No more for you Terry!

No more for you Terry!

Continuing on with the break it down series. The others can be found at the following location.

I skipped this part of the series last year, cause I could only talk about Tambellini so much, and really the only change had been Renney for Krueger.

But now! Tambellini was fired which could only be described as “about fucking time!”, and while I don’t think Krueger necessarily deserved to be fired his lack of line matching probably doesn’t fit with the approach the new GM wishes to take.

The job is his, can he do it now?

Finally, FINALLY, Khabi is off of the team. I’d say that contract/signing has been the biggest glaring mistake of the entire Tambellini regime (not that he did much of anything else). And with that, this team is now Dubnyk’s to take to the promised land.

Continuing on with my series of posts that break down the Oiler’s different areas, today we look at the defense.

This was the problem area for the 2013 Oilers, and will still be the biggest issue for the 2013/14 Edmonton Oilers.

We have some prospect depth, but I just don’t think we have the horses needed at the NHL level.

Lets take a look at what we have so far:

Maybe we can see something like this soon

Like I did last year, I am going to do a series of posts discussing the team and how I think they will do in the coming year. Reading musts is Lowetide and his breakdown of each player, and big props to Behind the Net and Capgeek for all of my stats/salary info.

This is the year. Things are starting to look up, and this will be the year that the team finally makes the turn and starts for the finish line. A new GM is in, replacing the useless one (ah, remember the optimism when he was hired!). A new coach is in (not that the old one was the issue).

This is the year that they no longer are the laughing stock of the league.

Lets start with the forwards:

Nothing has changed. Same group as last year. Except I have more faith that Dubnyk can do it, and more faith that Kreuger will bench that shitty one.
