They should have traded the 2012 1st overall pick to trade back for a defensemen. Yakupov's just something they already had in Hall & Eberle.

Just read an article by a ******** Edmonton fan trying to rationalize how Edmonton has had so many top picks and still sucks

The thread on the main boards about Hextalls shot at the Oilers is absolutely hilarious. The amount of ******** is seriously just incredible

And the funny thing to me is that Hextall was simply echoing what many Oilers fans are already saying and also sticking up for faithful Oil fans who have been tortured for years.

If I were an Oilers fan, I'd be pumped there are execs around the league publicly condemning my team.

Their management has shown they don't give a crap about the fans, the only hope is that the scorn of their peers will get their heads right.

Absolutely, but it's not only Oilers fans who're getting ********, that's the funny/confusing part.

****in main boards man...

True. I love the random, outraged Islanders fan. Also love the people saying "Must be bitter about '87". Like, are people really that desperate for a reason to hate the Flyers?

Especially when almost everyone in the hockey community agrees with Hextall's comments, including the people who are feigning outrage over it. You'd think people would appreciate a guy who speaks his mind over repeating the same cliched platitudes that paint NHL people as boring and vanilla...

With the way some people are talking about it in the thread I doubt they even read the reporters question and his quote... it seems like they just read the thread title and thought Hextall went out of his way to **** on the Oilers.

So far I'm liking what he's been saying, hopefully he follows through with the things he's said are his plans for the team... and if he can piss off other teams fans on here once in a while, that's just a bonus

You wonder what Hextall was really thinking in his brain when he came here and saw the situation with the farm team. He was probably like WTF garbage is this.

Also, given Hextall's philosophy he probably would not have gone after Pronger in the first place...

Finally, it's nice to see Holmgren admit what others have been saying about getting a franchise D man....




http://www.csnphilly.com/hockey-phil...-huge-priority
was it last year or the year before we had an argument on this very board about the importance of a good foundation of prospects in the minors. There were some who justified it because of the young age of the core. which the organization finally admitted this week is a load of crap.

EDIT: I don't mean you as in we. I meant there was a long discussion about it with many of us on this board. went on for a little while I think.
as far as getting that franchise defenseman I agree you are better off trying to groom and develop your own guy because they are either not available or the cost is extremely high and potentially crippling your teams depth.
