I take notice and start to get worried.
Are those the same "experts" that said that Ottawa would be battling for 1st pick. Or the same "experts" saying the Oil should trade down or pick for need. "Experts" are opinions and all opinions should be taken with a grain of salt. After watching the Devils band of no name Dmen being on the cusp of the finals I'm convinced if Tambellini signs 2 real NHL Dmen and the further maturation of our youth the Oil are much closer than what the "experts" would have you believe.
