Yeah, talk is cheap. Its one thing to lord over guys that need your name on the resume to advance. A complete other to be coaching several guys that could buy and sell you in an instant and can act like it if they choose. Good thing the club got rid of Horc when they did.

It's true. The team has to buy in to what he is selling.

I remember feeling the exact same way about Krueger last year. Everything he said seemed to be the right thing, but as you said, actions speak louder than words. I have high hopes for Eakins, but i expect absolutely nothing right now.

Even the prospects of Van-Edm despise eachother. Should make for a fun future.

I have no hate for oilers prospects, Like seeing the talent. Sucks horvat, shinky, and subban were sitting tonight, would love to see how they would do.

The goalie for the oilers has also played solid, but roy easily the best player.

Not seeing anything from nurse atm

Yep. People loved Anthony (krueger) Robbins at the start. Words just don't do it for professionals in most instances.

Everyone seems to be coasting on our side, especially nurse. You'd think they'd all be trying to prove something here.

Haven't seen Chase since he got jumped.

I wish Nurse would impose himself physically more. Haven't seen him dish out nearly enough punishment.

We bought into the hype on Nurse. There is a reason a lot of teams had him late first round.

The kid is a project of a player. There were better dmen available.

Yeah, Nurse is exactly the type early first round pick I don't make. Guy that has success on basis of being bigger and imposing will on peer players. Which says nothing about how he will later do playing against men.

Sometimes you're basically just drafting an early growth spurt rather than an imposing force. Who knows but it often does pan out too well.

You're exaggerating that Pronman tweet that said two scouts had Nurse late 1st a bit much.
