if we get new, real, Manager and coach with Lowe fired too...we win the cup next year

if we keep the same rookie GM, Coach, and the great Lowe :
-Yak, in the KHL
-Hall, long gone after year 2, begged for trade after 1 year, shined Lowe's rings for a few months and told him how great he was, trade granted.
-RNH, Operation on the second shoulder
-Eberle, same as today, enjoys making money and having fun
-Nurse, top ten D-man in the NHL !!! Lowe claims it's cause of him.
-Arco, 1st line veteran center, Mac-T claims he always wanted a son like him.

RNH=closer to Sam Reinhart's level than Tyler Seguin's level and that's not a good thing,that's a bad thing.
No it wouldn't have, there was absolutely nothing here to surround those top picks with and there still isn't very much. That's why it's going to take another 5 years.

Dude, RNH is only 21. And with three seasons under his belt. Give the kid a chance before you make ludicrous claims

If the Oilers start the rebuild right at 2007 the rebuild would've been done now.

Kane
Stamkos
Tavares

vs

Hall
RNH
Yakupov


All of the picks taken from 2007-2009 are going to be better than any of the picks from 2010-2012.

Watch the Oilers for 25+ years and one's self can see it that RNH is not going be the player that many of the fans on here think he's going the be.


The Oilers will go as far in the future as what Taylor Hall will be able to take them.

Lot's wrong with this argument, first off, the rebuild didn't start in 2007. It started 3 seasons later and the biggest reason for that was because there was still enough talent signed on this team to prevent it from hitting rock bottom until that year. Not enough talent to win anything but still enough to keep us outside of the bottom third at best. We could have gotten lucky and lost the final game in 2007, won the lottery like Chicago did and drafted Kane instead of Gagner but wouldn't he have just made the team better? We still weren't bad enough to finish near the bottom of the standings in 2008 even with all the injuries we suffered towards the end if that season. This team wasn't bad enough to finish at the bottom three years in a row back then. Horcoff was playing better, Hemsky was much healthier. Had we started the rebuild in 2007, I don't see how we even come close to ending up with three consecutive #1 picks. I doubt this team is much different now even if they had they started in 2007 because we probably wouldn't have had the same calibre of draft picks. We'd have been relying on a suspect management group to make tough decisions on players that weren't the consensus # 1's. Keep in mind how the scouting department and drafting was working out for us back then.

We needed the perfect storm of bad to end up with 3 consecutive first overall picks. That's why you rarely see that happen. You can't Cherry pick which years you would have liked them to happen in. It just doesn't work that way. Any one different player into the organization could have changed lots of things.

I'm not suggesting that those three guys aren't going to be better than the ones we ended up getting, although it's still too early for that to be definitive. It sure helped Kane and Stamkos to be going to teams that already had much more stability in the lineup than what the Oilers provided Hall, Nuge and Yak. They've also got three more years of experience and that helps even more. We got the best players we could in the years we picked high, we just have to wait for it to all come together. At least we have a base of talent here to work from now. Young players coming into the organization will have solid players in front of them to help their development. We aren't at rock bottom anymore like we were in 2010. That's why five years from NOW is a legitimate goal for being a serious contender, not five years from 2010.

Hall is on par with Kane and Tavares.

We would have ruined Stamkos.

He would be playing injured, and be asked to be on the PK, and given the toughest assignments to kill his confidence as a 19 year old.

Despite his awesome shot, he would be placed on the point during the PP, or be used as a screen because he's a big body.


As an Oiler, under Klowe's/Pat Quinn/Tom Renney/MacT supervision, Stamkos would have been moulded as a 'Penner' type player.

Who knows how any of those guys would have turned out here the way this team was set up. All of us have been concerned about the lack of quality veterans guiding the players we did pick. What would our guys look like on other teams?
