IMO, the Oilers need some of those 2nd rounders like Klefbom to contribute.

Most rebuilding teams can't land the premiere UFA's, so its best to avoid that approach. Even the Hawks didn't sign Hossa untilafter they made it to the WCF, and that took a cheater contract to do it.
Actually, Klefbom is a 1st rounder, but your point is well taken.
