1.) 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.

2.) 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.

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

4.) 21 Apr 2019 15:32:20
Paryanko And Risto trades are gross.

5.) 21 Apr 2019 19:11:44
Change Arizona pick to 2nd on #2 than maybe #1 and 2# is only possible.



07 Apr 2019 13:15:38
Big Changes for the Oilers !!!

EDM: Cousins
ARI: Lucic, Cave(or Gambardella), 2020 1st rp, 2019 4th rp

EDM: Brown, Kapanen, 2019 4th rp
TO: Larsson, Khaira

EDM: Parayko, 2019 2nd rp
STL: Russell, Rattie, 2019 1st rp

*NOTE; If Oilers 1st rp is in the top 5, then STL gives Oilers their 2020 1st rp.

EDM: Ristolainen, 2019 6th rp
BUF: Sekera, Puljujärvi, Bear

Ferland 5yrs @ $3M
Hathaway 2yrs @ $1M
McElhinney 1yr @ $1M
OR Kinkaid 1yr @ $2M


1.) 07 Apr 2019 16:30:10
Absolutely no idea why Arizona would agree to that.
No from oilers.
Hahaha wow easy no from St. Louis. Bruh. Even if top 10.
No from oilers Risto is ass.
Ferland would never sign that he’s going to be seeking more.

2.) 07 Apr 2019 19:01:03
Ristolainen can move the puck though. If that was enough for him I’d definitely do it.

3.) 07 Apr 2019 20:45:56
It's not anywhere near enough for him.

4.) 07 Apr 2019 23:12:36
All those players must really want to must really want to play in Edmonton for those low ball offers.

5.) 07 Apr 2019 23:14:10
Risto just won the nhl masters and that’s definitely not something oilers need. He can move the puck and he’s got a big shot sure but he’s horrendous in his own end. Sekera and bear are both capable puck movers so saying he can move the puck is pretty irrelevant I think.

6.) 08 Apr 2019 01:03:28
Eh, its basically Pulj for Risto tbh. Sekera doesn't have that much value, I mean, 5.5 Million for the next 2 years isn't really a good contract and after all his injuries, its unlikely someone bites on him, even for cheap. I'd say Bear nearly insulates his value, and then you got Pulj+ a little for Risto. After Dahlin, although Risto's +/ - wasn't great, its really not everything you can base the dman on [look at Ron Hainsey. lol]. I'd take him anyday on Toronto for a package of like Kapanen+Zaitsev+Borgman, but j my opinion.

7.) 08 Apr 2019 05:19:36
Getting rid of Zaitsevs contract is the key part in that, does buffalo think Kap and borg (not sure who he is tbh) are good enough to lose one of their “top” dmen and take back a bad contract.

8.) 13 Apr 2019 01:40:35
We don’t need both Ristolainen and Parayko. Larsson is better than Ristolainen. We keep him.



12 Feb 2019 21:23:33
Oilers Trades;

EDM: McElhinney, Hamilton, Ferland, 2019 1st rdp (CAR)

CAR: Draisaitl, Manning, Talbot, 2020 3rd rdp
EDM: Ceci, Dzingel, Smith

OTT: Spooner, Benning, Rieder, 2019 1st round pick (CAR), 2020 2nd rdp if Dzingel re-signs
EDM: Lewis

LA: Lucic, 2019 1st round pick (EDM)
EDM: Brown, Kapanen

TO: Larsson, Yamamoto


1.) 12 Feb 2019 23:06:44
Wow, no from oilers on all of them i'd say. Not trading Drat for hamilton (main piece), #2 is not worth giving up our 1st round pick, same for #3 and the last trade makes an even bigger whole in our lineup if we traded Larsson away (assuming none of these trades happened) . Good ideas but not going to happen.

2.) 12 Feb 2019 23:33:51
If we could get Kapanen and Brown for Larsson is a good trade. Adding a recent first round pick in is too much. Leafs probably don’t want Yamamoto anyway - they have a lot of depth at wing already. Kapanen and Brown are middle six players. I don’t think either is a real long term top line player to play alongside McDavid. Yamamoto might just be the best forward here. We should wait and see what we have first before throwing him in as an extra in any trades.

