Milan Lucic Holds All the Cards

It’s generally not a good idea to look for contract value at the very top of the summer free agent list, and it would be a surprise if Milan Lucic were an exception to the rule. This is the best chance he’s ever going to have to cash-in on his formidable reputation, and nobody could…

Goodbye Taylor Hall

Well my worst nightmares are coming true; the Golden Boys of the Rebuild 2.0 era are slowly being traded away, and my hopes of watching an Oilers playoff run in the near future are once again being dashed. Hopefully I’m proven VERY wrong, and Adam Larsson will be exactly what the doctor ordered, but for…

What will Larsson bring to Oilers?

Embed from Getty Images We don’t see Eastern teams very often. Even when they were a perennial Cup contender the Devils were rarely a “must-see” team.

Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli admitted the Edmonton Oilers traded away the best player in today’s Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson deal. “That’s a fair comment, if you look at just what they’ve accomplished so far in the league,” said Chiarelli. “Larsson doesn’t have the same pedigree yet, but I believe in him a lot….

Hall AND Lucic

Embed from Getty Images With Lucic-mania sweeping the city, we are left wondering what the Oilers will do with their forwards now. If the team needed to move one of the $6 million dollar men before the club was linked to Lucic, then what does it have to do in the event they sign him…

Welcome to the PoolParty

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. When Columbus doesn’t draft Jesse Puljujarvi, and a potential second overall falls to fourth, YOU GET UP ON THAT STAGE AND YOU DRAFT LIKE YOU’VE NEVER DRAFTED BEFORE! Do we send Columbus a thank you letter? Bah… forget it.

THE STEVE AUSTINS

If we had a dollar for every time one of Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or Jordan Eberle has been traded in print or on air, we would all be living in houses as nice as Wanye Manor. Even this spring and early summer, rumors surrounding the trio have been rampant. Could it be that Peter…
