The thing that separates this team from VAN and OTT is we don't have a Bertuzzi, Hossa. A player that is a gamebreaker. That used to be Doug Weight on this team. You could count on him almost every night that he would have a solid performance.
Therefore, I would rather have Comrie sit out and try to get Ovechkin. Ovechkin has franchise player written all over him. I think if we get this kid, we are going to be closer to the cup than we ever had in the past decade or so.
That is a pretty big risk here... there is no guarantee that the Oilers get Ovechkin even if they finish dead last...
Nevermind the fact the fans would go ape-crap all over the place. This is not a last place hockey club, and we all know it.
