Edmonton Oilers Rumours


Use our rumours form to send us nhl trade rumors.

(single word yields best result)

24 Apr 2019 12:30:38
Oilers: Nugent-Hopkins

Jets: trouba

Ryan really stepped up this year , out up 69p playing with no good player would prob be a 75-85p Guy on jets second line

Oilers: Larsson


24 Apr 2019 14:17:08
I don't think Trouba would extend in Edmonton, but if he would, I think you would have a good basis for a possible trade.

24 Apr 2019 14:36:08
RNH would be too expensive for the Jets when he becomes a UFA in 3 years and the Oilers are in the same boat with Trouba next season. I believe that Trouba will bring a better return from teams out east at the draft.

24 Apr 2019 15:33:03
Question, marcus and island, why do you want to trade Trouba so badly? You hype him as a young top pairing 50 point rhd so why wouldn't you want to keep him! Trade off buff or myers or whoever to keep Trouba, wouldn't that be better for jets? Or is it because you guys think he's going to demand way too much for a contract.

24 Apr 2019 07:49:54
Let’s ignore the cap for a bit. Would this make sense for the leafs and the oilers?

Oilers: Mcdavid

Leafs: Matthews, Nylander and 4 first rounds picks (Years 2020-23)

24 Apr 2019 13:44:09
No not at all oilers can keep McDavid.

24 Apr 2019 14:26:23
I’d like to keep mcdavid to rather than take these guys, atleast mcdavid knows how to win a playoffs series ;) let alone have more assists than Matthews has points lmao.

24 Apr 2019 14:38:52
Every team in the NHL would want a shot at McD, especially the Leafs, but adding the four 1st round picks is too much.

24 Apr 2019 15:33:53
4 first rounds defs too much haha.

24 Apr 2019 05:24:44
Oilers: Lucic (6 m x 4 yrs) + 1 st rd
Rangers: Shattenkirk: (6.65 x 2 yrs) Retaining $650,000

Oilers: Puljujarvi
Devils: Zacha

Oilers: Russel (4 m x 2 yrs)
Sens: Z. Smith (3.25 m x 2 yrs)

Oilers: Benning (2 m x 1 yr)
Leafs: Brown (2 m x 1) .
If the leafs were offered Benning (5 goals) + Khaira for Brown (8 goals), then their manager is delusional.

Free Agent: Zuccarelo (5 m x 3 yrs) Or Nyquist
Mrazek (2.5 m x 2 yrs)
Chaison (2 m x 2 yrs)
Zacha (3 m x 3 yrs)
Khaira (1 m x 1 yr)

1.5 m in buyouts

Drai - McDavid- Kassian (23 m)
Zuccarelo - RNH - Brown (13 m)
Smith- Zacha - Chaison (8 m)
Khaira - Cave - Garner (6 m)
Brodziak (1 m)

Klefbom- Larson (8 m)
Nurse - Shattenkirk (9 m)
Sekera - Jones (6 m)
Gravel (1 m)

Koskinen (4.5 m)
Mrazek (2.5 m)

24 Apr 2019 06:40:45
Brutal for NYR & NJ. Sens trade ain't bad tbh, and Leafs apparently already said no to the Benning for Brown swap

24 Apr 2019 11:13:30
Zack smith to the oil for a 7th, keep russell.

24 Apr 2019 13:45:10
I like the Rangers trade.

23 Apr 2019 22:01:42
EDM: Lucic
CGY: Neal

23 Apr 2019 22:09:57
heck to the yaaaa, realistically no from calgary but they do need some grit and muscle and that is what Frolik (i coukd be wrong i forget who said it) but somebody on the flames roster recently said they need that if they ever want to advance in the playoffs. I don't believe calgary looks at looch but i do think they get a big body.

23 Apr 2019 22:26:27
Think Flames take a run at bringing back Ferland? Not sure where they are at salary.? Or Simmonds?
They could use some more grit, but Lucic is like Alzner. the game has passed those guys by. Not sure what is wrong with Neil.

23 Apr 2019 23:48:29
No from flames.

24 Apr 2019 01:24:47
Im sure the flames locker room hates big looch hahah but there are options. Simmonds is a no, he declined to go to Calgary because his wife was in labor i believe but having a baby will not make him move. Better options: Micheal Ferland, Ryan Reaves, Matt Martin. I don't see why they didn't call up Anthony Peluso or Josh Healey.

