Of course the Oilers already have a lot of bodies of their own on D and on LW/RW so they'll be playing the waiver game themselves.

Should be interesting seeing teams alter their lineups with PTO contracts and rookies making the teams over the next 3 weeks... plus several teams having to make minor moves to all become cap compliant.
I have a feeling CGY is going to end up taking guys that we might want.

I don't agree with any of those really
Or what has been said by MacT, a lot of guys don't want to sign PTO's.
