the main thread in this thread, lol, is the idea of edmonton being stuck in a rut of mediocroty..... well *newsflash*, in case you havent been around for the past 10 years or so.... OF COURSE we're a mediocre team (at best).....
the current CBA does not allow us to maintain our own developed talent, nor does it allow us to evenly compete for players on the open market, it even puts us in a position where we haveto place too much pressure on our young up-and-coming players, equating into situations like arnotts and comries..... until the CBA changes, and i mean changes *drastically*, we will continue to be a mediocre team....
the only way to get around this, as this thread and other have pointed out, is to finish last or next to last for a few seasons in a row and draft some very good prospects
*sigh*... its really discouraging being a fan of a team who is constantly fighting an uphill battle
