    So Kenny said in the morning press conference we will be getting a goaltender before the start of the AHL training camp. Please let us take Anderson

    I like the idea but the problem will be having to carry 3 goalies on the roster in risk of losing him on waivers. I wonder if he waits out Carolina to see if they waive Forsberg again.

    As he should. There's no one on the market that would realistically fill the roles he does. The Oilers should absolutely be taking their time with this negotiation, but sticking at under $7m would be a colossal error in judgement if he managed to go to market.

    I never understood the logic of 'taking away' a player's job to argue a case against them. Taylor Hall would be a ~40 point player if he was a fourth line center.

    Never been a PPG player once in his career, and you're saying he'll be more than that. He's 28 in 3mths, this season.

    Nuge is a very good complimentary player, but not a driver offence. now that the Oilers have a few more players in the stable Nuge may not be getting all that quality toi and first unit PP time to bump stats. McDrai were clearly the best thing for him. He's going to do better here where the Oilers understand what he is and his limitations. Any team acquiring him that is willing to pay him more than we do will very quickly sour on some of the dividends they are getting for their money. A player like Nuge is best suited to play out his career in one location, and for the team that drafted him. This is his best play, I hope he realizes it. He should talk to Hemsky, Hall, Eberle, Gagner mroe to know how much you land in the outhouse with other clubs as soon as you aren't producing for a stretch.

    Nuge gets unconditional regard here with the Oilers. Thats pretty valuable, he should keep it. Nice gig here, and not close to having to drive the train and have all that expectation. Nuge put in a situation where he was the guy, I wouldn't want to see that.

    So On The Panel they are saying Oilers could still have Forsberg. He hasn't left Edmonton and there could be something going on with Carolina. They put Alex Nedeljkovic on waivers and are waiting to see if he clears.

    Who is saying this? I saw a few Canes fans speculate that may be the case, so i'm wondering if someone in the media said something. I sure hope thats the case

    EDIT: nevermind i see below

    What the hell? They're seriously holding out for a trade off a waiver claim less than a day later?

    What an absolute dick move to Forsberg. He's gonna hate carolina for life.

    They will probably just put him on waivers. Don't think anyone will bite if that's what they are looking for. I think he will be back with the Oilers

    Even if its for FC, if its to a US team hes making Forsberg miss the next two weeks for nothing. I don't know if they'll find any takers though, probably just put him back on waivers.

    Question is if Oilers are the only team to put a claim in on him, can they put him right on the taxi squad?

    If he clears they can assign him directly I believe.

    I don't know if this is the case but someone on the mains said that the only way you can trade a waiver claim this quickly is if no other team put in a claim for them, so if every other team in the league said no to getting him for free is Waddell really just trying to give Holland the screws or what?

    I'm fairly certain the answer to the bolded is yes. Actually, further to that, even if other teams put claims on Forsberg I'm fairly certain that the Oilers get first priority.

    Maybe they think Chiarelli is still GM and think they can get more?

    I'll be pissed if they get something of actual value back for him, Johnston followed up those tweets by saying depth goaltending is really hot right now. Which isn't surprising considering 3 have already been claimed

    I wouldn’t say “bad”

    wouldn’t make sense but wouldn’t be franchise crushing either

    if you know now that RNH is not intending to sign, you take him off the top line/mcdavid's wing immediately.
