Oil Kings make major move

There hasn't been a lot of Oil King's talk this year, mostly because the team isn't very good. But today the Oil Kings traded their best 2 forwards to the Giants. Looks like the team is throwing in the towel, and looking to the future. Just wondering what your guys thoughts are on the team and the trade? Do you think there’s more moves to come? Maybe they trade Jung?

Copied from my comment on the Pipeline blog:

"The OKs don't want more 16-year-olds? I get that, but then acquire a single '92. Piluso is an energy forward who scraps a bit, sort of like Tie Domi. I like him and he's going to be a good addition to the dressing room but he's an add-in, not a player you build a deal around.

Svendsen is a little bigger than that- IIHF has him at 5'10, 181 and EliteProspects at 5'10, 183- and he had a nice WJC Div-1 but he's not someone I'd say would be a future impact junior player. He's pugnacious for his size, fearless on the forecheck and can kill penalties quite well thanks to his speed and hockey sense but he's not near skilled enough to become the 'next Mikkel Boedker' people thought he was going to be when he tore up Swedish J18. He's basically a center version of Robin Soudek.

I do agree with the premise of not trading Jung, though. Anyone who has been around that dressing room the last couple years knows he's essentially the captain and you'll never meet someone more grounded or with more patience. It's the first WHL deadline for many of the young guys so keeping a familiar face around is important. You need to be bad to finish last and you accomplish that via a firesale but the Kings are well on their way and you don't want to burn the kids you've got in the process."

Hopefully the big club follows suit and does the same.

That will be it since the deadline was this afternoon.

Oilkings are in last so trading a couple of 20/19 for younger players and the future is a good thing

Today they traded a 20 and a 19 for... a 20, a 19, a 18 and 2 draft picks.

The two they gave up have 45 points combined, the three coming in have 41.

Going out: 6'2 205lbs. and 6'1 207 lbs.
Coming in: 5'10 175lbs, 5'9 175 lbs and 5'8 176 lbs.

They got smaller and gave up points. Good thing this isn't a move to make them better this year! The future is better.

Seems to be the trend in Edmonton

i'm not that familiar with the Oil Kings (but everyone knows Vincour) ... and I have to say I'm surprised at the return... Weak? I would have thought at least a 2nd round pick would be in that package..

I thought they should have been able to get a 15 or 16 year old that went hgh in the draft like they did when they added Klarc Wilson for Brent Raedeke.

I'm sure they tried but I'm led to believe that no one was offering those types of players for Vincour so... Green did what he should have done and took the best offer.

It's less than I expected but it's more than he would have got for those two players next year; nothing.

Reading about the players they traded and the players they acquired, they're mostly moving pretty laterally I would say...no?

I'd pretty much agree with the added bonus of the acquired picks.

I was sitting in front of both of them on the Westjet flight today. They seemed really excited about the playoffs. I wished them luck on the way off the plane.
