OK enough on the negative stuff lets look at some hope for the future.
The draft: Finishing last gives us a 48% chance of drafting #1, and if we miss that, a 100% chance of drafting #2, and with this years crop of draft choices I am not sure their will be much of a benefit by drafting first over second. Will it be Seguin or will it be Hall? That we will have to wait until June to know for sure but either one of these guys will be a great help to the Oilers and the future.
Next year we can expect to see Jordan Eberle, the hero of our national junior team, make his way onto the roster along with a guy that few people know about, Linus Omark.
I am not sure if he will be able to transition to the NHL, but as you can see from the following videos, the boy has some hands. FYI Omark has put up more points playing on Moscow Dynamo than Ovechkin did when he was playing for them. ( I know it means little, but it is interesting)
Shoot out goal vs Switzerland.
Another highlight reel goal.

With 2009-2010 out of the way the future looks bright for the Oilers.
I wonder when this guy will be eligible for the draft!
