Mike Richards has two Stanley Cup rings, a reputation as a two-way forward, and plays a position the Oilers desperately need help in.
He also has years of diminishing returns (in three full years in the West, he’s never cracked the 50-point mark), a general manager complaining about his summer training regimen and a Horcoffian $5.75 million cap hit for the rest of this season and the five that follow it.
Is there a trade to be made there?

David Chilton, he of Wealthy Barber and Dragon’s Den fame, knows a bad deal when he sees one. Buying tickets to watch the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place, where Daryl Katz’s team has won just 60 of 157 games since the start of the 2010-11 season, unquestionably qualifies as that.

*sigh* Final Score: 5-4 Canucks
November 19 2014 12:14PM
The Oilers play the Canucks for the sixth time since October 2nd. They lost twice in the preseason, 2-1 and 3-2 and they've already lost three times in the regular seasons, 5-4 (SO), 2-0 and 3-2.
We've talked ad nauseam about their inability to defeat a western conference team. They are 0-8-1 while being outscored 35-17. It hasn't been pretty, so today we'll look at the "positives" of tonight's game.
