    Alternate Captain
  1. Peter Chiarelli

    It's sad because Davidson was genuinely happy to return to the Oil . I wish him the best with the Isles . At least Chia got a decent return for him considering they got him for nothing . What next ?
  2. THE HERE AND NOW

    Here and now , I can count only 10 players on the current roster worth keeping . Next season should see many roster changes . I guess , should is the operative word . Chiarelli will probably stand pat , thinking after such a poor showing this season , the team will rebound next season for sure . McDavid & Draisaitl . Yippee !!!
  3. GDT: Oilers @ Sharks, Feb 10, 8:00 PM MST

    It's all so very sad , the players I would like to see moved most on this Oiler team...... have NMC terms on their contracts .
  4. Wild Rumours thread

    You just never know . Apparently the Pens are interested in both Maroon & Letestu . Wouldn't that be interesting if the return was Justin Shultz .
  5. Are Ekman-Larsson and Mackinnon possible?

    Here's the rumor . Oilers are offering Klefbom & Strome for Ekmak-Larsson . At least as reported out of Wildwood . Sounds good to me . But seriously he makes 5.5 mil and becomes UFA after next season . Then who knows how much he will demand ? Might just be better off sticking with Klef . Even if they trade Nuge , in the long run they might just be better off keeping Nuge . But who knows where the Cap is going ? The best trade could be no trade at all .
  6. GDT: OILERS VS AVS; THURS FEB 1 @ 7 PM; SNW

    Well it's Vegas , the league wants Vegas to have a great season . Edmonton .......... not so much . What the league wants , the league gets .

    if Chiarelli could pull that one off , he would be a candidate for GM of the year . Sakic would lose his job over that one .

    Hope Alvaro has a terrific game . Even without McKinnon in the line up they can score goals . And they will be pissed after losing to the Knucks in OT . But the Oil will prevail . I'm thinking this Alvaro Montoya trade will end up being a feather in Chiarelli's cap . Oh my gosh look at all those 6's .
  9. Fortunately I missed the game . AND I'm frightened to watch the Flame game .
  10. Sorry I couldn't be of more help .
  11. 1) Because they are actually on a three game winning streak . Why mess with a winning streak ? 2) He's doing fine with Leon & Lucic . It's good to see if he can produce away from McDavid .
  12. RNH: To Trade Or Not To Trade

    Nuge will be back from IR all ready for the trade deadline . I wonder if we'll see him playing for Lord Stanley with some other team , along with Maroon & Letestu playing for their new playoff bound teams ? They should be able to get full value for Nuge , he will be fit and fresh for a playoff run . Then , if they can get a 2nd rounder for Maroon and 3rd rounder for Letestu . Why not look to next year , if the playoffs this season are out of sight ? They should know one way , or the other , by the trade deadline .
  13. Yamamotto earned that nine game stint and it should go a long way to aid his development .
  14. Nice effort by both teams after the break . Solid victory for the Oil . Pak is a RW . Puljujarvi , Kassian , Strome & Slepyshev also play RW and shoot right also . FYI .
  15. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

    They get the next 5-6 weeks to see how the team can perform without Nuge . It doesn't hurt as much with Conner & Leon in the fold . But it's a chance for the team , as a whole and certain individuals in particular , to step up . If the team does well and If the RIGHT deal comes along for Nuge . Who knows ? They mustn't let Nuge go for peanuts though . Chiarelli has to save face , or he's gonzo . Can't see any trade decision being left solely in his hands . He just gets all the credit .
