The big question is, are the Oilers going to blow their brains out trying to move up to select Dylan Guenther of the Oil Kings? Or are they passed that kind of stupidity?

He's ranked #3 overall. Granted it's early. So you expect the Oilers to tank and be looking for a top 5 pick?

I expect that if the Oilers ended up picking in the top-5, that management would say they did it on purpose...

I was thinking really dumb trade. Something would have to go really wrong for them to be drafting top-5.

Teams value first round picks extremely high these days. Most won't even move down a couple of spots so I don't know what kind of stupid trade you think the Oilers could even make hypothetically. Unless he wants an insane amount of money, I think trading Nuge would not be a good idea but no chance he would get a top 5 pick.

Already looks smarter and more serious than 90% of our roster. Maybe it's just the glasses, but I choose to believe it's much more than that.

Isn’t the NHL considering changing up the draft for this year?

The opportunity for a boom/bust pick has got to be scary for every scout. The best player might come from the 4th round or the whole draft could be a turd party. Who knows?

Too bad we are looking like a lottery team.

Here's hoping it really is a weak draft class. If the season were to end today and draft rankings were to hold, we'd see:

Anaheim - #3 pick
Los Angeles - #6 pick
Calgary - #7 pick
Vancouver - #8 pick
San Jose - #11 pick
Seattle - I don't know what the deal is with their pick but it will be a high one too.

Our divisional rivals are going to dominate the early part of this draft - and that's before they start selling off pieces for more picks.

One good thing is that scouting has not been easy this year. Way less sample size of games, way less scouts traveling around.

That is, if you believe that scouts bring real value...

Seattle has the 3rd best odds of winning the draft, just like the 3rd last team.

I'm not sure how the recent lottery system changes affect them though.



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

So where do they slot if they lose the lottery?

Either just above or just below the actual third place team. I believe, if neither wins the lottery, the Kraken draft ahead of 3rd worst.

Golden knights got pushed down two spots in 2017 but went ahead of Arizona.

Bob McKenzie's "mid-season" draft rankings.

https://www.tsn.ca/owen-power-the-unanimous-no-1-in-tsn-s-mi d-season-draft-rankings-1.1626057

Oil Kings winger ranked in top tier.

"If Power were to be unseated as either the top defenceman and/or top prospect overall, the two leading candidates to do so finished in a dead heat for No. 2 on our mid-term rankings list.

One is Edmonton Oil King right winger Dylan Guenther, a goal-scoring shooter who is also quite adept at making plays and playing ultra-competitively in the hard areas around the net."

Guenther seems like a hard -working winger who seems to be rising on the charts. He's from Edmonton. Hope he doesn't end up on some endlessly hopeless team - like Calgary, for example.

Kid who lives in my backyard is ranked in the first round now - Evan Nause. He's always outside shooting pucks in the summer. Talks to my kids over the fence when they are out there. Really good kid. Not many NHLers ever out of NB. This kid has a shot, and I hope he makes it.

You lock this kid up in your back yard in a pen so his only exposure to the outside world is talking to your kids through the fence? And yet he is a top ranked hockey prospect? Impressive!!

How does draft order work.. Edmonton is out after the 1st round, Montreal and Islanders advance to 2nd.. don't they drop in the order, and Oilers move up? Or is there only draft order re-seeding after the division finals?

The 16 teams that didn't make the playoffs pick in inverse order of regular season points (subject to magic balls drawn tonight) except for Arizona cuz they got caught. First round we just pretend the number 11 doesn't exist

Picks 17-24 go to the first round losers in inverse order of regular season points, rinse and repeat for picks 25-28 and then for picks 29 & 30. Picks 31 and 32 go to the Stanley Cup loser and winner, respectively.

Oilers pick #21

Should be 16 teams missing playoffs (including Seattle) minus 1 for Arizona doing bad bad things, then St Louis, then Nashville, then the Oilers.

Oilers pick #18 (I think)

We'll also pick behind one of Montreal and Winnipeg, and possibly the Islanders too. Making the 2nd round isn't enough to change your position.

You are correct, I was looking at a site that was using regular season rankings. Edmonton's pick is #18

Picks 17-24 go to the first round losers in inverse order of regular season points, rinse and repeat for picks 25-28 and then for picks 29 & 30. Picks 31 and 32 go to the Stanley Cup loser and winner, respectively.

Oilers pick #21


Should be 16 teams missing playoffs (including Seattle) minus 1 for Arizona doing bad bad things, then St Louis, then Nashville, then the Oilers.

