Calgary may be able to speed up the process by getting rid of some good vets, but it still doesn't guarantee success.
That being said, I enjoy watching our team win or lose and feel that we will be a very good hockey team after having years of not making the playoffs.
Smyth was traded for peanuts, Hemsky wasn't traded, Souray wasn't traded. Those were the 3 main reasons the oilers rebuild has taken so long poor asset management had they moved all 3 for young players they would be a playoff team this year if not last.
