They are riding an 11 game point streak. While we waddle of going between sucking and showing a pulse they have passed us in the standings...just think about that for a minute. This was without Rick Nash, and without the 2nd overall pick Ryan Murray. That's how bad the Oilers have sucked.
They have a GM that expects results not losing like Tambellinni has seem to be so content with over the last 4 seasons. In sum I hope this team moves forward from the biggest loser of a GM in the Cap Era.
I couldn't disagree more. Who set their entire roster, including overhauling it with the Nash trade? Howson.
Who has been drafting and developing a nice core of young D, while trading from areas of weakness to address holes (Methot for Foligno, bringing in Bobrovsky)? Howson again.
I give all the credit to Howson for their success, just like I give all of Toronto's to Burke.
Its unfortunate that neither of those guys are around to enjoy what the fruits of their labor finally became, considering they did all the work.
