Well, why would Ottawa need Eberle? I don't see that, they are strong in that area.

That's what I thought, too. But the "expert" on The Fan seemed to think the two teams were working on a deal.

The Oilers need to unload a lot of salary because of upcoming contracts so bringing in a older defenseman with a higher cap hit then Eberle makes zero sense. And I doubt that the Sens would retain salary on Neon Dion to get Eberle.

I'm amazed it wasn't a spector rumor "OMG The Oilers are going to trade Eberle straight across for Karlsson because Chia is like the best GM in the league and he looks so hot when the light shines off of his baldspot. Now if you'll excuse me I'll be in my bunk.

Vroom Vroom here we go Oilers"

We needed a story to bump this back to the front page and I think this qualifies. I saw a story on Sportsnet that Lucic wants to be a GM when his career is over, I didn't think he could even spell GM never mind be one!

If he does want to be one he would probably fit right in in Edmonton with the bunch of losers they have had since Sather left.

And he fits the alumni theme.

impossible - the Flames' jerseys aren't orange, don't have a big teardrop on the front and don't represent Mulletville.

Oh, please. They are not that bad. In the grand scheme of things, it's a jersey. But given Edmonton's incurable inferiority complex and incessant cheerleading this is funny.

Chiarelli is a ballsy GM. He'll make trades like Maroon and Talbot but then make Schultz and Reinhart type trades. Good comes with the bad I guess

Jeff Veillette ✔ @JeffVeillette
The Edmonton Oilers model
1. Never scout beyond 3rd overall
2. Sell low on everybody you get
3. Pray your generational talent bails you out

Got Chia nominated for GM of the year, that award should have gone to McDavid too.

Like I said in the Expansion Draft thread last night, somehow Chiarelli failed to win the "successfully drafted Connor McDavid" award. I thought for sure that he would have been a shoe-in.

I thought they actually should have just given the award to the ball randomizer.

"And the award goes to....the ping-pong ball machine!!"

Picking up what Locke is laying down...

"And the 'Kevin Lowe Award for knowing a bit about winning, if there are any concerns' goes to...."

"The ping pong ball machine!"
