Jebus that is just one more wasted contract that we could have spent on the future of our team. Should have tried to get Al Montoya from the Rangers.

what's with the wasting of money on bottom 6 forwards. Doesn't Tambo see the glairing hole on defence? Such incompetence when is the mediocrity going to end I'm really starting to hate this team

No way Carolina trades Riley Nash, but it would be great to have someone of his skillset and draft pedigree here. Instead we're stuck with this Russian kid full of question marks.

Guys lets cut the crap, we all know Yak is what we need. He got the skills to slot right into the top 6 on this team. My biggest concern though will be if he ruffles some feathers, esecially when Belanger is told that his PP time is being reduced.

Very happy to see him signed. Now just have to wait for the CBA to get done so we'll know if we'll actually see him play for the Oilers this year or not.

Anyone know when that Russia/Canada junior series starts this august btw?

Belanger deserve it! Have you seen his slapshot! It puts novice players to shame.

That's great to have the support of his family like that, his moms home cooked meals, etc.

Yeah, we all assumed he'd be staying with Khabby. Maybe when they go on the road...

Happy to read about this. It's also great news to have his family here with him, gives him a sense of grounding and familiarity that a young millionaire might need when the grind of a season sets in.

Sweet

Hmmmm....and yet his girlfriend is conspicuously missing in that group....must have gotten wind of his interview where he was asked about whether he had a g/f yet.

Anyways, looks like some people on here can step away from the ledge now, although i wouldnt have minded if a few in here would have taken one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
