Apparently by the time they get good, their first round picks are going to be UFAs. Good luck getting any of them to sign long-term....

I don't think you can build a team full of rookies and other young players. Most rookies benefit the most from playing with older guys and veterans in my opinion. It's just really sad that a team picks first overall three years in a row.

By the time they do all mature they'll either lock them all up long term and have a team full of scrubs on the other lines, or they'll lose them to free agency.

Without a doubt. Look at Florida and the way Florida has gone from being a tank team to a playoff-caliber team. They did it, basically, in a single offseason. There's no reason Edmonton could not do the same. They should be dealing some of that youth for a veteran presence, instead of building for a future that just keeps looking like it's farther away.

They could also become Pittsburgh, situations are a little different but definitely similar

LOL Saw Yann Danis on the scoresheet. He came in for relief of Dubnyk in Edmonton, and didn't give up any goals!

What happened to the crumbling bulin wall? Did Ronald Reagan tell Tambellini to tear it down once and for all?

HUGE differene between Hall + RNH and Crosby + Malkin.

Oilers draft picks were all solid choices. Penguins draft picks were future elite, can't miss choices.

Pittsburgh was always built with a solid core of veterans, and Crosby and Malkin are several degrees of talent above anyone on Edmonton (or anywhere else).

Apparently yes. I don`t know man, the shoulder area looks as bad as on the Sharks uniform, but otherwise...

There are some moments where you just have to sit back and be thankful for what Marty has been able to do for this team over the past 20 years....

I like the Oilers home jersey more than the Islanders home jersey, although the Islanders have a better logo. A shame they got rid of the stripes.

LOL Nice assist Backstrom!

I caught the end of that game, but had no idea that happened. Still the Marty critics will remember the few gaffes he made last year like the one against the Panthers, Flyers, and Rangers. He had one in every series aside from the SCF. Though those gaffes were insignificant for how much that puck handling came into play. Without Marty we don't get that far in the playoffs just for his puck playing alone.

We've all seen what Moose does with the puck!

He was beastly tonight, but it still wasn`t enough.

Who would of thought that Philly and Detroit will start the season with 0-3 record?

They need to convince some top Veteran UFA's to sign there to mix in with their young guys

Haha it was Parise! I love how the Wild have scored 2 goals in their last 2 games, and both have been from Parise. Not gonna win many games scoring only one goal.

Justice for Devils fans

That's what you get for signing with a team that has an atrocious offense. Yea, you'll comprise a larger percentage of their offense but you sure as hell won't be as successful.

Enjoy leading the Wild in goals by a large margin for the next decade!

They were doing well, and in 1st place a lot during the first half of last season mostly cause of Backstrom. Winning by 1 goal much of the time. I see it coming around again.

I love how they still tell us that none of our defencemen would make their team except as the seventh defenceman. Looks very amusing when we're leading the league in GA and they appear to be tanking again.

Nothing, until they fix that defence and get some veterans who can actually lead the team. They have a bunch of flashy kids on offence, and basically nothing else. Dubnyk isn't leading them to a Cup, neither is anyone on their defence.

I've been railing against this for almost 8 years now. It's part of the game now, unfortunately.

Parise did not score last night. He got an assist.

Could have sworn the box score last night had him scoring a goal.. maybe there was a deflection and they changed the scoring afterwards?
