My thoughts exactly. There are several guys on our current roster I'd swap for Darren Helm.

What is OKC's roster looking like for next year? Rieder and Pelss should be elligible as they are CHL imports, right? Gernat likely spends 2012-2013 with the Oil Kings. Marincin, Davidson, Fedun, Teubert and Blaine (if signed)...

C
Pitlick
House
Martindale
Vande Velde

LW
Cornet
Tremblay
Pelss
Hamilton
Abney???

RW
Rieder
Arcobello
Tyrvainen

Add a couple of AHL veterans?

Teubert-Marincin
Davidson-Fedun
Blaine-Plante (if qualified)

Plus add a vet or two?

G
Olivier Roy
Tyler Bunz
-50/50 split

I think Roy and Bunz should be good enough to get the Barons to the playoffs.

Pelss is eligible, Rieder isn't.

Agreed. Pelss has a better skill set imo. Has the wheels, goes to the dirty areas and plays with an edge. His all round game is better than his numbers suggest and I really don't know why his numbers are not better than they are.
I like this signing and think the kid has a chance to make it.

Obviously throw in some FAs for forward depth and some guys on AHL deals. There will likely be a few trades made during the course of the offseason as well but this is what the overall depth chart is looking like at the moment.

Why? Isn't he a 19 year old CHL import too?

What is the minimum age for an AHL player?

Per AHL By-Laws, the age limit for eligibility to compete in the American Hockey League is 18 years or over, on or before September 15 of each season of competition.
(according to their website)

Tobias Rieder
Right Wing
Born Jan 10 1993 -- Landshut, Germany
Height 5.11 -- Weight 190 -- Shoots L

Rieder is an import, but he was drafted out of the CHL, where as Pelss was drafted out of Belerus then came to the CHL.

Players drafted out of the CHL need to be 20 years old or have played four years of junior, I believe.

If you have Helm's skillset with far less offence, that's not really an NHL player.

Ahh. I see.

Thanks for the clarification. I guess another year in the OHL won't be the worst thing for him either. A year spent on a top line with Radek Faksa might even be a preview...Faksa is an interesting prospect. Big centre with some skill and having watched him in the OHL playoffs, he reminds me of Bobby Holik. A player to watch in mid-late 1st round.

Hmm..capgeek:

http://capgeek.com/charts.php?Team=1

UFAs - Smyth, Petrell, Hordichuk.

RFAs - Gagner, Omark, VandeVelde, Barker, Peckham, Petry, Dubnyk

Guys in green will most likely be re-signed, black are maybes (traded?), and red not at all IMO.

EDIT - Expanding on this for the non-roster players - I don't know enough about these guys to guess on who we'd keep TBH.

RFAs - Plante, Hunter, Kytnar.

UFAs - Chorney, Danis, Keller, Green, Rodney

Well, that's not what was said. It was said he is a "Darren Helm clone". I don't know much about Pelss, but if he's a Darren Helm clone, that'd be enough for me to be happy about this contract. Darren Helm has a full time job on a pretty good Detroit team. Don't try and tell me he wouldn't make the Oilers.

It's constantly on reruns so no surprise more people have seen it since it went off the air than regular watched it while it was in first run.

I could see him starting out in Stockton and then hopefully he will force his way up from there. Time shall tell.

Pelss too old to go back to the Oil Kings? I suspect if he can play in the dub that the Oilers keep him there instead of the ECHL.

It's older than Chelios's umbilical cord.

Took me about 3 mins to realize that the title was not "... Oilers Sign Kristian Huselius... ".

Sorry for intruding!

Just wanna hear your opinion on this kid! My native! We have only one Latvian left in the NHL, and even he isn't a regular guest on the ice there - Daugavins. I wish Pelss was another one to join this league some day.

Found some vids on Youtube... as if it was hard to find it... hehe But i was really impressed. An unusual Latvian. Too nasty for one, but enough for NHL?

Love that first video especially.. I think he moved up about 5 spots in my Oilers prospects rankings just based on that video alone.
