    Fail.

    It's called the acquisition of Brayden Schenn forcing Brent Benson down to the Blades third line, and into a new checking role.

    Benson has done a great job at both ends of the ice, despite a lengthy goal scoring streak (ended a 14 game drought last game against Edmonton).

    And hell, the guy isn't going to get drafted because of his offensive abilities. Benson WILL be drafted because he has a high end motor, is very good defensively and can fill a number of different roles to a tee.

    Puempel at 30!? Seriously? I know he just had hip surgery but if he really falls that far someone is getting a steal.

    I would not be shocked to see Oleksiak break into the top 10 by the draft.

    Because he's a very projectable player. Big body, solid skating, solid hockey smarts, solid hands. He's a pretty safe pick and has looked good against college teams.

    He's right where he should be (he could be even higher).

    Think about the chances of stealing Pumple in the second round (after watching that list), that would be INSANE.

    Nermark at #29, interesting. Haven't seen him in the 1st round for a long time, if ever.

    If Zibenejad stays there I want to see the Oilers trying to trade LAK 1st + Omark/Cogliano to move up and grab him.

    They changed a lot more this time then last, a few questionable selections but still.

    I'd much prefer he falls to 31:naughty:

    I really want the Oilers to land McNeil with the LA pick, but I don't think thats realistic given he is playing lights out lately, much like the Kings. Now turning my hopes to Oleksiak (who also might be unrealistic) or Myles Bell. Perhaps the OP, given his extensive knowledge of the Blades, could give an Oiler fan an extensive scouting report on Bell?

    Nicklas Jensen at number 11? :amazed:

    I was a fan of his at the beginning of the year, but lately I haven't had a TV. Has he really played well enough to deserve that ranking?

    Also I think that Boone Jenner should still be a top 30 pick, but again I haven't got to see a lot of OHL hockey lately.

    Could an Ontarian please enlighten me on these issues?

    Yeah, he's really slowed down the last half of the year. More insight into why exactly? I've only seen him once live this year.

    I still like him as a late 2nd round pick.

    So Edmonton gets to choose between:

    1. Tomas Jurco
    2. Zack Phillips
    3. Vladislav Namestnikov
    4. Jonas Brodin
    5. Stefan Noesen
    6. Boone Jenner
    7. Mark Scheifele

    Those are some pretty good players to not make the first round... Not sure if I missed anyone else.

    Oscar Klefbom is just outside as well and may be as attractive a pick for many as Brodin, depending on performance during the U18's.

    The whole team has slowed down and he plays with crappy linemates so i think that may be it. The team moved him to RW as well so maybe he is adjusting to that? I see the talent in him he is big, a good skater, great shot, and he is aggresive but he just isnt putting up points. He is immature, takes a lot of penalties and also constantly runs his mouth on the ice. Kid has potential but i wouldnt take him any higher than mid second

    It's hard to pinpoint because I wouldn't say confidence, but a mix of inconsistency and just lack of fire. He is blowing his last season stats out of the water, but he can be so much more. In the first half he was playing a top line roll and now he's playing more of a 3rd line grinder with time of the PP. The season has been long and very frustrating for the Thunderbirds and I would take this part of the reason. Just like the Avs this year.

    Assuming the Oilers pick first, I wonder if they will take Nugent-Hopkins over Larsson. They definitely could use a first line center(he could make the perfect compliment to Hall) as well as defense

    If Ottawa manages to grab one of these two players, they are getting the most underrated prospects in this draft. They both have boatloads of potential and should be considered top 10 prospects.

    They'll probably take Couturier because he weighs more.
