2006 2007 NHL Season Preview - Can the Edmonton Oilers Repeat as Western Conference Champions?

Well well well the 2006 2007 NHL hockey season starts in two days. Just over three months ago, the Edmonton Oilers fell a little short in their bid for their sixth stanley cup. I'm still losing sleep over this..... (especially since the Oilers blew a 3-0 lead in game one of the finals).

There were a lot of transactions and player movement during the offseason. The biggest disappointment was Chris Pronger jumping ship from Edmonton to Anaheim. Lame move... why sign a five year deal with the Oil only to play one season there? Edmonton is not that bad of a city, there are definitely worse cities to play in. He will be missed in Edmonton. I am expecting big things from the Canadian teams this year.

Can the Habs improve upon last year? Will the Leafs fall even further? Can Ottawa go all the way? Will the Flames catch fire and return to the finals? Will the Canucks miss the playoffs? But the biggest question, will the Oilers again dominate the West? Go Oilers Go!!!

...and let the games begin.
