Oilers/Jackets at 2010 Entry Draft

I don't know if you guys have known this, but the NHL Network went inside Edmonton's offseason and did a whole documentary on it (if you haven't seen it, you can watch it on the Oilers website), of course surrounding the Taylor vs Tyler story. But something popped up that involved the Jackets.

Tambelini apparently was VERY VERY interested in Ryan Johansen. So much so that he tried getting another top 5 pick. He apparently called Columbus, and a deal fell through at the last moment.

They wanted 4, it shows that we were on the clock and they offered us their 2nd rounder (31) a third next year (Which is now this year) and a body (unknown who it was) Moments later Steve hung up the phone and said "They wanted Jordan." Jordan being Jordan Eberle.

It looks like they thought about the offer, but chose not to do it, and moments later we go and pick Johansen.

I just thought it was kind of interesting.

If you want to watch the program "Oil Change" Thats what they called it. Here is the link, its in the early part of Act 2.
