The Edmonton Oilers announced Sunday morning that Sam Gagner will be out indefinitely after suffering a broken jaw in preseason play against Vancouver on Saturday night. Gagner suffered the injury on a high stick from Canucks’ forward Zack Kassian.

Music to my ears. Would have been nicer had it occurred on a cleaner play, but I don't mind him playing a little meaner.

In any case, any piece of misfortune for the Coilers is a good bit of news IMO. :D
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

If there is a team softer than the Canucks in our division, it is the Oilers.

The Weise and Kassian plays are being looked at by the league. HF boards posters are up in arms about how Kassian high sticked Gagner on purpose. IMO he brutally missed the hit which threw him off balance causing him to wave his stick. If high stick supp. discipline cases are based on recklessness than it should be a fine/suspension, if it is based on intent like Keith on Carter last year then it should be no more than a fine. I don't give a crap about the Weise hit on Hall, Hall cut to the middle with his head down and he was crunched, it's not the first or last time that will happen to him.

Who on the Oilers can deliver retribution for anything? Brown went after Weise for the Hall hit and Weise beat him easily.

lol nothing will happen, all accidental.
However IF anything happens I hope it's Weise to get a fine or suspension, zero loss to us. haha

Hall plays like a lil bitch hah, dude is bound to get knocked bad eventually.

I really think only the Ducks and Kings are tougher than Vancouver and Anaheim is questionable. The Sharks, Yotes, Flames and Coilers aren't tough teams whatsoever.
Tell me how my ass tastes.

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun
As reported elsewhere, one year, $1 M for Mason Raymond with Leafs. Good deal for the Leafs


Good for Raymond.

I don't understand why they would sign Raymond and left Franson unsigned. It would be interesting if Franson is signed an offer sheet. Nonis will have no choice but trading Liles+ for cap space.

If Nonis can manage to sign Franson to a contract for less than $1.9m, yes, it might be a good deal.

At this point, the Leafs are moving on from Franson. Nothing good is coming from this holdout from Franson.

He's a nice player, but no team will offer-sheet him. That almost never happens.

It's about what he's worth so "great" may be an overestimate of his value
