    By my logic, I think that he thinks the two guys he brought in would be capable enough to alleviate the workloads currently being cast upon Adam Larsson and Darnell Nurse in the instance where three defensemen who are generally expected to play over 20 minutes per game are all facing significant injuries.

    I think that logic dictates that an athlete consistently facing an elevated workload is at a greater risk of a significant injury. An Adam Larsson injury at this point of the season would be curtains.

    The Wideman trade made zero sense to me. The Strome trade made zero sense to me. Unless something magically happens with Manning, that trade made no sense to me. I get the Petrovic one.

    Bigger fish to fry out there than this guy.

    Let's claim Wideman on waivers just to feel like we won a trade. Wait...is that even winning a trade? Whatever, let's roll with it. Let's fleece another team for once.

    This is part of Oil problems. You guys complain at management, but endorse past players being brought back.

    Because most of the ones we send out are better than the ones brought in.

    But he's not taking minutes from Adam Larsson or Darnell Nurse. He's taking them from Matt Benning and Kevin Gravel.

    Did you actually look at their ice times before making this post?

    Both of their minutes are down from that seven game stretch.

    I'm a little shocked he was in last night given his poor performance on Saturday. Seemed to have a decent game yesterday

    Nice that we gave up a 3rd round pick for a guy who is the only Oiler to have worse CF% than Wideman this season, 37.95%. On top of that he is currently 0-7 in GF/GA and 29.73 in HDCF%. Yeah, he has a terrible PDO but this is not a good hockey player and not someone who has helped in any meaningful way whatsoever. Seriously, the Oilers must have the worst pro scouts in the entire league.

    Look at his 2017-2018 numbers. Not that bad. Same with Manning last year. Both fell off a cliff this year. I guess their thought if they had one was reclaimation project. Spooner i have no ****ing idea.

    Or Chia was trying to get fired. That might make more sense.

    Ex-Oil King and Edmonton native. Petrovic looks like one of the guys our braintrust have probably covered for a while.

    I wouldn't be shocked to see him signed at a lower cap number. Completely prepared for it.

    From what i heard Florida gave up a lot to Vegas so they wouldnt take Petrovic. Obviously that didnt work out condidering who they gave up. The fans probably hated him for that.

    He wasn't an Oil King, fortunately.

    He was RNH's teammate in Red Deer.

    My bad. He's still one of those players that we have had linked to the team for a quite a while. I'll be mildly shocked if the Oilers allow him to walk this summer.

    If they were to resign him then I hope it's for under 1 million so we can bury him in the minors without the cap hit hurting us.

    This team has been far too infatuated with ex Oil kings or guys with an Edmonton connection. That’s part of the problem.

    Brilliant observation!! Mandog will definitely bounce back the rest of this season and next as well.
