Oil City Thoughts

Martin St-Louis, Ilya Kovalchuk, Jason Spezza, Olli Jokinen, Jordan Staal and more. Who should the Oilers be looking at?

The Edmonton Oilers head into the trade deadline as neither a real “buyer” or a real “seller”. The club’s only UFA’s are G Dwayne Roloson, F Erik Cole & D Jason Strudwick. If the club has any intention of competing the rest of the season, then Roloson (arguably the Oilers best player this season) cannot be moved. It’s also believed the Oilers and Roli will come together on a new contract to keep the netminder in Edmonton next season. Strudwick should be back in a depth role as well.

Deadline Dealables

The trade deadline is coming in less than 4 days and rumors are more prevalent than ever.
Everything from incredibly insane deals and lopsided deals to surprisingly equal trades have been thrown around in rumors and in a few days many of us will get to see if we were dead on, close or far off.

Gainey could look like a genius!

Bob Gainey could come out of the off-season Free Agent Frenzy looking like a genius. Now that is not to say that he has become somewhat heightened in his intelligence level but rather more likely a stroke of luck with the current econmic turmoil in the world.
