We did it! I can’t believe the Oilers won the lottery! McDavid is coming to Edmonton!… probably.

More to come.

    Now someone needs to tell the kid that if you want to win in this league, you need to COMPETE. McDavid, I’m pulling for you. I know it’s a tall order but hope you can be the “ignite” that turns the culture of this team around.

    Ask if your agent Bobbi Orr wants to be a POHO or something for an NHL club. We will be glad to take him as well as a package deal.

    Well at the pathetic end of season presser Craig did say “who knows what can ignite it!” when talking about the team making a jump forward in the standings. I’m sure that most teams have a specific and detailed plan for getting better but I guess something like this was what Craig was talking about. He is a very lucky general manager today.

    Oilers could walk away with McDavid and Provorov.


    K_mart @ 9:15 this morning.

    You’re more than half way there Special K! Trade up on that Pens pick and Provorov could find himself here as well.

    Others mocked you but I was pulling for ya. Well played sir.

    • Joy S. Lee

      Let’s not look at this one from a gossip girl perspective. Proper context may be within the Buffalo fans’ massive purchases of McDavid jerseys and the like. Remember, McD played there one night and they welcomed him with open arms and wallets? They were into him, and knew they had the inside track. It isn’t terribly fair to be used as a knock against Eichel in any way.

    About time the country that pays the bills in the NHL gets a generational player exlad in Florida with no fans on NHL welfare players refusing to play in Canada should be rule if you pay the bills you get the better players

    “That’s a great hockey town. They love their hockey. Obviously they’ve been on a bit of a slide the last couple of years. That’s allowed them to get some unbelievably amazing players that play there now. They’re just kind of a young team now, I guess. I’m not quite sure what’s going on (moving forward). That would be an awesome place as well.”

    McDavid on the Oilers before the draft lottery.

  • Rob...

    Before the season started there was a photo contest where one of the entries showed the Oilers Management plan involved just one thing… drafting McJesus. I think it showed one of the Oilers brass holding an Oilers McDavid jersey.

    Dude, whatever your name is, you’re a time travelling wizardgod amongst men. Major props to you, Sir.

    • Well, Lander is already signed, I doubt he clears waivers a second time. So he will play. Also, Gordon can’t live forever. Eventually the team will need a cheaper option for that fourth line centre. I could see Lander taking that over maybe.

      As for Roy, I think at least the fan consensus is that the Brass resigns him at least for one more year. I doubt he takes that deal and likely finds something else. But it would be great if for once, even a player like McDavid started down the depth chart, and wasn’t immediately counted on to Carry the whole damn team. Also, if you were the opposition, which of these lines do you defend (in no particular order):
      Pouliot, Nuge, Ebs

      Purcell, Roy, Yak

      Hall, McDavid, Lander

      If Nelson just rolled those lines, it would be pretty tough for teams to keep pace.

  • Rob...

    Okay….so as a Flames fan, I actually got a little bit sick when this happened. I mean the thought of this Management group getting ANOTHER free pass, it makes me sick. BUT the fans, the fans who have kept buying tickets during this “Dumpster fire made out of tires burning on a plane while said plane crashes” you guys deserve this… Now can my Flames PLEASE make a deep playoff run so I don’t have to kill myself when reflecting on this season? Thank you.

      Same can be said on Hall, RNH, and Yakupov, but here we are. They are bunch of teenagers when drafted. As talented as they are, should we expect them to know everything about how to run an NHL club?

  • Joy S. Lee

    I don’t think we need to make problems where they don’t even exist (there are enough real problems with this team still). I’m sure Hall (one of the best LW) will be okay playing with a guy who could end up being the best C of this generation. Who wouldn’t?

  • Jaxon

    What no one is talking about and I am super excited about is
    McDavid and Nurse (Future team mates) going head to head in the finals
    For the OHL. I hope it’s being telecast across the country. Plus to watch the Drai
    Turn it on,,, just a preview of the future Oilers is exciting !,,
