Looks like the Oilers are serious about accruing cap space whereever possible in case they are in a position at the deadline by carrying as few healthy players in the pressbox as possible. Everyday that Eager, Jones or Larsen spends in the AHL allows about $25K/per player in additional salary cap space at the deadline.

I don't mind the strategy, especially when we have a couple days off like right now, but we gotta hope no one comes up lame on a game day, or rather that 2 fluky injuries on a practice day as OKC is simply too far to get someone here on very short notice. Makes me wonder if one of Grebs or RNH could go in a pinch.

It sure would be nice to have a farm team somewhere in the prairies then we'd basically never have to carry more than 1 healthy press box guy when playing at home.
