Totally hypothetical, just a interesting question. how you value our pick this year vs Nurse. I personally wouldn't.

lol. don't know how to pick fix the poll. Yes, I would trade Nurse for our pick (if another team had it). No, just keep Nurse.

pretty much what I was thinking, but I think our pick has a 1/4 chance of getting him. So, basically I would keep Nurse.

Too early. We could still (theoretically) go on a long winning streak and end up with a 10 - 15 pick. Which would not be worth Nurse. Or, we could totally hit the skids, end up picking first for Ekblad, and in that case, it would be worth way more than Nurse.

Way more than Nurse? I dont' think Ekblad is way better than Nurse. He is better, but, it isnt' that big of a diff.

The poll options are confusing. Both choices have the Oilers keeping Nurse. I think you mean keep the pick?

But yeah, I absolutely would not trade the pick if drafting Ekblad was a possibility.

On the subject of Nurse, this can't be good:

Habs/Sharks fan here.

No, I wouldn't, simply because I don't think you guys will get Ekblad. After that, it's a bunch of forwards that are MAYBE a bit better than Nurse, but are also a year behind in terms of development. It's not worth the risk. If you could get Ekblad, the 10000000000% yes, imo.

Yes, yes it is. At this point in time, it's probably close. In the future, Ekblad has star, #1 d-man potential. Nurse has very good top pairing d-man potential, imo.

I like Nurse but I hope he isn't letting the negativity of not getting on the WJ team get to him. Dumba didn't make it for what? 2 years?

I don't trade him to get Ekblad. Maybe something else but he is our best prospect atm.

I hope the Oilers are patient with him. Hopefully he goes back to junior next year and gets to play in the wjc. Then the year after go to the AHL.

Disagree. Ekblad, cleary has a high ceiling, but I don't see the huge ceiling differnce, or probability they get there. Larsson was a massivly highly reated D man to, he has stumbled into being a solid D man, but not what was expected, every one called him the next Lidstrom.

Any way. I don't see the big diff. Both have high ceilings, boht have question marks on getting there. Of course I take Ekblad if I could pick between the two, but, it isn't that big of a diff.

I think Nurse will be the type of player we would regret giving up on - but it will be about 5-7 years before we fully see his potential as a bruising D who can also fly and join the rush.

He's going to be a big kid too once he starts eating some more of his Aunt's Chunky soup

The only prospects in this draft I'd trade Nurse for in a vacuum are Aaron Ekblad and Sam Reinhart. Looking at our team makeup, the only prospect I'd trade him for is Ekblad.

Our pick this year is likely to be in the same range as where Nurse was picked, but probably not much later. Nurse has a year of development on whoever else we'd get and has been trending well, but our pick has a chance of being earlier or even winning the lottery.

Overall, I'd keep Nurse. It's the more conservative choice, but I think the odds of our pick considerably outperforming Nurse aren't that great.

Why do you say that? Do you watch them both on a regular basis?
