Gone are the Dany Heatley and Hossa days and Heelloeee UFAs and other players knocking at the door. The Oilers future can't look any brighter than now hopefully the arena issue will be resolved soon enough. The Oilers will be once again a very, very competitive team and exciting to watch.
Ya, I recal as soon as they signed him a friend said just that. It is like getting the 1st and 2nd over all. My friend was not a oilers fan either. He is just that good of a prospect. I honestly do feel bad for the Ducks, they developed the guy and we got him NHL ready. However, I will gladly take him.
