    ^The former Air Canada Center is owned by Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment which also owns the Toronto Raptors NBA team and Toronto FC of Major League Soccer (as well a few condos etc). MLSE is an unholy alliance of Rogers, Bell, and Larry Tanenbaum.

    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.

    That’s passed now. Forget about those two.

    Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.

    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.

    Now that Stampede is over will the Flames be making an announcement ( move to Houston)
