The Race for the #1 pick in 2010!

Recommended Posts

I've been wondering the same thing as ESPN, when is JR going to find a suitable dance partner for this trade ho-down we've been expecting? We should start a pool for this with the winner choosing the date give or take a day. Bonus points for choosing the players traded or the teams involved.

Most draft pics,#1 or #10 or #20 usually take years to get to the NHL level. That is why IMO we really should't be worring about getting the top draft pic. We have so many areas that need to be looked at,that putting our efforts or (lack there of) into a unproven very young player is just crazy. If we were close to being a compettative team and we were missing that 1 link,then yes but with all the areas that need work it will be years before a #1 pick would be able to make any imapct at all.

Disagree Strongly, from stamkos to tavares,from patrick kane, to evengi malkin and ovechkin, to crosby to fluery, staal and horton to rick nash and  kovalpuke many ,many top picks impact immediately AND esp in years 2-10 contrubute greatly and in many cases do turn a team quickly.

 new beginning for the Edmonton Oilers starts with the Draft Lottery on either Apr. 12 or 13 (TBD).

A top-three pick will allow Edmonton to draft a potential star in June, be it a forward, either Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin, or defenceman Cam Fowler, who is ranked third among North American skaters by the NHL's Central Scouting Bureau.

All three have the potential to be cornerstone players.

The Oilers had a superstar, namely Chris Pronger, who helped them to Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup final before Pronger decided Edmonton wasn't for him.

Without a superstar, it's almost impossible to win and the only way to acquire one without mortgaging the future is through the draft.

There are no guarantees Hall, Seguin or Fowler will develop into the franchise player the Oilers so desperately need, but it's the right place to start.

Maybe we should shop Whitney and some other guys in a package for the oilers 1st round pick, so we could get both Seguin and Hall for sure smile.gif
How about we give you guy's Horcoff and Gilbert and O'Sullivan for your 1st pick. That would be a great deal.laugh.gif
Then the oil could get both. How sweet would that be.

GO CANES GO!!! Win that is!!!!

  True! but his favorite color is Blue grin.gif! and moving from a Spitfire's jersey to an Oilers Jersey is in the cards for Mr. Hall. We in edmonton are 'willing' it to be the truth so... Go Canes. Besides you have Eric Staal who's almost a superstar. So it would be fair if you gave us that 1st pick of yours too!!

Ahh, but our Eric Staal can become that superstar with young Hall on his wing.  We'll paint his new home in Raleigh blue if it makes you feel better. wink.gif

Oilers pick up a point but lose their ninth straight.

Next game vs. Dallas on Friday.

Thus insuring we remain in last for at least another game with the 3 point lead : )

We will not go down easy!

Don't get too excited Edmonton fans, the win tonight was for our Captains, past and present.  The next week of games should solidify our 30th place in the standings. smile.gif

Down to one point. I fear that the Staal captaincy will be enough for us to climb out of the cellar. It is going to be tough to beat Edmonton in this one. We're going to need to start the fire sale soon to stay in it. Also, start the back up goalie a few times for crying out loud. I'm looking at Toronto now. At least their first round pick was traded.

Another injury on the blueline for the Oilers. Yippie.

A couple of streaks go head to head in Northern Alberta: The Oilers 9 game overall losing streak vs. the Dallas Stars 10 game road losing streak. Which one will come to an end? (Hint: It won't be the Oilers)

Wow, not only are the Oilers closing in on us for last place, but several Oilers players - Horcuff, O'Sullivan, and Nilsson - are all closing in on Rod Brindamour's league bottom plus/minus rating.

I am about to give up hope for the number 1 draft pick.  These guys are just pure professionals at tanking.
