25lbs

If NHL 13 is any indication, Nikita Zadorov has turned out for me. Four years after drafting him he turned into a number three d-man for me.
