A team at the crossroads

The way I see it, the oilers are approaching a very important decision. They are not good enough to win a cup this year and next year may not happen. It has been widely reported that the new cba will have cost certainty in exchange for more liberal ufa (ie - lowere age)

Lowe must make a choice pretty quick. Does he trade comrie for immediate help or does he trade comrie, smith, Staios(if he won't sign an extension), and salo for kids/prospects?

I think the oilers are real close to becomming a dominant team like ott if we had another 1-2 high end defense prospects and another goalie to peak in 1-2 years. JDD is 3-5 years away from being a dominant goalie in the best case scenario. We have plenty of great forward prospects.

Numerous teams are going to be reaching this decision point in a couple of months so you may see a lot of veterans on the block this year.
