    Plenty of points. Draft and follow.

  2. PaperDesigner says:

    Another overager? Yuck.

  3. skidplate says:

    20 year old in High School. At least we didn’t pick him in the first round……….

  4. PaperDesigner says:

    Putting up lots of points as an overager in a junior league, especially a 20 year old, really isn’t hard.

    The Oilers must really, really think this draft class is shallow if they’re dipping into the leftovers of the past couple drafts.

  5. Yak2 says:

    1 pick later was Aaron Haydon. I’m so pissed…

  6. Bag of Pucks says:

    Overage. Small. American.

    Trying to like this pick….

  7. rickithebear says:

    Another college Player to role in at 30-40 PT age 23-24.

  8. PunjabiOil says:

    Would Kulda put up better numbers in such an inferior league than this jabroni?

    Yes. Yes he would.

  9. PaperDesigner says:

    If dealing away their second and third round pick didn’t do it already, the Oilers are fast on the track of making this the draft of Leon Draisaitl and nobody else.

  10. PaperDesigner says:

    I’m following the NHL.com feed to track the picks. Did Minnesota just forfeit their pick at 160?

    If so, I forgive the Oilers for the last two picks. At least they got an actual hockey player, as opposed to literally nothing.

  11. Henry says:

    Is Kulda still not picked. He can skate, right?

  12. Lloyd B. says:

    Lets not forget they have an ECHL team to fill out a roster now as well. There may be some sense to what they are doing as they may have a better feel of what these 20 years old players will be than an 18 year old. More like the NFL draft. And maybe, just maybe you get lucky with one and he makes out like an Arcobello.

  13. PaperDesigner says:

    What’s annoying is that after years of taking Oil Kings way, waaaaay too high, they finally have Oil Kings available at value positions at the draft and then promptly select overagers. WHY???

  14. flyfish1168 says:

    The next John Gaudreau

    Beats the old days of Soberlak, Issel and Metcalfe – otherwise known as the 3 kings.

    …So, they are intentionally selecting poor NHL prospects to fill the roster for a league that may churn out one or two actual NHL players a decade?

    That’s beyond stupid. That reaches intentionally stabbing yourself in the junk stupid.

  17. LMHF#1 says:

    Does anyone have an explanation for this? Drafting overage underachievers who you could sign as FAs later when there are young guys with miles to go on the board? Seems idiotic.

    …Especially when they would likely take AHL contracts.

  19. Bag of Pucks says:

    Why do I get the feeling we’re going to get a grim postmortem post on this draft after LT has a chance to sift through the REs for these overagers?

  20. PunjabiOil says:

    Not saying I’m a scout, or remotely close to one – but we can go back and let the math speak for itself.

    The NHL market is very inefficient. No reason a Greg Chase should have lasted until the 7th round last year. Picking him was defensible, even if you’ve never seen him play, and deserved recognition. Selecting the Michigan goalie with a .929 SV % can be rigorously defended.

    The Oilers deserve to be panned for the selections today after the 4th round. Math tells us they left value on the board. We saw it with Hesketh and Abney, and we’re seeing it today.

    Little has changed.

  21. Yak2 says:

    Adam Ollas Mattsson another guy we passed over. Jeez…

  22. RexLibris says:

    At least Calgary didn’t take Kulda with their pick. http://www.nhl.com/ice/draftprospectdetail.htm?dpid=85899

    Bid, shutdown defender out of Sweden.

  23. PaperDesigner says:

    Well… One more pick to try to save the later round picks. Duplicating the Greg Chase pick should be easy, right? Right?

  24. Lois Lowe says:

    How is Kulda still on the board at this point?

  25. RexLibris says:

    Lois Lowe:

    Not certain. Someone is going to get a player there. Patric Hornqvist was the last player selected in his draft year and he was just traded for James Neal! ;)

  26. PaperDesigner says:

    Lois Lowe:
    How is Kulda still on the board at this point?

    I don’t know, but if the Oilers get him, that would redeem a lot of the ills to this point.

  27. Bag of Pucks says:

    Lois Lowe:
    How is Kulda still on the board at this point?

    No team has announced his name at the podium. And actually once they do, he then goes ‘on’ the board.

  28. RexLibris says:

    If they don’t pick him I’m going to pray that he go undrafted and signs a with the Oilers later today.

  29. RexLibris says:

    Excited to see who the Flames take in the 7th. So far they have had a…curious…draft day.

  30. VanOil says:

    Kulda. Memorial Cup MVP, Local Legend and line mate of Moroz. Seems to be worth a #183 pick.

  31. PaperDesigner says:

    Nope. Another goalie.

    Failure of a second day. Absolutely abysmal. Two defensible selections, and then the abyss.

  32. RexLibris says:

    AARRRRGH!

    Okay. He didn’t go to Calgary.

    Now, let him slip through the draft and the Oilers can sign him as an undrafted player.

    Please!

  33. Marc says:

    This seems a lot like the 2012 draft – pretty weak with not a lot of depth.

    The Oilers switched to over agers and players who were playing in US college (and so who don’t need to be signed in 2 years).

    Are there any examples of these so-called ‘value’ CHL players that the Oilers passed on in 2012 that have turned out to be better than the players they picked?

  34. RexLibris says:

    At least Brazil-Chile is entertaining.

  35. RexLibris says:

    Mayo and Kulda to the Coyotes.

    Angry. So angry now.

    Samuelsson, Rieder, and now these two.

  36. kooler says:

    The make a wish foundation also grants wishes for big kids. Oil can turn the salaries into donation receipts.

    It’s OK, we got Moroz *puke*

  38. supernova says:

    This is puzzling to me.

    Where does he play if we don’t want to sign him for a few years.

  39. Rondo says:

    LT

    Why not a right handed D-man” Aaron Irving
