I don't understand this. Before injuries destroyed the Oilers, they were one of the better teams in the league and definitely a playoff team. They are not by any stretch of the imagination a "brutal" team, particularly if Khabi comes back next year. That said, I think they could use help, and I think Pääjärvi is the guy to do it. I, as well as most Oilers fans, believe he will be quite good next year. He has blinding speed and brings pictures of Forsberg up in my mind. He needs work on his finishing, but he'll be great. And as I write this, Anderssön scores!
The Oilers have some good prospects, their future is solid (outside of in net), but their current roster is weak.
Well, so ends the best tourney for the Germans in recent time. Overall good showing and I'm not as dissapointed as yesterday, maybe because the Swedes were in front from the beginning, maybe because thery are normally my favorite team, whatever.
Congrats to the Swedes and heads up to the German team, what a great time you gave to us.
