But does sound like a decent prospect with some good upside, its just hard to get past the nepotism in this organization.

Oilers trade 3rd rounder (#71) and 5th rounder (#133) for a second round pick (#62) to choose Olivier Rodrigue.

Apparently, his dad works for the team, so of course.

So nepotism aside, this is a good move. Trading two later picks to jump into the second to take the top rated NA goalie.

That's the NFL draft move.

Agreed, very NFL type strategy. As far as Rodrigue goes, I have no opinion, goalies are always to to project and a lottery ticket.
I am not a fan though of giving up picks. Almost every pick after the first round is a lottery ticket and I am of the opinion that more tickets is better.

ETA; just saw him in an interview, holy heck is he small. I skipped his size in NetBogs post and even 156 looks like he weighed in with bricks in his hands. Not sure how he fills much net unless he packs on some size.

The Oilers traded 2 picks for the son of a guy in the organization who plays a crapshoot position that is tough to project.

Sounds like the Oilers.



How could one doubt the braintrust of 6 Cups Kevin Lowe, MacT's E-MBA from Queens, Paul Coffey's skills coach resume, and drunk Gretzky?

Originally I thought they must be trading up to try and pick Jake Wise. Nope. Goalie, and his dad is an Oilers consultant!

Goalies are just wildcards, so I'm not crazy about picking them high, much less moving up to do so. That said, this again, isn't off the board, it was kind of close to where some people had him.

The Oilers Dad connection won't play well, and for good reason. Lowe, Musil, Acton... they've always made the organization at the expense of better players. But it sounds like this is a reasonable prospect in his own right. Even if it is nearly impossible to judge goalies at 18. Still, I personally probably wouldn't have picked a goalie at this spot, or given assets to do so.

Not sure why with Skinner coming.. Talbot not in the long term plans?

He IS a good goal tender though, was selected for this spring's U-18's and was rock solid, looked great.

I'm disappointed about not seeing the other 2 picks just for the curiosity, and someone to follow, the Oilers have been pretty good at those mid rounders lately..

P. Chiarelli math.. T. Hall = A. Larsson, Yak= bag o'pucks, K. Russell = $4.1 M+NMC, G. Reinhart= M. Barzal + A. Beauvillier
