Trade Tree: How the Senators acquired the pick used on Erik Karlsson

Trade Tree: How the Senators acquired the pick used on Erik Karlsson

At the time I’m writing this, Erik Karlsson hasn’t been traded. Yet. Karlsson has been traded once before. Sort of. It just happened a long time ago. “What are you talking about?” you say? “The Ottawa Senators drafted Karlsson and he’s been with them ever since!” 31 Thoughts: The Podcast Sportsnet’s newest podcast is a weekly deep dive into the biggest hockey news in the world.

Oilers Gameday vs Colorado: 59 Down, 23 To Go

Oilers Gameday vs Colorado: 59 Down, 23 To Go

The Oilers take to the Rogers Place ice tonight, hosting the Colorado Avalanche for the final time this season. After a brief respite from the losing (winning one in Denver last weekend) the Oilers are back on their bullshit, losing 3-2 in regulation (after being up 2-0) to the Bruins on Tuesday night. Today, well… The Oilers are 2-7-1 in their last 10, while the Avalanche are a respectable 5-5-0. Unless Connor McDavid goes supernova, this is probably going to the Avs. Keys to the Game Edmont

Michael Cammalleri, Yohann Auvitu, and Mark Fayne are all unrestricted free agents.

Thursday Morning Hot Links: Gold Medal

Thursday Morning Hot Links: Gold Medal

Hello everyone, today we have a few links. To start off, David Staples asserts that the Oilers should bench Patrick Maroon until he’s traded. It’s a bit of a hot take, and something that is never going to happen, although it does make sense. (Edmonton Journal) Mark Letestu is under the impression that he’s getting traded. Also I didn’t know he had that many points in the playoffs last year. Also interesting that he doesn’t plan on bringing his kids if he’s traded. I understand not
