Draft day scenario

IF Florida or Buffalo takes Ekblad would Edmonton at 3 be fine with taking a forward? How far back could they trade down to still get Fleury. What would it cost for a team to move up to 3rd so Edmonton could still land Fleury?

* Yes there is still the lottery so it could all change but for this let's just say Buf or Flo won it.

Edmonton would never draft Fleury
All defensemen with a good chance at 250+ games in ther careers but all are lefthanded.

If Ekblad was there they would take him but if not they have no issue with taking a centre. The Oilers likley have

They would simply take there highest ranked centre on there list.

Probaly down to 10. However, no need for Fluery. As mentioned above, the Oilers have 6 solid left handed D prospects.

They have more need for 5'11 highly skilled Nylander, then for Fluery.

There is only 3 left handed spots on the blue line. Nurse has #1 locked up, Klefbom has #2 locked up, and Marincin has #3 locked up. Simpson/Musil/Gernat will be battling for the 7 spot.

The Oilers either need a #1 RHD like Ekblad, or a top center like Bennett. If those are off the board, trade the pick (3rd OA for Phanuef + Tor 1st)

I imagine the oilers would take Draisaitl. From what i've heard recently their scouts love him. Add in the fact that they need a big physical 2nd line center it just makes sense.

I'm guessing they have him over both the sams.(but not ekblad of course)
