I suppose this article could be taken as further proof that I hate Steve Tambellini. Or the Oilers. Or possibly just Mondays.
I wanted to pass along an update on Nikolai Khabibulin’s back problems, and unfortunately the news isn’t particularly good.

During his time as General Manager of the Edmonton Oilers, Kevin Lowe had his share of dodged bullets. The failed pursuit of Michael Nylander stands out in that category, as does the decision by the Buffalo Sabres to match Thomas Vanek’s offer sheet (thus sparing the Oilers the loss of four consecutive first round draft choices).
We can now add a dodged bullet to Steve Tambellini’s resume.

Free agent day isn’t over yet, but the Oilers have made their first move, bringing in defenceman Kurtis Foster, and they’ve also made decisions on two other players. In all three cases, General Manager Steve Tambellini comes out looking pretty good.

While I’m not euphoric over the recent moves made by Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini, they do show a certain willingness on his part to get his hands dirty and do what needs to be done, and as a result the Oilers approach July 1 in a better position than might have been expected only a few short weeks ago.

Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin isn’t a discussion that’s been confined to fans of the Edmonton Oilers. The team with the second overall pick, Boston, has a big stake in the outcome, and it doesn’t sound like Bruins G.M. Peter Chiarelli is going to let Steve Tambellini make his decision without at least attempting to sway the outcome.
