Went through this a year or two ago...
Oiler fans are passionate. Let's try to respect one another either way. Not going to say who did this or who did that. It would help a bit if you were more positive at times instead of gloom and doom. So it goes both ways. Hopefully this post is constructive.
Jurco was detroit's top prospect drafted by Holland. He has had injuries. Once healthy he tore it up in the playoffs last year. Sounds a lot like Benson who finally had a healthy year last year. It would be nice to sign Dzingel (with Manning $ buried). Granlund as said by Holland is calculated to get double digit goals and help defensively. Now if one of Jurco, Haas, Nygard can surprise would be nice... and JJK getting back to double digits. He really had an off year last year.
Overall we have improved but other teams have improved also.
No long term contracts and huge money handed out on older players so that's well done by Holland in my book. Yes we are paying for Sek but two years in a row unhealthy, getting older, too expensive to be a 3rd line guy. I can understand Holland's reasoning to free up cap space now and next year. Hopefully we see that Dzingel or another player come in before the season starts with that money. Then we will have a much stronger roster.
