#8 – Zach Parise to the Edmonton Oilers (selected by Antony Ta)

Let’s just forget the Oilers ever traded that 17th overall pick.

Cap Hit: $3,125,000

Parise does it all: he scores goals, gives assists, finishes hits and plays with intensity.

CLS Re-draft

Cycle Like The Sedins is doing a Fantasy Draft of the NHL and all the teams’ GMs are represented by a blogger(s) from each city. Yours truly is representing the Edmonton Oilers and I’m planning on drafting either a #1 goalie or #1 defenseman next. If not, a 1st line centerman.

The winner is determined on a full season and playoffs simulation of the new EA Sports game NHL 10 coming out in September.
