I like David Perron a hell of a lot better than I like the chances of the Oilers picking anything useful with their second round pick.
2nd round picks have been a bust (very odd) but going back to 79 the team did quite well with 3rd and 4th rounds picks.

I would argue that Stoll (closely followed by Matt Greene) was probably the best 2nd round pick the team has selected so far.
I expect Petry to ultimately be the best 2nd round pick assuming he stays with the team.

I would argue though....just because the Oilers have sucked picking in the 2nd round doesn't mean that pick has little to no value.

That said... sending a 2nd and Paajarvi to the Blues for Perron is a good deal for the Oilers.
