Draft Day 2!

By , June 25, 2011 5:30 am

Keith was picked 54th overall...can we find a gem in the later rounds?

Here is a post for discussion regarding the second draft day.

On day one, the Oilers drafted Ryan Nugent-Hopkins @ #1 and Oskar Klefbom @ #19. And picked up Ryan Smyth from L.A. for Brule and a 4th (still not confirmed as of writing this, but TSN has it so I’ll consider it a done deal).

Oilers are looking to pick at 31, 62, 73 (from Flames – Staios trade), 91, 113 (from Pens – Garon trade), 121 and 181 (I think these are accurate, all from here).

Who will they pick? Saad, Rattie and Musil are all still available.

Update at 10:22am: At 31st the Oilers took Musil (D), at 62nd they took Perhonen (G) and with the 74th pick they selected Ewanyk (LW)…and supposedly the Smyth deal is on hold due to Brule’s health

Update at 10:35am: Oilers pick Dillon Simpson at 92nd (I guess all those numbers from above are off by one). Looks like this is Craig Simpson’s kid.

Update at 11:49am: Oilers picked Tobias Reider (F) at 114, and Martin Gernat (D) at 122

Update at 12:02pm: Oilers pick Frans Tuohimaa with their final pick at 182

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.

Bob Mac’s NHL Draft Rankings out…

2011 NHL Entry Draft Rankings according to Bob McKenzie

2011 NHL Entry Draft Rankings according to Bob McKenzie

Each year, Bob McKenzie polls a bunch of scouts and does a butt load of work to rank players in the order that he feels they’ll be drafted (based on what the scouts told him… not so much his own opinion). This year’s draft rankings are up for the first two rounds, and includes some “honorable mentions”. It’s worth checking out. I won’t spoil the surprise, you can check the draft rankings out here.

I still am thinking we are going to select Ryan Nugent-Hopkins first overall. Too much promise in this kid to pass him up.