24 Apr 2019 11:16:56
probably because they're too slow.

23 Apr 2019 21:43:30
Oilers- 5th round

Penguins- Jarry

Hes mainly played in the AHL and pitt was currently using DeSmith as back up. Not sure if pens want to part with him but I think he can potentially be the back up in edmonton.

Unless oilers choose to get an experienced NHL back up.

23 Apr 2019 22:17:28
I think oil should go for more experienced back up.

24 Apr 2019 01:55:59
Oilers need a starter.

24 Apr 2019 05:30:46
Hahahaha so true a starter 😂.

23 Apr 2019 01:02:41

- Phil Kessel 82GP 27G 55A 82Pts -19+/-

Tampa Bay Lightning Projected Lines 2019/20

Ondrej Palat - Steven Stamkos - Nikita Kucherov
Yanni Gourde - Brayden Point - Phil Kessel
Cedric Paquette - Carter Verhaeghe - Mathieu Joseph
Andy Andreoff - Tyler Johnson - J.T. Miller

Victor Hedman - Jacob Trouba
Ryan McDonagh - Callan Foote
Cameron Gaunce - Ben Thomas

- Anton Stralman 4.50M
- Braydon Coburn 3.70M
- Dan Girardi 3M
- Jan Rutta 2.25M
- Adam Erne 800K
- Danick Martel 715K

(Tampa frees up 14,965,000M)


Tampa then has enough to resign Brayden Point, Cedric Paquette & Jacob Trouba.

What do you guys think...

23 Apr 2019 05:38:37
I think they’ll be picking 23rd if I’m not mistaken. Either way not enough for Trouba. Also Pittsburg trade might be close if Callahan wasn’t in it.

23 Apr 2019 13:24:29
Kessels cap hit is 6.8 mil as 1.2 million was retained by Toronto. Not even going to comment on the trades.

23 Apr 2019 14:29:29
Yup, you would need to take out some of the quantity and add a little quality to get into the Trouba game.

23 Apr 2019 14:51:35
If the Jets resign Myers than I see Trouba being traded at the draft, but not for this poor TB package. Trouba will get a better return than this one. Detroit, Philly, Florida, NYR and the Leafs are only 5 teams that would love and need a player like him.

23 Apr 2019 19:12:21
Now way Pittsburg adds 3.25 million in salary, they barely under the cap next year.

23 Apr 2019 19:22:32
This poor TB package? Sorry, but you clearly have seen neither Cirelli nor Cernak play. Both are almost guaranteed to stay, imo, very important contributors and esp important to TB because they are cheap for now. No way TB does that Trouba deal.
PIT deal is bad as well, no way we trade Sergachev.

With a big exodus on D already (Stralman, Coburn, Rutta, etc. ) why would TB trade it's two young, cheap and good D in Cernak and Sergachev? Makes no sense at all.

23 Apr 2019 00:14:23
Tampa Bay Lightning :
(C) Anthony Cirelli
(2019) 31st Overall Selection
(D) Erik Cernak
Winnipeg Jets :
• (D) Jacob Trouba (RFA)

Stats :

- (C) Anthony Cirelli 82GP 19G 20A 39Pts 25+/-
- (RHD) Erik Cernak 58GP 5G 11A 16Pts 25+/-
- (RHD) Jacob Trouba 82GP 8G 42A 50Pts 8+/-

Tampa Bay Lighting Defence Pairings -

Victor Hedman - Jacob Trouba
Ryan McDonagh - Callan Foote
Mikhail Sergachev - Jan Rutta

- or -

If Trouba was willing to sign with Tampa via verbal agreement.

TB -
(LHD) Mikhail Sergachev
(RHD) Jacob Trouba

23 Apr 2019 14:48:09
The Sergachev one is closer. It would still require a bit of an add from Tampa, unless they are the only one bidding, which is doubtful.

23 Apr 2019 14:54:46
As much as I like Sergachev's upside he still makes a lot of rookie mistakes. Tampa would have to throw in a #1 draft pick.

