The Edmonton Oilers have signed veteran forward Carl Corrazzini. I don’t know if he’s on the “50 Man List” but the Oilers signed him instead of Springfield and that must put him higher up on the pecking order.
Also, this from Kevin Prendergast courtesy the morning fishwrap: “He’s not very big, but he can fly and he can score. He gives us more depth and should make us a better team in Springfield. And if we run into injury problems, he certainly wouldn’t be a guy that we would be afraid to call up.”
It looks to me like the Oilers are intent on delivering a better team to Springfield and that a guy like Rob Schremp may not be in the AHL come fall. The Falcons now have enough scoring depth to have one or more of Schremp, Brule or Potulny make the big club and still manage a decent first line.
Corazzini finished last AHL season with 80gp, 24-36-60 totals and in a tie for 34th overall in league scoring. The top Falcons point-getter last year was Sugartits with 78gp, 23-53-76 (in a flat-footed tie with Jeff Tambellini for 7th overall).
