The question of whether Sam Gagner or Gilbert Brule is going to be a better player for the Oilers has come up a few times here at Oilers Nation, including in Lowetide’s excellent (and almost entirely unrelated) article earlier today. A comparison of their performances at the same ages might shed some light on the matter.

Since it’s been a while since I’ve put an article up, and since I have trouble focusing on one topic, I’m going to jump all over the map here.

It’s been a relatively busy off-season for Steve Tambellini, who has shunned the pursuit of big names in favour of a slower, more long-term rebuilding work. The one place where he has made significant changes is at the bottom of the NHL roster and to the makeup of the Oilers’ AHL affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons.

In a 2009-10 season that had a lot of disappointments, the play of Dustin Penner never managed to qualify. In fact, the previously much-maligned winger had the best season of his career, and transformed himself in the public’s eye from impossible to move contract to best forward on the team (at least, while Hemsky was out).

I’d like to discuss Ryan Stone with the denizens of the Nation for a moment. The former Oiler has signed a free agent contract with the Calgary Flames, and while it’s a depth signing he’s a player I’m sorry to see leave the organization.