22 Apr 2019 11:21:37
Anaheim Ducks 
• (RW) Jakob Silfverberg
• (RHD) Josh Manson
Edmonton Oilers
• (C) Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

(Ducks get a player who can produce more scoring touch and Oilers get a physical RHD & a needed Winger)

Toronto Maple Leafs
• (RW) William Nylander
Edmonton Oilers
• (RHD) Adam Larsson

(Both players involved in the trade slumped hard this year but can really step it up with a change of scenery. Willy can be slotted beside McDavid & Larsson can be a top pair with Rielly. Meets both needs of both teams)

Winnipeg Jets
• (LW) Mathieu Perreault
Edmonton Oilers
• (LHD) Kris Russell

(Positional needs for both teams, very very similar contracts aswell, both 2 years around 4M)

Edmonton Oilers Projected Lines

Mathieu Perreault - Connor McDavid - William Nylander
Tyler Benson - Leon Draisaitl - Jakob Silfverberg
Milan Lucic - Jujhar Khaira - Jesse Puljujärvi
Ty Rattie - Sam Gagner - Zach Kassian

Darnell Nurse - Josh Manson
Oscar Klefbom - Ethan Bear
Andrej Sekera - Matt Benning

I gave my reasons behind them, please give me your feedback, i try to be as fair and realistic as possible. :)

22 Apr 2019 14:36:04
The Jets would be moving Perreault to clear cap space. So, taking back dead cap isn't an option. It would have to be Perreault for a pick or prospect.

22 Apr 2019 15:31:21
Perreault may be dealt to get draft choice. Russell who is not a great d-man and would be hard pressed to make the Jets starting roster, would not be a fair return for a player that as you show in your projected lineup, would be the Oilers #1 winger. Perreault is worth at least a 3rd round pick, but may be part of a package that could include Trouba.

22 Apr 2019 15:46:09
Thatll be a no from the ducks, but oilers cannot take back all that salary. Oilers can't take back the extra salary. makes sense if jets needed a lhd, but they also need cap space so no from jets.

22 Apr 2019 17:52:11
Leafs don’t touch Nylander for Larsson one bad season doesen't decrease his value to the leafs management.

22 Apr 2019 22:07:20
I agree rnh is worth more than either player, but both together is worth more than him.

I don't think either team does nylander for Larsson. Both players mean more to current team than to others.

I think Oilers are stuck with Russell. Maybe trade him and a 3rd to a team looking for defense depth with cap room.

23 Apr 2019 09:23:38
Vbbb you say 1 bad season doesn't decrease Nylander's season but act like 1 bad season decreases Larsson's value. I see the biased in you.

23 Apr 2019 19:16:28
What? Larsson had a bad season to me it seems like an average season. Last season there is no way the leafs would trade Nylander for Larsson and nothing has changed.

21 Apr 2019 23:21:37
Lol what Nuge for Silverburg? Hate the oilers because of there cocky fan base but omg that is terrible.

22 Apr 2019 01:00:37
No from leafs
Absolutely huge no from oilers that’s beyond bad
Smith was on waivers
Demers meh

Both signings no thanks.

22 Apr 2019 00:39:23
1. Oilers won't trade Larsson right now even though he was inconsistent this season, he is their best defenceman that plays on the right side. If they trade a defenceman it will most definitely be somebody that plays on the left side.

2. Easy no from Oilers. RHN >> Silfverberg imo. RHN scored 28 goals and got 69 points basically by himself as he lead his own line. Next season if Oilers add more support for him he can easily become a 30+ goal 70+ point centre in the NHL imo. Meanwhile Silfverberg got 43 points and never got more than 49 points in his career.

3. Don't see Oilers trading Sekera or many teams trading for him with his recent injuries. Oilers will hold on to him at least until the next NHL Trade Deadline to maximize his value.

4. Tyler Benson isn't going to be playing first line next year lol. Could even see him starting next season in the AHL, matters if Oilers retain Chiasson/ Rattie and get a replacement for Reider. Not even going to say anything about Bouchard playing top 2 next season lol.

21 Apr 2019 22:23:34
Edmonton: Jesse Puljujarvi And Adam Larsson

Buffalo: Rasmus Ristolainen

Edmonton- With Rasmus Ristolainen on the market Edmonton should be jumping on him. A top pairing Elite PP presence. Risto while isn't known to be a stud defensively he has proven to be able to play over 30 min a night. With a lesser role he'd be much more effective on Edmonton he'd be the 1D but wouldn't play as much.

Buffalo- Dahlin is the most hyped defensive prospect ever and Risto right now is overshadowing him on the depth chart there is no need having two top pairing offensive deffensman when they have no defensive dman especially now since Montour brings another offensive presence. Larsson fills the role on the top pairing with Dahlin perfectly. Jesse Puljujarvi bring a potential top 6 presence to the Sabres a change of scenery could benefit him drastically.

