One strategy for the Oilers would be to just pick up every goon or semi-goon that shows up on waivers and beat face this year while letting their youth develop... and as a plus they'll pick up a flash new prospect in the lottery while they are at it. Win-Win-Win
Shanahan is throwing out suspensions right and left and the Oilers will likely see some of their players (Peckham, Sutton, Eager, Hordichuk etc) hit by that flak as well eventually.
They also have a head start on their annual injury parade... Teubert-Eager-Hemsky-Whitney etc etc. so I'm expecting a revolving door from OKC to the Oilers all year long.
I'm betting we see 35-40 different players play for the Oilers by the end of this season.
