Well, another trade deadline has come and gone, and the Oilers are once again worse today than they were yesterday. Are we surprised? No, of course not. Since the Oilers are endlessly disappointing you could probably use some cheering up, and so I present another edition of the mailbag. This segment depends on you, so if you have a question you can email it to me at email@example.com or on Twitter at @jsbmbaggedmilk. Without further delay, the Mailbag. Enjoy.

No matter how they spin it, Edmonton Oilers’ GM Craig MacTavish and the rest of his management team came off looking like inept bunglers yet again this morning when they dealt Jeff Petry to the Montreal Canadiens.

From the puck drop on opening night almost everyone watching and covering the Oilers expected Jeff Petry to be traded at the deadline, and the expected return was a second round pick. That occurred today when the Montreal Canadiens acquired the 27 year-old D-man for a second round pick and a conditional fifth rounder.
If the Habs win one playoff round that conditional picks becomes a fourth rounder, if they win two rounds it becomes a third rounder. The Oilers essentially got an extra pick for Petry, which is good, but they also traded away a proven NHL player.

It’s that time of year again! That time when the Oilers sell off actual human beings for wishes and magic beans. How many beans are coming our way? We’ll be staring at Twitter with calculators in hand to find out those answers. Jeanshorts and I will keep this thing updated throughout the day with everything that happens for the Oilers and around the NHL. This is the OilersNation trade deadline live blog!
