Baggedmilk's 3 Thoughts - Buyouts, Trading for Picks & the Draft Party

June 18 2014 03:21PM


Last week, I smashed my face on my desk until I could put together 3 thoughts to talk about. I don't know how Elliotte Friedman (huge pickup for Sportsnet by the way) manages 30 thoughts every week, the guy must do nothing but ponder life's mysteries. Either Friedman is constantly in a state of wonder or my brain is an empty warehouse that echoes with every pin drop.  (You don't need to answer that). Either way, this week I wonder about buyout windows, trading NHL players for picks, and the Draft Party. Let the arguments begin!

Today, I present the first edition of baggedmilk's 3 thoughts - take that Elliotte Friedman!

At Nation HQ, we think working all day is overrated. As such, we bring you another Monday Mailbag to distract you for a few minutes as we work your way towards the weekend. The mailbag is dependent on you guys, so send your questions to me by email at or on Twitter at @jsbmbaggedmilk.  If you don't have an Oilers related question, ask something about Nation HQ or a hypothetical question that makes little to no sense whatsoever - we'll take em all. 

Without further adieu, the mailbag. Enjoy.

We're getting close to that magical time of the year when the Oilers are actually relevant! Of course, I'm talking about the NHL entry draft and as usual the Oilers are picking in a lottery spot.  Since yearly failure is as predictable as the the rising sun, we've once again organized a Draft Party for Oiler fans to come and celebrate the garbage fire that is our favourite hockey team. It's that time again, Nation. It's time for us to reap the rewards of another year's embarrassment. As we do every June, we're celebrating at the Pint Downtown and we're raising money for charity.
