Best Oilers draft pick ever

Just to trying to get a little positive thought around here, what is the Oilers best ever draft pick?

Since there is a new topic over the worst ever 1st round pick, which btw has been discussed/digested in idk how many other threads, I haven't seen one discussing best ever pick. Open it up to all rounds, who is the best ever pick in any round since 1978? Keep the bad pick to the other thread.

2010 Taylor Hall. Other than that it would be Mark Messier, Paul Coffey and Jari Kurri.

I don't see how can go with any other pick but Messier. What a steal at 48th overall.

Yeah I had to look it up but I at least knew it was in the 3rd round

I see more potential in players like Kadri and Pietrangelo than Hall. He's probably the next Alexandre Daigle. Well, at least he can represent Canada in the Spengler cup, in the future coached by another fired oiler coach.

you are joking right?

McGuire always pumps the highly touted prospects...did it to Tavares, Stamkos and Crosby

this kid is the real deal

I dont listen to Pierre McGuire. I watch and figure it out for myself. He has more skill than any Oiler prospect, including Eberle and MPS and he is younger. He will be a star in the league. Perennial 40+ goal scorer.

I watched all the games, he doesn't make me get off my chair standing like Ovechkin, Crosby or Toews. Everyone here says let's trade Hemsky and some other stuff for the first pick. Hall does not have the tools of a Toews or Crosby, I'm not sold on this guy.
Perennial 40+ goal, we'll see about that. I wouldn't touch this guy with a ten feet pole. I don't see explosiveness in his game. I'll see what he does if Canada makes it to the semi finals. He'll bring his 'A' game for sure, then we'll see what he's made of when he goes all out.

What? You watched all 3 games he's played for Canada so far. Well, I better ignore every single scout that's been watching him since he was 13, and say he's the next Messier... you've seen him play 3 games!

I guess having Cogs' speed, Tavares' shot, Eberle's soft hands and great vision/smarts is a bad thing...

When Hall scored his first goal in the game against the slovaks it was a beauty. I thought it was halarious that Pierre Mcguire said that goal cemented him being the number one pick. Is it possible for one goal to be that meaningful?

Someone hasn't seen "Tavares' magical play" obviously.

From what i saw from Hall (I only watched the game against Latvia so far, as my access is terrible)...what he reminds me of is a combination of the Sedin twins (most notably the board work and absolute strength on the puck) and Lecavalier. If he had better hands (And in that i mean world class), I would compare him to Jagr, because that is what Jagr is...a really smart player that is stronger on the puck than anyone on the ice. That is Hall...minus the mindblowing dekes...his are only Lecavalier quality

He or Lowe would be next in line I guess. You might also include Hemsky and Arnott. Though I might argue that Esa Tikkanen at#80 in 1983 was a pretty inspired pick.

I would also say that if you look at the Oilers choices in the last few years, they have done quite well. It is still to early to tell how it plays out but the good news is that a fair number of these picks could end up in the NHL and a few could have an impact.

Are you out of your mind? You have obviously never seen Taylor Hall play, i think you're just trying to get a rise out of people.
As for the thread, Messier hands down, nobody else comes close

Well Crosby is the best player in the league so that's an unfair comparison but he most certainly has the ability of a Toews if not more.
His work ethic alone will just about guarantee that he will be an impact player in the NHL nevermind all the talent he has.
I've said this before and i'll say it again, Taylor Hall will be a better overall player than Stamkos and Tavares.
