So what are you arguing IATL?

We agree the drafting before Stu was horrendous. Oilers management agreed as well and made change to Stu.

His first draft was 2008. Ebs was a good pick. The others we will see. How long before we evaluate? Well I think giving a player till he is 22-24 is about appropriate so Maybe we can start evaluating 2008 now but there is still time even for that draft. We had 5 picks and looks like only 2 will make it. So 40% (20% for sure but Harti looks like he will be a player). So I'm ok with that. Could he have made better picks? Probably... But every team can say that. A successful draft is considered to be 2 players and I think we are on track
