@NotSince67 @Jay31 Haha, such a shitshow. Wonder if they slot Draisaitl into their 3 spot next year- would fit the trend nicely

Is Maroon-Getz-Perry the best cycle line in the league?

@NotSince67 Really puts it into perspective how important the timing is with the ELCs etc. Edmonton wasted the ELCs of all of their #1 picks. Let's hope the trend continues :)

@Coldincowtown good thing is the NHL is still a league where your team needs to be solid through all 4 lines, not just counting on 1 or 2 stars.

@NotSince67 @Jay31 Fixes that make them a playoff team though?

I don't see a single top four defenceman there. 

Best UFAs are gonna be Mike Green, Cody Franson, and I believe Paul Martin. 

Trade might be their best route, they have Pitts 1st and at least three 2nds i believe

@mtommy Yup there are multiple ways to build a team.

@LoovTrain @Jay31 Who would you take there - Hanifin or Marner? 

I would've said Hanifin a couple weeks ago, not sure now.

I just remembered that press conference where Kevin Lowe said something like "I know a thing or two about winning", I think 2 years back. Hockey gods evidently have no problem with arrogance lol

@Xxxxxnew Have heard some people say that Hanifin's team was coached in such a way that he wasn't encouraged to join the offense as much.

@Xxxxxnew Does he mean by McDavid not being on our roster we'll be worse?  And therefore more of a chance to win Mathews?


can't make sense of what else he means.

My consolation is that for the most part the guys running the Oilers are pretty inept. 


McDavid isn't a guarantee of success. I mean, Pittsburgh's won a single Cup with Crosby+Malkin and mixed results since then. That's with the generational talent in Crosby + a top 10 center in the world in Malkin. Edmonton's front office could easily have the same pitfalls in surrounding McDavid with depth. Most of the evidence shows they are poor evaluators of talent. They still have no legitimate top pairing defenceman, with just Nurse in the pipeline as a guy with that potential imo. They still need goaltending too.

@DJBrianBurke @Jay31 @mtommy there's no way they'd rig it for Edmonton. Edmonton is the whole reason they changed the rules for next year. 


Them winning it this year is deeply ironic.

Edmonton will now join Pittsburgh as a franchise that has had multiple generational talents. Lucky bastards

Was going through the HFBoards for some of the other teams and it seemed most of them named us as their least desired destination for McDavid.


Would make the win even more satisfying.
