LOS ANGELES -- It's going to be a busy and historic day for OilersNation and fans of the Edmonton Oilers, and my guess is the action is going to start long before NHL commissioner Gary Bettman steps to the podium to get things going at 4 p.m. Pacific Time (5 p.m. in Oil Country).

LOS ANGELES - As on the ice, the teams that make up the Northwest Division represents both extremes at the draft table. Clubs who do not pick until the 3rd round will attempt to help their teams as much as those with double-digit picks, while emerging and elite teams will attempt to shore up already envious pipelines of talent as others continue to flounder in draft mediocrity. Any given draft can shape a team's future, but just as important as how the Edmonton Oilers do, it's who the other teams in the Northwest select that will shape the vision of future rivalries.

A buddy of ours emailed us at 7:53 AM this morning with a threatening message: "Damn it Wanye, get off your fence and tell us who you think the Oilers should pick in the draft. And don't bother me with any statistical information and logical reasoning as to why. Give us all the real deal." (underlining his work)
