Many believe the team who got the best player won the draft , I believe different. The team who won the draft is the team who filled the most important need. Let’s take the Edmonton Oilers for example .
Sure they have a highly skilled left handed centerman in Connor McDavid but as an old saying states “offense wins games , defence wins championships” , this saying means sure they have a good centerman but what gives if ur defence collapses quickly. By taking Evan Bouchard (who recorded 87pts in 67 OHL games for the London Knights) was the most significant draft pick for the Oilers.
He’s a good draft choice because he can really add depth to the Oilers defence pairing.That’s what in my opinion qualifies as a draft winner.
