I need some info…

I love hockey, playing it and watching. I casually collect but I must admit I don’t pay all that much attention to the NHL.

I checked out the draft last night and have a questions for the more well verses hockey fans out there.

Does anyone other than the Oilers ever get the #1 overall pick?

I have to think next year will be someones else. How can a team with 3 consecutive #1 picks be the worst team?



One response to “I need some info…

  1. You can’t pin it on one solitary thing when it comes to Edmonton. Offense only gets you so far in the NHL. You need defense and special teams play on the PK and PP. Plus it doesn’t hurt to have a decent goaltender once in a while. The Oilers have a weak D and their goal tending hasn’t been that great for years. The other problem…management seems to think you can build a team with the best rookies and young guys around and immediately be a champion. They have just not been able to find that balance between leadership in both the locker room and on the ice. Until then, they will sit where they are.

    If this was baseball, they would be the Pirates and all those guys (Eberle, Nugent-Hopkins, Hall, etc.) would have all been traded away to contenders already. Just sayin.
