The more I think about it, the more I think that the Oilers should have built this team from the defence out, St. Louis style.
Don't get me wrong, it's kind of hard to strongly question picks like Hall, RNH, Yakupov since they were all either the best player available or very close, but maybe the Oilers should have used a pick to land an elite defencemen. You can talk about best player available all you want, but even if they were this has not made Edmonton a good team, the results speak for themselves.
We've been stuck with people like Pitkanen, Gilbert, Brewer and Whitney as our best defencemen, while so many teams have way more to work with
Honestly all of our defencemen are bottom 4 d-men on many teams in the league. We need elite talent back there way more than at forward. Bold moves are called for
