The Oilers are run like a union. It doesn't matter how hard you work or how good you are the old crappy guys get all the good shifts without adding much to the bottom line. They are also way overpaid and think the company is in debt for their existence. I am not targeting anyone in particluar
Believe me, I had the same thing in mind when I wrote that (and I like unions, but I know there are negatives). If Hemsky goes, Smyth is next in line. After that, Gilbert. Then maybe Smid. The last time they moved a younger player ahead in the pecking order for a letter was Gretzky.
