The Edmonton Oilers go to market this week with a laundry list of needs: a scoring winger, at least two centermen, a top 4 defender and a goalie capable of filling a strong backup role. That's a long list. Much of it can be solved via free agency, and here are 15 names worth pursuing.

The Edmonton Oilers added to their future offensive arsenal yesterday when drafting Marc-Olivier Roy. His scouting report (and the highlight package) suggest a terrific prospect and a player worth watching over the next couple of years.

Asked to turn around a franchise buried deep in the second division for a generation, Craig MacTavish looks to make bold steps on his first draft day. Oilers Nation--tired of losing and watching the brilliant youth acclimate to it--awaits the turnaround. Based on yesterday's rumors, this is one of the few days in organization history where "expect the unexpected" doesn't quite cover it.

On draft day, nerds like me always have their favorites. Far from the top 30 overall, long past the longest mock (even Pronman's) there are names that some of us will be looking for in tomorrow's 211 names. I don't like Harry, I don't love Louis, but there are some names I'd like to share before the draft.

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!
