Oh Jeebus. Oilers get Jack Hughes.

:scowl:
Or maybe they give us a 1st for Tanev
That is a trade I could see happening. Oilers 1st for either Tanev or Edler. Something along those lines make sense for both sides.
I doubt it, it'll be another lotto year in Edmonton, no way do they part with their 1st.

The only way I could see it is similar to Duchene, optional 1st either this year or next.

If Edmonton will trade their 1st this year outright, I'd be okay with throwing some extra to get it.

I wanted both Ladd and Brouwer at reduced term and cap hit but I can see why you would leave that out.
You wanted Brouwer for “4 years at $4.25M"... and he got 4 years at $4.5M. :eh:

(recall me digging up that post in the Bountiful thread 2 weeks ago)

It was a horrible buy-it-out contract at $4.5M X 4 and it would have been a horrible buy-it-out contract at $4.25M X 4.

"reduced term and cap hit"... come on! :D

And look…

I would take Lucic at $6M until he is 34 years old over Eriksson at the same price until he is 37.
I probably would as well Meds but he didn't want to play here, same with Andrew Ladd.

I don't mind Eriksson, he's a good player and a solid two way guy. Sure the term all of the top line guys got is a bit long, but that's what it takes to land a big fish on July 1. A Brouwer or a Mcginn on top of Loui would have been a good day for Ignitowski.
To summarize, two years ago you loved the then-fresh signings of Eriksson, Lucic, Ladd, Brouwer, and Mcginn.

(and you were on record as wanting Jimmy to SPEND SPEND SPEND that summer on those particular UFAs)

I don't wanna be "that guy" :look: but you always rub the Dude's nose in it and then DENY DENY DENY when he returns the favour.

As an aside, I believe my good buddy Meds the Giant was the only poster criticizing the Loui signing on signing day...

Lol at Kesler challenging Johansen to a fight from 1000 miles away. RJ stepped on his stick in that scrap but Rk being the chicken shit that he is thinks he somehow won his first ever fight
Kesler resides inside Mr Johansen's head, it's hilarious the number he's done on the big schmuck over the last couple of years! :lol:

And come on, Kess isn't exactly a chicken shit nor a lousy scrapper...

And unlike yourself I can admit when management or I have fucked up. Can you? Nope not at all. That’s why you are a joke. You think Elmer has been error free during his time as GM. Keep on keeping on. Has he made any mistakes in your opinion?

Who, RK17 or yours truly? :look:

And why, just this past season RK17 won fights over Matthew Tkachuk, Jonathan Toews, and Ryan Johansen!

RKs the prick dude. You know i dont get all pissy about much in here lol...let alone that. Just glad to see you made it back from bible camp (or your visit to the Creston colony)

Cant say much about those fights but if the RK vs RJ fight is scored as a win for cryin Ryan then they dont have much credibility do they

Those three fights were within a 9 week span, starting 2 days after he returned from major hip surgery.

Kess can handle himself just fine.

Butt ass you know that's a secondary part of RK17's game.

Job One: Drive the opposition completely insane, throw them off their game.

Ryan Kesler just flat out PWNS people and I know a part of you still loves him for that Danny! :wink:

Those three wins were pretty weak scraps. He ain’t exactly Iginla or Shanahan with the mitts off. More like Katy Perry
