The 2013 NHL entry draft will be an interesting one for the Edmonton Oilers, who, after finding themselves drafting the first overall choice the previous three seasons, now hold the seventh pick in the upcoming draft.
With Seth Jones, Nathan MacKinnon, Jonathan Drouin and Alexander Barkov almost guaranteed to go in the first four picks, the Oilers will have some difficult decisions to make when their turn to draft comes up on the board.
The Oilers could keep the pick, they could try to trade up by including a roster player, or they could trade down in the draft in hopes of adding a player and a later pick, all of which present different possibilities to the team.
One thing is a guarantee: that the Oilers need to improve in 2014, and new GM Craig MacTavish will likely start helping the team get on track at the draft in June.
Here are the best- and worst-case scenarios for the Edmonton Oilers' draft in 2013.
