I'm just going to list the top players from each team and compare, at the end if any oiler fan can tell me on that they can be certain the Oilers are a better team let me know.
Sykora 53 points..oops sorry guys couldn't pay him enough to play there either should I move on to Nylander?? EEERRRR my bad, let me start over.
Horcoff- 16 g 35a 51 points Langkow- 33g 44a 77 points- Flames
Stoll- 13 g 26 a 39p Lombardi- 20 g 26a 46p- Flames (even if stoll was injured, being rugged is part of the game, his ppg is better but he was made of glass last year)
Top right wings (this will be funny):
Hemsky- 13g 40a 53 p Iginla- 35g 55a 94 p- Flames (this almost counts as two...)
Pisani- 14g 14a 28p Nolan- 16g 24a 40p- Flames
Top left wings (sorry I have to take a break now...I've been laughing too hard):
Sanderson- 11g 18a 29 p oh no no I mean Penner ( i mean they paid tanguay money for him why not compare??) Penner 29g 16a 45 p Tanguay 22g 59a 81 p (almost double...good job lowe)
Moreau- 1 p...okay I'll be nice and give him his average 30p Huselius 34g 43a77p- Flames
Hmm how about a theorhetical question, if you were to ask any GM in the league who'd they'd want on their top four would you pick:
Phaneuf/Regehr/ Sarich/ Aucoin
Souray/ Pitkanen/ Staios and Smid...
The top two had a collective minus 52 last year... the other two didn't break even either, sounds perfect for their...
Roloson or Kipper. Well... only one of them is a vezina winner who won the Jenning trophy by HIMSELF. -Flames
Craig Mactavish or Mike Keenan? Both aren't wonderful but Keenan has won the cup and been to the final 4 times. Our assistant was a head coach who got into the playoffs last year, yours is a head coach who should have considered putting a helmet on when he was playing. - Flames
Ours still has respect around the league- Flames
I'm sorry but no matter how much you argue or warm your milk up before you cry, the Flames are the better team, be objective, look at the stats...
If I was to award one point to the Oilers Organization it would be to their prospects as they have drafted really well... it's hard to miss with three first rounders though...
