Winning the draft lottery would be the funniest thing ever. We'd get killed on the main board here forever.

Is it because we're impatient and trade them too soon or is it that players just can't come into their own here?

Seems we're damned either way
When you have a pile of small, redundant players, there is nowhere on the team to put them into a position to succeed. You inevitibly tank their value and trade them out to watch them recover elsewhere.

We could have kept Cogs, but he wouldn't be any better now in Edmonton than he was when he left. Anaheim has enough depth that he can fit in a lower pressure support role, something which doesn't exist in Edmonton due to all the deadweight.

I'd love it if we finished outside the top5 and then won the lottery due to the new rules. I think the NHL would probably rig it unless it's done live, though.

I feel so bad for whoever has the misfortune of being drafted by this team. New rule should be if the Oilers draft you, you have the option to pass.

We had that locked down when it was 2-1 Anaheim. Gotta keep putting these L's in the bank. Lol at Krueger throwing the smyth line out after every goal against. Not sure why I keep watching tbh

He didn't want to spend the rest of the presser naming 98% of the roster.

He also been adamant that he's not going to coach through the media and call players out in public.

First coach who has adhered to that in Edmonton in a while.

That might be the first time Gene's asked a tough question in his life.

I'll take Ryan Smyth as the coach right about now.

The team would be turning every rush into a wrap around or clapper from the side boards, but it'd probably still be an improvement.

I read the Tweet as someone in the scrum asked it and Gene was just passing along the question and answer. But maybe Gene asked it, I have no idea.

I don't think Ralph believes in calling players out in public. We can only hope he's a lot tougher on them behind closed doors.

You're probably right. Gene only lobs softballs.

Gene used to be a half decent journalist when he was with A-Channel(Now City TV). Wouldn't be surprised if he asked it.
