Speaking of Oksanen, he has been mentioned by some to be among the top college free agents for years now but no mention of any teams interested in him at all among the main stream media.

Its freaking weird how quiet it is on this front. Really weird.

I mean Caggiula says i'm gonna take a month to decide and we still get rumors left and right.

Oksanen is like radio silence.

I would guess Oksanen becomes a Flame then. Flames have to be one of the more quieter teams in the league I think regarding rumors.

I ran into Travis St. Denis' older brother Kyle in WalMart today. He said Travis is in discussion with a few different teams, including the Flames, and them dirty Canucks. As I recall he was a Canucks fan growing up, so I have no doubt he is keen on signing there. He isn't 100% sure, but he thinks it's all coming down to numbers on the contract.

#Canucks sign G Michael Garteig to a 1-year deal. The 24-year old just completed his senior season with Quinnipiac University

Difficult to handicap Caggiula sweepstakes, but sense is it's down to VAN or EDM. Believe PHI, CHI, PIT, NYR and OTT are all out. We'll see.

Hearing word that VAN & OTT have been told they will not be Drake Caggiula's destination. That puts the spotlight on EDM.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
Drake Caggiula is, in fact, bound for EDM.

Maybe he's expecting an extreme level of rejuvenation for when he leaves Edmonton.

Edmonton really needs more small forwards. They are going to continue to shine.

Bob Stauffer ✔ ‎@Bob_Stauffer
On top of Drake Caggiula don't be surprised if the Oilers land another NCAA forward shortly to bolster their organizational depth...

Bob Stauffer ✔ ‎@Bob_Stauffer
...My guess is the Oilers are looking at a bigger body, who can protect the puck and create more competition

Biggest name out there that fits Stuaffer's description is Ahti Oksanen. But given how quiet it has been on the Oksanen front, I imagine a lot of teams don't see a lot of NHL potential in Oksanen.

Edmonton Oilers @EdmontonOilers
The #Oilers have agreed to terms with St. Cloud State forward Patrick Russell on a two-year, entry-level contract.

Of course, the one time I actually have some form of insider info and I'm totally out to lunch.

Its cool. You just shared what you heard.

If I had to guess, I think his family/agent was trying to put out a vibe that he had multiple NHL teams interested in him to see if one of the teams interested in him would offer a NHL contract.

Looks like that didn't happen and he just took the best AHL deal.
