An Offer I Couldn’t Refuse
I recently had a chance to talk a little about the Nations with a friend who is also a regular reader. I don’t usually get face time with readers so I took the opportunity to ask him if there were any topics he’d like to see covered that otherwise get overlooked.
His request was right up my alley.
He wanted to know who might be some worthy players to watch for the Oilers drafting in the later rounds, hence the title of this article. I love this kind of stuff.

Am I crazy for thinking this? Could Magnus Paajarvi be tried out as a potential center?

How many forwards does the average NHL team need in a season? Which prospects in the system have the best chance of being called up? Do the Oilers have enough quality guys in their minor-league system, or is it something they need to strengthen?

Last week the NHL made another in a line of "last offers" to the NHLPA. From what has been leaked to various media outlets, this has been the most complete offer I have seen. In the past, the offers have focused mainly on the "make whole" provision or the various ways to curtail player contracting rights. This is natural because they are the biggest issues between the two sides.

As an Oilers fan, I would love to see this damn lockout end today, with news that the NHLers in OKC will fly to YEG after the AHL game against Houston tonight. The positive arrows in OKC are real and spectacular, and the "possible callup" list is increasing.
