Draft Day!

By , June 24, 2011 9:53 am

Draft...draught...get it... (focus on the beer guys)

Thought I’d throw up a post for discussion today about the draft. I’ll also update this with Oilers specific news during the day (or a hate filled rant of Tambellini).

Today is the day that drafting the Nuge/or Larsson/Trade with Florida/acquire Smyth happens.

Update 5:24pm – Bob McKenzie I think confirmed Smyth to the Oilers for Brule, plus the Oilers picked the Nuge @ #1 and put a sexy new home jersey on him.

Update 7:42pm – Oilers pick Klefbom with the 19th pick

Also, chat added.

    McNeill goes eighteenth to the Blackhawks

  16. Ktown says:

    Wow. CHI fucks us twice at once.

    Oilers pick Klefbom 19th

  18. Steve-O says:

    Coyotes pick C. Murphy 20th

  19. Steve-O says:

    Trade: Chicago trades Brouwer to Washington for the 26th pick

  20. Steve-O says:

    Sens pick Noesen 21st

  21. Bostonoiler says:

    I like Klefbom a lot, he is a bigger guy, physical and can run a PP. ISS says he will surprise and be an All-Star one day. compares to Ryan Whitney.

  22. Steve-O says:

    Anaheim trades 22nd pick for 30 and 39 from Toronto

  23. Bostonoiler says:

    Could the Oilers move up with Cogliano and the 31st to get Joe Morrow?

  24. Steve-O says:

    Leafs pick Biggs 22nd

  25. Bostonoiler says:

    Damn Joe Morrow to the Pens at #23

  26. Steve-O says:

    As BO mentioned, MOrrow to the Pens at #23, Sens picked up Puempel at 24, Laffs picked up Percy at 25, Hawks picked up Danault at 26, Tampa picked Namestnikov at 27 and the Wild picked Phillips at 28th.

  27. Steve-O says:

    Canucks pick Jensen at 29th

  28. Bostonoiler says:

    Ducks up 30th. I hope Musil slides to number 31 for us, he would be another good prospect on the back end for us. Adding Klefbom and Musil would be big for the blue-line down the road.

  29. Steve-O says:

    Ducks pick Rakell at 30th

  30. Steve-O says:

    What’s this Campbell trade I’m hearing about?

    Edit: Looks like its Brian Campbell for Rostislav Olesz

  31. hemmerlady says:

    Was at The Frog tonight – it was so excellent to be surrounded with Blue and Orange in such an otherwise hostile city. Felt like my old college stomping grounds at the Stonehouse. There was a resounding cheer and applause when they played the clip of the Bruins winning the cup. Also chants of “Let’s Go Oil-ers” just prior to our picks. People actually had conversations with me (unlike when I normally go out to the bar, say hi to people, and get frosted.) Must be Alberta hospitality. :)

    Edit: boy did Setoguchi ever get screwed…the day after he signs a contract extension he gets traded? Hope he didn’t put a down payment on a house.

  32. Steve-O says:

    Looks like Regehr agreed to waive his no trade to Buffalo, and TSN seems to think Kotalik is involved as well.

    And yeah HL, Setoguchi got the screw job…much like Carter and Richards and their NTC’s

  33. DropIt says:

    dont quote me on this, but its going around that Ennis may be the return

  34. LateNightOilFan says:

    Helene Elliot, she’s pretty reliable – beat reporter for LAK:


    ok, it’s done. it’s Smyth to Edmonton for a fifth-round pick and Brule. but the Kings will move Brule along as soon as possible.

    Edit: that was almost an hour ago, 10 minutes ago, this from Gord Miller:


    The latest in the Ryan Smyth saga: deal looked done, Smyth for Brule and a cond’l fourth. Now there is a disagreement about the conditions.

  35. Steve-O says:

    dont quote me on this, but its going around that Ennis may be the return

    That would be a great deal for Calgary, a steal.

  36. chucker says:

    Buffalo taking back Kotalik and another big salary in Regher. There must be some sweetener for Buffalo with picks here.

  37. Trogdor says:

    So no goalies picked yet, anything worthwhile for us in the draft? Couple years to develop while the khabi debacle plays out…

    Benjamin Conz – the Swiss goalie who impressed at the WJC. Think this is his last year of eligibility for the draft too.
