    Zegras. If anyone votes Caufield, they can go piss up a rope.

    Podkolzin all day. He drives offense. He dominates board play. He takes the puck to scoring areas. He outworks his opponents. He plays both ends of the ice. He is exactly what this team needs.

    I'm happy with any of Zegras, Caufield or Boldy.

    Zegras would probably be the best choice for us. But Newhook is very intriguing for a reach.

    Zegras for sure.

    Thanks @Hasbro for doing this! I find a team board mock draft usually has the closest results to how it actually plays out.

    Also lol at the Kevin Lowe comment. :)

    You're an Avs fan, correct? You have Oilers fans thanks for beating the Flames.

    Looks like most of the "fan favourites" are off the board. The conservative types will probably consolidate around Zegras leaving the adventurous to choose from Caufield, Broberg, Knight, Podkolzin and maybe Newhook. Maybe 1 or 2 wild men reaching for Boldy or Soderstrom.

    I would not be thrilled if the draft order plays out this way, although perhaps Zegras is still a good mix of safe and rewarding.

    Zegras is an easy choice for me.

    I love Zegras. Great IQ, hands and vision, but Podkolzin is the right choice here. His energy, play with and away from the puck and non-stop motor are huge benefits. He has a great shot and can move the puck and see the play at high speeds which is what McDavid needs on his wing (or for that matter Nuge as well).

    Zegras and Krebs are interchangeable for me. I would be super stoked to get either one.

    I'm biased with Krebs because he is Alberta home grown in Okotoks, ALTA . :)

    I think Pod is the one of the last players you'd want with McDavid.

    He's so one dimensional offensively. Get the puck, go end-to-end, drive the net. He doesn't use his teammates. He doesn't play off the puck that well.

    Probably Zegras like the majority here. You can't teach the kind of skill, vision and IQ he has. He could be a very special player.

    I wouldn't be upset with either Caufield or York here either though. All three would be great fits for the Oilers.

    Zegras for sure.

    He'd look great with Connor, Leon and Nuge, but he could also drive his own line if he had to.

    In order of preference I have Zegras, Boldy, Newhook
    Does anyone trust our organization in properly handling Podkolzin? :laugh:

    Handling? He's under contract in the KHL for the next two seasons. Let him build up his stock in Russia under the watchful eye of one of the greatest Russians to ever play the sport.

    If he comes over afterwards, he'll be on an ELC until he's 23. It would be insane to let him drop to Anaheim or Vancouver.

    Regardless, he won't make it to us. Literally every ranking had him in the top five.

    I'd have a hard time passing on Podkolzin but I think Zegras is a better fit for our core group.
