I disagree with this. I honestly don't know who's a better hockey player or who projects to be better. However I will trust whoever the Oilers staff go with.

Saw him what?

Single-handedly lose the game to the Russians?

Torpedo our goalie while the puck bounced into the net off his ass?

1 game does not make him a bad dman. Thats like saying Carey price has a bad season so hes one of the worst goalies in the league.

I hate to be Dumba's partner when he has a bad night - you'll hear the obvious "Dumba & ------".

It would be hilarious to have Ryan N-h, Ryan S, Ryan J, Ryan W and Ryan M all on the ice at the same time.

Easy for fans to pick a jersey... they'll save a few bucks because they don't have to get a number on it, and they can put Ryan on the back and cheer for whoever is playing well. Just rock a big blond mullet when you want to cheer for smyth, curly black for Jone-z, or a big cast on your foot when you want to cheer for Whitney, etc.

I don;t think he's saying that makes him bad. I think he's shooting down the "well Murray made the WJC team over Dumba so he is better" argument.

Not sure. Not my job. But I know that if we take Murray at 3 we'll hear years of complaining about him. He's an NHL talent but I don't think he'll live up to his draft position.

I'm not sure we need a nickname thread for a player that isn't our own (yet). But I do love the enthusiasim!

This discussion is derailing into more of a Murray vs. Dumba debate as is, so if nobody has any significant qualms, I think I'll be merging it with the Draft Thread.

He seems like a very nice guy and a good leader, I would love to have him on this team. As far as a nickname maybe just "MUR"

its because some of us are on the fence and are basing our decision off of the cooler nickname.

Shouldn't we draft the kid before we attach a monicker?

Yup. He won't live up to being a top 5 pick. Book it.

There is no Larsson in this years draft. Makes it hard.

I never really thought about it in those terms, but imo the route the Oil need to take is to draft Grigorenko and then trade him or Gagner for a d-man. I don't think there's a really good chance of getting a d-man who will be an impact player within 5 years from the nhl draft, this year or any other, and how long do we want to wait for a Cup? How long can we afford to keep all of our top 4 fwds?

If you wanted to draft a d-man and a center and have them develop together you'd have to take the d-man first imo. Eg, a d-man from Gagner's draft year and a center now would be good timing.

Problem is the center is so much more valuable, it's hard to not grab one when the opportunity is there. If you don't get a #1 c your re-build is a guaranteed failure.

Aye. I suppose I'll try and not throw rocks at the wasps nest.
