Expansion Draft: Edmonton Oilers
Being a young team has its advantages for this draft – that’s where the Oilers lucked out. With the majority of their core players being under 22 years old the Oilers were able to leave little value unprotected. This pick could be stretched between 4 different players; David Desharnais, Benoit Pouliot, Griffen Reinhart, or Laurent Brossoit. Ultimately only one can be chosen and that likely source who would be flipped at the trade deadline would have to be experienced forward Benoit Pouliot.
Mic’s Pick: Benoit Pouliot
