Regarding the draft picks. We don't need any extra picks this year. We need to roll with the prospects we got and bring in NHL talent.

I think an interesting strategy would be to try an acquire picks in 2015-2016. Why. Well if the team is finally competitive starting next year or in a playoff position in 2016 and MacT is sitting on a bunch of extra draft picks we got from Nick Schultz, Ales Hemsky and maybe Jones, Belov and Potter. We can easily spend those picks acquire the missing pieces we need for a playoff run once we become buyers in the marketplace.

With a large Stockpile of picks in the years ahead to spend when we are buyers, the Oilers would be able to acquire any number of interesting players at the deadline without having to sacrifice our long term future.
