Good stuff Roger.^ Thanks, it makes me feel a bit better that others see the same thing.

Onto a different topic, before I forget. I was just looking at first round picks since 2007 and the Oil have managed 631 points out of their first round picks, which sounds impressive until one realizes that Patrick Kane alone since that time has racked up 400 points on his own. Sweet Jesus. Further examination shows that they've only had one other first rounder to contribute, and that's Dylan Olsen with an assist, so a combined 401 points, from 1st round draft picks. Ha. I can imagine Kane high five to Olsen " hey buddy, thanks that nearly put us over the top" .

The Flames on the other hand have a whopping 56 points from the first round, most of it from Backlund. Lordy, as bad as I think my team has it, it'll never be Flames bad. 9 points per year average from first rounders, awesome.

Can't wait to see the spin that the hockey writters association have for fucking over the Oilers calder nomination since the Gretzky snub. Every year they invent a new angle to fuck over our rookie, last year, our guy didn't play enough games, this year it will be some other shit that doesn't fly. Ha, it'll probably be Brodin for having 11 fucking points with Suter, like yeah that really defines " most proficient"'. stupid fucks.

The Oilers had a team this year? I thought they took the year off or something.

I don't live in the past, but should I choose to the option is there. With the Canucks there are no such choices.

Yeah, just learned that Yakupov was indeed fucked over, not even nominated for the Calder, just goes to show the eastern bias writters are finished voting in March. Oh well, the Calder winner usually winds up as a useless schlub for the rest of his career anyways so no harm.

Absolutely correct. Brodin bing passed over was a huge miss. A complete joke just like the officials blowing the Sharks throughout your series. Sorry man you guys deserved better.

So MacTavish thinks Hemsky and Horcoff should go.

Welcome to 2010, Craig.

I would disagree with that. Hemsky is quite awesome. Horcoff is overpaid by about a million dollars but he is key leadership needed down the middle for a young team like this.

It's pretty unfair to these two players. Easily the only two guys who have been good through this "dark time", and are so clearly loyal to the team.

this is typical of oiler fans. Complete fucking homers 24/7 Yakupov did not deserve to be names, Schultz should have, but not Yakupov. He did not wake up till the last 5 games of the year. Take those 5 games away and there is no discussion about his calder snub

Hemsky is great but the Oilers have a lot of skill forwards and I think they need to acquire a two-way winger who can mentor Pajaarvi. Hemsky is also hopelessly unreliable. I think he should go. There is value in having older skill forwards to complement your young studs when trying to build a contender (see: Hossa, Sharp, Ryder, Recchi, Guerin, Justin Williams, etc.) but I just don't see Hemsky as that guy.

Horcoff I'm less sure about. He's a pretty good checking centre, and they are unlikely to get any value in moving him except cap space, on account of his contract. But he is also the captain and it's possible that the organization thinks it's necessary to make a leadership change - either Smyth or one of the young ones.

I'm getting lectured by the guy who; in over 40 thousand retarded hf posts under different aliases - can barely string two sentences together without drooling. How do you explain the PHWA fucking over Hall by voting for Ovechkin as a RW AND LW. You're just as fucktarded as any hockey writer , 'cept grammatically you're worse.
How many points did Huberdeau have in his last 5 games you fucking moron.