Oilers pick #18 (I think)

You are correct, I was looking at a site that was using regular season rankings. Edmonton's pick is #18


I don't think it is set in stone right now.

2021 NHL Draft order

1. Buffalo Sabres

2. Seattle Kraken

3. Anaheim Ducks

4. New Jersey Devils

5. Columbus Blue Jackets

6. Detroit Red Wings

7. San Jose Sharks

8. Los Angeles Kings

9. Vancouver Canucks

10. Ottawa Senators

11. Chicago Blackhawks

12. Calgary Flames

13. Philadelphia Flyers

14. Dallas Stars

15. New York Rangers


After that:
#16 is either the Canadiens or the Jets, depending on who loses this round.
#17 is the Islanders or the Oilers, depending on whether the Islanders advance to the third round.
#18 is the Oilers or the Bruins, depending on if the Bruins advance.
#19 is the Wild
#20 is either Tampa or Washington depending on Tampa/Carolina
#21 is either Washington or Toronto depending on Tampa/Carolina
#22 is either Toronto or Pittsburgh depending on Tampa/Carolina
#23 is Pittsburgh or Florida depending on Tampa/Carolina
#24 is Florida or Carolina or Vegas or Colorado depending on three different series this round.

As far as I can tell, the only team outside the top 15 who's set in stone now is the Wild.

I think we moved up when Toronto got upset. One of Montreal and Winnipeg is a semi-finalist and get hosed on their pick, moving to the final four. We can move up another spot if the Islanders beat the Bruins, so fingers crossed and go Ebs!!!

everybody else remains the same.

EDIT: Watched the 10 minute actual draw video. Arizona was not chosen for either 1st or 2nd.

Love it. Buffalo with 2 LHD as their #1OA picks to continue their never ending rebuild :)

And good to see the Ducks bumped.



And Hallsy was there for the tank! In a way his #1OA supremacy continues.

Current Order.

What if Cossa is available at #19, and Oilers trade down a few spots for a 3rd, and still able to draft Cossa a few spots lower down, if a few of the next teams in the order value a skater more than a goaltender?

Out of the next 6 teams drafting after the Oilers; Boston, Minnesota, Detroit, Florida, Vegas*, Columbus .. who would need to draft a skater over a goaltender? Actually Boston might want a goalie prospect, so my whole scheme would fall apart, but they also have a lot of holes on D. Yzerman might want one too.. but he has bigger holes to fill.

* could beat Colorado and move down..

1	Buffalo	
2	Seattle
3	Anaheim
4	New Jersey
5	Columbus

6	Detroit
7	San Jose	
8	Los Angeles	
9	Vancouver	
10	Ottawa	

11	Chicago	
12	Calgary	
13	Philadelphia
14	Dallas	
15	NY Rangers

16	St. Louis-
17	Winnipeg
18	Nashville
19	Edmonton
20	Boston

21	Minnesota
22	Detroit (WAS-x)
23	Florida
24	Vegas
25	Columbus (TOR-x)

26	Minnesota (PIT-x)
27	Carolina
28	Montreal
29	New Jersey (NYI-y)
30	Columbus (TB-y)

31	Colorado

I could see the Sabres trading down to grab Wallstead (sp?). After that Cossa could easily go in the 10-12 range. A few teams have needs for a stud goalie prospect. Flames fans would go ballistic. Kidd and Krahn likely sour the fan base on drafting a tender early.

Flames already have that Dustin Wolf kid, they’re pretty high on him. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him backing up Markstrom relatively soon.

I don’t see Buffalo trading down. They may trade up to get back in the top 15, but I’m not so sure that happens either. I also don’t think Wallstedt goes before 10. I wouldn’t be shocked if Chicago takes him.

There’s a real possibility Cossa is there for Edmonton at 19. But they’re not smart enough to take him.

I mean, you've seen who Cossa played his junior with right? There is no chance they don't take him if he's available.

Eeeeeeh, touché. Pretty big detail I overlooked there.

Welcome to the Oilers, Sebastian.

I could see the Sabres entertaining the idea. Powers is another LHD D and he might return to school. They’ve already got Dahlin and Pegula doesn’t seem like the patient type. Plus with the Eichel divorce? Buffalo will be the most interesting off-season story.

If only projections that late always panned out. Lindholm, Rantanen. Be nice to hit one out of the park in this draft. Steal a Pastrnak late in the first. Dare to dream.
