If Oates can still play at top form, him on a line with Ryan Smyth could be very interesting. Even if Oates is completely out of shape, he's still one of the top 3 faceoff men in the game. Edited for grammer. (edited by richcon on 18.11.03 0055) Rediscover communication. Promote this thread!

ICQ: # 2 Posted on 18.11.03 0130.27 | Instant Rating: 5.10 Oates played pretty well for a man his age in Anaheim last year. He's a good pickup, and should bring a lot to that team both in a statistical and a leadership sense. The bigger implication? I take this as a pretty sure sign that the Oilers have abandonned hope of bringing back Mike Comrie, or acquiring anything of value for his rights.

Kevin Lowe has been shopping around Comrie since before the season started, I believe. Nothing worthwhile has come of it.

Nothing worthwhile has come of it. He gets to be there but MARK MESSIER is the playing *IN* the Heritage Classic Game. Gretzky, Messier, Kurri, back together again! The Habs tried to get Patrick Roy as a ringer but he's busy.
I think Guerin was the backup plan if they didn't get Holik. They are doing well this offseason. Don't forget, I called 90+ points for next year when the playoffs started.
