    Slava Voynov for the Oilers 1st in 2014?

    I'd consider it.

    From the THN article on Vey, Toffoli and Pearson:

    It’s one thing to hit rock bottom and acquire a high end talent with a draft pick, but if you can’t develop any players after that into NHLers, you end up like the Edmonton Oilers.

    I wouldn't. Slava is still a kid and for all that the Eastern Conference Media likes to pump up Karlsson's Ego, he's not the 2nd coming of Lidstrom. He's more like Paul Coffey.
    ChilledAgua and roenick like this.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Me neither. Doughty and Slava should anchor the top two pairings for the next decade

    Watching those highlights, I noticed a lot of Bruins "fans" there. There is no way any of those Bruins fans are from Boston... or even transplants. Gotta be Oiler fans riding the bandwagon after sucking for so long. Either that or they're Flames fans who decided to buy an Iginla jersey.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    I watched the game. Bryz was Edmonton's best player, by far. He was clearly frustrated by the play in front of him. This has been the rap on Bryzgalov since his days in Anaheim. He's not exactly the most forgiving teammate in the NHL.

    The Oilers have some of the best top end skill in the West but they've got a collective hockey IQ that is worst in the league. Also their defensive effort is the bottom rung in the West. They just routinely make stupid decisions with and without the puck. Then they fail to commit to the backcheck once they make the errors. Lars Eller was 100% correct when he called them a Junior team. That's what they play like every night.

    So while everyone is harping on the teams lack of size, I think they'd be better served adding smarter players with a bigger commitment to playing hard without the puck. Trevor Lewis is a guy that they absolutely should target in the offseason. He'd be a perfect compliment to Taylor Hall or David Perron.
