[VAN/EDM] David Musil to the Oil Kings

the oil kings have acquired Dman David Musil from the Vancouver giants for Mason Geertson and a 1st in 2013.

this is huge for the kings, imagine musil and lowe as a shut down pair, and when gernat gets back this d core will be a major piece of another deep playoff run

Huge for the Giants as well.

Musil has been solid all year but the defense and goaltending overall has been quite bad...

Payton Lee only has played two games, but both he played quite solid for a 16 year old kid. It sounds like he won't be up for the entire year but he gives some hope for the future.

Getting that 1st round pick and and young Geertsen really helps that youth movement for the Giants because, lets be honest, they aren't looking too hot for this year...

Really like the gritty future for the Giants, Houck, Ast, Cooke and I'm assuming Geertsen is gritty too. If they can't score, at the very least, they'll piss the other team off

This move falls right in line with what I'm expecting out of Vancouver...to start building toward a 2016 Memorial Cup hosting position.

Very pleased with the return from a Vancouver perspective. More than I expected. Musil has been disappointing over the last year or so. Maybe a change of scenery and playing in Oilers territory will help bring out the best in his game.

Wow, David Musil is a huge asset to any team let alone Edmonton. Might suck for my buddy Dysin Mayo, looks like he'll be the new 7th man.

Any chance Marek Tvrdon follows out the door as the Giants look to rebuild? The team is not very good and as a Wings fan I would like to see him get traded to another team. Wondering if that is something a lot of WHL fans see taking place?

Think it was a good move for both teams in this trade.

I really hope not. He's one of our few snipers that we have, and if he was dealt, that would truly signify that we're retooling/rebuilding for 2016. Maybe it would be in the team's best interest though.

Who really knows who is staying and who is going...

Very likely. But I would guess closer to the trade deadline. Tvrdon needs to continue scoring though. He is awful in just about every other aspect of the ice. So if he isn't putting up points his value is rather low.

He's a right-handed shot. That's a big plus considering how many lefties they have. I know a guy like Reinhart routinely plays the R side, but Mayo should still find minutes because of that alone.

I wouldn't say 'very likely' to them trading Tvrdon. Yeah, it could happen, but his suitors would be limited considering he's a Euro.

It is very likely from a Vancouver perspective. Yes, he will be more difficult to move because he is a euro but there are teams with open import slots. Not to mention Tvrdon would be an upgrade on most teams current euros. Especially for a team wanting a pure goal scorer and potential game breaker for a long playoff run.

This could be the first time they've missed the playoffs since their expansion season in 01/02 and first time they'll finish below 2nd in the division since 2005.

I know they're consistent, but they haven't been a real threat for the Mem Cup for awhile.

Would think Portland makes a nice match. They have the Euro space and a big opening on the LW.

Injuries will happen and he will slide in. But such is the life of a WHL rookie.

They're one of the most consistent teams in the WHL. They seem to find their way into the playoffs almost every year.

I'm not sure Portland really needs Tvrdon. They have plenty of offensive fire power. But you never know. Calgary also has an open spot. Unless of course Rask does return at some point. It wouldn't surprise me if a team like Edmonton shows interest in Tvrdon. I know they have two euros but Tvrdon would certainly be an upgrade on Kulda.

Plus, who wouldn't want to go play for the reigning WHL Champions?

Can you say more? we dont have any chance to see his games, so it would be nice, to read some deeper report.

I'm sure Tvrdon would love to. I just don't know how much interest Edmonton has. But I do think the Oil Kings could use more offense. And if put in the right situation Tvrdon would certainly bring that.

I'll try and say this as nicely as possible, as I don't dislike the kid but to say I'm frustrated with him would be putting it very lightly. Tvrdon can be money in the offensive zone. He has a great shot and a very quick release. But he doesn't fore check, he refuses to go into the corners and the term back check is not part of his vocabulary. He's also prone to taking stupid penalties, typically out of frustration at bad times (usually in the offensive zone).

Unless Tvrdon can learn to play without the puck I'm not convinced he'll be an NHL'er. Usually a coach like Don Hay doesn't put up with a player like Tvrdon not buying into his system but for whatever reason he seems to make an exception for Tvrdon.

Anyway I don't question his offensive abilities or his pure skill. But I do question his desire and work ethic. We'll have to wait and see what happens down the road.
