    I never know what to think of Lawton. He seems to be a yes man when on local radio, as well sometimes he is kind of out to lunch with some of his thoughts/opinions.

    I'd be happy with what he is saying though.

    RNH to me is the type of player who is not going to fall off a cliff when he's 33-35. Smart players who can skate well typically don't. Worst case scenario in 8 years we're dealing with a contract like Parise/Carter/Pavelski. Guys who are overpaid and old, but still effective.

    I hope he stays an Oiler until he's 35 and if he took a discount that starts with 6 that would be incredible.

    The comparable I've always liked for him is Patrick Marleau.

    I wouldn’t even be mad if RNH signed for 8 million a year. Anything under 7 is a steal.

    Handshake deal and leave him unprotected for expansion.
    This team has a lot of room for Nuge

    Nuge will stay. He'd be dumb to not stay. He's seen how money has wrecked other players careers and who wouldn't want to play with the 2 best players in the NHL? As someone said above, if we sign him for 7M or less, it's a steal.

    He predicted Tippett would be our coach when nobody but nobody had him on anyone's radar.

    I think a 6-7 deal long term is fair with Nuge. It's a steal now and likely a risk near the end so it balances out.

    I want to see him win a cup in Edmonton. I want him to be the first players than Connor passes it to!

    They are saying the cap may be flat for several years which means RNH probably doesn't get a very large raise if one at all. Regardless I think he sees we have turned a corner and would want to stay, plus I cant see other teams lining up to sign him to a longer term for more money.

    I wonder where Sean Day signs next season. I assume he signs with an AHL team. I understand the issues with the kid, but he always had a tendency to wow you with his natural ability in junior. I wouldn't mind Bakersfield taking a shot next year. Woodcroft and Manson have had great results developing the games of our young Dmen over the past couple seasons. At 22, there may still be a player there.

    I'm kind of surprised someone hasn't convinced him to try wing yet.

    He could probably be an NHL 4th liner just based on physical tools alone.

    Id love it if Nuge, Connor and Leon all retired as Oilers after lengthy and successful careers.

    Has any player ever had a 15+ year career only with Edmonton? I can't think of one.

    If there's even a 1% degree of validity to this tweet, take it and run, and hiss hiss on our way out.
    Nuge, always.

    Off the top of my head, Kelly Buchberger is the longest serving Oiler.

    I'm going to be wrong, but he's just there.

    Also, Baby Nuge is 27.

    It's also June of 2020.

    Holy shit.

    I think Smyth is the closest with 13 or 14 combined over two stints, which doesn't meet your criteria of being only with Edmonton. I don't think they have ever had a career Oiler with that lengthy of a career.

    Lowe has the most GP in franchise history but even he had the break when he went to the Rangers. Here’s the full list:

    Well, shit. I can only assume that Oiler fans have had and still have nothing but amazing things to say about him.


    Also, unrelated, by why is everyone wearing masks outside?
