I’m on record as saying the Oilers future is bright. I believe we’re at a point where no one–no one–can screw this up. There’s just too much! Hall, Nuge, Yak, Ebs, Schultz, Petry, it’s an ALL-STAR CAST!
And then we get something like this:
This is the last thing we should be hoping for right now. Seriously. A “wow” move involves acquiring someone who addresses need–goal, defense, maybe center–and paying at least one hundred cents on the dollar.
Luongo? Phaneuf? Maybe a three way deal between Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto involving Luongo AND Phaneuf AND some of those valuable young Oilers heading out of town?
Tell me I’m wrong. PLEASE!