22 Apr 2019 00:40:31
I don't follow the Sabres but why is Risto overshadowing Dahlin on the depth chart? Doesn't Dahlin play on the left side while Risto plays on the right?

22 Apr 2019 01:01:35
Risto is basically younger Faulk (lol) and we know how you feel about him so I’m going to say no thanks from oilers. And in general no from oil, Risto was the masters winner this year oilers do not need that.

21 Apr 2019 23:54:49
Not bad tbh.

22 Apr 2019 15:49:35
1. Risto is not a younger Faulk Risto is one of the most physical deffensman in the nhl Risto is also better defensively but unlike Faulk he is the go to guy on the Sabres and has one of the highest TOIs in the NHL if you decrease his ice time I’m sure his defensive stats would look much better

2. Risto over shadows him because Risto is on the top PP where as Dahlin is on the second ( they use 1 dman on the PP)

21 Apr 2019 05:13:28
All amazing trades from a flames POV 🤔.

21 Apr 2019 10:55:03
So calgary gives up no quality vbb? For the main trades i see them giving up a top 4 lhd for a bottom 6 forward + pick. Top 6 c + top 6 rhd + pick for a top 2/4 defencemen with locker room issues. Two a+ prospects, not 30th overall but 28th overall pick for a top 6 c. Get real bud, if it doesn't favor the leafs it doesn't please you i guess

21 Apr 2019 14:50:10
One I can see your a huge flames fan Sean.
So I’ll break down some of the less biased things.
1) I actually don’t like subban but he is worth more than a middle 6 C ( so can be an ok top 6 great 3rd line ) a 3rd pair D and a 3rd round draft choice.
2) you say Dube is an A+ prospect is in itself bad. He is a B+ at best. Either way I don’t see both teams making that trade.
3) isn’t actually that bad but I’m no gm and don’t know what kappy will sign for
4)standard cap dump trade so again could be a yes or no
5) same as the last one but with a better contract to loose
6) this one is more about fit then value as Jankowski is good but Habs are actually full at the C position ( Ik big surprise ) and he would be rather taking up a spot for KK or be playing on the 4th line.

21 Apr 2019 15:30:38
This is an equivalent to the trades you proposed.

CGY: Girodano

Nsh: Turris, Fabbro And 3rd round pick.

CGY: Mathew Tkachuk? ( not sure who the equivalent to Zib is on Calgary )

NYR: Lias Anderson And Two 2nds. Dube is only worth a 2nd.

Kappanen will not be traded for Bodie

And it’ll take a lot more to dump Neal.

21 Apr 2019 01:58:57
Fixing the Oilers.

EDM: Kapanen, Brown
TO: Larsson, Khaira

EDM: Grabner, 2019 1st rp (14)
ARI: Lucic, 2019 1st rp (8), Cave/Gambardella

EDM: Ristolainen
BUF: Benning, Grabner, 2019 2nd rp

EDM: Pageau, 2019 2nd rp
OTT: Sekera, Puljujärvi

EDM: Parayko, 2020 5th rp
STL: Yamamoto, Russell

EDM: 6th rp
Any Team: Manning

Ferland 5yrs @ $5M
Hathaway 1yr @ $1.1M
Pirri 1yr @ $0.9M
McElhinney 2yrs @ $1.5M

21 Apr 2019 10:56:14
5 mil for ferland is way too much, i'd say 3.75m for 3yr. Definitely not 5 x 5. Calgary will resign Hathaway, McEhlinney gets more aswell.

21 Apr 2019 10:57:53
Yamamoto and russell for parayko and a pick? Lool how does st louis add? Wtf no from edmonton, arizona, buffalo, ottawa, st louis.

21 Apr 2019 14:52:54
I have to say trade number 3 is so bad I thought this was a troll trade.

21 Apr 2019 15:32:20
Paryanko And Risto trades are gross.

21 Apr 2019 19:11:44
Change Arizona pick to 2nd on #2 than maybe #1 and 2# is only possible.

21 Apr 2019 01:55:03
Leafs: Kadri

Oil: Larsson

From an article. How’s the value here.

21 Apr 2019 05:14:05
It’s not bad imo.

21 Apr 2019 13:58:49
Edmonton has too many centers i'd say a package starting with Kapanen maybe? Larsson for Kapanen + Brown?

