Was texting a buddy who's not part of the Oilers organization right now but he was told there's a very good chance he's on the move. He also said rumours floating around his own organization are that there are a couple guys who are going to be on the move within the next few days along with him.
So, I'm thinking a potential blockbuster or just a pretty big trade is in the works now with Edmonton for obvious reasons (our struggles, our assets). My buddy seems to think he'll be headed to Edmonton as well, but of course they're not going to tell him where he's headed due to not having a NTC and not even playing on the big club yet.
Pretty exciting stuff to look forward to boys. The organization he's apart of is not exactly a powerhouse, but looking at their roster they definitely have some interesting pieces.
I think there is some merit to this "speculation". My brother's girlfriend's hairdresser overheard one of her co-worker's clients that they are shopping for a new townhouse in Buffalo because her husband is about to be traded from the Oilers. True Story.
He's not Bob Stauffer. Bob Stauffer is in the verition of the headspace of his thought process and seems to recall that he was the one that interviewed Brian Burke after the Penner signing and the predicted that LA would win the Cup and Edmonton will finish anywhere from 18 to 22 and rebuilds usually take one year longer than expected and he has time for Edmonton product Mark Mcneill, formerly of the South Side Athletic Club and Edmonton based agent Jerry Johansson.
