Miro Satan was drafted by Barry Fraser and the Edmonton Oilers during one of the darkest periods in team history (1993). His incredible development over a small period of time should have represented a major victory for the organization, but they sent away over 300 goals and a long NHL career for very little return.
Satan serves as a cautionary tale: don't give up on prospects too soon--especially those who are delivering results!

I don't do mock drafts, but with this year's edition of the draft full of more plot twists than a Whodunit, I thought it might be fun. Hope you enjoy it!

We are one week away from the 2013 NHL Entry draft, and rumors are swirling around the Edmonton Oilers. One of the major trade assets--#7 overall in next Sunday's draft--may be in play. The question right now is this: how much is that pick worth?

As we approach draft day and what is certainly looking to be a very busy time for the Oilers, it's important to be aware of all (ALL) available items for trade. Edmonton has a lot of assets.
