If we're going to assume that these players turn out well and that they will cost us inordinately then its somewhat fair to assume the same players will be pushing the club to contender, or at the very least, playoff status.
You disagree that you are a smart guy? OK - I won't fight you on that, dumbass.

My point was more about an NHL team in general, not specifically the Oilers. I am expecting/hoping for extended playoff runs sooner rather than later for our team - but this is not just about the Oilers. It's about having a structure and environment in which teams can turn a profit in an 82 game schedule. That's the only guarantee they have (well that and a few pre-season games).
