Once upon a time in the land of Oiler, everything broke right leading up to the trade deadline. A strong team turned into an outstanding one overnight, and the Edmonton Oilers laid waste to the western conference.

This is a big trade deadline for Steve Tambellini and the Edmonton Oilers. The biggest prize available is within their grasp, and in this case "it's an honor just to be nominated" isn't good enough.

Stu MacGregor (to our left of MPS) and the Oilers amateur scouting department have had a splendid three seasons at the draft table. 83% of their draft picks are tracking well.

This is Gilbert Perreault. Buffalo's new owner loved watching him play, and with good reason. Perreault was a wonderful talent, a breathtaking skater with a punishing shot and a sublime ability to deke the opposition out of their jocks.
Edmonton Oilers fans could teach Buffalo's new owner--and their fans--a thing or two about the gift of getting a young owner who is also a fan. It's pretty cool, but it isn't perfect.

The Oilers already have their Jacks and Kings on the wing rolling over the next decade. They lack 6's and 7's and could use a complete defenseman and a workhorse 2-way C of the future. If they are to trade Hemsky and Penner, Steve Tambellini should be looking for a very specific return--young NHL players with a wide range of skills.
