Oh god. OH GOD. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. The NHL has deemed the contract tendered to Vlad Tkachev ineligible based on the CBA. The Oilers were working under the premise that Tkachev was a CHL player as described in the CBA and could be offered a contract if undrafted. Bad news. He wasn’t. To have the full rights of a CHL player he had to play in the full CHL season rig...

Vladimir Tkachev, undersized, undrafted and as unlikely a looking prospect as one could imagine — at least when he doesn’t have a hockey stick in his slick hands — has played way into the fold of the Edmonton Oilers.

Tuesday morning was pretty decent for the Edmonton Oilers. The team got an entry-level deal done with the highly-talented Vladimir Tkachev, which meant that they were going to be able to add the 18-year-old to their prospect pool without spending a pick to acquire him. But then this happened: Initially, it seemed possible that the Oilers had slipped up on some technicality, that Tkachev was eligible to be signed and that there must be a minor problem with his contract. However, further study reveals that he may not be eligible for a contract – in fact, never was eligible for a contract – because he spent part of last season in Russia. This is what happened a year ago to Nathan W

The Edmonton Oilers are reporting that the standard player contract signed by Vladimir Tkachev today has been ruled ineligible. It is not clear where the Oilers may have differed in their deal compared to the Carolina Hurricanes and their signing of Sergey Tolchinsky. SERGEY TOLCHINSKY DEAL It is unlikely to derail the signing, but a restructuring of the deal is likely. The Oilers deal looks very similar to Tolchinsky’s, it’ll be interesting to see how Edmonton tweaks the contract to comply.

It was an eventful day for the Edmonton Oilers, as the club continues the process of choosing the final 23-man roster for the opening of the season. There are some fluid pieces to the day, so let’s run do the happenings: The Oilers signed Vladimir Tkachev to an entry-level NHL deal. The Moncton Wildcasts website says he is expected to return soon to the QMJHL team, but there are rumblings today he’ll go to Oklahoma City to play with the Barons. That would have enormous impact on his development and honestly it’s a surprise. The 50-man roster isn’t an issue, the procurement season is pretty much done (unless there’s a three-for-one out there). I’m not abso
