Players like Schenn are guys you want to be on your team for the playoff run. lol, Oilers fans think their team will win just on pure skill.

Your team is soft as butter. Good luck winning in the playoffs like that.

Just my opinion of course, but I think in 2-3 years people will see the difference between Couts and RNH isn't as great as some seem to think.
Edmonton fans would be the first to jump down someone's throat when inaccurately comparing a player to Gretzky. But believe me when I say the similarities and vision are uncanny.

And even though Schenn might be "average" in terms of height/weight, he's more gritty than any of the Oilers top young guns; and it's not even close.
Yakupov and Hall are in the making of becoming power forwards, so it is close.

Sam Gagner has dropped the gloves more than Brayden but yeah Schenn can hit.

Where do people get this idea that the Oilers are soft?

you don't need to be the most physical team to win a game in the playoffs.

not many new fans of the game or fans of the east get to witness the Oilers play, so be easy on them.

I like how you just seemingly think we don't know what we are talking about since we are on the east coast. Ignorance is bliss.

I didn't watch every Oilers game, but did subscribe to NHL gamecenter. I watched a fair amount of the Oilers. I wouldn't call them soft as butter, but playing a physical game is not how you would describe them. Also I wouldn't put RNH vision on par with Gretzky, or even close to it.

someone please explain and give me examples of how RNH has GRETZKY LIKE VISION.

Nobody can compare to Gretzky, let alone a 19 year old with one year of NHL experience.

My god.

It's because a scout said that he thought his vision is the best since Gretzky's IIRC.

Anyway, both teams need defense and I don't think the Flyers would trade Schenn anyway.

Lol Edmonton fans are extremely touchy it seems tonight? What is going on?

I gave my reasons as why I feel both will be similar players in the future. I never said Couts will be better than RNH, but the gap won't be as great as everyone think. We tend to forget that Couts really didnt touch PP time and a majority of the time he was out on a defensive assignment. RNH had the pleasure of being out more for his offensive game. The games that Couts did have the chance to show off his offensive game, he didn't disappoint.

Also I was making a reference about the huge disappointment to the comparison to Gretzky, not to the overall potential of RNH. Glad you took that comment way out of context.

...yes. I'm saying their style of play is somewhat similar. What I'm not saying is that RNH will pot 200+ points. But he has a good shot at being a top scorer for much of his career because he has many of the attributes that made Gretzky successful.

I'm sorry, Hall and Yakupov are going to be power-forwards? Now I've seen it all.

If Yakupov doesn't interest you, you should probably stop pretending to be a hockey fan.

And what top pairing defensemen does Edm have to offer? Honestly that's what it takes for Holmgren to even answer the phone on this one.

You seem touchy to me. Comparing RNH to the style Gretz plays is not the same as saying he will be the next Gretzky. You guys are wetting yourselves quite messily over a stylistic comparison.

BTW, VinnyC is a Canucks fan, so you can stop with the "Oiler fans think RNH is Gretzky!" stuff.

The "closest thing to Gretzky fans will get to experience" is not just a "stylistic comparison."

Yes but like I said in my edit, he is a Canucks fan and when the Gretzky stuff gets brought up, most Oil fans know it's their styles that are similar, not their point production.

I don't need to see six pages of "Oiler fanz think Nugget is Gretz!!!"

Reading that statement again, it could be taken both ways imo.
