Dahlin is supposed to be projected as an elite #1D, one of the best D available in the draft in a long time.

Just the kind of guy needed for the last 3 years of McDavid's contract.


This is fine.

Hmmm, shoots left. Should probably trade Klef soon for a 2nd round pick to make room for him.

The responsible thing to do would be to wait at least 1/4 of a season to make sure Dahlin is trending well. Then trade Klef for Dan Girardi or someone like that.

What do you want to bet that the first defenceman moved out of here from the current group is either Klefbom or Benning (who'd be about the last two I would move)?

Ya, I was only half joking about the Oilers trading Klefbom. Some of the verbal starting to come out of the MSM is troubling. This from Spector:

Quote:

Oscar Klefbom: He may not be a bonafide No. 1 NHL defenceman, but the 24-year-old is the No. 1 man in Edmonton, and half of what was an effective pair alongside Adam Larsson last season. Well, thus far in 2017-18, Klefbom has been awful. Night after night awful.

It's Edmonton. Our sports media and the "best fans in the league" here hate every puck-moving defenceman eventually.

You know what I loved the most about the draft last year? The fact I really didn't know or care who was in it. I didn't miss following all these prospects. Really not relishing having nothing more to look for after Christmas than a freaking draft pick.

Even with piss poor management and mediocre coaching, this team should still be playoff bound. It would be a complete disgrace if they miss.

Noted but they're still crap. Imo, if those two teams are in playoffs spots it just means there are two spots for the Oilers to take.

So there is no way the hockey gods or the league will allow another #1 overall pick to come our way - which is fine.

How about Brady Tkachuk? He seems as greasy as the rest of the family, but was impressive at the Jrs. Have a little brother-on-brother rivalry brings some fire to the BoA?

Need a management draft. This bunch of clowns have been gifted 4 #1 picks and we still hilariously languish in the mud meanwhile several teams have rebuilt themselves into competitive teams through Smart acquisitions. Hell, even the expansion team made of “castoffs” has outperformed the Coilers. It’s all about the head of the snake. This gorgon we have shares one ineffective brain that has no direction. It’s really really sad and pathetic.

Let's not forget the high picks in the other rounds too. even if it is a bit of a crapshoot, Oilers have had one of the first cracks at 2nd, 3rd, 4th rounders as well for several years and the best one i can think of is Pitlick...


You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.

I wouldn't be surprised if Brady pulled an Eric Lindros on the Oilers is they drafted him. I wouldn't be surprised if any player chose to go that route.

Who would honestly want to play for this team?

Kids that like money? Our team has lots of opening for young skilled players. ELC bonuses are pretty enticing. Can always play hardball later.

With the Anti-Edmonton bias by NHL refereeing, they are indirectly giving us another opportunity to win a lottery. Unintended consequences will bite their ass.

Trying to earn stripes by saying nothing and winning 1st overall picks. The way of the Oilers.

I want to get excited about the possibility of adding a high end prospect, perhaps even a generational talent on D, but I just can't. We added the best prospect since Crosby to the 3 other 1st overall picks we had and we're still in the same stupid situation. I truly believe that until the cancers at the top of organization are removed, this will be our reality - our own groundhog day.

The Oilers are the Ballard Leafs or Dollar Bill Wirtz Hawks. There is simply no reason to believe they'll turn into a competent NHL franchise while Daryl Katz is the owner. Plan for your next 30 years of Oilers hockey accordingly.



This is fine.

Thats good. Where I want the Oilers every year. Feels like I'm the only one here who values draft picks.

- is it good? If the season finished today the Oilers are 5th last. They are 8th on the chart. Unless I am reading that wrong they are worse off than if they had done no pick trading.
- I think more of us would value picks more if we have any faith at all in the Oilers drafting a player outside the top ten and having them develop and contribute for the team down the road. As of now I have almost zero belief that will happen.

The Maroon trade "should" have bumped us up a few spots, but it was not meant to be while Chia had to take a massive 3 hour dump and came back to his desk with 5 mins left and took the best remaining offer.

I made that story up to try to be generous to Chia just to note. The real story involves a lot more ineptitude.

NYI has 2 lottery picks (from the Harmonic deal that gets worse for CGY every day)
NYR and DET have two firsts because they sold significant players at the deadline.
MTL has 4 seconds

What I'm happy about is the Oilers are only short a 5th this year (Montoya) from still having all their picks for the next 3 years. I giggle every time I look at the Flames CapFriendly page because they've screwed themselves so bad 5 years from now.

*4th


You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.

Crazy - only 2 games left and we could be anywhere from 5th to 10th.

Personally, 0 interest in winning either of these last 2 games. If we lose both, at worst we're 7th (not counting lottery wins). One of those would be against the Canucks, who are also playing Arizona, who they could definitely beat, so they could pass us (more ROW wins). And Detroit has Montreal and the Isles - 2 very winnable games for them. Just need them to get 3/4 points.

Ha! you too! Pretty sad we're looking at other teams remaining games hoping they'll get some wins.. but you look for positives wherever you can after a season like this ! :)
