The Offical Edmonton Oilers Thread!

Recommended Posts

Both of those trades would be great for Edmonton, but probably not realistic. hmm, Maybe the second one, though I think Phoenix is pretty high on Hanzal.

 

I don't see St. Louis giving Backes or Oshie back as part of that first deal. Maybe Berglund or Perron?

 

I would bet anything that if they choose to trade a Hall/Yakupov, the return would be more then we expect. I think the bidding will go through the roof.

This is a great conversation and great speculation, unfortunately in this day of UFA, RFA, salary caps, hockey trades like this are very rare..Hopefully it can happen , as its fun to see as fans..But its tough.

Bullied? Sounds like the brother was just trying to steer his brother on the correct path of life.

don't see STL or PHX making either of those trades.

zach was referring to backes or oshie, I don't think he was offhandedly dismissing bergy/perron. good calls by all.

7 year extension for RNH.

 

7 years and $42 million, that's a pretty reasonable deal. Same cap hit as Hall and Eberle.

The two smartest betters I follow on twitter have picked Edmonton on their futures. For one guy, it is his only play (to win the Stanley Cup) - for the other, he picked the Rangers in the East and Oilers in the West.

MDG what are you talking about. I never picked anyone to win the Cup yet.

Are you telling me smart betters are picking Edmonton to win the Cup *this* year?

 

No, he said the two smartest that he follows.

Yes! I know, surprised me too. But the one guy in particular is friggin ridiculous about these futures, and hockey might be his best sport. Obviously he didn't call them favourites, but took them around 35:1 I believe.

unrelated to the RNH signing and Danny's story, I was actually planning on bumping this thread to say that this is the year I think the Oilers will finally be competing for, and probably making the playoffs.

 

 

All the kids are a year older, which helps. Perron and Ference were excellent pickups. But the big X factor is Dallas Eakins. I think he is the first coach in recent memory who will actually demand accountability from a few guys who desperately need accountability. I love what he did with the young kids on the Marlies, and I think he was the perfect coach to bring into this dressing room at this time.

How do you feel about their goaltending? :)

Right now I can get Edmonton at 34:1 on the Atlantic version of pro-line. Might drop a bit.

 

They have some above-market odds on other things too I'm looking at:

 

Rangers to win the East at 15:1, Stars to win the West at 26:1. In the NFL, you can get Seattle to win the Conference at 4 and Super Bowl at 7.

I m not sure they are quite ready, what do you guys think they have done to improve the defense?

Nothing...I'm really at a loss why anyone thinks they're a great bet.
