    Good low-risk signing. He's been solid so far and has a bomb from the point. If Kris Russell is not ready for season opener I think he would be a good fit with Bouchard on the 3rd pairing.

    Kind of unrelated, but I think Chiarelli should get some credit for this offseason. We had a great draft - it's still early, yes, but I can't imagine a better fit than Bouchard here, and McLoed looks like a steal at 40. I think Yawney and Viveiros were great additions to the coaching staff (Glutzan = meh), and Brodziak and Rieder were underrated signings. Nurse's new deal is also great, and Strome's is reasonable as well.

    Do you think we see Chiasson get a contract next?

    Edit: Mods, feel free to merge this with the Garrison PTO thread. Not sure if this should be separate.

    I think Chaisson will be next....at League minimum.
    The team is at 46 contracts (47 with Chiasson) and having Chiasson and Garrison for a combined total of $1.3M is good value IMO.

    Interesting. That puts them over the cap, either someone is getting demoted or they've put Sekera on Season Opening LTIR.

    I'm guessing they can do some paper transactions(likely Koskinen?) to open enough room for him.

    Are you factoring in the deletion of the Jerabek and Aberg contracts?

    Hoping he's signed for more than press box duty.

    Garrisson is a bad player and the oilers would have been better off bringing back Davidson as 7-8 D man but at least it's cheap?

    Yes. Edmonton Oilers - CapFriendly - NHL Salary Caps

    They are $60,322 over the limit so they are using the Training Camp formula rather than the Basic equation. To be honest, I don't full understand the benefits one way vs. the other, just understood that apparently the benefit is a bit better using the Basic.

    Davidson is not any better or worse than Garrison. We are talking about #7 d men here.

    At least Garrison has experience playing in the top 4 on good teams. Davidson is and will always be a journeyman.

    Even with Davidson, you only get so many chances.

    Yup. Only about $60k over.

    I think they should be able to sign Chiasson to a similar contract and be under the cap by sending down Pulju or Yam on paper.

    I’m a little surprised we signed him, in that he brings more of what we already have. Having said that, with the Jerabek trade and this being at league minimum, I don’t see it as that big of a deal.

    I guess that Gryba buyout did create cap problems after all.

    While I agree I'd rather have Davidson, I'm still happy to have Garrison, it was said we missed the veteran leadership of Hendricks last year, Garrison can provide some of that element.

    My only concern with Garrison is his speed degrading as the season stretches on, he's already at the minimum threshold speedwise, if he gets any slower he could really get exposed and targeted by teams. On the brightside we have another good depth D in Gravel, if it becomes an apparent problem.

    Not really. It's just a simple paper transaction.

    It's actually better for them to be as close to the cap as possible as far as LTIR goes.

    I don't get the love of Davidson. He keeps getting waived from other teams. He's not that good. Gravel is the same as Davidson I think and Garrisson with over 500 games brings the experience. Besides Davidson signed with Chicago and I'm sure he's done with Edmonton moving him numerous times.

    Do you have a can of beans in your possession that you would like to upend and spill?

    Davidson is what he he is, but what he is is an effective bottom pairing guy in the prime of his career. Garrison is 33 and hasn't been an effective NHLer for at least three years. He's not a top 4 D man. He's barely a bottom pairing D man at this point.

    Not a big deal in the grand scheme of things since we're talking about an extra D, but if there's injuries, it sucks not to have a better option in place.

    Or Bear.
    I also think that Sekera being assigned to LTIR is forthcoming.

    I don't care how experienced a guy is if he can't play the game anymore.

    Really hope he can just keep it together for 40-50 games. By then hopefully we have a better idea what's happening with Sekera and Bear. Maybe even Bouchard.

    Then again if this trade ever happens we might only need him to play 10-20 games

    He's probably referencing the Leavins tweet about another move possibly happening in the next few hours. I put zero stock in it personally.
