The Edmonton Oilers finally get the chance to draft a skilled forward that will turn the whole team around when they take Connor "Wayne Gretzky" McDavid with the first overall pick. Start planning multiple Stanley Cup parades, Edmonton, because this future Hall-of-Famer is going to have an immediate impact right away guaranteed.
Described as a "less-Canadian Connor McDavid," Jack Eichel is no consolation prize, this guy is the real deal. Tim Murray and the Buffalo Sabres will not have a difficult decision facing them with the second overall pick.
