It's not a bad list. The closer we get to draft day the more I've come to accept that whoever we draft it'll be a great player. That's assuming we don't move down move out of the first round all together.

If Edmonton turned out with Monahan, Hartman and Jarry, I'd all day long.

Hartman will go before 37

That would be an awesome draft. I agree that Hartman will go before 37 but if he was still there he is a no brainer pick IMO.

I haven't watched much of Dauphin outside of prospects game and under 18 but I've read lots about him and people seem to love him. I've read comparisons to Giroux and people claiming he will be steal of the draft etc

According the scouting reports he needs to add weight but thy love his skill and his tenaciousness

im hoping Mac T can move horcoff/hemsky/belanger etc for a few mid round 2-4 picks. then use those picks to trade into the late first if morrisey falls. then grab Bowey with the 37 and then load up on skill skill skill

I don't know if that's a great idea for a system that's top heavy on stars on the big club, decent in okay d-prospects, and virtually bereft of everything else. Not good for the pro-squad now, not good for cap construction, and really not good for our developmental program.
im on board with you 100%. trading up 2 spots isnt productive when you can get an equally effective player @ 7. we have a young team and now is the time to start drafting for the long term. we dont need players to jump in and be ready. Gagner, hall, RNH and yakupov all jumped straight to the nhl from the draft. i dont think we see that again in edmonton in the next 15 years.....

MacT was saying that they'll be focusing more on skill in the later rounds. Picking guys that have high IQ and work ethic, but maybe need to work on a few things. If you can project them as being better once they improve strength or skating, how much upside would they have? People tend to focus on the guys who are ready ASAP. Dauphin seems like the type that might need a couple of years, but his upside is great. I hope we can get him.

They say the purpose of knowing history is to learn from it, so I have the five worst 1st round picks since 2000. I looked at who we picked and then looked at the five players who were picked after.

2003: Picked Marc-Antoine Pouliot at 22. Could have had Ryan Kesler (23), Mike Richards (24), and Brian Boyle (26). Of course, we also could have had Zach Parise (17), Ryan Getzlaf (19) or Brent Burns (20) if we hadn't traded the 17th pick. This might be the worst draft choke in Oil history.

2004: Picked Devan Dubnyk at 14. Not a bad pick unless you realize that we could have gotten Alexander Radulov at 15 - contract issues notwithstanding.

2004: We also picked Rob Schremp at 25 while we could have gotten Cory Schneider (26) or Mike Green (29).

2000: Picked Alexei Mikhnov at 17. Could have had Brooks Orpik (18) or Anton Volchenkov (21). Would've been nice but I'm not choked about it.

2002: Picked Jesse Niinimaki at 15. Could have had Daniel Paille (20). Nice depth player, but not a big deal.

I agree with you on 2000,2002,2003.

2004 I disagree because Rob Schremp was a very highly touted guy, and many would have been happy with him at 14 on draft day. The fact that he was picked at 25 was something that was lauded as a steal, and although he didn't develop into an NHLer, the pick was correct at the time. Dubnyk is a decent goalie with potential to still be our number 1.

If you go off the board and draft a bust with highly ranked prospects still available, then it is all on the scouting staff.

What's everyone doing for the draft menu wise? It's going to be a long day.

I think I will slow cook a roast of beef and then stick it on the BBQ after saucing it up for the final 1/2 hour.

Probably will go with something easy as a side such as pasta.

I have a good stock of home made wine but I think I'll go buy some beer as well. If it's a hot day Beer will be a must.

Pretty sure will be having BBQ.

I took the day off, but I'm doing anything special for lunch. Maybe just a beer?

It depends what we do. The only thing on the menu might be beer.

I'm on an airplane to Miami, so I'll probably get some pretzels and a few cups of water.

Oilers are the first to go relatively off the board with their #7 pick in this mock draft, fresh off the virtual press:

Beer, nachos and probably wings. It'll be a good day.

Gotta love this BS from a link in their mock. Guess almost everyone this year is better than Hall/Nuge/Yak -
North American Central Scouting chief scout Mark Seidel considers Monahan a more advanced version of Philadelphia Flyers centre Sean Couturier at the same age. Seidel added that in at least three previous recent drafts, Monahan would have been picked first overall.

Huh?

A top 5 talent; Russian Roulette Factor somewhat responsible for slight fall on draft day. He also had an underwhelming World Junior U18s and questionable combine. He may fall even further than this and possibly out of the top 10 as Mikhail Grigorenko did last year. The Devils, however, swing for the fences and want a home run pick for the hometown audience.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't he dominate that tournament according to pretty much everyone?

He dominated the U18 in Feb. Was underwhelming at the U18 in April

last year I celebrated Yakupovs selection with Kolomyka (Vodka)..RNH draft was celebrated with beer, Hall was with Red Wine..
Sunday calls for beer and chicken wings, maybe even Vodka if my pick "Nichushkin" is selected.

That's the mindset I've been getting in to lately. Being at 7th, aka the last to chose from the top 7 that have apparently separated themselves from the rest of the draft there's just too much that's out of our control for any of us to to be overly accurate with our speculations of what's going to go down. We likely just get a choice between which ever ones left, or Nurse.. And that's not a bad position to be in.
