It'd be nice if we don't lose the rest of the games

I like high draft picks as much as the rest, but I think NOW is the time for some Oiler pride and show that we are not going to roll over when we are beaten down.

I forgive a 3-0 loss last night, it was a crazy day, but I'd love to see these guys finish strong and show us some hope for next year.

It's important we don't totally suck, we still wanna grab some players in the summertime via UFA.

Not to mention the fact that I have Rollie as my goalie and EDM as my team in my hockey pool and everytime that combo wins, it's 4 pts for me!!

well it doesn't look good for us playing Minnisota, Calgary, Tampa, Anaheim and San Jose in our next 5 games.

Hopefully we beat LA

My thoughts exactly. At this point we might as well hit the tank and get the highest pick possible. Who knows with a real tank job - they could be in the lottery run and snag the #1 pick.

I believe you can only move up 5 places and it seems a little unlikely for a bottom 5 or 6 finish, although I suppose it is possible if they never win another game.

i think tavares is the year *after* next season.... i think he gets drafted in 2009 no?

edit: yeah just checked, he was born in september 1990, so he'll be a 09 draftee.... but at any point, he would definitly be worth tanking for an entire season.... there is a LOT of talk that he could be the next crosby

Crosby's 16 year old season
59 GP, 54 G, 81 A, 135 P

Tavares' 16 year old season
57 GP, 59 G, 52 A, 111 P

thats not much difference at all really
