The Edmonton Oilers have called up Theo Peckham again and it looks like he’s going to get some minutes. So far in his young NHL career he hasn’t played much (7:25 and 11:19 in his two games this season, he’s -2 in each game) and the Oilers have paid in full for his presence on the ice.
Peckham is the most obvious option from Springfield and truth be told they need him on the farm (Falcons are down 2-0 and being outshot 19-3 after 1 tonight).
If I’m a betting man the Oilers make a move or two within the next 48 hours. I think they’re going to acquire an NHL defenseman and remain convinced Bill Guerin is coming to Edmonton at or before the deadline.
Ownership wants a run as much as the fans and the Oilers are in the chase with a glaring weakness and money to burn. If they don’t make a move, shame on them.
