"No question about it:" Edmonton Oilers top pick definitely in play for right NHL d-man, says TSN's McKenzie

This in from Bob McKenzie, his report that if the Edmonton Oilers can find the right NHL d-man to trade for with the 10th overall pick, that pick could be moved: “No question about it. There problem they are running into is that as much as they’d be prepared for the right player to give up the 10th overall pick in the draft, they don’t see that player out there right now. Yeah, they’d like a right shot offensive defenceman. Everyone wants one of those. And Edmonton desperately needs one

Prior to this week, everything said about this draft was in regards to a clear top pick in Rasmus Dahlin, two clear second and third picks in Andrei Svechn

No Vegas Vacation: 10 snubs left out of the NHL Awards

Claude Giroux finished second in league scoring, was one of only two players with a point on at least 40 percent of his team's goals and was rock-solid at both ends of the ice.
