Kids are older, FA's......to late for change..
This is what I am scared of....Iam not a furtune teller, just seen other organizations trend like this, ala Islanders, due to bad management.
Yes in this case oilers are developing and progressing, but I want them to be always competing for the cup, not the 2nd round of playoffs.
I've been scared of this as well. Theres a limited "re-entry orbit" to turning a corner and building a solid club. This year everybody was saying was the year this club needed to start showing its at least competitive. People all over this board were saying next year last year. But its seemingly a moving target.
Right now with this club, and with the lineup the org has trotted out there, we're teaching a raft of 8young players below age 23 how to lose.
We're instilling, rather than getting rid of losing culture. With 3 world top picks in the lineup. Disgusting.
