I wasn't expecting this kind of thread from Perfect Drug. Way too early and way too negative IMO. Maybe wait for February or so to even consider this type of thread. I hate it when people give up on the team.....before the season even begins
That's the HFBoard recipe for success! If only we could add more rookies, we'd win the Cup!
And do we even want Nail? I think we have enough up front. If we get the first overall, I say trade down for Dumba or Murray, and pick up a Teubert-level prospect in exchange.
Then its off to the races!
If we get the 1st overall pick again, I won't have any faith that this franchise can ever dig it's way out of the basement. That said, IF we get the 1st overall pick, I agree, we need to push for D. If we trade it down to #3 and take whichever D is left, I imagine we could actually ask for a 2nd Pairing Dman as part of the deal. Yakupov will be on a different level than all the prospects.
That being said... It might not be a bad idea to take Yakupov, and offer Paajarvi ++ for a #1 Dman. Yakupov IMO will be dominant in the NHL from day 1
i expect the oilers to win 1 maybe 2 games all year, they are just the worst team i have ever seen, there is no hope really they shoul just forfeit all of their games.. . . . . . wait what? they havent even played a regular season game yet? oh um IT DOESNT MATTER BURN REXALL DOWN
This is the only time of year when you can be excused for having blind optimism and you choose to be pessimistic? Come on, the season hasn't even started yet! Come December this thread might be justified, but right now it just pisses people off
