The Edmonton Oilers issued qualifying offers to their restricted free agents on Monday, and for the most part they stayed the course. Every single RFA received a contract, with one exception: defenceman Taylor Fedun.

The trade of Sam Gagner for Teddy Purcell was a positive one for the Oilers in a lot of ways. It added a useful top-six forward to the mix, someone with a history of strong possession numbers and good scoring totals. As an added bonus, it added a 6’3” winger who has missed all of three games in four seasons.
It also signaled, more convincingly than the words of management or the reports from those privy to inside information could, that Edmonton is committed to running three scoring lines at forward next season.

Last week we started doing an auction for our friend Kelty that needs an expensive surgery in the USA. Our first item, a series of mounted posters, sold for $900 and we were blown away by the generosity! Today, we've got another great item for auction and I think you guys are going to dig it.

The lunacy known as free agency begins tomorrow. Million dollar contracts get handed out more freely and recklessly than pipes at a crack house.
Management and fans get addicted to the belief that the woes of their team will be solved via free agency, and many are willing to do it at any cost.
This year will be no different.
