I can see Granlund on the top line.

That's a 31st place team.
I dont know. 32nd maybe.

I think you could find more NHL-ready talent on the construction crew working on Seattle's arena.

I cant wait. Considering Oiler fans were mashing the Panic-Button last season like crazed diphtheria patients this upcoming season is going to be a treat. Because they're going to be begging for the 'Good ol' Days' of last season's epic tragedy.

That summer, the Oil also decided not to sign their 4th round pick in 2012, defenceman Erik Gustafsson. He ended up signing an ELC with Chicago, and last year scored 17 goals and 60 points for the Blackhawks.

Something in the water indeed...

My prediction for next season:

Oilers miss the playoffs
Hopkins moved at the deadline they try to get as many picks for the 2020 draft
McDavid traded next summer
Holland begins rebuild 5.0 centered around the German Gretzky (Unless he requests a trade out)

Staples is so golden, read another one how the oilers could make a deal from their position of strength onf Dmen, and acquire a good forward, speculated Russell or Benning could be sent somewhere, and also lists off a long list of Norris caliber talent they have to replace those two, then speculated about who could come back.

Still think Treliving indirectly had a huge role in that. They missed out on Hamilton, freaked out, and decided to swing for the fences on Reinhart. Isles should really big sending Treliving a thank you card for helping them get Barzal ha ha.

They can have as many 1st overalls as they like - it hasn't made any difference so far. Maybe another one will force the NHL to take measures to prevent such bad teams from existing in the future.

An anniversary thread should be made that day (and locked that day) to reminisce about some of the best posts in the 7 megathreads. McLottery's face when the ping pong balls of doom popped up, the Reinhart trade, Koskinen deal, MacTavish's pressers, etc etc.

Yes indeed. A celebration of all the great memes from over the years, the delusional Oilers fans postings, the hilarious videos.

This idea has merit.

...I may suddenly find myself very busy for the next three weeks.

Plus, it kind of kills time and provides a bit of amusement during the deadest part of the off season.

We'll have to check if they'll be able to get away from planning next years parade route for a bit.

I think we should start planning the 15th Anniversary tribute logo we were talking about earlier.

"fiesta de quince años" or "fiesta de quinceañera"

As I am discovering, this are two items among many in the hilarious Oilers history that actually predates the E=NG era. While Bertuzzied started the original thread in 2004 it lay dormant for almost ten years before one of the most consequential thread-bumps in CP history in the Fall of 2013.
