as well, our high end forward prospects are in the NHL already, and have some decent 3rd, 4th line prospects that aren't in this tourney that are playing in the AHL. and 1 lackluster period of Nurse who is probably nervous, and 1 lackluster period of klefbom, who hasn't played a game in almost a year, does not concern me.

and holy ****, it's September 5th, theres still almost a month before the season of actual NHL players start. you are making this game today WAY more significant in the grand scheme of this than it actually is.
Fair enough. Like I alluded to, I'm just concerned about the prospect pool should the Oilers have another down year. It's not looking particularly strong at this juncture.
