That 1st is a useful piece and gives the Oilers some ammunition. The bonus with a 1st is it has no contract or cap space attached to it so it's a "clean" asset with no strings attached... very liquid.
Or we use it to land a guy like Brouwer or Hartnell and add a much needed big body to our top 6. Lots of possibilities.
