The Flames signed Hudler and Wideman last year and the club was on a downward trend. While Wideman isn't elit, there wasn't a lot of defensemen so I'm sure he got a few offers. But Cervenka was highly touted.

I honestly think the Oilers had issues with a lack of activity during the early stages of the rebuild. Like this year for example, there was a lot of teams tight against the cap and McTavish is not afraid to work the phones like he's hungry. To be honest, I'm not sure why Edmonton hasn't gone the offer sheet route. Guys like Franson and Petrang would make Edmonton deadly over night.
