If the Oilers Miss the Playoffs…

From Scott Morrison at CBC,

And missing the playoffs this year will hurt worse than any other season.

That is because, of course, the Oilers are not in possession of their first-round draft pick this spring. In fact, they surrendered their first three picks in the summer to the Anaheim Ducks as compensation when they signed restricted free-agent Dustin Penner, which was ultimately a reaction to Nylander changing his mind and signing with the Washington Capitals, missing out on other free agents as a result, and then watching the Buffalo Sabres match an offer sheet given to winger Thomas Vanek.

It is called dominoes, Oilers style.
