The NHL draft lottery looms large as the weekend approaches. For the first time ever the second worst team in the NHL is guaranteed only at least the fifth position in the NHL draft. Even a year ago the Oilers, who finished 29th, would be guaranteed third by virtue of the fact that only one team could leapfrog them.

Edmonton Oilers have some decisions to make on restricted free agents this spring. Based on Peter Chiarelli's own statements about what he wants his team to look like, we can probably make the call on most of them.

As many of you know, the Oilers played the whole 2015-16 season without a captain. If you are finding this out for the first time here, well then I would like to congratulate you on digging yourself out from under the rock you've apparently been living under. This upcoming season, the Oilers COULD continue with four assistants - OR - they could be like all the other teams in the league and have a captain to lead this team to a second place wild card spot in the standings! Here are my picks for the Oilers next captain.
