95 percent, huh? Yikes, our scouting staff really sucks.
I've never been a Macgregor apologist, so maybe our scouting staff does suck, but take a look at the percentages of players taken outside the first round that actually play in the NHL, it's a very low number, before throwing the scouting staff under the bus.

as well, our high end forward prospects are in the NHL already, and have some decent 3rd, 4th line prospects that aren't in this tourney that are playing in the AHL. and 1 lackluster period of Nurse who is probably nervous, and 1 lackluster period of klefbom, who hasn't played a game in almost a year, does not concern me.

and holy ****, it's September 5th, theres still almost a month before the season of actual NHL players start. you are making this game today WAY more significant in the grand scheme of this than it actually is.

Khaira is one of our better prospects, my money is on him to make the NHL in a couple years.

A bit of a ugly goal, but nice power move in front by Khaira.

Looks like Khaira tipped it, I have barely noticed him so far.

Great play by everyone there. Chase heads up pass to two men, Fyten appropriately lets it pass to Gernat, Gernat gets it on net and Kharia gets... pants? on it and in.

Hurrah Chase!

Fair enough. Like I alluded to, I'm just concerned about the prospect pool should the Oilers have another down year. It's not looking particularly strong at this juncture.

It's the bent knee skating style, and the puck on a string stick handling. I see it too.

Kerr is insufferable. Yes Monahan, Poirier, and Klimchuk will do exactly as well as Hall, RNH, and Yakupov.
