Forget Jordan Eberle, this is the real meat of the problem that isn't being discussed enough. There are far too many complacent posters who have glommed onto this idea that we're just contenders now, and not enough people are seeing the massive risk the Oilers take by not seriously addressing this problem.

The Oilers bottom-4 defense of Sekera-Russell/Nurse-Benning was not good enough WHEN everyone was healthy. You can't not reasonably ask them to contend for a Cup with a below average group and VERY below average depth.

It needed to be significantly upgraded before Andrej Sekera was hurt. It needs to be now. That means not re-signing Kris Russell first and foremost.

I think the + would have to be significant. Probably 22nd OA + 1 of Bear/Jones. I'd still pull the trigger if that were the case. I'd like to see if Nuge and Dumba could rediscover some chemistry from their Rebel days on the 2nd PP unit.

Still though, if you were Vegas would you flip a young, legit 2nd pair RHD? Probably not.

NHL needs to confirm all teams met the qualifications--one reason we saw some small deals and fringe players signed

I don't know what you and Virgin are smoking because high danger scoring chances are down 300% at least from the year before and another 300% from the year before.

Probably down well over 1000% from Eakins stint.

Note all numbers are purely fabricated but I have faith in the community that track/can find high danger scoring chanes and back up the intent behind my statements.

High danger scoring chances, by my eye test, is the difference between the Oilers recent success and previous failure.

Talbots numbers and play certainly do not place him as The reason the Oilers made the playoffs. Guy didn't even get much of a nod for the Vezna despite playing almost every game.

Russell is not the best but he does block a rediculous number of high quality scoring chances. Its literally what he is all about. Give them space to shoot, block, rinse repeat. Blocked shots do not count as scoring chances at all.

What a circus. Terrible timing to start with, and now everyone who dragged their ***** out of bed on the one day of the week they'd usually sleep in, have to sit around for an extra half hour because this league is ran by chimpanzees.

Why would it actually matter to anyone if it's at 8:00 or 8:30?

They're getting released today for the teams' benefit, not ours.

Friedman says Mrazek could be unprotected. Maybe that's who the Flames should have gone after.

I think Treveling and Burke must have come to the conclusion that they need a proven, veteran starter.

Idiots.
