I return home from the greatest fishing trip of my life (more on that in a few days) and I see that the Hall-hype is in overdrive, the Oilers still don’t have a veteran 3rd liner, Ilya Kovalchuk is still an UFA and Lebron James might have the biggest sports ego of all-time.

Petiot played in Rockford last year, the Blackhawks farm team and tallied eight goals and 37 points in 80 games. He is 6'4" adn 210 pounds and will be a depth D-man in case of injuries and should play in Oklahoma City.
