Sam Gagner is no longer a member of the Edmonton Oilers. Gagner was dealt to Tampa Bay for Teddy Purcell. ***Update. Tampa just traded him to Arizona.**

The Buffalo Sabres bought out Christian Ehrhoff earlier today, and he immediately becomes one of the best available for free agency this summer. The Vollman Sledgehammer has some nice numbers and colors, and the German is in a good part of the graph. Should the Oilers pursue him?

The Edmonton Oilers entered the weekend with one lottery pick and 5 lottery tickets, and that's exactly what happened.

The good news is Leon Draisaitl brings the combination of size and skill the Edmonton Oilers have been lacking down the middle in their mix of top-six forwards for several seasons.
The bad news, unless GM Craig MacTavish gets something done on the free agent or trade front to acquire a pivot with the stature and skill to bring the same dimensions Draisaitl does, is the big German from the Prince Albert Raiders might be pressed into that role when the 2014-15 season begins.
