Well, with Eager, Barker, Hordichuk and now Belanger, it's safe to say that no free agents would ever sign with a lottery team.

Love it. Third line center that can win faceoffs, kill penalties,contribute offensively and is exactly what we needed

He's a very stable player, he just seems to wear out his welcome after a year almost everywhere he goes.

Love it. A good 3rd line centre.

Though the Oilers now have a ton of t centers.

RNH
Gagner
Horcoff
Belanger

Maybe the plan is for RNH not to play this year?

3 years at 1.75? Wow amazing signing!

Damn! I wanted Belanger for the Sharks... I guess the term pushed Wilson away. $1.75m is a good price for Belanger but 3 years is kinda a long time for a guy like him

It was likely the years that made him sign. Grinders don't usually get the term.

Nice deal and fills a huge hole for the Oilers.

It's being reported on our Oilers' board by TSN's Ryan Rishaug as official -- Sutton for Foster straight up. Check his Twitter.

"5 other teams in the mix on Belanger, most from the west. Nice get for Oilers who need help on draws. Belanger 55 percent last year." - Ryan Rishaug

First deal the Oilers have done that I'm really happy about. I was pretty happy about Eager. Luke warm at best on the rest, but Belanger is a solid hockey player who fills a hole on this team.

Good dollar amount for a 35-40 point centerman.

Belanger didn't really "bash" Winnipeg. He said Quebec City should get a team first, and that he'd rather play there. I don't see a problem with that.

Really glad to see the Oilers pick up Belanger. He came at a good price too.
