Edmonton Oilers!!!
 
I know that there are Oiler fans out there. Show your faces!

Are you guys excited about our new team?

I'm convinced that our boys are going to do very well this year. The whole city of Edmonton (and much of central Alberta) expect them to. I believe that when people expect great things from you, you achieve great things. Let's hope that this proves true for the Oilers this season.

Much has been said of Pronger and Peca, but I think that this will be the breakout year for Hemsky! In the 03/04 season, I witnessed brief moments of incredible hockey from Hemsky. If he can get comfortable with the NHL's new rules and develop some confidence, he could score 30 goals this year. I know that might be a stretch, but remember; the new rules will allow for more scoring.

So which rookie will get a shot at a centre position, Schremp or Statsny? I think the Oilers would be dumb not to give Schremp a shot. There is going to be a boatload of powerplays, and Schremp, being a powerplay specialist, is going to help. Lowe wil put either Schremp or Statsny in for the first part of the season and if things aren't working out, he'll sign a big-name centre (Handzus & Zoltok have both been rumoured).

We only have a few weeks until the puck drops for the regular season. Needless to say, I'm pumped about my team.

GO OILERS!

Statsny will be the one to watch, in my opinion. Edmonton will again have a fast team, as is their legacy...the big questions for them will goals against, and whether Pronger can stay injury-free.

On a side note, it's too bad Messier couldn't finish out his career in Edmonton....his retirement seems so anticlimactic after the lockout.:(

you did. but then it was swallowed by the myNHL behemoth.

this will be the thread for the season. when wade belak bags his 50th in february, this is where we will celebrate.

Farewell, Deadmarsh.

He was my favorite Avalanche before Skoula and it's sad to see him retire. He was a good, gritty player. It was the beginning of the end for the Avs when they traded him. (Though, given his injury, they probably would have been in the same predictament.)

Zoomerang96 09-24-2005 12:48 PM

haha, wade belak? :wink:

lots of players retired recently, including deadmarsh.

bure still hasn't. he said he'll make up his mind in october/november after checking with NA doctors once more on any progress being made to his right knee that has already had 7 ma7or surgeries... :huh:

It SUCKED!

Pittsburg sent the IHL team (Scranton-Wilkes Barre) to play. Crosby wasn't there. Jagr wasn't there. Gonchar...NO ONE. I am a little pissed. BUT, it was good to see hockey.

Caps won 3-2.

boosterjuice 09-25-2005 11:37 PM

Sens seem to have a great team this year. I'll be expecting them finish first in the east. As for the playoffs???

Jagr wasn't there because he is on my team,the NY Rangers....now after stating that.... it will be a long winter here for Ranger fans I predict. But it is good to have the NHL back.....
