The Oilers have picked up Jordan Eberle, a gap-toothed pip-squeek that scored 42 goals last year in the WHL. By drafting yet another Centre, the Oilers are now ever more clogged up in that position (making Ryan O'Marra, what, they're 15th option?), although surely some of these guys can be converted to wing, or just as likely, traded (Stoll, Schremp, Pouliot?). Still, Oilers fans have to be happy that the Oil didn't go all Niinimaki with their only decent pick in the draft. It doesn't hurt that the Oilers are his favourite team, either.
