Edmonton Oilers - All Time Team?

Tikkanen-Gretzky-Kurri
Hall-McDavid-Draisaitl
Anderson-Messier-Hemsky
Smyth-Weight-Guerin

Coffey - Siltanen
Pronger - Lowe
Klefbom - Larsson

Fuhr
Salo

(All in their prime)

"How can you have him with ..." and "Why do you not pick ..." I look forward to a scary aha experience of having missed the big names that should have been included.

Feel free to make your own all-time team....

How would this team do in todays NHL?

"How can you have him with ..." and "Why do you not pick ..." I look forward to a scary aha experience of having missed the big names that should have been included.

Feel free to make your own all-time team....
1) IT was DAVE Hunter and not Dale
2) Dave player LW not RW
3) Salo over Ranford and Joseph?
4) The D is more or less all wrong

btw

Messier was at Center between Simpson and Anderson


So build the lines around

****Gretz---Kurri
Simpson---Mess---Anderson
DAVE Hunter---Mact----Hughes (still think this is the greatest third line the oilers ever had)
Smyth---Weight--Hemsky

D
Lowe--Fogey
S Smith--Coffey
J Smith--Huddy

Fuhr
Moog
Ranford
Joseph

Based on their play in Edmonton (ie no Oates)
Tikkanen Gretzky Kurri (obvious)
Hall Messier Anderson (again no brainer)
Smyth Weight Guerin (Guerin wasn't here for very long but this line was simply dynamite)
Nilsson/Simpson Linseman Hemsky (unreal raw talent here)

If more of a checking line was needed I would go Moreau MacT Grier

Coffey Pronger (how good would've these guys been?)
Lowe Huddy (solid second pair)
Fogolin J.Smith (defensive machine)
S.Smith

Fuhr
Ranford
Joseph

I realize HEmmer is a whipping boy around here--but for 7-8 years he was a solid oiler

Hemsky at his peak was better than anything we've seen from Eberle

I'd argue Eberle's 30 goal/76 point sophomore season was as impressive as Hemsky in 06. Eberle's already twice the goal scorer that Hemsky ever was.

I would argue a 77 point season playoff appearance and cup final season is more impressive than a 76 point season and deal last in standings. And I am one of the biggest Eberle supporters in here.
