Oilers Dive Into Pool But Brian Burke Already Drained The Water

As Eric Duhatschek pointed out in his blog last night, the Oilers may further pay for their short-sighted idea to snag Dustin Penner from the Ducks with that ridiculous offer sheet.

Not many remember that the Oilers had to give up their first three picks in the upcoming draft as compensation to the Ducks for ripping Penner from them as a restricted free agent. Now that the Oilers are (as Pierre McGuire would say) sucking dirty pond water at the bottom of the league standings, the Ducks may now get the number one overall pick thanks to Kevin Lowe.

Projected to be number one overall (in a strong pool) at this years draft in Ottawa? Steve Stamkos of the Sarnia Sting.
