But how many of these teams are in Edmontons position with their geography working against them? Not many.

I also should have prefaced my post with value contracts to a 'non contending' team. Although some of the contracts (41 year old Alfredsson...et al) could be argued that they were not exactly value signing contracts.

Point taken though...the city of Edmonton is a tough sell and the team being as bad as it is (thanks Tambo) makes the Oilers a very tough sell.
