Decent move though....I like the fact that they are doing whatever rich teams can in cap world!
Over spend on AHLers to help groom the up and comers.
No harm in that at all if the $$$ is there!
We still could use some dmen though...at all levels!
Plus a little insurance that we can sneak a goalie into the AHL too.
totaly agree.....finaly the oilers get it. i was so pissed when we had no farm team, then when we did we didnt realy take it seriously. this is awsome and the right way to do things....the epic plan the parade coments are from fans who dont look at the big picture. everything the team does doesnt have to be hugh. but a good orginanization needs all of the necessary building blocks to to be sucessfull and that definatly includes a good farm team to develop its prospects.
great job guys!!!! keep adding those pieces....D-man Gaolie PK master, and one more hight end guy.
Moran and Giroux have two really good things going for them, they are proven AHL scorers, and they are at an age where the NHL dream is still alive (even if it's only faint). You look at what happened to the Oilers last season and holes can open up (see Potulny and the endless train of d-men that were recalled).
