Also, the oilers currently have the second longest playoff drought in the whole league, behind only toronto. It is also possible they change the format. But hey, in a lottery involving the whole league, anything could happen
If they use the same formula as before, the Oilers would be one of the teams with the WORST odds of getting a high pick.

This topic is pointless as we have no idea what where the Oilers will be drafting.
