Everyone should accept that fact that this team has "no depth" at any position and all we can do is hope Salo steals a lot of points for this team..........and i wouldn't count on that happening either.
I know some of you might see me as a bad person for saying this, but i kind of hope he's right. I've been waiting for some time now for a decent rebuilding period ala the senators and canucks, after which the team will be solid in all areas. A few years down the pipes is ok IF we end up with a better team (through higher picks, cutting the dead weight on the team, etc) in the end. I for one, am sick of the oilers being doomed to mediocrity forever.
