Never too early: 2013 NHL draft thoughts



Apart from Chris Pronger (BOO!) clone (aka Seth Jones) this draft looks like a opportune time to load up on the bigger, quality centres. This is not to diminish the value of the "D's" like Pullock, Morrissey and Co or a goalie, like Tristan Jarry (though Fucale seems to be "the goalie" of the draft). Whenever the Oilers pick there is a good chance to bring in interesting prospects. Jones or MacKinnon aside what about if the Oil picks in the first two rounds:

-Barkov (C) and Niklas Hanson (D) or Bigras (D)?

-Lazar (C) and de la Rose (C)?

-Lindholm or Monahan and Horvat or Kujawinski?

Ristolainen (D) and Burakowsky (C)?

Pulock (D) and Bailey (C)?

It is a deeper draft than the last one. I just hope that MBS will make better choices than he did last year.

My personal favorite as of December 2012: Aleksander Barkov (C) and Jacob de la Rose (C)
