Perhaps bringing back gold will help turn the page on the rebuild to contender in the west for the Oilers
Good post. totally agree.
The development of a world class, elite player is a lot more than just playing against the absolute best competition you can find every waking moment of your life. So many things shape these players. Crazy how some people feel that missing a few weeks of the AHL grind is a pause in his development.
