Great pick for EDM, big fan of this kid. Not sure he's the two-way player they needed behind RNH, but he's a gunna be a great player possibly better than Reinhart.

What's the chances Calgary goes off the board and Bennett or Dal Cole drops to us?

if he turns out to be a real solid scorer for the Canucks, what difference does it make?

And if he doesn't, or just becomes a mediocre 3rd liner?

I could see JB going for Nylander now. He's got some size and skill down the middle, some bigger wingers (Kassian, Jensen), perhaps he doesn't mind some pure skill in Nylander now

Maybe, we can hope. The other option is he continues to get bigger, and follows up drafting Virtanen with trading for Myers and signing Thornton in free agency.

What a disappointing day. I thought management wanted more season ticket purchases, not less. If we take Virtanen at 6th then I'm all but giving up on Benning.

If we take that lumbering oaf........this draft will be an even bigger disaster

So how far does Bennett drop?

He's gone to Calgary.

Funny how leon's family is dressed like it's a funeral. Ironic because he died and went to Edmonton

BHAHAHHAHA

As expected.

Oilers top 6 is filled with small skilled players like Bennett. RNH, Gagner very similar.

They needed a big center.

Soooo Bennet goes to CGY, NYI gets Dal Colle

Canucks pick...........

I'm hoping Calgary takes either Ritchie or Virtanen, or NYI takes Ehlers or Nylander.

Regular 3rd liner is still better than under-sized KHL'er.

Acing my draft predictions so far. Draisaitl is a really good pick-up for the Oil.
