    Saad would be a massive, MASSIVE, MAAAAAAAASSSSSSIVE, upgrade on Lucic. We wouldn't be able to get Saad for Lucic + 1st + Yamo. Why in gods green earth would Chicago make that trade? lol Dreaming in technicolor

    They're not exactly wrong.

    I don't understand how he still has a job.

    Lucic would be a separate deal. They would want him for cheap is what was stated.

    Which is right because Saad lacks motivation and would be another boat anchor.

    Chia would do something worse like Pulju for Keith.

    I know Jarry has been trending well, but I don't see a huge need in Edmonton for a guy like that.

    I like the player but the Oilers might not even have a starting goalie or a back up locked down next year.

    He has? His numbers look pedestrian at best.

    I meant as in moving from the WHL to the AHL and then the NHL while showing some success in all of those leagues along the way in a short period of time.

    He put up good numbers in the A back in 16-17, but looks like he's spinning his wheels at the moment.

    Jordan Weal to Arizona for a 6th. I like this trade for the Coyotes, Weal is pretty good.

    A bit OT but has anyone heard anything about Patrik Berglund? I'm starting to doubt he ever existed.

    He's home in Västerås Sweden, he went to a game the other day (swe 2nd league).

    Friends/colleges in SWE say they've been in contact with him to express support but without commenting on the issue and always pointing out that they did not discuss hockey and/or the future because it "is not a good time".

    My best guess would be some kind of depression issue, otherwise I don't get it.

    No more ex-Oil Kings please. They are literally all busts.

    Man if we could just pay to get rid of Spooner, Lucic and Manning that's so much good cap space to use

    No worries. It's an odd case that's for sure. I have only heard news from very local sources in his home town, everything/one else is quiet.

    He seems like a player who would break out in a huge way if given a chance. Similar to Maroon when we acquired him.

    Maybe. I think he could be a good candidate to become a scrappy scorer ala Arvidsson/Zucc/Parise etc but maybe only 20 goals.

    So he'd be the best winger on our team :).
    They played him at C when he's always done better as a winger.

    Not true. He mostly played on wing..and had stints in the top 6. Only this year he was being used mostly at center

    He would look good for 1 game and terrible for the next 10

    Don't we have enough failed/likely to fail projects?

    Think bigger please.
