Who is the biggest headcase on this team?

I am only able to add 15 players so obviously I had to leave out a few of them....and I didn't want to include goalies, since....well, you know, that's kind of a given.

Fire MacT!

Seriously though, I'm not too sure if this team has an overbearing personality at the moment, like a Joni Pitkanen or someone similar. Based on performance, I would suggest O'Sullivan maybe needs some sports psychology sessions though, he has no confidence with the puck lately.

I picked Nilsson because he never seems to be in tune with the coacing staff, the teams needs, the fans wishes, or his own sense of purpose....I don't really think he HAS a sense of purpose actually.

Hard to tell since, you know, I'm not in the locker room or anything.

I say Penner just based on his dealings with the press.

it was between hemsky and nilsson. chose nilsson just because he ignores the coaching staff like hemsky, but at least hemsky produces somehwat offensively. nilsson just is useless on the offensive and the defensive. hemsky is at least only useless in one area..

I said Moreau. I think he's a vet who doesn't want to relate to the younger guys. I think he's been working on it though from some of the team mate comments about him helping them in practice. Good for him.

So a recovering "headcase"....

I voted Comrie but then realized that I read the question wrong. I thought it said "Who gets the best head in the case of the Oilers". I thought Comrie would be a no brainer.

Horcoff. The guy has potential to be consistent, but lacks the confidence he once had in his "all-star" year. Get his head on straight, get at least one line up and running again.

Horc is the man. The Oil should have giving him another 5 million over those 6 seasons and at least 8 mil for this season.

I think we need a standard definition of "headcase" here.

I picked Cogliano because man, is that guy streaky.
