as long as prv is playing top six, with a regular spot on a PP unit he can develop here. the problem is if renney prefers belanger/jones/horc/certain dmen on the PP still.

should be taken beyond his control though with eberle and RNH out.

I do like O'Marra being called up, i said it when Green was called up that i thought O'Marra should have been here instead of Green.
I agree completely. Give him the 2nd line RW spot if Eberle is out for a few more games. If not the big wigs are wasting our time and our prospects!

Do you think that him bouncing around from the bottom 6 to the top 6 to the bottom 6 to the pressbox to OKC back to the top 6 then back again to the bottom 6 or OKC when Eberle returns is good for his development?

What i would do is keeping him in OKC for the rest of the year so that he can regain his confidence (which he seems to have been doing down there) let him get a taste of being in a winning atmosphere and play some playoff games so that it toughens him up then start him fresh next year in the top 6 to most likely replace Hemsky full time IF he earns it in Training Camp.
Depends how they use him, I don't think the plan is to bounce him around that much. There is no room for him to be used in a more offensive role, something there wasn't before.

It sure seems foolish to expose Brule to a waiver claim, when they have so many injuries on both the Oil and OKC.

I'm pretty certain Brule gets claimed at this point in the season. Seriously what is the point of doing that to OKC?

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

still paying him 1.8M this year, would only half to pay half.

im wondering why he wasnt exposed earlier, would save katz about 450K right now, would have saved him a total of 900K at the beginning of the year.

We are pretty stacked down there and the talk all year has been about opening up room. Not sure if it's the end of the world.

Umm yeah. Paying 1.8 million and getting something or paying 900k and getting absolutely nothing. Sounds like your proposal is a great ROI.

But isn't it for twice the term though? Wouldn't that mean we have to pay next year as well or does the fact he only has this year change that?

Seems kind of silly to do it now when both teams are hurting and you already paid half his salary....Unless of course they need the contract space due to possible signing/trades.....

We'll see in April.

I'm pretty sure we could be looking back tot his move when the Barons fall from top spot and make an early 1st round playoff exit. On the other hand maybe guys like Hamilton and Pitlick are ready to step it up, I don't know.

Either way this team gets a pile of injuries. I don't see what the point in saving about 450k is to lose some depth, unless of course this isn't a hockey move and is the Oilers doing Brule a favor to get him back into the NHL.

Like I said when I saw him at the bar, he gave me the impression that he would miss some games but nothing serious.

The impression Hall and Horcoff gave me was something entirely different.

You're thinking of a buyout where the dollar amount is spread over twice the remaining contract length.

I suppose opening up another contract spot is another positive to the move. Although I think the Oilers have to be in a position to be making a 3 for 1 trade instead of doing a 1 for 3 trade.

Exposing Brule to reentry was always in the team's plans, ever since he didn't crack the lineup to start the year.

There isn't a point to keeping him. To retain his rights costs 1.85M this summer. Not happening. Other prospects will get some additional opportunities as well (like Pitlick, Hamilton and Hartikainen).

The Oilers stink. These minor moves are just part of the "process".

It could just be about doing him a favor.

with that being said Brule isn't exactly lighting it up down there so maybe he goes unclaimed.

You don't get rich by not caring about nearly half a million bucks. Please let me never come close to a business you are involved in.

Brule isn't the make or break players needed to win a Calder Cup. Sorry to say.

What does this mean? The summer really means nothing as we don't have to offer him anything.
