    The mason deal is backfiring on them hard with Hellebuycks emergence. Over 4 mil for a backup.

    Id like them to try and work a bigger deal with Carolina and get the 2nd involved. Hard to project what Carolina really wants in return but maybe something like
    Skinner/Teravainen and 2 OA
    for
    Puljujarvi, 10 OA,
    This would lean heavy on Carolina liking the Fin connection, trusting Puljujarvi talent, and wanting to get bigger. I dont think Teravainen is as untouchable then some may think.

    Bonus points if we can move Sekera back and get Faulk in return! Maybe a small add our end!

    Most of the issue is with what people are willing to give up for Faulk, Barrie or whoever.

    Mason only has one more year on his deal. He spends most of it on IR anyways.

    They can easily buy him out or bury him in the minors or on IR. mason is the least of their worries.

    Burying him in the minors saves them 900k. Still costs them 3 mil on the cap. Believe it or not you can’t randomly put players on LTIR. Mason is a problem. Might cost them a good player this summer.

    The Oilers don't have a 10th rounder.

    A buyout would cost them just $1.3M for two years. Easily manageable.

    That’s probably their best option.

    10th overall for a goalie who is turning 36 November of this year who was pulled multiple times in this last series?

    The fork?

    Enstrom comes off the books. Will have to wait and see what Trouba and Morrissey want.

    Trouba and Morrrisey were their top pair so they will be about 10-12 mil to re sign would be my guess.

    Stastny, Matthias, Hendricks, Enstrom and Hutchinson are probably gone, that's $13.25M free right there to go to their RFAs. Lowry, Tanev, Armia and Dano won't command big deals, so that leaves Hellebuyck, Trouba, Morrissey as their main guys. If Trouba decides to go elsewhere (he's never been shy about his interest in leaving Winnipeg) they can get a big haul for him and have more than enough space for the others.

    The real work is next season when Wheeler and Laine are both up.

    Connor and Myers too (although they might trade Myers before then). The Jets are going to have to make some big decisions over the next few seasons, such is the price for success as we know all too well.

    A quick and I mean quick fix to our PP is to sign Vanek. Give him some term. 2-3 years. Guy is unreal in front of the net.

    He also shoots Right.

    Nuge-McDavid-Vanek

    They still have a very very good core that should keep them competitive for a lot of years to come. Organizational depth is a helluva thing.

    Vanek on a one year, $3M deal is such a no brainer for the Oilers that it's gonna really suck when they pass on it.

    I agree. He could also play with 2RW with Drai.

    Guy is a sniper still.

    That's true but my point is that it's always tough to keep a team together AFTER the team has success. That's why it was vital for them to get Schiefele and Ehlers locked up before they and the team had its breakout.
    Had the Oilers taken a chance on signing Drai the previous offseason when all the comparables were getting locked up, they almost certainly would have gotten him for around $6M.

    Yes, the success of last season almost certainly boosted the value of McDavid and Drai's contracts.

    I really can't wrap my head around who would've thought it would was going to be a good one.

    Oh God I feel as dumb as all the Ducks fans who couldn't tell the difference.

    He really doesn't like Talbot, lol.

    But seriously, that is actually part of the reason.
