A lot of depth in the organization. The most in decades probably. Last chance for players like Benson and Marody?

Anyone making predictions?

I'm predicting 2nd in the division behind Vegas. 48 wins, 20 losses, 14 OTL.
110 points. They make the final 4 in the playoffs.

Excited for the season. I believe we have greater depth upfront than we have had in years. Hopefully the bottom 6 will actually be able to play hockey and contribute this year.

I still think there is some question marks on D and more importantly in goal.

Gonna be an interesting season nonetheless!

A lot of depth added to the line up BUT we still need a decent number 1 goalie
We won't go deep into the playoffs without one

Bessie couldn't be satisfied with buying me a good bottle over the election results. So I already have my bet in so he can buy me a couple after we see how the season plays out with a 40 year old in net.

Go Oil.....

Why are you cavorting with people in banned camp? Bad company corrupts good character. Flames fan and all. Beware, Bessie. Dangerous ground. But his money is green, so if he wants to pzz it away again, as he did last year, grab all you can get. No mercy rule this season though. Softie.

You just shush your nasty lips! Right now!!

Have you gone on that Covid thread? People are wishing death on each other.

No more of those super threads.

Plus, no coherent convo takes place. The attention span is zero. Following the conversation is like being a hamster on crack.

Serious

Wink Delusions of grandeur?

I read the thread title and my first thought is "Huh, mushrooms must be in season".

smith will go down to injury and koskinen will fail us. we will try rookie goalies and squeek into the playoffs. mcdavid and drai go 1@2 again in points. ill be hopeful that one of the 2 win the richard this year. nurse will be a norris condidate. mediocre playoff run i predict. next year will be the year with a new goalie.

In yesterday’s media scrum Jim Matheson mentioned to Koskinen “the fans want another goaltender other than you, does that upset you?”

Ouch lol……

Between that and the article Mark Spector wrote attacking Josh Archibald personally one wonders why anyone would want to play for the Oilers at all.
