Draft Day morning

Wow, what a fantastic couple of days that we have had in the hockey world and it seems like the best may still be ready to come. The selections by the Golden Knights seemed to start a flurry of rumors and trades, so far the biggest such deal has been the Oilers sending Jordan Eberle to the New York Islanders for Ryan Strome. On paper this deal looks like the Islanders got the better of this trade, however, the Oilers look like they will be able to get a guy who will be able to put up some bigger numbers with the Oilers and they have also freed up a bunch of cap space to be able to make room on their team for Kris Russell. It is expected that Russell will sign a 4 year 16 million dollar deal later on today which is not too bad for a guy who is a quality defender.