21 Apr 2019 14:19:04
Leafs would trade Kapanen for a better Dman Larsson is not that valuable.

21 Apr 2019 21:46:04
He would be the best rhd that leafs have.

21 Apr 2019 22:23:09
Ok thrasher guy with a career high of 44 points is way more valuable than Larsson .

21 Apr 2019 22:24:24
Trasher, larsson is a very good top 4 rhd. he's the shutdown dman that the leafs need, would be your 2nd best defencemen

20 Apr 2019 02:30:12
Edmonton: Milian Lucic And 8th overall

Rangers: Future Considerations

Rangers get another top 10 pick and can afford to take Lucics salary as they are in a rebuild.

Oilers dump that toxic contract and mark the beginning to a brighter future.

Obviously Edmonton fans will disagree with the magnitude of his negative value but what do you guys think?

20 Apr 2019 12:05:40
Oilers fans realize it’s an anchor of a contrat; but they also know that they can’t afford to trade the pick as they need more high end talent in the pipeline (especially with players on affordable ELC’s) .

They need one of those cap-hit-free buyouts (unfortunately that would probably only come from a lockout), or for Lucic to retire or something or to find a way to put him on LTIR (maybe he gave Hossa a high five and contracted his diaper rash) .

20 Apr 2019 14:05:22
Yah a LTIR excuse would definitely be ideal.

20 Apr 2019 16:58:22
The Oilers give up too much to dump Lucic's contract.

20 Apr 2019 18:48:11
Future considerations lmao this is the nhl not a bum league.

20 Apr 2019 21:29:23
What? Players have been traded for future considerations hundreds of times?

20 Apr 2019 22:36:04
if the Oilers asked for a 7th in return the deal would be off the table right? lol.

20 Apr 2019 22:37:47
or is the future considerations belesky.

21 Apr 2019 17:06:02
Sorry vb I’ll put it this way, I don’t think a player with that bad of contract like Lucics can just be traded for future considerations alone, and the fact oil trading a top 10 pick like I don’t thunk the league would allow that haha.

19 Apr 2019 05:55:02
I think this might be fair
To Pit- kailer Yamamoto, 2019 1st, 2020 2nd, Milan lucic
To EDM - Phil kessel
No retention, pits sheds 750,000 cap roughly gets a pick In the first round which they don't have and lucic who could protect Crosby etc.
Maybe I'm way off but I think it works

19 Apr 2019 06:11:16
You’re way off lol.

19 Apr 2019 16:12:59
Basically Yamamoto for kessel? Cause the draft picks would be for taking lucic. And pens would be looking for cap space, not taking on an anchor contract. Sorry, not well thought out at all.

19 Apr 2019 21:00:56
Pittsburgh has a 1st round pick?

21 Apr 2019 02:00:16
For Edmonton they are in a rebuild even though they have 2 of the Top forwards in the NHL.
Kessel is not a good move where they are at, I would Trade McDavid to start the rebuild properly, they need a lot and the only way to do that without wasting McDavids years is to Trade McDavid and they would get a ton for him.

19 Apr 2019 05:22:59
Crazy trade:

Pens create more cap space this way (almost 5 million) .
Also, Pens haven’t had any 1st round picks in a few seasons and no 1st round this year. Finally, Pens could use some toughness.

Oilers need a goal scorer and 3 line Centre.

Oilers: Lucic + Yamamoto or Puljujarvi + Bear or Jones + 2019 1st round pick

Pens: Kessel + Bjugstad.

16 Apr 2019 13:37:31
EDM - 2019 1st (8th), Puljujarvi
MON - 2019 1st (15th), Drouin

Thoughts on the cost to move up and if that’s a deal Montreal would be interested in.
Also I’m aware the Oil would need to drop cap. Might have to be in another trade or potentially added to this one.

16 Apr 2019 15:25:37
I don't think this is close for MTL to consider. Pul just doesn't have enough value to be brought into a deal like this to level it out. Maybe if you take out Drouin and go for someone else.

16 Apr 2019 19:46:42
It is interesting but because of pool party's lack of establishment in the league i could see montreal saying no.

16 Apr 2019 20:42:13
What if Byram or Broberg are still there at 8? Also I think GM’s might value Puljujarvi more than we do. I understand that he’s a gamble but he still has high potential.

17 Apr 2019 02:14:50
If by ram is still there at 8th then that makes it closer but habs might be able to get Broberg at 15th. Drouin played bad for 20 games this year. Pulujarvi hasn't done anything in 3 years. I think the habs would still want more.

