Oilers All Star

I know it seems like everyone has their favourites, and I thought this could make for an interesting conversation.

If the Oilers were to have an all star game representitive next year(if there is one), who do you think it would be? You can assume Nedved will be back with Edmonton for now. I know who my pick is, but I thought I'd see what everyone else thinks for now.

Im gonna go out on a limb, and say Ales Hemsky, he will come out of the gates like a man possessed once being placed on our top line with fellow countyman Petr Nedved, and newly appointed Captain Ryan Smyth. Hemsky will hit the all star break with 14 goals and 38 assists after 45 games.

Ya, it's kinda a toss up - fans never vote for things like grit/leadership/heart so Smyth is out, lol. But I could see Dvo, Nedved, Brewer, Hemsky and York all having a shot at it because of the way they play - if the numbers are there they'd probably make it.

Mike York is the guy I'd pick. I have a feeling he'll be the #1 centre over Nedved after a month or so.

jadeddog - that can't be true. Everything that comes out of my mouth is anti-Oilers, isn't it?



Honestly, he's the best player on the club - Nedved or no Nedved. You'll see it again next year.

I'd say 2nd best Nedved or no Nedved personally. Brewer is what holds this team together. You may not see it at times, but if he was to go down, it would hurt the team more than any other player. He is my pick to have his breakout season this coming year. And his totals will only go up from there for the next few years. I think he'll finally get some big time recognition next year, and why I think he'll end up making the all star team.

Seems like we've been waiting for Brewer's breakout year for 3 years at least. Every year it's the same and every year he teases by playing well the last part of the year but once again wasting at least the 1st half of the following year.

Brewer has all the physical attributes he needs but seems to lack something mentally. Time may help but he sure is taking his time and few players have had the support and advantages that Brewer has had from coaches and management-including Lowe once again influencing his pick for Canada's team.

There was no influence by Lowe to include Brewer. There were only 2 defense spots available when they started talking about the players that were to be on the team. The 6 defensemen from SLC minus McInnis were written in ink before the selection even began.

Brewer is at the age now that defensman start to hit full stride. He's been great for us so far. I know quite a few people were thinking he'd have his breakout season already, but that was a bit premature. I'm going to get flamed for this I'm sure, but I think he's developing just the same way Pronger did, and I do think he'll be that good. I'm ready for the roasting baby

Funny you bring up Pronger. I recall that he was criticized for the exact same things that Brewer is being criticized for. Fans it seems have little patience with these young players.

Well.... I dunno about Pronger - but to me, he reminds me more of a Blake with the way he rushes the puck - either way... he's a top pairing Dman in the NHL right now - and that's impressive for a 25 year old.

Eric Brewer: Split season between AHL and NHL.. 2 points and a -11 in 26 NHL games

22 years of age

Chris Pronger: 35 points in 79 NHL games with a +15

Eric Brewer: Traded to the Oilers, 21 points and +15 in 77 games.

23 years of age

Chris Pronger: 36 points and a +47 (league-leading +/-) in 81 games.

Eric Brewer: 25 points, -5 in 81 NHL games

Yes, Giz - I mean Miz... we all know Brewer isn't near where Pronger was - but the first couple years are half similar - because if you take into consideration how much scoring has gone down their offensive numbers would be much different in the first couple years - and then once in St. Louis Pronger was on a much stronger team then Edmonton is - not to mention Pronger had MacInnis.... Brewer had..... Niinimaa?
