'Commonplace' or not, ex-players from a 20yr old era have absolutely NO insight on what would be in store for a current pending UFA.

You'd think that the assembled 'old boys club' in Edmonton featured enough ancient-era Oilers to make it work, if that's all it took. (It's not.)

Let's get Hodgson on the phone.


Turris would be a better option in this case. Let 'im know all about Gretzky's opinion on Vancouver... ;)

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

I'm getting tired of the Coilers - how many first overall picks is that? They just keep expecting to be rewarded for losing.


It gets pretty annoying alright. Tambeliline's strategy for success in teh NHL is to be so bad, you get 1st pick every year and then can use that talent to attract other young stars.

In many sports, the Oilers would have been relegated to the "B" division and no longer allowed to play with the big boys, (or poach top prospects) until they were competitive again.

In addition, their desparation has led them to play their young prospects before they are ready leading to multiple injuries of their top players. Boys playing with men is never a good idea.

Edmonton may again compete for a cup but they should be ashamed of how they have had to acquire talent. If they were an American franchise, they would have been sold and moved years ago.

He won't sign here.

The Oilers have likely guaranteed him a top 4 spot to start the season, treated him like a king, got Gretzky and Coffey to kiss his arse and tell him how great he'll be in Edmonton.

He might have wanted to play for the Canucks, and the Canucks might have given him a nice pitch, but at the end of the day the Oilers are saying "sign with us, and you'll be a top 4 d-man in the NHL next season" while the Canucks are saying "sign with us and maybe you can work your way into our starting line up"

Career always trumps sentimentality. He might be a huge Canucks fan, but he's being faced with the choice between a team that will guarantee him ice time in the NHL as soon as next season, and a team that most certainly will not make such a promise. The Oilers smelt blood, that's why they got Gretz to call. That call probably sealed the deal. Could you imagine being a 22 year old and getting that call?

Bill Sweatt is nothing spectacular, and he did get a call up last season. Although it wasn't much of one.

I definitely wish we still had Lee in our system. What's the deal there? We traded his rights to Ottawa and then he "retired" to pursue a business endeavor? I was in the Canucks Outlet Store the other day and they had one of his away Game Worn jerseys there for sale. I was tempted to pick it up, it had some pretty decent wear on it.


He looks like he could be an alright 3rd liner here though.

But yeah, Lee wasn't re-signed then he went off to Ottawa but resigned for business. I don't know if he understands Business because its hard it is to make over 500K in business; where he had the chance in hockey.

If he signs with Edmonton, it will also be why he likely ends up on the LTIR within the first 2 months. They have no depth and he is not a big body. They will expcet him to be their Shea Weber and the kid has never played against grown men in an 82 game schedule.

Both Hall and RNH have seen some pretty serious injuries because they are thrust into leading roles on the Oilers before they are mature and strong enough to handle the size and speed of the league.

I see the same scenario for Schultz if he chooses guaranteed top 4 minutes over the opportunity to work his way into that position.

HIs agent will likely urge him to go where he gets the most exposure as that will mean a bigger contract when he becomes a UFA in 3 years.

IF he's as good as everyone seems to think, he should show some humility and sign with the team that will best prepare him for a long and successful career. Not a cheap and easy ride to the top where he may succeed but he also may fail.

You are so full of crap, you don't know what your talking about. Of Course Gillis will not use any words that will make it sound like will not have a top 4 spot. Definelty not ""sign with us and maybe you can work your way into our starting line up""

Gilli's upsell tactic is probably.

We "cannot gaurantee you on the powerplay unit, nor can we gaurantee you top 2 defencemen, because it's something we don't garuantee to any player. Our players earn their spot on the team." He can then go on and say, how Some average joe like Alex Burrows made his way up into a top line winger.

He wil then go on proceeding to say. "Do you want to win.?"
Schultz will answer "yes"
Gillis then say, well if winning means, someone else will get a little more ice time then you. then you shouldn't have a problem with it? because it helps the team win. right?
Shultz will of course say "yes"

MIke Gillis probably knows we don't have 3 first overall picks, he knows, exactly what OIlers will say to convince to join the team. MIke Gillis also is fully prepared to make the best sales pitch to Justin Shultz without using any words that suggests he has no chance at being on top power play unit, or top 2 line. That being said, MIke Gillis would have told him probably more then what he should have, in terms of Gillis building his hockey team, commitment to win, etc etc. I trust Gillis will say the best things possible.

If you ask me, Oilers right now is probably desperate because somehow they know they might not sign him, so they get Coffey and Gretzky to call him, which is f ing hilarious if you ask me. If anythings, PIttsburgh could have gotten Crosby or Malkin to give him a call. Funny as hell. This is more of desperation move by the epic failure of the Oilers organization.

I trust Gillis in this. Wether we sign him or not, Gillis did his best.

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.

 

1 Pavel Bure

2 Markus Naslund

3 Nathan Mackkinon

4 Jonathan Drouin.

5 Jonathan Tavares

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein

Just a quick remark. Hall and RNH where in the range of 18 and 19 years old, and still developing when their injuries occurred. Schultz will be 22 at the start of next season and should be physically mature (or atleast more so than Hall and RNH) and therefor less susceptible to injury.

Note: I don't mean to mix physically mature with skillfully developed though. Seeing as how this will be his first year in the NHL, that will take some time.

It's easy to look good on a number 1 team. It's harder to look good on a losing team.

Just look at Tanev. The guy came from obscurity, and we turned him into a top 6 defenceman.
