    Connor McDavid is an Oiler. There's always a chance with him.

    Bouchard has more offensive skill than any D man from the draft. Including Dahlin.

    Among the many reasons I'd like to see proper national teams play each other again would be to see McDavid make Matthews look properly second class.

    I'm positive there's a problem with you not making this thread ontime last year..;)

    But somebody has probably stated that.

    jk aside I see improved year from Lucic, Pulju, Bear, Nurse. We have Rieder and Brodz now as capable wingers. Talbot looking good again.

    We'll be around the playoff race.

    I’m positive that Brodz is a center. Positively positive.

    Whether it be this year or any other year, we will win another Stanley Cup at some point and I'm at least 99.99% sure that it'll be before Toronto!

    Talbot is going to have a bounce back year and finish in the top 5 for Vezina votes.

    Koskinen is going to be a capable and serviceable backup.

    Yawney is going to have this team's PK in the top 7.

    And lastly, the Oilers are going to finish with the best record out of the Canadian teams.

    I firmly believe everything I just posted has a damn good chance of happening.

    Heh, I know that, not sure why I wrote it that way. Brodz really adds a solid dimension as 4th line Center and he can move up if needed too. Hopefully Kass gets going.

    Big news that all of Rattie, Pulju, Rieder, Yama, Lucic, all seem to be going in addition to our usual guns. This could be the balanced offense we're looking for. On the back end Nurse and Bear are really supporting offense well. Nurse detecting the Cologne Defender was chasing for his stick and working the puck low to Strome was a good read. Because of that Strome got to finish that one.

    Some of the players can't be as bad as they were last year. Should in theory be more than one bounce back year.
    The special teams can't be as bad as last year.
    Unless McDavid gets hurt the team should for sure be in the playoff hunt all year if not more than that.

    I should just stop posting today. I knew it was Bear, and said Nurse. I think I'm tired. hehe

    It was a heads up play be Bear. He supports offense well.
