Good point. That organization is a gong show. Even with all of those top picks, they've managed to stumble and bumble their way to (yet another) top 5 pick this year. There just doesn't seem to be a plan or a blueprint, it's like "let's just draft the best available forward coming out of juniors." They seem bereft of leadership, size, defensive talent....and an identity.

This should be a clue to their loyal-to-a-fault owner that hiring and promoting past Oiler greats isn't such a good idea.
