Picking random teams and random picks out there and proclaiming them to be better than the Oilers' picks does not prove your point, especially considering that you're proclaiming them to be the worst drafting team.



Not likely.
so your saying that smid, strudwick peckham are all better than niskanen. good luck

So it's 2011, why beat the dead horse of bad drafts in the mid to late 90s? How many guys from those drafts are still playing? My guess is, not a hell of alot.

Can we lock this now, Nothing is going to be gain by just pointing and saying "Look, look, see how bad that was, soo bad, look, you see you see.." etc, etc. Even Stanley Cup Champs have bad times at the draft, look at the Lightning Post Richards and Lecavalier, all kinds of ugly.

Strudwick's done, so let's take him out of the picture.

What would he bring that Smid and Peckham don't?

No, there are a few playing in the NHL, and there's NOTHING to accomplish by pretending like this is something new and unheard of, the team was where it was for the 5 years partly because of this poor drafting.

It's No secret, but 14+ years later it doesn't serve any purpose, but the obvious.

Again, Mods, NOTHING NEW, is going to be learned or exchanged here, lock-a-lock it please.

This thread really doesn't serve much purpose since you can do this for every team. Think I'm gonna shut 'er down.
