    2018-19 Oilers Season Thread

    I guess with camp opening this week, it's time for a fresh thread. Hopefully the Oilers aren't out of the playoffs until at least after the first snowfall this year.

    *checks the forecast for tomorrow*

    Crap.

    Sekera injured again. Nurse without a contract and less than $4M in cap space. Where do I sign up to play D for the Oilers? Somebody has to.

      It could possibly snow this week so that should help them with that.

          They're going to be bad again this year. Don't believe otherwise until you see evidence of success on the ice.

            The suggestion that last year was an off year after the year before and they'll rebound is setting us up for more failure. When you've finished near the bottom in 11 out of 12 years, the one year that you made the playoffs is the anomaly, not the other way around.

              They weren't as good as 2 years ago. They weren't as bad as they were last year. 95 points and make the playoffs in the final wildcard spot.

              Bounce back years from Klefbom, Talbot, and slightly better secondary scoring the difference. I also expect them to make a big move come deadline time...

                For me, fatigue is settling in. After this many years, I just don't know how much energy it's worth to invest in following a team that has repeatedly demonstrated that it isn't worth following.

                I'm posting this mostly so that they can prove me wrong
                Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

                  As an aside....anything happens to Talbot, #97, Draisaitl, or Klefbom/Larsson...and we are back to a bottom 5 team.

                      With what cap space? Unless you mean we're out of the playoffs by then and trading away an established player for draft picks.

                        Everyone contender for the division got better this off season. Arizona and Vancouver don't count.

                        Chia sucks. No playoffs once again.

                          Well once Sekera hits the LTIR...we have 9.5 million in cap space.

                              IMO, he is going to Robidas island...
