Draft Experts A Little Off

\ The real surprise is the guy who went No. 6 overall, Kane’s junior teammate Sam Gagner. Dave’s son leads the Oilers with seven points despite missing a game. Edmonton has one more game before it has to make the decision, but Oilers coach Crag MacTavish has already implied that Gagner isn’t going anywhere. I’m sure cynical Caps fans are already salivating over Gagner’s success (he was taken one pick after Washington selected Karl Alzner, after all) but it has a lot to do with opportunity. The Oilers (and the Blackhawks to a lesser extent) are going with a severe youth movement \0x2013 otherwise Gagner would be back playing for Dale Hunter in London right now.\
