I'll admit I liked the signing (as did about 90% of HFOil)

Sad to see how things turned out, especially with the concussion issues. I'm confident that he would've been claimed if his contract was over this season. The extra year is the killer and the reason he's still Oilers property.

I heard Eager got a few offers but Edmonton was the only team offering the contract length he wanted.
