    So the Flames pick up James Neal. Jesus. Where were the Oilers in all the free agent signings?

    This story broke a few days ago. They signed Kyle Broadziak and Ryan Strome. Karlson from Ottawa Senators is still available but Dorion etc. are in no hurry to move him.

    Karlsson would fit in nicely with the Oilers. If we only had a bit more cap space he could be the key to Stanley. Toronto gets Tavares. Lucky for them. Karlssons not a free agent though, would have to give up a lot. Rumour is Yzermans got a handle on him.

    ^ Possibly, although I'm no expert. I'm still whining over the loss of Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle. Imagine if the Oilers had the cap space to have kept
    Eberle, and Hall? That of course would destroy the Oilers cap space, lol.

    Off to the side trying to figure out how to get rid of 2-3 really bad contracts: Lucic, Russell, and Sekera. Unless they get rid of one or two of those, they are out of the big fishy free agent market for years.

    Delete the awful contracts of Milan Lucic and Kris Russel and the Oilers magically have enough cap space to keep both players.

    Yes, and those reasons were bad at the time those trades were made. The organization turned a premiere, top 5, future Hart-winning left wing and a very good first line scoring winger in to a second pairing defenseman and a third line checking center. Again, there's lessons to be learned there.

    Moving on from the Oilers past trades

    So now...how's that Erik Karlsson trade going with the sad-sack Senators?

    Sens have no vested intrest to move Karlson anytime soon. I'd opine if Lucic and maybe someone else for Karlson might be a good short term deal for the Oilers.

    ^^ Exactly.

    I wonder if Nicholson is having 2nd thoughts over Chiarelli. I know I am.

    Good deal for the Oilers for sure. Ottawa wants no part of Lucic though. He doesn't help with their rebuild.

    Lucia is trapped cap space, locked in for the duration of that awful, awful contract.

    I think the Lucic contract is the worst Oilers history.

    ^ Oilers would still have to continue with Lucic's salary wouldn't they?

    Oilers might have Scotty Upshall in the line up if all goes well. Connor is excited by it.

    If Lucic is traded his contract goes with him, I think. Upshall is 35 Oct 7 and averages 10 goals a season. Role player, penalty killer.

    ^ Thanks for clearing that up for me. Lucic might fit in well with another team but not at that price.

    Check out TSN.ca. Should we be calling it the "Toronto Sports Network?" All NHL stories on there now feature the Leafs ONLY!!! Wtf?!!!!!!

    Heh, it's been like that for as long as I can remember. I was actually just listening to TSN1260 at lunch, and even the guys on the radio were saying they were glad that McDavid didn't go to Toronto, are not looking forward to constantly hearing/seeing wall to wall coverage on Tavares etc. Even people on TSN are aware of it. That's what happens when a single city is nearly 20% of the entire country.

    Too some degree its like this with Primetime sports with Bob McCown. Though to be fair to bobcat, they cover the national all sports scene as best they can. They had the coach of the Winnipeg jets on earlier this week and the big contract Blake Wheeler signed for.

    not to be overly picky but the city is about 8% of the entire country and the metro region about 16%... (just picky, not overly picky ).

    having said that, i'm not sure it's about the size of the population as much as it's about where the reporters are. if you were to look at the print or magazine or television coverage in northern alberta and you lived in drayton valley or white court or high level or athabasca or st. paul etc., you'd probably feel the same way about all of the coverage being edmonton centric. i don't even think it's that intentional as much as it is "out of sight/out of mind".

    Except, in the good old Excited States of Uhmurikka, the networks still cover the Tennessee Titans, Ol' Miss, Green Bay Packers ...etc.

    One of the reasons I stopped watching baseball is when the CBC decided that no one in English-speaking Canada would ever want to watch the Montreal Expos when they could instead be treated to the amazing centre-of-the-known universe TORONTO Blue Jays.

    This from the network whose mandate is to unite Canada.....

    Max Pacioretty is headed to Las Vegas. In return for the captain and left winger, the Habs get forwards Tomáš Tatar, 27, prospect Nick Suzuki, 19, and a second-round pick in 2019. .

    Karlsson traded to San Jose

    After a long summer of speculation, the Ottawa Senators have traded captain Erik Karlsson to the San Jose Sharks.
    The return includes several picks and prospects. In exchange for Karlsson, the Senators receive four players — forward Chris Tierney, defenceman Dylan DeMelo, and forward prospects Josh Norris and Rudolfs Balcers — as well as a first-round draft pick (2019 or 2020) and a second-round pick in 2019. If the Sharks miss the playoffs in 2018-19, that first-rounder will be in 2019; otherwise, it’s a 2020 first-round pick that will go to Ottawa.

    The Sharks also acquired forward prospect Francis Perron in the trade.

    Not to be too picky but if you subtract the population of Quebec the population of the golden triangle would be about 32% of TSN’s market.

    Poor Erik will have to live in the beautiful Bay Area of California now. Some people have all the luck. Hope his ankle has healed. He could really help the sharks. According to PC Edmonton failed to make his trade to list or we could have gotten him.
