The Edmonton Oilers have selected No. 1 overall three times in the last four drafts and again in the top 10 this past draft. The last thing they want apparently is to do it again.

On Thursday Oilers GM Craig MacTavish met with the media and discussed the state of the team and where it stands right now with the Oilers continuing to struggle. He's frustrated -- "pissed," in fact -- and is doing what he can to fill the missing holes.

He has clearly identified one hole and he's open to trading the Oilers' top draft pick to help him get the upgrades he needs.

That should intriguie some general managers across the league considering as it stands now the Oilers are clearly on their way to a top-five draft pick (with the shot at No. 1 in the lottery), potentially higher. MacTavish just sent up the Bat signal to GMs across the league with that, it's an intriguing proposition even if this year's draft doesn't have the same cachet that the past crop did.
