I'm honestly shocked they're not gonna go D. Isn't that by far their biggest need in terms of 1st round talent? Just doesn't make sense...

It makes tons of sense, We need "D" that can play in our line up right NOW! not in 2-4 years especially when we have enough D prospects in our pipeline that is developing nicely like Oscar Klefbom, Martin Marincin, David Musil, Martin Gernat. This cannot be stressed enough.
Look at our center depth, All we have is Anton Lander who could be a 3rd/4th line center and Travis Ewanyk who's a question mark to ever turn out more than a AHLer. That's it. Sean Monahan will fit in nicely if we have an opportunity to draft him.
People got to learn how to use punctuation. On our radio ads the other day a black man's wallet was reported as missing. Instead of a man's wallet black in colour missing a black man's wallet is missing.
Man if this actually happened... If the draft went in this order... damn, I'd be happy. Very happy. Heck if Monahan was available at 7th, I wouldn't be surprised to see Edmonton still trade the pick for something very significant.
If Edmonton if buying out Horcoff they'll be able to afford taking on some salary and a guy like Monahan could land them a very capable body.
