In Memoriam: Those We Lost In The Rebuild

in-memoriamin-memoriam

Since 2010 the Edmonton Oilers have seen a never ending parade of players walk through those cool doors with the giant Oilers logo on it, only to be discarded sometime later for a newer, still not very good player to take their place. Today we honour those who served the Oilers but have since moved on.

Fare thee well ye fallen comrades; your sacrifices shall never be forgotten.

    There’s some scrubs on that list for sure – guys who shouldn’t have been playing, or other teams’ depth guys.

    At the same time, there’s some guys who really should have made a career for themselves. Not everyone, but I sure liked Gagner, Paajarvi, Stortini, Jones, Peckham, Hartikainen… not all these guys should have been busts.

    I hope PC shows more patience, and picks better coaches and staff, than the last guys in charge.

    ^unfortunately, fans don’t want to place the blame for players not reaching these lofty expectations on where it belongs….on the players! Gagner more than proved with a 49 point rookie season that he was ready for the NHL and so did Yak, finishing behind Huberdeau for rookie of the year.

    unfortunately for some i blame the lack of development for these 2 on the players who haven’t been able to take their games beyond what they did in their rookie years. i don’t believe for a second that either player would have been more productive had they gone back to junior. what you see is what you get and all there is with both of them.

      Couldn’t disagree more. Neither player was ready for the NHL and were rushed by an organization without a clue. I’m not saying they’d be superstars today, but they would have been more physically ready for the day-to-day NHL grind.
