There is some noise that not taking Zegras could be rationalized because we needed D or complimentary players more. I disagree strongly and want to point out that if Holland can't sign RNH the missed Zegras pick will be amplified that much more. It takes almost no foresight to see that Zegras would have been great insurance for that and I personally don't believe having a skilled forward would upset our balance even if RNH resigns with us. Right now and every point up to now Zegras was the smart/best pick for the Oilers. True predraft, true at the draft, true in draft +1 year, true in draft +2 year. Who knows what the future may bring but right now it was very obviously a mistake to not draft him. Is what it is. I'm not going to lose sleep about it but if the current trends continue it will be a significant mistake.
