Oh, man. Those quotes are so carefully scripted. I will give Winter a lot of credit on how he coached his client there. It doesn't answer any of the key questions that fans are asking, really. Theses are:

1. Do you want to be an Oiler?
Well he wants to play "here"--assuming that's Edmonton--my cynical side says, "Sure he wants to play in the NHL in Edmonton, but for what team that's on a road trip in Alberta?" For now I will assume "here" means playing for Edmonton and give him the benifit of the doubt I guess.

2. Do you want to be an Oiler?
"I came back and hopefully we can figure something out, but it is part of the agreement between the Oilers and myself that we would try to keep everything confidential at this time."

3. Do you want to be an Oiler?
"I'm back, and I will probably be skating at the University of Alberta, so hopefully in the near future I will be back playing in the NHL."
