NHL 2007 Draft

 

#SAVEUSPRONGER (Recapping NHL Drafts from Pronger’s Departure – 2007 Edition)

Written By Ken Moorhouse (RHBDKEN)

The 2006-07 season for the Edmonton Oilers can be categorized as a slow moving disaster as the realization of the fact that we were now nowhere close to the same team we were just the previous season. After the last draft the Oilers in very desperate moves tried to fill in the voids that were left by Pronger with developing 2nd line winger Joffrey Lupul, Defenseman Ladislav Smid and several draft picks. Still however it was a quite summer for Kevin Lowe as the only major move he made was picking up Jan Hejda from the Buffalo Sabers who proved to be a very good depth defenseman in the NHL.

Once the season started the Oilers floated with a .500 record that lasted until the NHL Trade Deadline where the second biggest face of the franchise player was traded due to a contract dispute. Ryan Smyth was shipped off to the Islanders for forwards Robert Nilsson, Ryan O’Marra and the Islanders 1st round pick 15th Overall in the 2007 NHL Draft.

Right after this major trade the Oilers play on the ice sharply declined as we fell from just below the playoff line to 6th last in the NHL in a matter of two months. This then prepared Continue reading '#SAVEUSPRONGER – A look back at the NHL 2007 Entry Draft'»

Can’t say I am too excited about it. Both sides annoyed me over this, but lots of tweets right now saying the NHL and NHLPA have reached a tentative agreement. Still some things to work out, but that will happen soon enough. It’s 5AM out east and they’re still talking.

The 2nd annual Putting On The Foil pool is about to kick off, folks. Spots are limited (12… 14?). Anyone is welcome to join, although because I like to know whose ass I’m kicking, slight priority will be given to regulars of the foil and people who were in last year’s pool. But don’t let that deter you from signing up though, if you are a lurker.

Gr8one did a fantastic job of organizing it last year, and has volunteered (or been voluntold?) to do it again this year. Thanks, gr8one! If it’s similar to last years, expect it to be a Yahoo pool involving a draft. Once the season kicks off, you’ll have to set your lineups for games each night. Sounds like a lot of work, but you can do it all a bit in advance. My recommendation is to pick one night a week, do the whole week at once, and then tweak your lineup as needed each night. You will be able to perform trades with other GMs as well as waive and pick up players on waivers. Last year was a lot of fun, but more so for me, and not for all you sissies that lost. *flexxx*

Soo, how do you join?

Well, feel free to post a comment in here if you like, but to join:

Send an e-mail to contact@puttingonthefoil.com (<- click link) with your screen name on Putting on the Foil and stating that you would like to join the pool (both are important) and I will then forward it off to gr8one. Simple as that. Some of you have expressed interest in other threads, but I need an e-mail from you because that e-mail address will be what gr8one uses for his invites.
