Terrible signing, we should be pursuing defencemen, but as usual Tambo ****s up by taking a guy who's got no experience and everyone hypes only based on 'potential'. Typical HF, getting excited over some run-of-the-mill prospect. Bet he'll bolt to Russia the instant Krueger asks him to participate in drills during the first day of camp.

I am fully expecting the "Hall and RNH should've been sent back to junior as 18 year olds!" crowd to chime in at least once or twice that the Oilers should've waited to see if the new CBA would have entry level deal lengths increased from 3 years to 5 before signing him.

His unsustainable shooting percentage in junior means his value will never be higher and we should trade him for a #3C who can take face offs and pk so Horcoff can concentrate on the first unit pp and outscoring Sidney Crosby.

Wait this long and only sign him for 3 years? Dont even have room in our top 6! We were better of giving the spot to Omark, no?

Once again, KLO proves he's running the show. Stupid old boys club!

And funny thing, lets say they all earn John Tavares-esq contracts, the only one that would be a major caphit increase is Eberle, everyone else's increase, again on that Tavares type deal, is fairly reasonable.

To say JTs contract is reasonable is an understatement, it's a steal and I don't think you will see everyone on The oil sign those kind of contracts, JT left millions on the table given how well he has played.

Love Yak though, modeled after my favorite player, Hope to see him light it up.

When their ELCs run out, I expect all of our big for to get more than Tavares. RNH could even get something closer to Kopitar money very early in his career. If he puts together an 80+ point 3rd season, he'll get 6-6.5M easily.

Best hope, get them all signed for similar dollars an term, at about 6M per season.

Horcoff and Hemsky's hits are gone and by that time UFAs actually want to play in Edmonton. You can make things work with 4 bigger ticket forwards. Just never overpay for goaltending and depth.

$5.5M for 6, or more, years is actually pretty reasonable for all the parties involved.

The other nice thing is that Tavares is a solid comparable and you can use the number to keep all the kids, in theory, at the same level. Like the Nik Lidstrom rule in Detroit.

He only signed a 3 year deal? It's pretty obvious by him not signing long term that he will look to bolt for the KHL as soon as his contract is up, i hear that the Kremlin is looking to poach NHL players.

In any event, i'm glad to see him signed. I never understood why so many here were worried in the first place. Now lets hope that the season starts on time so we can see the "Tatarstan Torpedo" in action as soon as possible.

Yak is on Stauffer's show right now. As I said before, even though his English is improving he still has language issues. Anyway, I guess his mother and sister are moving to Edmonton to be with him next year. His dad will be going back and forth between EDM and Russia.

Yakupov's whole family is moving with him to Edmonton. Seems like his family is dedicated to playing in the NHL as well.

Great news. This should certainly lock up a playoff spot for OKC for next season.

Didn't Pitkanen live with his parents when he played here and then asked to be traded after one season.

He lived with his mom in a hotel room IIRC. One big difference: Yak is an 18 year old rookie; Pitkanen at that time was a 24 year old with 3 years of NHL experience.

Katz should give them all great jobs that they wouldn't be able to get elsewhere.

With the money Yak is earning, not to mention how rich his father is, I doubt his mother will have to work another day in her life. Also, I do not know if his sister is old enough to work; maybe in Russia, but not in Canada. hah
