While we all wait for MacT to make bolder and BOLDER and BOLDER deals we thought this might be as good a time as any to have a lil contest with our new sponsor Jerad Cox from Sterling Real Estate. It's a man cave contest and the prize is an Hall/Eberle/Nuge lithograph sent straight to said man cave.
That's mad decent.

In 2013, the Oilers did something they have only done once before: drafted multiple Russians playing in Russia with top-100 selections.

With the Entry Draft in the rear-view mirror, the best UFAs already picked over and the Edmonton Oilers wrapping up their development camp, GM Craig MacTavish could pack for Kelowna and spend several weeks doing nothing more taxing than kicking back or slapping around a golf ball.

It is obvious the Oilers need a winger with size, grit and a willingness to go to the tough areas to play in their top-six. They don't have one on the roster, and no one in the system is NHL-ready. If I was Craig MacTavish, I would sign RFA Kyle Clifford to an offer sheet.

Shawn Horcoff is the most prolific 99th draft pick in NHL history. Don't scoff at that. The other 12 players picked 99th have combined for 457 points in 2082 games (418 games came from goalies, Marco Baron, Ray Emery and James Reimer). Horcoff tallied 447 points since the Oilers drafted him in the 4th round in 1998, and he's played 796 games. He's actually one of the best draft picks in Oiler history. Only ten Oiler draft picks have scored more points than Horcoff: Messier, Coffey, Kurri, Anderson, Arnott, Smyth, Satan, Tikkanen, Rucinsky and Hemsky and only Satan (111th) was drafted later than Horcoff.
