There is yet another addition to the Oilers refugee club. Rajala joins the likes of Omark, Hartikainen and Niinimaki as a young skilled European player who just got fed up with the Oilers developmental situation and fled to greener pastures in Europe. Rajala was small (5'10) and most likely never had a chance at the Oilers squad but his departure was still saddening as he had tons of skill and could of been great trade bait or even a good 3rd liner some day. What is so wrong with the Oilers development that every European that enters, leaves?
