and please tell me why the Oilers should go dump a bunch of money on a decent d-man with injury problems, right before all of the rookie's 3-year entry level contracts are up. How does this make any sense at all?

If it's not though, I'm not sure Katz will want to take on another big money, injury prone contract after eating Souray's salary.
That'd be an extremely expensive premium. He is high risk to say the least.

I see people still haven't gotten tired of watching the Oilers chase high-priced free agents only to have those free-agents use them in order to drive up their asking price and sign with another team. You think we would have learned our lesson by now.

I say we draft a highy touted defenceman, we have good depth on forward for the future.

Markov? hmm that leg brace thing with Lafontaine was cool but Im not too sure, yeah he's one hell of a defnceman but I dont think we'd be able to get him plus he would be a risk but I like where your coming from, we definitley need a #1 or 2 defenceman sometime, if we had him on a 2-3 year deal, I'd be happy, dudes getting old.
