I don't know how that team can be so bad with all those top picks.
Probably because they didnt spend a single one of those top picks on a defenseman.

Maybe they will tank this year and get seth jones.

Their goaltending has been shaky as well.

That's a really good question. Where would he have fit? Better than the black aces.

Kovy and Larmer both played RW on that top line at different parts of the year.

I would've loved some actual input from him. I never got to see those teams play. Curse of being but a baby.

I've also had the next generation of Rod Gilbert aka Stu Bickel answer some silly question I asked him too on this Blueshirts United video piece.

As you can see, I'm practically in the running to be the next GM.

The Oilers power play is awful fun to watch. Such patience and then playmaking ability.

Geez 53 shots on net with 7 minutes to go. Oilers can get 60 at this rate.

Poor Varlamov. Has to put up with the Avs train wreck defense minus EJ.

That last period was like fine art by the Oilers. Total domination.

Jump ahead 3 years and I would not be at all surprised if the Oilers had achieved less success than people forecasted.
Lots of talent, and it is amazing to watch some of them, at times, but as a team? Not so good. I think Oilers management really is not up to the task.

Barry Melrose is ready to put Fasth in the HOF (in case someone didn't get that, it's an exaggeration)

glad to see JT getting some love here, was ridiculous to see a few years ago so many ppl ******** on him on this board and saying how much better picks duchene, hedman, and kane were, out of pure blind rivalry. only a couple of us were saying he was the best of the bunch only to be laughed at.

i love the way he plays, he really has great hockey iq and scoring touch. and his skating has greatly improved, probably the weakest part of his game.

Loved Tavares since day 1 even when he was drafted by Isles. My favorite non-Ranger.

That guy is the Islanders version Dancing Larry...Sort the Coliseums go to guy. Wears a gold wig, does a dance when they score. As a younger lad I tried to steal his wig off his head once. I didn't get it.

That guy lives in his trunk and smells like cat food. Leave him alone. He's like Dancing Larry.

I can assure you that he is in no way like Dancing Larry. Larry is not an idiot who taunts the other team with a sign directed towards a different team. Larry dances, is not an idiot, and does not smell like cat food
