Even with our top 2 centers down we still have better center depth with Hall/Gordon and two scrubs. If the oilers finish anywhere near the flames in a full season I would lose all faith in the rebuild.

The flames are a horrible team with no position of strength. The only reason they weren't last in the previous year was because the trading of the 2 (near) franchise players gave a boost of adrenaline to the young guys. Once they have to face the NHL grind with a horrible team they will crumble hard.

I fully support the rebuild they embraced tho, it's the right thing to do. But things only get worse from here on in. Prospects in junior they had high hopes for will go on to bust in the ahl and young players they hoped would be franchise talents will fall short and dissapoint.

Getting a ekblad level talent will be huge
