Core players have to play better

Looking at the stats for some key players projected over 80 games:

1st line
G A Pts
York 18 40 58
Smyth 20 32 52
Hemsky 20 35 55

2nd line
Dvorak 15 27 42
Torres 23 15 38

Other key players

Moreau 15 10 25
Isabister 14 14 28
Brewer 3 10 13
Horcoff 13 17 30


If this is are core talent maybe we have over estimated this team. Out of all the player's on the roster I can only think of six player's who have played close to their potential.

Hemsky, Torres, York, Smith, Staios and Conklin

The Oilers consistent moving of core players has left this organization taking a few big steps backwards. At best the Oilers can only finish 500.

In closing the core is not good enough I think the Oilers should start the rebuilding mode.

I agreei posted a trade proposal on Oilfans and got ripped up for it. becaue we were giving up to much.

My proposal was Smyth, smith, Laraque and philly's 1st for Spezza, Rachunek and Neil.

The funny thing is they said we couldn't give up our 1st line left wing when Spezza was on pace for more posints with 5 mins less ice time per game. I think this is the year we take a step back to get better. We move some higher priced veterans for a good return of very close to ready or younger players in the mold of Spezza and get ready for post cba. We should be able to get a top 10 pick with this team and be set for years to come with a line up like this

torres Spezza Hemsky
Rita York Dvorak
Moreau Reasoner Isbister
Chimera Horcoff BG

Brewer Rachunek
Staois Semenov
Lynch Woywitka
