NHL Draft: Round 1 Discussion Thread and Live Pick-by-Pick Results

Come chat with us as teenagers are compared to Hall of Fame players.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Okay, let's get  this party started. Mr. Chiarelli if you could kindly make your way up to the podium and announce that the Oilers select Auston Matthews with the ... wait, what? The Oilers don't have the first overall pick this year, are you sure about that? Fourth overall? WHAT??? That can't possibly be right, I mean, is that even legal? Aren't there bylaws or something that cover this? I hope someone filed an appeal with the NHL over this. Trampling on the rights of Oilers fans to see our GM make the first pick is not acceptable. This aggression will not stand, man.

Stay with us throughout the night as the Copper & Blue team digs into the situation. Or starts drinking heavily depending how the evening goes.
