I know... This season has been dreadful. It seems we can't catch any breaks, and we certainly don't seem to be making our own breaks.
We have so many threads dedicated to what is wrong with this team. I thought, as a change of pace, we could have a thread dedicated to recognizing the positives of the season thus far.
I understand that people will want to come in here and lambast me for such heresy, post sarcastic musings, and so on, but I think it will be good for our collective mental health to recognize the few good things we have seen thus far.
- Belov looks to be a good pickup as a 4/5 at no cost.
- RNH sure is good at lifting sticks and avoiding a lot of the runs people take at him. A really slippery player.
Wipe your tears, boys. It's only 11 months till next season
Here's the positive: these players the oilers have accumulated through the draft have value to other teams via trade because they can be successful individually, but not on the same team. We can start moving them for some really good veterans now.
RNH has been quite good.
Eberle has been really good most of the time.
Dubnyk has been kinda turning it around
Gordon has been excellent.
Arcobello has been surprisingly good
Nurse looked really good in training camp
Bachman looked great
Easkins has some pretty good hair
Belanger retired from the NHL
