WWYDW: Where Should Darnell Nurse Play?

Darnell Nurse is something of a wildcard. The 21-year-old defenceman had an irregular rookie campaign in which the Edmonton Oilers asked him to do too much, too quickly after a pretty decent start to his NHL career. In this week’s edition of What Would You Do Wednesday, we ask how the Oilers’ coaching staff should…
