    I didn't see this anywhere and I don't have an official link, but it looks like the come back is on.

    I wonder what the plan is to actually make the cap work.

    Edit: I got a Score App update that it's happening or has happened.

    Good. Wonder if he'll be able to come back after 2 years of injuries. Not sure how the cap situation will work aswell..

    I didn’t think the oilers had the cap space to activate him.

    I doubt it, but I'll drink to hope! :cheers:
    We sure could use a decent Sekera, even if it's for next season.

    Cap should not be a problem. If I have learned anything from these last months it is that cap considerations are not really an issue right now.

    I think if Klefa is still on IR, but yeah, it's a bad spot for the team right now.

    Seems like they used aLTI conditioning stint instead of a regular conditioning stint.
    So they didn’t have to activate him yet. But if he’s healthy enough to prove he can lay down there we will need to activate him very soon in which case the team will need to be putting a couple guys on waivers or making some trades.

    They likely have something else in the works to clear up cap space. Talbot traded maybe hopefully spooner, manning

    Conditioning Loan, so he's not activated

    Fingers crossed he can get going down there. Getting back Klefa and Sekera, at even like 75% of what he used to be, would be huge for this team

    LTIR is still in effect. It does not end until his conditioning stint is over since the technical purpose of such a move is to determine if he is fit to play.

    I'm probably in the minority here but we may as well just shut him down until next season. Have him skate and participate in practices. I'd rather have a 100% healthy Sekera come next October. This season is a write off anyways. Opening night I expect:

    Klefbom-Larsson
    Nurse-acquisition
    Sekera-Bouchard/Jones/Persson

    Now that he’s been sent on an LTIR conditioning stint after 3 games or 6 days and he - not the club - feels he is NHL ready we cannot shut him down. He’s passed the baseline tests so that ship has sailed. He can stay 2 more games on approval from Bettman alone. After that he’s on our NHL roster.

    We need to clear about 1.5m off the cap before Sunday basically.

    So goodbye 1 of Petrovic or Talbot. I don’t think Benning or Manning are movable. Both will be pressboxed as our 7/8 pairing once Sekera and Klefbom are back. Sekera will take the bottom with one of Gravel Benning or Manning.

    I think this is a virtual guarantee of activity at the trade deadline.
    Trade deadline may not be overly enjoyable from an Oilers fan perspective but it should be very interesting.

    They do with a couple of transactions, but it's going to be interesting how they do it.

    The simplest way would be to send Malone and Gravel down, but if they don't want to risk losing Gravel, they'll have to do something funky like playing a defenseman at forward.

    I think they'd only have to run with 12F/7D for a couple of games after Sekera is back in the lineup to gain enough wiggle room to bring another forward back up.

    On another note...I am really pulling for Sekera to at least be at 80% of the Sekera from 2 years ago.

    He was the FA acquisition I wanted back in 2015...he was a such a solid and well rounded dman for the team until his first major injury.
    I really like this player and I hope he isnt done.

    Hell even 60% Reggie would be the Oilers' second best D until Kelf is back given the way Larsson has been playing.

    I hear you. With Klefbom out all of the dmen have been struggling. Just goes to show how valuable he really is.
    My thinking is that if reggie can get close to 80% then adding him and Klefbom is a major deal for thsi team.
    Its like a whole new defence...2 players added that can actually move the puck and defend

    Why?... Imagine if he gets back to full form. We'd have a top 4 that's an actual top 4 and Russell will be on the bottom pair with Gravel.

    Klefbom Larsson
    Nurse Sekera
    Gravel Russell

    Looks good no?

    He was bad when he was inserted back into the lineup last year, this is probably the most reasonable course of action
