Gilbert Brule avoided arbitration and signed a tidy two-year, $3.7 million deal with the Oilers on Tuesday. With Brule under contract that leaves Jeff Deslauriers, who will sign before his August 4th arbitration hearing, Andrew Cogliano and Sam Gagner as the only remaining RFAs without a contract.

We can vividly recall the 2004-2005 NHL hockey season. At the time, your ol' pal Wanye had an interest in a local watering hole.

I got into the habit during my days covering the Edmonton Oilers beat of taking the middle of July off because it seemed nothing notable ever happened then. The draft is done. The top free agents are picked over. It is, essentially, the NHL's dog days.

The question of whether Sam Gagner or Gilbert Brule is going to be a better player for the Oilers has come up a few times here at Oilers Nation, including in Lowetide’s excellent (and almost entirely unrelated) article earlier today. A comparison of their performances at the same ages might shed some light on the matter.
