Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jonathan Willis of The Cult of Hockey at the Edmonton Journal,
It was a dark and ugly campaign for the Oilers. The 2009-10 NHL season saw the implosion of the retooling effort the team had carried out in the aftermath of the 2006 Stanley Cup Final run, and launched an official era of rebuilding in Edmonton.
With the moves made this summer, every single player who took to the ice for that team has now been purged from the system.
It’s a remarkable statement. Forty different skaters appeared in at least on game for Edmonton that season. Thirty-five of those 40 had already been dealt prior to the 2013-14 season, but Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish managed to knock off the rest over the course of the year.
