It doesn't take a genius hockey mind to throw money at players like Hudler and Wideman and pretend they're the solution.
Hey, I hope you're right. If the Oilers struggle out of the gate I hope that MacTavish doesn't sit on his hands and "evaluate" like Tambellini did.
He blusters about truculence, but have you watched the Leafs? Soft as we are.
And yet they still pushed the Oilers around the ice during the 11/12 season.
They're just a near assurance of it.
I'll reiterate an earlier point: Based on what you would consider trackable progression and league history, it would not be reasonable to suggest Baertschi WILL be an elite player.
I'll start placing value on top 3 talent when the wins start coming.
Based on what I saw during the 2012 WHL final Bärtschi is going to be a star and a pain in the ass for us for many years. He was by
the most impressive player that I saw during those playoffs.