It might not be the right move for Montreal and may be too much. But I was looking and in the past the price to move up in the draft is fairly expensive. To move up 3-5 spots in the late 20’s it’s usually a 3rd. To move up 5-7 spots in the early 20’s- mid teens it’s an early second. So I’m thinking to move up 7 spots from mid teens to top 10 it would be at least a late first.
It all depends if Montreal wants to move on from Drouin or not I’d think. Also what GM’s are seeing in the draft.

Leafs already said no to that deal, they have more interest in Khaira.

15 Apr 2019 20:55:20
I keep hearing that the leafs are interested in khaira and I don't know why. who would the leafs take out of their line up to add that plug?

15 Apr 2019 21:10:57
Hahahaha these are good.

Canucks trade: Tanev, Leivo

Oilers trade: Benning, Lucic, 1st round pick (8th overall)

Canucks get #8 and #10

13 Apr 2019 19:27:41
That’s interesting.

13 Apr 2019 19:36:26
Oilers don't include benning then or oilers do not make that.

13 Apr 2019 20:32:01
Honestly, that’s pretty good. The Canucks have enough top 6 defensemen though so maybe take out Benning and Leivo, make it just Tanev for Lucic and the 1st? Or maybe keep Leivo in, idk.

13 Apr 2019 21:12:35
I do not understand. Top 6 defensemen? But there are only six. How can there be a top 6 or a bottom 6?

13 Apr 2019 23:20:18
Top six as in the 3rd pairing, just as top four means the second pairing and top 2 refers to the first pairing. I don’t know why you’re on a hockey site if you don’t even understand basic terminology like that.

14 Apr 2019 02:16:13
Zamboni is English your first language.

14 Apr 2019 14:19:53
That’s not even enough to dump Lucic. Lucic carry’s the biggest negative value in the game.

15 Apr 2019 15:03:57
Vertius you don't have to be rude like that he was just asking a question maybe he sees he differently and that's fine. Try to keep it positive.

15 Apr 2019 14:59:57
It doesn’t not matter Mr. McSmartyPants if English is my first language. No. Saying Top 6 defenseman is like saying top 12 forward. It does not make sense. Top means the best, a few select players off the entire team. Saying top 6 means the best 6, which is all the defensemen on the team. Of course he is top 6. All defensemen playing on the team are top 6, yes. He does not make sense. I understand English very good.

15 Apr 2019 21:56:28
You understand very good yes.

16 Apr 2019 13:21:45
Veritus, I have been following hockey since 1970 and never have I heard of the defense being refered to as top 6.
Also as a long suffering Canucks, who are these "Top 6" defensemen that you say the Canucks have?

16 Apr 2019 15:40:02
I agree with Zamboni. never heard of the term top 6 when it comes to defensive lines. always referenced pairings. Also, English may not be his first language, but we understand everything he is discussing and it is a hell of a lot better than my second language. I believe he has mentioned he is in Europe but follows the NHL and primarily the Oilers.

16 Apr 2019 20:53:25
Just like you can understand what he’s saying, he can understand what he meant by top 6 D. Bit of a weird term but I’ve definitely heard it. Let it slide man.

16 Apr 2019 23:55:43
Jeez, should I draw a picture for you all?

D1-D2 = Top 2 defenseman/ pairing 1
D3-D4 = Top 4 defenseman/ pairing 2
D5-D6 = Top 6 Defenseman/ pairing 3

I mean come on, this really isn’t that hard. Instead of talking about ‘how long you’ve been following hockey’ for Renidrag or ‘how good your English is’ Zamboni - which I hate to break it to you, isn’t good at all - you both should try actually listening to some games cause clearly you don’t know as much as you think you do if you don’t even know basic terms like that.

17 Apr 2019 08:19:28
My 2 cents, you could say top 6 defenseman because that means he's in the lineup. He could of said 7th defenseman would mean watching from the press box most nights waiting for injuries.

Idk why you even post stuff like this. like stop.

13 Apr 2019 18:42:24
What's wrong with my post?

13 Apr 2019 19:38:51
Because how are oilers suppose to support Browns contract which is a little more than Benning's AND take on that bad one of zaitsev which oilers have absolutely no purpose for acquiring him or his contract and the fact he is even include din this trade that's why its dumb and you're literally the biggest idiot ever and you have not realized it like its embarassing your posts this one is horrible you homer.

13 Apr 2019 19:39:56
Notdeluaional don’t even bother explaining he’s still not going to understand why this is a brutal post.
