Oil give up on Nail. Yak to St Loo for scraps.

Why bother...you really really wanted that second rounder? Maybe the kid wanted out I guess but otherwise this seems like another chest thumping assertion of will move for Chiarelli.

Three first overall picks, now only one left. And they don't seem too keen on him either.

They don't seem too keen on McDavid??? :shock:

Or do you mean 4 1st overalls, and they're not enamored with Nugent-Hopkins?

Oh shit I forgot about McDavid. :lol: :lol: :lol: :oops:

Maybe it was because I blocked it out of my head that a team in a weighted lottery system could possibly come out with that many effin' 1st overall picks. You know how many times the Nuggets had the greatest odds (they did at least once, I'm sure there were other times) to win 1st overall in the NBA draft and NEVER FUCKING WON IT?

Yeah...I meant they don't seem to be building around RNH. He's a perfectly good player but I just get the feeling he'll be shipped out sooner or later.

I don't think it's been mentioned yet but the Oil decided to use the cap savings in the Yak deal to sign Kris "Bad Corsi" Russell to a 1-year deal.

So...ladies and gentlemen, your 2016-17 Edmonton Oilers:

Milan Lucic - Captain McDavid - Jordan Eberle
Benoit Pouliot - Leon Draisaitl - Jesse Puliujarvi
Patrick Maroon - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Zack Kassian
Anton Slepyshev - Mark Letestu - Tyler Pitlick

Oscar Klefbom - Adam Larsson
Andrej Sekera - Mark Fayne
Kris Russell - Brandon Davidson

Cam Talbot
Monstrous GAA

Well, not bad really, that top six is pretty good...but what's up with that "checking" line?

Oh and I forgot that Kris Versteeg is still there on a PTO.

You. Forgot. McDavid???

GO TO THE BOX, AND FEEL SHAME!



:lol:

I read your original post there & thought I was going crazy. I knew they had more than just 3 1sts. I'm surprised it's that few. :lol:

I don't hate the Russell signing. It's not long-term and he can soak up some minutes.

According to things I've read, Puljujärvi so far looks like he's not ready for the NHL. It would be a mistake to keep him.

The Oil look dangerous and are clearly NOT blowing it anymore.

Their post season success will largely depend on goaltending and how their opposition plan to contain McJesus.

Gee, I can't imagine that anything could possibly go wrong with this.
