A kid that lives 100 miles from Edmonton and has nothing to do with any hockey people gets it wrong

Why can Dekeyser be signed now but we had to wait until the end of June for Schultz? Aren't they both college players?

Schultz was drafted. Dekeyser wasn't

Dekeyser was never drafted--Schultz was and so he had to wait till July 1 to sign

Does Tambo have one thumb up his *** or two?

Oilers are still obviously in a rebuild which means we are not sellers despite a losing record! Hopefully he makes a trade that improves the team and not sets it back or a lateral move.

The Iggy trade and the Smyth trade look very close to each other

I'm by no means a Tambo defender but my guess is he waits until deadline day. If nothing happens by that point then I'd say it's time to pull out the torches and pitchforks.

To be fair, this draft is looking to be much better. Still a terrible return though. Even if Kohklachev pans out

They should be pretty much identical. If anything, Smyth should have received more in return given that he was a lot younger, coming off a stronger season the year before and on pace to score 40+ goals. Smyth was a pretty solid hockey player when we dealt him at the deadline.

Trades like these always come down to the same thing: Will the prospects and picks turn out? We got good value on Smyth - the prospects we acquired simply didn't develop. We could have just as easily received Nielsen and Joensuu and drafted Pacioretty or Subban.

I don't love the value for the Flames simply because the pick will be exceptionally low (compared to 15th overall for us) and the extra "prospect" they received in the deal has pretty low potential and is likely a 5/6 defenceman at best. O'Marra and Nilsson both had some spots when we acquired them but they both also had pretty high potential - this deal for the Flames is almost entirely based on Khokhlachev turning out.

Bad deals happen.

What i'm saying is its not a terrible deal getting two prospects and a first considering iggy could play 15ish games and playoffs for the bruins. Nothing great but not terrible

Wow I like picks and KoKo but that's an absolute steal by Boston.

So glad he doesn't play for Calgary anymore, now I can actually like him!

Not that I'm in a position to be gloating as an Oiler fan but I still take joy in the misery of Flames fans. They better hope their rebuild goes a lot smoother than ours or the Flames will probably tarp the Sportchek Zone again.

Sigh. Toronto scribe Bruce Arthur just took a shot at the Oil (it's so easy).

It's a conditional first rounder no less.

@TSNBobMcKenzie: Unconfirmed but BOS-CGY appears to be Khokhlachev/Bartkowski/conditional 1st round pick for Iginla. 1st rder conditional on Iggy re-signing.

Wow didn't know it was a conditional 1st rounder that makes it worse
Alot worse

You mean "Press Level Seating"?

1st rounder is conditional on Iggy signing with Boston
