But then we wouldn't have Horvat and who knows where Lack would be playing.

Whey they have continually refused to trade Hemsky for a two-way centre is well beyond me. They probably could have gotten more for Gagner and Eberle in the off season than then could today as well. There upcoming draft picks won’t be nearly as valuable as their 2012 or 2013 picks were.
It really is a complete disaster.

The play away from the puck, defense, back checking, smart decisions, puck containment etc., from the Oil forwards is atrocious. It's a bigger problem than just their defense and goaltending. Their star forwards are awful at defense and own zone coverage.
Their management should not be rewarded with another top pick. Should be a law against it.