3.) 13 Feb 2019 04:48:09
Kapanen has the speed and skill to be a great linemate for mcdavid. Just heard that he has the most goals in the whole league for any player without a powerplay goal. If we put him with Connor and some pp time he would be a 30 goal man easily. I would make that trade for sure. We have surrounded the fastest player on the planet with guys that can’t keep up with him. This guy would be able too. Not many have that speed and a lot of the guys with that speed don’t have the skill to finish, they’re more of penalty killers and checkers. And the Ottawa one is a lot of nothing besides the 1st rounder. Doesn’t seem bad for us.

4.) 13 Feb 2019 15:58:22
He’s fast enough to keep up with McDavid. i'm not sure if he has the skills to be a long term partner. But he’s probably better than anyone we’ve been using as McDavid’s wing man so far.

5.) 13 Feb 2019 17:13:43
Why would kap not be able to be a long term winger for mcdavid? What other skills does he need to possess that he already doesn't have.

6.) 14 Feb 2019 00:21:38
You can’t say Yamamoto might be the best player after he really has done nothing for the oilers and hasn’t been lights out in the AHL. I don’t even know if he will have a higher ceiling than Kap either. I personally would love to get Kapanen but I don’t know anyway oilers could get him tbh that works for both teams (and no we aren’t trading Larsson) .

7.) 14 Feb 2019 00:22:56
Why does McDavid need speed on his wings so badly? He needs finishers. And I feel the Oilers can get decent wingers (the least valuable position) without giving up a 20+ minute solid defensive D. I for one am a big Larsson fan and the Oilers can’t afford to lose him.



31 Jan 2019 20:00:32
Oilers Trades !!

Oilers: Ferland, McElhinney, 2019 6th round pick

Hurricanes: Rieder, Talbot, 2019 Conditional 3rd round pick (Pick becomes a 2020 5th round pick if Ferland doesn't re-sign)





23 Jan 2019 23:34:56
GM is Gone ... YAY !!!
Now the Oilers need to Fix the team.

Oilers: Schenn, Parayko, Sundqvist

Blues: Draisaitl, Khaira, Benning

Oilers: Smith, Dzingel

Senators: Spooner, Manning, 2019 Conditional 2nd round pick (only if Dzingel re-signs with Oilers)

Oilers: Nylander
- or - (Kapanen, 2019 3rd round pick)

Leafs: Larsson

Oilers: McElhinney, Ferland, 2019 6th round pick

Hurricanes: Talbot, Rieder, 2020 3rd round pick


1.) 24 Jan 2019 01:23:44
Values are all off.

2.) 24 Jan 2019 03:18:38
Lol brutal trades for every team except the Oilers, esp the Ott one.

3.) 24 Jan 2019 03:29:34
Larson doesn’t get you nylander or kapnien and a pick. He has less value now than he did when he was traded for hall.

4.) 24 Jan 2019 05:27:36
Why does he have less value?

5.) 24 Jan 2019 04:54:25
Really the Leafs wouldn’t trade Kapanen and a pick for Larsson? A stay at home RHD. Exactly what they need. No from the Oilers. And I don’t know if I’d do the Blues trade either. That one might be a no from both.

6.) 24 Jan 2019 06:44:24
I’d do Kapanen and 3rd for Larsson and Kassian. Mainly because of team needs.

7.) 24 Jan 2019 15:27:57
Only way I can see Larson having less value now then in NJ to a GM is that he's a little older now and we know there's nothing more to Adam Larson as when he was traded they're was Hope's his offensive game would get better as well. He is what he is but heure nothing wrong with that. A good top 4 RHD that plays a very shutdown defensive type. Great defensemen just not worth Taylor Hall. He's worth Nylander any day of the week especially with that boat anchor of a contract of his. Edm souldn't trade Larson they should keep him.

8.) 24 Jan 2019 15:28:54
Larsson had more potential when he was traded but he never improved. He has no dynamic side to the game he’s just a simple dman.

