In my opinion if this organization can't replace players like Auvitu, Slep, Pakarinen who are borderline NHLers, then they are WAY worse off than anyone of us thought.

I can't remember who players like Auvitu, Slep, and Pakarinen were brought into replace, but I doubt they were any better than the departing group or the incoming group.


Good question, I don't remember either. Was Auvitu brought in to replace Reinhart? Shockingly Pakarinen has been an Oiler for 4 seasons. Why I don't know.

See? The organization can't replace players like Auvitu, Slep, and Pakarinen. They're way worse off that you thought.


This is by no means me saying that Skep, Auvitu or Pakarinen are the answer, or that they should be kept.

The issue for me is that good orgs let players like this walk because they have an equal or better replacement in the wings ready to step in.
If they happen to have a trade work out or an FA target signing that makes it a bigger improvement that is a bonus.
With the Oilers they have a bunch of unproven young guys, AHL players, FA targets or trade ideas. As usual I think they will will be going into the season with a half dozen or so question mark spots in the lineup. The answers to the those questions will be a dozen guys they HOPE will be able to step up and make the team better.



Either way, it's way worse than RDO thought.


Please don't put words in my mouth. I said if they can't replace these guys this coming year, they are worse off than I thought.


And they can't. They have never been able to. That's not putting words in your mouth, that's using your words to form an argument.


So you have the ability to look into the future and see who they brought in to takes these guys places and know for certain?

depending which history book you believe.
