Two years in a row now the Oilers are in a position where they don't have any mid round picks and are going to be forced to trade assets in order to pick them up. Maybe the team should stop trading 3rd/4th rounders for crappy hockey players?
Hopefully they re-sign Scrivens or it's just another wasted asset.
Or we could not trade actual NHLer's for fricken mid round picks that have less then a ten percent chance of working out. Who cares if we dont pick in round 2 and 3. I know I don't, I'd rather trade Hemsky for a prospect in the AHL that's ready to make the jump but is stuck in lower leagues because of the team depth. Ditto to N. Schultz, maybe we could send him to Boston for say a guy like Anthony Camara for example.
