This is always relevant for Oilers fans, so may as well put this in here now:

That Alexis LaFreniere kid might look really good on McDavid's left wing!

Another 2020 Draft preview, this time from Bob McKenzie of TSN.

Like Button, McKenzie outs Lafreniere at the top of his list.

Finally. This is the #1OA pick that will put us over the top.

So you're just giving up on the lottery win? We've stumbled recently but winning lotteries is what this franchise does best.



You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.

Giving up? No way. We clearly have this one in the bag. We're owed one. It's been forever since we picked #1OA.

Sportsnets latest 2020 draft rankings (Sam Cosentino)

https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/sportsnets-2020-nhl-draf t-prospect-rankings-january/

Lafreniere has been the #1 guy in all the draft polls from the beginning. No reason to have anyone else ranked at the top. as far as I can see.

I'm guessing that the Oilers will be picking somewhere around the middle of the first round. Any ideas who they should be looking at?

They should take the best available forward whoever that is. Make sure he can skate. I would shy away from anyone super small as it can take them a lot longer to be effective just based on size and strength.

I see they have a goalie listed really high. If I am any team, I wouldn't take a goalie with a high pick. Goalies usually take a long time before they develop and it seems to be a complete mystery at times which ones work out and which ones don't.

Whoever they pick, they need to hit on and that player has to be looking like a legit player within a normal time period. Normal time period in my opinion for a first round pick being 2-3 yrs tops from when they were drafted. A legit player is someone who is in your every day NHL line up and contributing in some way. Top 6 preferably but if he is a good, every day bottom 6 guy, that's fine.

As much as I have had many an argument about JP and development, needing 4, 5, or more years before you might be a NHLer is not acceptable for a first round pick. At the end of this season, starting next year JP will going into year 5 of his development and he will still be a question mark. If there is a player who might project as being really good but it takes 5 or 6 years past his draft to get there, pass. 5 or 6 years might as well be a lifetime. Save the 5 or 6 yr projects for later round picks.

Pretty entertaining to see the Sharks barely above Ottawa in the standings. Would be great if the Sharks pick ended up being a lottery winner for the Sens. Sens fans need some love.
