Jordin Tootoo, the well-known fourth-line pest and energy guy, is going to be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Should the Oilers go after him?

The night the Edmonton Oilers won their first Stanley, three European players won the right to have their names engraved on Hockey's Holy Grail. Jarri Kurri (Finland), Willy Lindstrom (Sweden) and Jaroslav Pouzar (Czechoslovakia) were all part of Edmonton's first elite team. How many Europeans will be on the run for glory this time?

Cameron Abney, a third round pick (82nd overall) of the Edmonton Oilers in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, played his first professional season in 2011-12. He played 14 games in the AHL, going scoreless, and 29 games in the ECHL, picking up five points. He did pick up 156 penalty minutes.
For most prospects with the hope of an NHL job, those would be ridiculously bad numbers. Yet, in Abney’s case, they’re entirely unsurprising, and don’t indicate a failing prospect.
