Edmonton Oilers fans are used to disappointment. Every day since 2006 summer has been a death march into the abyss, with the Entry Draft (once a hopeful time) serving as a reminder that progress is for other cities, other teams. This weekend, as we say goodbye to Ryan Smyth, it might be time to ask a question: WHEN do the good times roll?

Johnny Boychuk is pure Edmonton, even down to the name. A rough and tumble defender with a big time shot, Boychuk is a Stanley Cup champion in Boston and one of the trusted blueliners for the Bruins. Boychuk is 30-years old, in mid-career and on top of the world. He's also an attractive option for the Edmonton Oilers. Could they get him? Would he play here?

In a season spent spiraling downward in an elevator shaft, there are still things to anticipate. Ryan Smyth, score that goal!!!

After a long, disastrous season it's understandable to feel a need to lash out and point fingers. The problem? There are always some fingers pointing back at you.

Roman Horak (in photo, courtesy Rob Ferguson) is one of Edmonton's restricted free agents this summer. Horak and his agent will no doubt be pursuing a new deal for more money, and a one-way (NHL) deal if possible. The Oilers have only so much room on their 50-man list, and are facing some tough decisions.
