I like it. I think we needed some more offense on the back end and the top 4/2 guys cost way too much. This is another low risk move, if he struggles or when Sekera returns send him to Bako. Sure we have tons of promising young D down there but a couple of those guys will probably spend time in the echl.

That's probably it for the off season unless there's a trade happening.

I think I'd pencil him in on pairing 3 on the left side until Sekera is back. Could be an interesting guy to pair with Russell.

Klef-Lars
Nurse-Benning
Auvitu-Russell
After lowetide starting talking about him. I think putting him in the line up would be a dangerous idea. Still trying to figure out why he was a healthy scratch in the ahl.

Peter; any thoughts on our next move?
Craig: we need to be bold. Let's got after Crosby. Maybe OV too.
*Peter stares blankly*
Peter; good idea, Craig.

Some interesting observations on Auvitu here....

http://www.dobberprospects.com/yohann-auvitu/

Quote:
Following an initially strong NHL start, his AHL offensive totals (five goals, eight assists in 29 games, 2.83 shots-per-game average) weren't bad, but his overall play did decline somewhat. Missing several weeks with a lower-body injury didn't help.
This is the only mention I have seen about an injury last season...that certainly might explain why his season seemed to derail.

He could be a sleeper in training camp this September.

He's the right type of player, but heavily sheltered in NJ. An interesting add tho, and if all he ends up as is AHL depth I suppose there's some value in that.

Heavily sheltered on that NJD defence core?

Isn't that kind of like being heavily warmed as a homeless dude during a northern Alberta winter?

Definitely has a shot. Played on NJs PP. Likely his dzone play needs a lot of work but hes only got 25 GP so thats to be expected even for a 27 year old. I think we could see him make a bit of noise in TC. Maybe even grab a roster spot as an extra D with a good preseason.

It was like being heavily sheltered on Edmonton's defense corps before last season.

Send you time machine to Chiarelli and we'll see what he can do. GMs gotta play the hand they are dealt sometimes.

Got up and searched "Oilers sign Jagr" like I do every morning and this came up... still, seems like a potentially good signing.

I know nothing about this player and won't pretend that I do. I just hope the Oilers scouts have improved to the point where some of these signings actually pan out.

I don't know how you lose... A wealth of knowledge that everyone could benefit from.

would this be under amateur scouting or pro ?

We have been doing good with amateur scouts of late especially if college kids come under then as well as draft picks.

Have we acquired a surprisingly useful PRO since Maroon?

Strome's play will the biggest determining factor for our pro scouts.

Capfriendly has the contract as 1 year/$700k. Maybe the thread title should be amended?

I assume the added $50k per year will make some people on here hate this contract now.

It would be pro scouting.

I'd argue Russell has been surprisingly useful.

The contrast between his scouting report and statistics is kind of interesting.

Most people say he's an offensive defenseman who is poor defensively, but the stats make him look like New Jersey's best defenseman defensively(albeit in a sheltered role) who struggled offensively.

Oilers are up to 48 contracts. I'd have to think they're done.