9.) 24 Jan 2019 15:37:55
Larsson is a defenseman the leafs need but Kapanen is the perfect fit for McDavid IMO. However I don’t think the oilers can afford to lose him. Chiarelli built the team “heavy” like all the articles are saying about him. It didn’t work out. A deal around Kapanen is what Edmonton should be looking at.

10.) 24 Jan 2019 16:48:55
BoomBoom i like what you said and i agree, and vb so is every dman without much offensive prowess just a simple dman then? Just because he is not dynamic doesn't mean he hasn't improved or gotten better, considering his game was never focussed on offensive since being in the league, he's an adequate top 4 dman who handles the oppositions top players and he's hard to play against. Good dman, like boomboom said, just wasnt worth Hall, he's still very valuable to edmonton.

11.) 24 Jan 2019 22:18:26
What is the opposite of Dynamic? Simple. He’s a stay at home deffensman who plays a simple style. That dosent make him bad.

Oiler Trades;

EDM: McElhinney, Hamilton, Ferland, 2019 1st round pick

CAR: Draisaitl, Manning, Talbot

EDM: Ceci, Dzingel, Smith

OTT: Spooner, Benning, Rieder, 2019 1st round pick (CAR)

EDM: Lewis

LA: Lucic, 2019 1st round pick - OR Yamamoto

EDM: Nylander($3,000,000 retained this year), Brown

TO: Puljujärvi, Larsson


1.) 11 Feb 2019 23:16:02
no from oilers
No from senators
No from kings
No from leafs and can’t retain salary for a single year. Has to be full length of deal and no way they do that.

2.) 12 Feb 2019 07:13:48

3.) 12 Feb 2019 21:35:18
Why would the leafs say no to that? Puljujarvi can develop in to a top line guy and not being on the Oilers would be a good first step. Also playing with Tavares or Matthews would help too. And Larsson is exactly what the leads need. No way from the Oilers on that one IMO.

4.) 13 Feb 2019 05:13:40
I’m not a believer in poolparty as I have said. he may turn into something decent but asking another team to take him and give a far better young player while paying almost half his salary for us just isn’t going to happen. I didn’t say I don’t want it to happen. I said leafs would say no. Nylander makes less than $7 mln I think so Why would they pay $3mln of that when they’re capped out for him to play for us? Makes zero sense.



11 Dec 2018 23:38:10
2 Oilers trades;

Oilers: Backes, DeBrusk, Krug

Bruins: Lucic ($2,000,000 retained), Nurse, Nugent-Hopkins

Oilers: Parayko

Blues: Spooner, Puljujärvi, Benning


1.) 12 Dec 2018 12:43:27
Colts going to love this lol.

2.) 12 Dec 2018 15:55:58
spooner is a bust (potential wise) bottom pairing, Benning is a never was and Pool party has yet to live up to his hype. (almost reminds me of yak, Except yaks first year he scored 30 pts.

So to sum this up (spooner) Hell no, (pool party) No thanks, (bennning) GFYS.

If oliers want Parayko then drais is coming back. If not move along.



06 Feb 2018 17:34:20

Can the Oilers trade Sekera and Russell?

Both are solid D-man. But the Oilers have too many D-men with pricey contracts. Need to shed some cap.

So what teams might interested and what could the Oilers get back in return.

Could also package one of them with another player to get a Right side D-man the Oilers need.


1.) 05 Feb 2018 23:37:29
Acquire wingers, trade nuge for top 4 defencemen



18 Nov 2017 10:53:48
Oilers need to get rid of Lucic and his contract.

** Sorry Lucic, but you are too slow and don't play like you did when you were in your early 20's. Where did the mean and physical streak go?

The Oilers need a skilled player on the LW !!!

So what team would want him and what could the Oilers get in return??


1.) 18 Nov 2017 13:14:29
Nobody! It was a bad signing, a lot of people said it's a bad signing. If you want him gone you will have to buy him out. He has a NMC. So that almost makes him impossible to move.

