In June of 2006 if the Canes sent Eric Staal over the boards the Oilers could counter with Shawn Horcoff, Ryan Smyth, Radek Dvorak, Chris Pronger and Jason Smith. If Rod Brindamour followed then out came Raffi Torres, Mike Peca, Fernando Pisani, Jaro Spacek and Steve Staios. And we haven't mentioned Ethan Moreau.
Tonight when Jarome Iginla hits the ice MacT most likely will have Staios and Joni Pitkanen as well as Horcoff, Torres and, um, maybe Ales Hemsky? When Huselius follows he will see maybe Marty Reasoner, Kyle Brodziak, Geoff Sanderson, Dick Tarnstrom and Matt Greene.
Ok. Any questions as to why this team is going to have a tough time winning games this season?
