A lot of Cup talk over the summer, that's for sure. Big year for Holloway and Broberg. Both guys have had some bad luck with injuries. Holloway reminds me a little of Taylor Hall. Fans need to be patient with Broberg especially. Yeah, I think he's playing it safe. Not like his first training camp where fans were really wowed. Maybe being paired with the Viking will help his development.

p.s. Do not put Lavoie on waivers! Somebody claims him for sure. If he doesn't have a roster spot by the time the season starts, trade him.

Cup Time in the thread title? Bold move. At least ketchup is inexpensive, and sort of masks the taste of crow.

Magpies eating crows. Great visual.

Hope they have a great season.

I don’t think it will backfire to that degree though. There’s just too many Mcdavids on the team for that to happen.

This team has been an utter embarassing failure since 1990, they fluked into the finals in 2006 post lockout, then they missed the playoffs 10 years in a row and missed something like 12 times in 13 years, they picked first overall 4 times in 6 years, they drafted the best player since Crosby/Ovechkin and still have missed the playoffs or have done nothing, their ownership and coaching has been a clownshow with some horrible accusations against them, they cheated on the cap multiple times, signed the worst dirtbag gambling dirtbag in the league and they only have 1 player on the roster who was alive when they won the cup (a newborn at the time), the arena is a grey depressing ridiculous monstrosity that is already out of style where you have to **** in a bottle if you want to make the next period, this team is the Cleveland Browns of the NHL and possibly the worst pro league sports team in North America over the last 30+ years, in yet I still love them and hope they win the Cup before Draisaitl skips town with McDavid in tow. I am a long suffering Oilers fan, at least I have 5 Cups to look back on from 5 decades ago, please win the Cup Oilers and redeem our team for the 3 decades of darkness.

Amazing that through all of this they still come out looking "5x" as good as the team 300k south who in their history have pretty much won....nothing.

Not sure why the Flamers are always the comparison…

All that McRib and Drai regular season razzle dazzle for years and just as competitive as the recently added Seattle Kraken. MEH…

You can't really believe that. A simple standings check would say otherwise.

I don’t know why but every year Oiler fans always figure they have the cup conquered in the preseason. Then March comes around and you’re throwing jerseys on the ice and ready to fire everybody. Makes for good entertainment.

Season isn’t even underway yet, but the squawkers and chirpers are in fine form.

I enjoy following the team and it’s delusional fan base.

Seattle with just two years in the league went just as far as the Mighty Oil last year.

Facts are facts.

If healthy when entering the playoffs, we will go as far as our goaltending allows.

That cliche goes for the other 15 teams entering the playoffs as well..

Woody sure likes that Skinner kid. Never in 40 years of watching the NHL have I ever witnessed a club pull a goalie 4 times in one playoff year, let alone keep going back to him each time to start the next game…..

Hopefully Campbell got that couch time with his shrink this past off season. He must be thinking wtf….

Ok, I will say it another way. With slightly better than average goaltending, we will win the cup this year. Take it to the bank.

Better?

Skinner deserved the Calder. Matty Beniers year for a Calder winning forward was very average.

They couldn’t go to Campbell. Skinner earned the chance. His teammates likely felt the exact same. I’d say whoever Connor wants in net is who goes into the net. Serious.

It’s was a goal tending debacle when goaltending counted the most.

I want this team to win for this community but man there has been some cringey stuff over the years…

Can’t change the past, so why dwell on it? Move on bud. This is a good hockey team. To be in the conversation is all you can realistically ask. There is a salary cap and 31 other teams vying for the same prize.

We have as good a chance as any.

Better chances booking tee off times for the team come spring then planning a cup parade.
