Dennis: “Maybe – and most likely – I’m seeing more from this rumor than what there really is considering today’s a terrible news day with 71 down for the year.Still, Katz is probably a guy who believes you can solve most anything with money and if Lowe’s cell phone indicates he’s in Europe and we know for a fact we’ve had interest in 68 in the past, would anyone bet against Katz throwing around some dollars to convince Jagr’s KHL team to loan us Jagr and thus we find our way around the waiver wire? Or maybe there’s another way we can get him over here.I’m not really swayed by a “bogus” refrain; there’s been too much past interest from the Oilers and Staples source has been reputable enough that something’s going on here somewhere.”
Oilers General Manager Steve Tambellini told 630 CHED’s Dan Tencer that he wasn’t willing to get into details on the specific rumour. “Are we always trying to improve our team? Yes. Am I gonna comment on things that are speculative? No, I’m not gonna do that. There’s going to be an issue a day I think on things like this.”
There’s something going on. I think Staples has something here.
