Paajarvi was a op 10 pick, Pitlick and Moroz were early 2nd rounders (for all intents and purposes late 1st rounders), and Martindale was an early 3rd rounder. Add Hamilton and Lander who were both 2nd round picks.

IMHO, if they fail to develop 2 or better yet 3 of these guys into legitimate top 9 NHL forwards, the Oilers may soon find themselves in a perpetual re-build or at best a bubble team in the Calgary mode.
It's a LITTLE early to call Moroz not amounting much in the NHL, yes? Plus, I'd think Lander should be a good depth 3rd-4th line centre as he's developing now...

And as for "none of the highly drafted forward prospects", RNH, Hall and Eberle say hi

Hartikainen continues to play very well. The Barons defense has to play better, they are giving up way too many quality chances.
I've been hard on Hall's passing, however I have also acknowledged that he is coming off of a major injury/surgery and a lengthy layoff. When he gets back to 100% he is going to be a ****ing beast.

He'll never be consistently great with the puck but despite that, he will be the most valuable Oiler going forward IMO just based on his presence alone and the way he consistently drives the play.

I can't watch the game right now. Would you say Hall is looking more like Moreau, Chad Kilger or maybe a poor man's Mike Grier?

More or less a carbon copy of Chad Kroeger.

Really like the way Lander has been playing lately. Looking more and more like he will end up being an NHLer. His defensive awareness has been great as always but he is looking like he gained a step in the off season and seems to be getting comfortable in the ozone

I knew the Oilers brass was high on him for some reason.

And Teubert passes (well, tries to) in front of the net? Scoring chance. This could be a law.

You guys see that shoulder by Harti? God damn... so nice. SOooooo nice. How often do you see the guy with the puck knock the man behind him onto his ass?

Pray tell, was that offensive creativity by Paajarvi there?

Marincin seems to be getting worse every game. How many times are they going to have meltdowns in the 3rd?

Any other team in the league and he would have been lucky to have played 5-10 games with the way he was looking last year. I'm just happy he is starting to adjust to the NA game and looking like the player lots of people were expecting him to be.

Does anyone on this team besides Schultz, Eberle, Hall, and Hartikainen ever score? EVER?

Another game another loss.

Schultz pads his stats a bit more at least.
