ya, ya - your Trumpian use of superlatives/exaggeration has (already) been noted! But hey now, to your referenced 2008/Katz ownership and Oiler fans, how many games haven't been sellouts?  ;D

so... just what is your benchmark reference(s) for "#1 picks going to die"? Historically, there's no shortage of #1 picks that haven't met expectations... if you knew anything about the sport, you'd know that the Yakupov pick can't be attributed to a management want - that's entirely on Katz as he's the guy who pushed for him. If you want to whine about owners over-stepping management domain, that's another discussion; one that doesn't align with/support your current diatribe.

wait now, are you speaking to #1 picks being paid huuuuge/bigly in their death marches? (note the waldo use of Trumpian language in an attempt to bond)! Are you talking about the generational #1 pick... cause you're using a very short duration to measure anything on that pick - notwithstanding what the long-term signing of McDavid has meant in terms of cap implications. Being the neophyte you clearly are, would you like the waldo to explain the salary cap to you - and the implications of what bumping up against the cap means/influences? So you're down to 2 #1 picks to attempt to rationalize your nonsense... please proceed to explain your puffery - please proceed, governor!

Edmonton has had four #1ís in the last nine years. Vancouver has had zero in itís 49 year history. Poor bloody Edmonton, the burden must be crippling.

I've always liked the Oilers, but their management is **** poor for the past decade. It is a shame Katz has ran that once proud franchise into the ground.

I lived in Edmonton for several years during the Oiler's pre Gretzky WHL days and have been somewhat of a fan since. They sure have been an under performing franchise for some time. Oh well, makes it less depressing to be a Canucks fan.

accommodating waldo: the waldo neither spoke of or implied anything burdensome (crippling or otherwise)... please take solace in having the waldo provide you an avenue to vent your noted historical pent-up Canucks frustration - 0 cups/49 years versus the Oilers 5 cups/40 years!

Calm down.

calm waldo simply responded to your pissant troll... seeing you unable/unwilling to answer subsequent questions/challenge to your, "#1 picks going to die" shyte is noted.

being the neophyte you appear as, management also entails amateur/pro scouting as well as development team(s) - the Oilers now have a most legitimate tally of players in the pipeline. Apparently you're unaware of the Katz role in keeping the franchise in Edmonton while being the driver behind the current #1 ranked 'state-of-the art' arena... notwithstanding (also driving) the most significant revitalization of Edmonton's downtown core.

You went on about struggles with the salary cap. They have the same cap as every other team and with all those #1 picks it isn't like they had nothing to trade. Cry me a river.

Even if this was true, the Oilers have a history of mismanaging their talent.

First off, the Oilers were never in danger of moving. Katz have the Investors Group an offer they could not refuse to buy the team. Second of all, I guess you must be unaware of the tactics Katz used to push his arena bid through. It's not like Katz was some kind of Saint that built the new Edmonton arena out of the goodness of his heart. He used pressure tactics to extract a sweetheart deal out of the City of Edmonton to construct the facility.

no - I spoke to cap hit influences (but didn't directly speak to the significant impact of recent, for example, long-term McDavid/Draisaitl signings)... does railing on about Oiler management ignore key signings like those? Speaking of: you should be the guy speaking to why the Canucks have not been playing to the cap; why they have a current cap space of ~ 29 million/projected cap space of ~$10 million. Geezaz, are you waiting for a big buy at the trade deadline... will the Canucks 'fish or cut bait'?  ;D

no - you're the one repeatedly slamin' poor Katz! Absolutely, the Oilers would have moved... without a new arena - which included the legitimate Katz "implied" threats to move the team to Seattle. By the by, have you heard: Seattle was just awarded a new team franchise - go figure! Being you extol the virtues of bidnessMan Trump, why so down on Katz, hey?  ;D

That must keep you busy 'round the clock.

Your girlfriend keeps me busy around the clock, but that's neither here nor there.
