Player and salary are gross.

It might be worth it to take him on if you got Drouin out if it. But if you're including Yakupov I don't really see the point.

As I said in the last thread, Horcoff return is now Svoboda and a 5th.

It's actually somehow getting better.

Can't complain about getting something for Larsen. Has 1 year till UFA left, and he was not very good. He can skate sure, but he was weaker than Schultz, very poor defensively, and didn't have much of a shot from the point. Would have been more of the same if they tried to get him here next season.

I legitimately forgot that Larsen was still part of this organization. Good to get something for nothing.

Larsen put up 12 points in 30 games for the Oilers a couple of years ago. That would put him 2nd on our team in D scoring this year behind Sekera who has 21 points in 60 games. Crazy.

He would've been a lot more useful than three or four of the guys who have played defence for the Oilers this season. Even if he was atrocious defensively he would be our best puck mover by a mile.

This trade reminded me of him as well. What is his story? Could he come over and replace Lander next year?

I always was a fan of his.

That is truly a shocking statistic.

And it's not like this team is loaded with right handed puck moving defenceman.

Yup, next up Roman Horak and Toni Rajala.

The Oilers are actually on the cusp of being the biggest laughing stock in pro North American sports in modern memory. The Stanley Cup Finals appearance in 2006 is probably the only thing keeping them away from that title. Another bottom 5 finish in the league will solidify them as perhaps the worst pro sports team in history over a 10 year span.

Another way of Chia saying. If I can get a 5th for Larsen. I ain't taking anything less than a 2nd for Schultz

It's also a bit misleading. He spent a decent portion of those 30 games playing forward and put up a decent number of those points as a winger.

Believe it or not he actually produced all 12 points playing as a defenceman.

I just watched the highlights of all 12 goals to see because I remember him playing as a forward as well and was curious.

We mutually terminated with Rajala.

We only own Horak's rights.

He scored more than one goal as a forward. Think he even did it in back to back games.
