Trade down grab reinhart, get some help for next season.

Murray better turn into Duncan Keith, if not I'll support the kid but he's being put into a caustic environment.

If the Oilers are drafting a player based on how good he might be in 10 years then they are beyond hope.

Thats a ridiculous assertion.

I'm not sure about anyone else, but I'm getting so "worked up" I might shed a tear if/when they finally take Yakupov, lol

Anyone who can read between the lines has known we were going to take Murray since day #1.


We were just called chicken littles.

Heard from other people so decided to ask a few scouts I know for their opinion. 4 of 5 scouts I asked said Klefbom is better than Murray.

Tweet from the team 1260.

Yeah, the more media that says Murray, the more I'm thinking they'll actually pick Yakupov.

Like it or not, they've had the ability to mislead prior to the draft before and this could just be them doing that on a whole other level.

If they do pick Murray #1 that will pretty much keep us in the basement for the next couple of years. You can't rely on 3 kids to do all of the scoring and carry your team to the playoffs. And you sure as hell can't rely on an 18 year old dman to immediately step in and be a first pairing guy. What have you done to improve this team Mr. Tambellini? And no, first overall picks do not count. Lets see what you did to improve the team: Belanger (fail)
Barker (fail)
Eager (fail)
Hordichuk (fail)
Sutton (meh)
Potter (meh)

Am I missing anyone?

Not one of those guys has at least been an effective player for us. That's just unacceptable as far as i'm concerned. And now you ignore all of the fans who shell out money year after year to watch this **** team and pick a dman, whose ceiling is a 2 or 3 dman, first overall? (if all of the rumors are true) That's the last straw for me if that happens. Sure, I'll still follow the team. I just won't go and waste money on games anymore and spend more time doing other things than worrying about a sad sack hockey team who can't get out of the basement because of their incompetent management and owner who hides in his little batcave. Anyways, i'm done my rant and will commence drinking in approx 5 minutes.

I remember being 100% sure that they were going to pick Seguin in 2010 because of the media propaganda.

3 hours from the 1st draft choice being made. Will the Oilers be the ones at the podium? Sounds like at least one offer is getting tempting.

the fanbase was snowed by Tambellini saying it was BPA if they pick Murray....apparently he was just quoted on CHED that will will be taking the Best person in the draft..Iam trying to find it.

i guess that is what he meant by BPA...Best Person Available...

how do these guys find their way home at night?

You forgot Smyth, who did a David Copperfield impression in the second half of the season.

Habs trade us PK Subban and #3 for #1 + roster player - then we draft Reinhart?

I will fist pump harder than any year before that's for sure. It will be bittersweet if this happens.
