U can read my name to get your answer. Crazy if oel ends up in edmonton tho. All hail in-the-know 93oilers.
I get want you are saying about the Lucic trade but even the insider miss the details of trades . Trade discussions are fluid and can change quickly . He had the 2 bigger pieces right . If you read the recent posting it has RNH going the other way which I can not see happening But there a lot of smoke on OEL to Edmonton
Ekman-Larsson: "Just bought a house in Västerås! Heading back to Sweden."
Everyone: "Uh, shit, Ollie, no, that's in Västlås. You done messed up."
If y'all don't like puns, Swedish or otherwise, ignore my last two posts with prejudice.
Speaking about winning. Sweep your own doorstep first.
Holland said he would not make a trade until the playoffs are done .
Hope you are right.
Many players do.
The coach RT. I believe from what I have heard that RT and OEL do not get along. I also believe under the right circumstances OEL would jump at the chance to leave Arizona. He will have financial security no matter where he wants to play.
OEL likes luxury. I think he has owned two homes in Phoenix and both are BEAUTIFUL.
They could make a movie about this.
That's his old house. He has a newer "nicer" one in Scottsdale, near the Fashion Square Mall I believe.
The OP has you suckered in hook, line and sinker.
Just when you thought it could not get better we get a listing on teh house he bought. Jeez only in Edmonton.
He was asked if he felt Klefbom + Russell + our 1st could land OEL. He said something like “I think the oilers could get in on OEL, but my belief is Arizona doesn’t want to spend money, they'll take cap hit but not dollars, figure out what I’m saying, wink wink nudge nudge (yes he literally said wink wink nudge nudge). And they’d want picks and prospects”. He usually says cryptic shit like that on his show.
The Oiler that has a high cap hit with very little salary is Russell and obviously we’d include our first. I have no idea what prospect(s) we’d have to add to make the value there for Arizona. But replacing OEL’s 54 mill with Russell’s 1.5 mill solves your owners financial burden. If we were to add in someone like chiasson at another 2.15 for one year, the combined cap hits would be 6.15 compared to OEL’s 8.25, but just 3.65 salary compared to 54. On a player value basis, this is a horrible return for OEL. But if the goal for your owner is to save money and get picks and prospects, this sort of deal would would provide that. And not many teams are going to be able to take on that salary without sending it back.
Honestly even better. Russell, next year’s 1st and either Broberg or Bouchard and I’m sold.
Yeah you’d think it would have to be Bouchard or Broberg in an ideal straight value scenario. I wonder if Holland pushes for Samorukov instead though and holds firm because of the financial pressure to the owner.
A man can dream.
As others have said, more likely Samoroukov+ or Lavoie, Benson, etc.... a cheap forward that can step in and take yet another roster spot with a cheap ELC.
Holland should be drawn and quartered in Churchill Square if that deal got made.
Armstrong officially got hired today so they can consummate this trade now.
How about Russell (cap purposes), Chiasson (cap purposes), Bouchard, 2021 1st for OEL?
Then flip Nurse + 14 for Huberdeau.
Then hoist cup in 2021.
I would make that trade as a Coyotes fan, yes.
