I'll be live blogging from the draft floor in Pittsburgh today.
The Oilers have an opportunity to add some depth to the organization today, and I expect them to add some players with a combination of size and skill.

The first round of this year’s draft saw some surprising selections. At the very top, Nail Yakupov went first overall as the Oilers opted for the consensus best player, but there were reaches and slides sprinkled throughout. Filip Forsberg, ranked 2nd on the consensus list, fell to 11; Teuvo Teravainen was pegged as a top-10 talent and he slid to 18th.
Based on the consensus list, who are the five best players available in Round 2?

Stu MacGregor added a right winger to round out the only potential 1st-overall line combo in the NHL, when he recommended the Oilers take Nail Yakupov with the first pick. After all the buildup, the Oilers made the correct choice and now have four extremely skilled young forwards.
MacGregor talked about the decision to take Yakupov and what he'll be looking to acquire on day two of the 2012 draft.
