I am starting to think about the Oilers as a comparable franchise to the early 1990s Nordiques.

We are simply lacking too many pieces and talent along doesn't get you very far in this league. I would personally try to identify two guys to keep from our "big 4" if you can call them that, and deal the other two (in my world you keep RNH and Hall).
Drafting and pro scouting have been NOWHERE near the caliber of the Hawks, Kings and other elite franchises. The worst fears are being realized and
the Oilers are just like the Thrashers
, Panthers and other recent laughingstock franchises.
It's just a crap situation with no end in sight.
I was thinking about this the other day. There is a bit of a similarity to the present day Oilers and the Thrashers of 5-10 years ago.
