Rita Smyth Hemsky sharp-shooter in demand
Isbister/Chimera Reasoner Dvorak shared ice time
Capt'n Moreau Stoll York MacT still gets a very good d-line
Torres Sarno Laraque could be the missing link

Staios Semenov
Brewer/Luoma Smith Reduce Brewers playing time
Bergeron Cross

Conklin -

pressbox Horcoff
The framework is in place...

I like the idea of bringing in some youngsters, but I think the reason we find ourselves in this dreadful cycle is because we continue to get younger, without getting older. ALL successful teams have veterans than know what it takes to win. Name one player on the Oilers squad that knows what it takes to win The Stanley Cup, do we even have any rings in our locker room when the coaches arent in there??? ALL of our teams veterans have grown in our organization and have become accustom to early playoff exits, that builds character, but none of them have been able to put the team on their shoulders and carry them to the promised land. el la Mark Messier in 94.
