Tambs better find some penalty killers. We are going to be a nasty team, but one that takes some questionable penalties.

Played his best hockey in Alberta with Medicine Hat in the WHL. Definitely overpaid but it's 1 year so I'm happy with it.

Wow. Overpayment for Barker IMO. Hordichuk could replace MacIntyre I guess.

I'm kinda confused about the Cam Barker signing...What was he making before he was bought out?

if you expect barker to do anything other then to back down from a two day infant girl, and fumble around like a fool you are mistaken, this guy got cut from the Wild terrible deal for EDM.

Barker will be a healthy scratch at least 20 games in the upcoming season.

He is not tough at all.

Cam Barker's agent needs a promotion.

The money that we gave Barker is irrelevant. It is a one year deal and we aren't at the cap floor.

I understand the Hordichuk signing, but I think the Barker signing is pointless.

Dear god. Holy overpayment batman. The sky is falling. [insert panic reaction]

It's an overpayment but it's on a 1 year deal and we're not at the cap floor.

Yeah, seriously. Oilers should have accepted a trade with pick swaps. He was making $3M/yr before.

Because Gilbert is just soft, not useless...The Barker signing really doesn't make sense.

Loved the hordy signing when he came to vancouver, but after about half a year, realized he's incredibly frustrating to watch. He goes stretches where he does nothing physically.. quite frustrating.

Great guy though. Wish him all the best.

What a terrible signing. Unless Foster gets traded, we are in for another long season. Barker is brutal. Hordichuk...meh. Won't be playing full time, will be in an out. By the way, money isn't an issue. We are below the cap floor.

By the way, we have brought in a lot more toughness and grit. Hordichuk, Eager, Smyth etc.

Don't you mean bloomington native Tom Gilbert?

The salary is a bit of a puzzle to me
