My bad. Of course you are right.

I would rather have Graves than either of those guys, but yeah, since I had a brain cramp and forgot that he was a Wings pick, Stoll and Greene would be the only two guys of any impact the Oilers have ever drafted in the second round.
I expect Petry to ultimately be the best 2nd round pick assuming he stays with the team.
He's got a chance to be the best ever second round pick for sure.
And due respect to Petry, that's pretty bad for a franchise that has thirty plus years of draft history.
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.
No, you are right it has value as a trading chip, I didn't mean to suggest otherwise.
Setoguchi just went for a second rounder. I'd make that deal all day long.
That said... sending a 2nd and Paajarvi to the Blues for Perron is a good deal for the Oilers.
Yes it is. I'm excited to see how Perron fits in.
