As per tradition around these parts, it's time for another edition of the Mailbag. It's time to find a chair, grab some coffee, learn a few things and waste as much company time as you possible can. As always, this segment depends on you, so if you have a question you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter at @jsbmbaggedmilk. Without further delay - the Mailbag. Enjoy.

This is Curtis Hamilton. He's always been a personal favorite, owing to a scouting report that suggested he could bring a range of skills to the pro game. Injuries have impacted Hamilton's career with the Oilers, and four years in, he's at a crossroads. Hamilton's future with the team is in the hands of Peter Chiarelli and dependent on the organization's evaluation of a number of prospects. It's going to be an interesting summer.