2.) 18 Nov 2017 14:42:28
back to beantown, and the oilers retain the maximum amount they can, for another shorter bad contract, with boston not reatining anything, and a 6th rounder.

3.) 18 Nov 2017 16:38:18
Was a better signing than Ladd, Eriksson, Backes, Same $$ amount, same term, one year younger. Put up the most points last season.
Eriksson. 24.
Ladd. 31.
Backes. 38
Lucic. 50.

I liked and didn't like the Lucic signing. He is worth $6M and was going to get it as a free agent all day every day. I didn't like the term. I would have liked 4 years myself.
But he brings a lot more to that team and in the dressing room than we know. 50 points isn't really that bad. There's TONS of guys in the league making that much not producing like that.
There are always a lot of bad free agent signings, I wish GM would calm down on the term or these big deals for some of these guys, All these four mentioned. You can argue they are all $6M guys. But not for 6 years when they are all 29 years old! You're just screwing your team in the future.
I like Lucic, I don't mind the $6M, I just don't like the term of the deal.

4.) 18 Nov 2017 21:48:14
Lucic is worth maybe 3 or 4 not 6 million.

5.) 19 Nov 2017 01:39:28
He was offered $6 mill for 4 years from LA to re-sign and he wanted more years. They went to 6.5 or 7 mill I believe but wouldn’t budge on years. They look like they had the right idea now.

6.) 19 Nov 2017 00:08:28
Backas is much cheaper.

7.) 19 Nov 2017 02:28:11
Yes. Term is the thing I don't like about Lucic. He was getting $6M from almost every team in the league as a UFA. I don't like 6 years.
But compared to those other three guys, I take him all day long.
He is actually super important on that team and in the dressing room. If he can put up 50 points. I'll be happy.
Just wish he would play with lots of grit every single game not just every second or third game. Needs to be consistent and I'm happy.

8.) 19 Nov 2017 05:40:17
Backes had less term now I think I remember? Thought every one hose guys were 6 years. Other three were 29 and Lucic one year younger.
Was Backes less term? He's still $6M.

9.) 19 Nov 2017 16:13:27
They were all bad signings. Discussing which is worse is silly. They were all bad. Let's move on.



05 Aug 2017 11:00:20
Seen this on another site - I like it but wanted know what others thought.

Oilers: Mackinnon and Barrie

Avalanche: Draisaitl + (maybe Nurse is the +)

I really like Draisaitl but if he wants too much money then the Oilers have to do what is best for the team.

Mackinnon is a great young center on a good contract and Barrie is the D-man the Oilers are missing.

What are your thoughts??


1.) 07 Aug 2017 22:30:37
Lol. I can promise you, Nurse wouldn't be the +. Even if this was any bit believable. Which it's not.

2.) 08 Aug 2017 02:54:28
Mack is not getting traded for an unproven center.

3.) 08 Aug 2017 08:53:50
Rinkrat, you're hilarious.

4.) 08 Aug 2017 15:52:32
Drais, played on McDavid wing all season. He did not play center. Mackinon played first line center last year and you throw barrie on top of that. Make for a lopsided trade. Did drais perform on wing with the best center in the league yes. Will he perform #1 center duty on his own. The jury is still out. That's all I'm saying.

5.) 08 Aug 2017 21:30:09
Hahahaha. Too funny.

6.) 10 Aug 2017 05:56:08
I wouldn't say he best centre yet gunna be but still a lot to learn.

Well I have read that his family is living in LA and he wants to be closer to them. So getting traded to the Coyotes would have him very close to his family and they can afford him.

Coyotes are really the best trade partner for the Oilers.

Bernier . no thank you. The Oilers might as well just stay with Scrivens.

They need a true #1 goalie. Anderson is older but he plays well and could probably give them 4 yrs.

Oilers need NHL players now . no more potentially good players.

Oilers won't trade for Eller . he called the Oilers an AHL team, he would be bad for the dressing room and this team.

I agree that they need new blood and should get rid of Lowe, MacT and Ekians .

However, they still have weak players and the team needs to make some trades also.
