Oilers' MacTavish willing to deal 2015 draft selection for player farther along

Should the Edmonton Oilers win the draft lottery for the fourth time in six seasons, it could be of another team's benefit.  

General manager Craig MacTavish revealed Tuesday that he's willing to deal a to-be-determined 18-year-old prospect selected in June's draft in order to acquire a player further along in the process, the team announced via Twitter.

Currently slotted second-to-last in the league standings, the Oilers will figure to have a top-five pick along with the Pittsburgh Penguins' first-rounder acquired in the David Perron deal. 

Of course, the Oilers are frustrated, having waited on prospects to develop to little avail for the better part of the last decade. But with the next anticipated generational talent up this time around, the urge to deal could result in yet another farce. 

Or a bounty.
