He plays in a mens league, if he played in the CHL he would rip it apart. If he played in the CHL you would easily have bought the hype.

Well... the oilers need a d-man and a centerman. so, i think they should draft RNH because he's the best player there. The draft is as simple as at. Then make a deal like:
2012 1st rnd pick, 19th pick, cogliano maybe foster and a top prospect (not omark) (maybe more if needed) for the 2nd overall pick. If you are a colorado fan please feel free to add to the deal. Then draft larrson.
Hall RNH Eberle
Paararvi Gagner Omark
Jones Horcoff Hemsky
4th line

Whittney Larsson
Smid Gilbert
Peckham Tuebert (exciting to see)

Then we can push for a playoff spot the following year

they will crap the bed when they get to the podium. Just my guess. Then they will be so upset they will return to their table and trade Hall to the Rangers for their 15th and Wolski

Larsson makes the most sense

You always go with the best player available though, RNH

Well, our centre depth is poor going forward as well, so I think both C and D make sense. Horcoff is locked in as our 3C after next year and the only skilled centre we have is Gagner.

Ideally, we would draft RNH, find a bigger 2C either in the draft, trade market, or free agency, and move Gagner to the wing on our 2nd line.

We could then try to move Hemsky for D help. This, or try to sign Hemsky to a fair deal and move Gagner for help.

Coming from a life long Oilers fan : I have a very very strong gut feeling that we're going to be drafting RNH, I would say there's a 90% chance we draft Hopkins and 10% we draft Larsson.

After Colorado grabs one of Larsson/Landeskog:

#2: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
#7: Dougie Hamilton
First off, if the Avs were content with either Larsson or Landeskog, there's a 100% chance one would be available at #2 so they wouldn't trade up. Also, with Edmonton likely to pick RNH, the Avs don't need to trade up to get one of those two.

Also, I don't think Atlanta would do that deal.

the biggest reason you take RNH over larsson this year is because next year there are more D in the top 10 and you may not be able to get a center as good drafting around 8th which is where i think we will be

Ask Columbus (Nash) or Calgary (Iginla) where Elite wingers get you without a top center.

RNH seems like the perfect fit for Taylor Hall (skating, unreal vision, top notch puck distribution).

We also know that in the last year Steve Tambellini has gone after B.Schenn, Seguin, and Ryan Johansen.

Obvious need at center is obvious (yes they have needs elsewhere too, but not giving Hall a legit center to play with would be massive waste of his talent).

Edmonton drafts RNH

RNH, Larsson though a good player is not even the best D prospect in this draft in my opinion. There are some decent D prospects at 19 and 31 probably so I'd take the potential 1st line center that they haven't had since Doug Weight.

The only confusion about who will be 1st overall is on HFBoards. I'm not a big fan of his but a majority of the scouting reports have Nugent-Hopkins #1(I've read one where he was #2). Larsson, and Landeskog have been mostly ranked 2-4)
I don't see the Oilers making any big changes this offseason. They might try to package some picks up to try and get in the top 10 but I doubt it as the cost will be too high and its a crap shoot from #9 -#35.
Maybe add a Zenon Zonopka for 4th line duties.

Depends....

If the Oilers trade for Bogosian... then they select RNH.

If the Oilers trade for Spezza.... they then select whatever d-man is available @ either 6 or 17.
(Spezza & 6th overall for 1, 17, Cogliano, 31)

I would trade for Spezza IMO and then draft a d-man.

Spezza isn't getting traded. And Bogosian probably isn't going to Edmonton.

The Oilers will pick RNH with the first overall pick. And its kind of a crap shoot as to who will go when from the 10-40 range from what I've heard on Oilers Lunch, so who really knows who will be available. I would be dancing if we managed to draft any two of Schiefle, Zibanejad, Oleksiak, Morrow and Klefbom with the LA pick and the 31st. I know we might get one of those guys, but to ask for both is unlikely.

i just dont think its that easy to go and get a top pairing defenseman. you can score as many goals as you want but if you cant stop them from being scored on yourself your not gonna last too long. it seems you already have a good offensive attack developeing but nothing on the backend
Since the lockout lowe has landed Pronger, Vishnovsky and alot of other dmen (though not stars like the first two). Since Doug Weight left the Oilers landed a year of Sykora as an old man and nylander's wife refusing to come

I'm sure trading Gagner isn't as high on the Oilers list as it is on most of their fans. If Gagner is available, it would be for a Bogosian or something like that, not for a pick.

Hey now...don't forget Michael Peca, who didn't want to come here, and Adam Oates, who should have retired instead of coming here.

For some reason I have a feeling they will trade the first overall. They cant go wrong with Larsson or RNH but I believe they will go with RNH if they have an early pick and try and pry a decent UFA defense.

Take RNH with the 1st overall.

Trade with Winnipeg for Bogo. Management soured on this kid, and he soured on the team. He needs a new location, and Edmonton could be that team. The 19th pick would likely be included and/or possibly the 31st, along with a roster player. Having only 1 year left on his contract and injury issues will probably detract Winnipeg from accepting Hemsky in the deal, but new ownership may want to see a winner and if Hemsky can be healthy, he would go a long ways to helping this team. Hemsky and the 19th likely wouldn't be enough, so a prospect not on the team would likely have to be included, but Edmonton has quite a few good ones to choose from.

Don't expect Edmonton to offer up Hemsky + for Bogosian, especially if that + is a draft pick and a prospect. Cogliano, Smid and the 19th I could see, but if Atlantapeg thinks they will get a Hemsky out of Edmonton for Bogosian, they need to look elsewhere.
