Since then we haven't even been close to a playoff team, and have been consistent sellers.

I want the Oilers to become buyers this year. And Not trade away our Vets. We buy with picks and prospects this year.
I disagree. at this point in the development of the team, it is NOT time to get rid of picks and prospects to maybe make the playoffs. I don't like the makeup of the team and there are a lot of glaring issues, but this is not the year to spend assets for pipe dreams.
I'd rather at this point in the season take the team as is and see what happens.
