Go oilers!

We all know it could have just as easily been a reverse situation this year.

He has? Can you provide a link to one quote? I've seen nothing from Kane indicating he wants to come to Edmonton.

Ya that’s news to me. All I see are NY city cab driver memes.
Only reason he’d come to Edmonton would be to play with Mcdavid and pump up his numbers before he goes out.

Not that it really matters because Kane signed a 4 year deal, but he was quoted as saying ........

“Throughout the last 12 months there have been lots of road blocks, tons of adversity and many tough days. I’m grateful for the tremendous amount of support from family, friends, teammates, and others who have helped me stay strong through those difficult times,” Kane wrote in the tweet Tuesday night.

"... A big part of my decision to stay in Edmonton was because of the opportunity given to me only seven months ago but also the chance to be a part of a championship team. I want to win, and I believe after signing this deal, we will be able to add the right pieces along with myself to accomplish that goal, a championship."

Sorry my bad, I missed the Patty in the first post, just saw the Kane wrong Kane, I'll go watch curling now, I'm still stressed after watching that Oilers lose to the worst team in the NHL

It's been a very good game, Oilers playing with some passion. That late goal by Bruins was unfortunate, but not a back breaker.

Should be a good 3rd period.

I was a fan at the beginning and thought there was so much upswing for him, especially when he got a second chance. With his size he could be a wrecking ball in the corners but he was so timid to engage. Glad they have finally moved him, looks like they took his full contract so that's good. Hope he can turn it around.

Good luck to Pool Party, I hope he does well.

The oilers are the highest scoring team in the NHL they average 3.8 goals per game, given that they sit in a wild card spot it's easy to see their defense is suspect as is their goal tending, I hope this frees up $3 million for a decent defenseman

Jarmo Kekalainen knew something that Peter Chiarelli didn't...

I wish JP well in his career. He seems like a really good kid. It just didn't work out.

It's almost as hard to teach hockey sense as it is to teach size. It's tough to teach mean too. JP only has 1 outta 3. The game just didn't seem to click for him a lot of the time.

There wasn't a lack of effort in games, he always played hard, was defensively responsible, and tried to get to the right places, and often he did get there, the problem was, once he got there, he couldn't make it count.

I obviously have no idea what his off ice training and skills regimen is, but he's in desperate need of improving his puck skills. His inability to control the puck and his poor shooting skills (the kid has zero finish) are what's crushing his career. Those are skills that can be improved with a good trainer and a lot of hard work. He'll never be above average IMHO, but if he could even get to "average" in those areas and gain some confidence, he has the size and speed to have a long career as a bottom 6 forward that can play in the top 6 when needed.

Here's hoping that's just the first of several dominoes to fall in Kenny's master plan...

That what I'm afraid of. Hope he has great success going forward though.

Carolina's got a few Finns on the team. Wouldn't be surprised if having some fellow countrymen around helps Puljujarvi get back on track.

Agreed Yamomoto needs to go. To small, stone for hands, 9 goals in the last 68 games. Disappears in the playoffs.

100% agreed. I love the tenacity and his heart, but he doesn't have the hands to be a top 6 winger, and he's too small to play in the bottom 6.

I'd like to see him and his contract for next year going the other way in whatever trade it is that Holland is brewing. They'd be getting pretty thin at RW though...

So was I yet am not sad to see him go. From time to time one sees so much potential yet mostly, not so much. Good skaters should be able to turn on a dime or even a quarter yet he took the whole buck to get it done.

I’d love to see Yami and Nurse go for Karlsson

You fellers got a Dman.

"The Edmonton Oilers stayed busy on Tuesday, acquiring defenceman Mattias Ekholm from the Nashville Predators in exchange for defenceman Tyson Barrie, forward Reid Schaefer, a 2023 first-round pick and a fourth-round selection in 2024."

Ekholm is what they need. I wish he was a righty though so we could push Ceci and Bouchard down the lineup.

I won't miss next year's first rounder, it'll be the last pick of the first round anyway . Schaefer has potential, but likely isn't a game breaker.

I am concerned about losing Barrie. He's having a solid season in all aspects, and most importantly, chemistry on the PP is a kind of voodoo, and he had it. The PP is not nearly as good with Bouchard or Nurse on the ice. That will take some time to sort itself out, hopefully they can keep it rolling.

Excellent. Not sure if he is NHL calibre (however all third, fourth liners can fall into this category). Both parties need a new lease. Good luck Pool Party.
