The biggest problem I see with the future of the Oilers is the size. Gagner and Cogs are smaller guys and then you have Taveres coming up whose also a smaller guy too.

They may have a ton of talent, but to have a team with your three biggers stars being that small I don't see as a good thing.

That last sentence sounds familiar??? :rolleyes:

I would like to have that guy on my team, but : Jordan Eberle, C Height: 5-10 Weight: 174 lbs

But if they can get that guy : Name: Taylor Hall Number: 4 Pos.: LW Shoots: L Height: 6.01 Weight: 185

+ they have Penner. But yeah, they are a bit small in generall.

And I fell Hemsky is too much injury prone. (like Semin :( )

No doubt Hemsky is a good player, but I think their push to the Cup Final that year helped raise his price. He hasn't been that spectacular to be earning was he does. Also, Horcoff is dead in the water and over priced too.

The Oliers are dumping a lot of cash on Souray, Horcoff, Hemsky and obviously Penner and not getting the big dollar results in return.

His best season was in 2005-2006, but it was his only «full» (almost) season in the NHL.

He had 22 points in 22 this year and was the main reason Penner was that hot at the start of the year. His production really came down when Hemsky went out. You have to realize with who he is playing. And he is still just 25.

+, he could make more money not less. If you can get 65 points in the NHl, you will make 5M if you are a vet and do it on a regular basis (Kovalev, Gionta). Hemsky is more a 75 points player and could make 5,5 / 5,75 a year. He only makes 4.100 (cap hit), wich is a bargain for him. Problem remain his health and the players around him. At least Penner showed good things with him.

I agree with Souray and Horcoff. Penner can't do everything by himself and Hemsky is a good player, when healthy.

There's going to be some big changes to this team for sure.

I still think their biggest mistake of late, was not re-signing Smyth or fighting harder to keep him. The team lost a HUGE part of their heart and soul when Smyth left - that's not something that's easily replaced (obviously).

Quinn is done. ;)

EDMONTON -- Edmonton Oilers goalie Nikolai Khabibulin is facing charges of drunk driving and speeding following an incident in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Khabibulin was pulled over in a black Ferrari that was seen speeding down a street just after midnight Feb. 8, officer Dave Pubins said Wednesday.

The officer estimated the driver's speed to be well over 60 miles an hour, and the speed limit there was 45. In fact, his radar got the vehicle travelling at 70," Pubins said.

The driver identified himself as Nikolai Khabibulin and the officer noticed that Khabibulin had an odour of alcohol emanating from him. Khabibulin also admitted to drinking earlier in the evening."

Khabibulin said he had consumed one glass of wine, according to a report prepared by the arresting officer, but had watery, bloodshot eyes and was speaking slowly.

He was booked on charges of driving under the influence and excessive speed and then released. He is due back in court Feb. 26.

Khabibulin joined the Oilers in the off-season after stints with the Chicago Blackhawks, Phoenix Coyotes and the Winnipeg Jets, as well as a run with the Tampa Bay Lightning that included a Stanley Cup win in 2004.

The Oilers had high hopes for the 37-year-old Russian, and signed him to a four-year, US$15-million deal. But he has missed most of the season with back problems, and had season-ending surgery for a herniated disc last month.

Thumbs up Gilbert!!! :)

EDMONTON - An Edmonton Oilers player announced Thursday he will be adding $10,000 to a growing fund for a city boy's miracle surgery.

Maddox Flynn, 2, travelled with his father Mike to New York City on Tuesday for a procedure to fix a rare malformation on the left side of his face.

Doctors in Canada haven't been able to treat Maddox's lymphatic cystic hydroma, but his parents found a pricey alternative when they tracked down a U.S. specialist.

The two-part operation comes with a $50,000 bill, excluding the cost of travel.

Since the family came forward with their story, people from across the country have donated more than $50,000.

Oilers player Gilbert Brule decided to add his big cheque to the pot after hearing the heartbreaking tale.

"Like all Edmontonians I was touched by this story and wanted to do my part to help Maddox make a full recovery," he said in a release.

"Our whole team is rooting for Maddox and his family as they show courage during this challenging time."

Anyone who wants to donate can e-mail maddoxflynntrustfund@hotmail.com or visit a RBC branch in Edmonton and donate to the Maddox Terrence Flynn Trust Fund.

Any leftover funds will be donated to the Stollery Children's Hospital and the clinic of the U.S. doctor who is slated to operate on Maddox.
