There’s tough questions, and there’s just plain being a d!ck.

Matheson should have his press pass removed, or at least suspended for a while. What a total ******* question to start a season. It could have been asked in a million better ways. You can bet that within that dressing room, he’s persona non grata. One word answers and no availability beyond the minimum requirement for the season.

As for Spector, there are A LOT of guys out there that Sportsnet could tap to take his place that would be a big upgrade. Regardless of your views, the personal attack on Archibald was completely uncalled for. It was covered infinitely better by the guys at Oilersnation and elsewhere, who simply presented the facts.

There’s a few question marks around the roster for sure, but every team has those. I’m more optimistic about this roster than any Oilers team in the last decade +. In a very short time frame, we’ve gone from dreaming of making the playoffs, to not being satisfied with anything short of a couple playoff round wins and a Stanley Cup. That’s a remarkable turnaround, and I think the pieces are in place to sustain that level of play for a long time. Pretty good time to be an Oilers fan…

I believe all humans should be treated with dignity and respect regardless of their income levels. Seems like some Edmonton Oilers writers struggle with that.

Spector is a hypocrite lefty. He was the first to think the players should
Be offered compassion when they kneel for a anthem or whatever. Obviously this choice for the player is a tough one. Give him some compassion.

Not so much... If I did though, I would be on your side just to watch heads explode!

Said it before and will say it again.

Oilers will be the next Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup!

Can be as early as this year.

Why in hell is this guy back on the forum. He was banned. Tirebob, send him packing. hH does not belong on our Oilers thread. We are Hatfields. He’s a McCoy. He’s McCoy right down to the brown stripes on his underwear. All McCoy’s have them. And worse. Most carry syphillis too.

As long as Bessie keeps betting on Edmonton, their odds are pretty poor of winning much

So he is so tired of losing, he is switching over to cross country running, instead of hockey?

Good thing Oilers picked up Old Duncan Keith to protect Old Smith....

Those two guys boost the average player age by 4, just between them!
