You gotta feel sorry for Oiler fans, and it's quite understandable that their fans would lash out angrily at others. They got a pretty good D prospect in Bouchard, but he's a few years away. Do the Oilers dare make another trade for a top 4 defenceman?

Speaking of teams with a poor D, the Canucks managed to land Quinn Hughes. Things aligned pretty good for the Canucks on draft day as after Dahlin was selected by Buffalo, no defencemen were taken until the Canucks turn came up, so they were able to select the guy they were most interested in.

Hughes is a gifted offensive defenseman so the Canucks should have one helluva a power play with Boeser on the left side, and Pettersson on the right, and Hughes quarterbacking.
