Speculation: Could the Oilers make a play for Johansen?

Could Ryan Johansen, who TSN has ranked sixth in their final draft rankings, somehow end up in Edmonton? Both Johansen and Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini reside in Port Moody, B.C., and if the Oilers opt for Hall at number one overall, they’ll need a center to play with him and Johansen could be that guy. Obviously, in order for this to transpire, the Oilers would need to acquire another first-round pick – likely another top 10 pick at that – so don’t hold your breath. However, it’s a possibility.
