But hey it must be edmonton.
Yeah, he looked out of it a lot, and didn't seem to mess with the younger crew. Honest guy though, good hard worker who seemed to hate the situation.

I will miss the guy though. Not from his last couple seasons, but from the good fifteen or so before in which he was an Oiler. Played balls to the wall the whole time, and gave back more than you would think possible to the community.



Best of luck to him. Nilsson is too inconsistent for the trouble, POS played just like that, a POS. O'Sullivan coasted, played the game at one speed, gave up, and just looked like garbage on ice. POS can take his Green Jacket elsewhere. I will miss Nilsson though, damn that kid has hands.

Yeah, Moreau wasn't quite the leader Smith and Smyth are, but you can't fault him for it. Oh well, best of luck to the guy.

He was the most noticeably terrible player on the ice almost every game.... his -35 speaks for itself really.

You could basically guarantee he would give the puck away at his own blueline once a game, coupled with him likely not doing anything offensively except coasting around the outside and giving the puck away anytime a checker came near him.



Quite literally, he could go to any other organization and score 100 points and i would not miss him. He was just that bad.

Yea O'Sullivan probably can put up 50 points on another team, Edmonton just isn't a good enough team to have passengers in their top six. He'd probably be a decent enough piece to have until he has a good season and wants to get paid again. Then you'd want to dump him like the Flyers did with Lupul.

Exaxtly. Moreau of years earlier was one of my favorites but injuries combined with terrible interviews really soured him the last couple years. Good luck to him, edmonton charities are worse off

when sully is on he's a pleasure to watch, but most nights he's lazy and foolish. i was super pissed when the kings traded him at the deadline two years ago.

O'Sullivan was definitely born in North Carolina. He was part of the USDP and has played for USA in the World Juniors and Championships (I think). Toronto is not his home. That said, Leafs fans will literally tear this guy to pieces. Unless he can somehow up his game tremendously, you will hate hate hate him. Maybe O'Sullivan needs to play on a really good team instead of the league's worst (Kings at the time, Oilers...)

Moreau claimed

O'Sullivan traded

Edmonton trying to trade Nilsson, if not, then buy-out

Brasher, Rissmiller and Voros cleared

Have heard nothing on the other two

EDIT: Fedoruk clears, as well. Tampa expected to buy him out some time today

Just for clarification, Patrick O'Sullivan WAS born in Toronto, but moved soon afterward to North Carolina, which he considers his home. Apparently he doesnt like to talk about it, and as most know, he does represent and cheer for the US on the national level of hockey.
