    Good.

    What's the condition?

    Sadder but Wiser
    Kelly Buchberger slowly shook his head as they pulled the trigger.

    Dany Heatley

    Making space to bring in an AHL vet? They still need a few to be competitive.

    Jay McKee to the Pens for 800k.

    Staios at 2.7 million looks better every day.

    Courtesy Brownlee at ON:

    "Riley Nash is way bigger (20 pounds or so) and stronger than last season. Looks pretty good". Don't like digging through those comment threads myself so thought I'd post it here. Should be a different player with some mass on him, I imagine.

    So we're purging the previous regime's organizational favourites and keeping the ones they hated?

    Liam Reddox, your days are numbered.

    great move.

  8. Greg MC says:

    Why would Jersey want him?

  9. Lowetide says:

    Depth player for their AHL team, he might have done something against NJ's farm team in the AHL that impressed their management.

    Liam Reddox, your days are numbered.

    Agreed…at least at the NHL level.

  11. Lowetide says:

    I think Reddox will play in the NHL again this year, and it's not clear to me that he won't have a career.

    He's been drowning in the NHL so far, but kids struggle until the games slows down for them and they begin to find their way.

    There's every chance will see in him the same things that MacT found useful.

    Agreed.

    If the Heatley extravaganza pans out like Tambo wants it to, he'll need the bottom half of the lineup to come as cheaply as possible.

    Now on that point, is Chopper your next Exit Ramper? :)

    RE: Moreau

    I don't want to jump ahead of LT here, but I can't see Moreau leaving the organization. He adds physical edge and has a track record of playing well against tough players that evaporated a bit this year. That said, he played with some funny linemates too, and he probably deserves a second chance.

  14. Doogie2K says:

    So he'll be getting more top-line time, then?

  15. DanMan says:

    I think Reddox might have another cup of coffee or two in the show. But there is so much talent coming out of the draft these days, I think, like another MacT fave, Toby Peterson, his NHL days are numbered.

  16. NBOilerFan says:

    Don't really know much about Sestito, seems like a good contract dump to me.

    What overdue development project is next out the door?

  17. Jonathan Willis says:

    I think, like another MacT fave, Toby Peterson, his NHL days are numbered.

    Except of course that Petersen spent all of last season in the NHL with Dallas.

  18. Master Lok says:

    DanMan: I think, like another MacT fave, Toby Peterson, his NHL days are numbered.

    Like JWillis said, except that Petersen played last season in the NHL. Entirely in the NHL, no AHL.

    2008-09 NHL Dallas Stars 57gp 4g 7a 11pts 14 pims

    So once again…

    Does he though? Smyth logged the lion's share of the tough minutes on the left side since 02/03. Fo a couple stretches he had the gig with Reasoner (before he smoked his knees) and Pisani (pre-colitis). And by eye and by the numbers it was the center and the RW driving the results.

    The MGM line was the last time he had that gig in fact (as opposed to in Bob Stauffer's imagination). And when Hecht took over his spot on that line in 01/02 they looked terrific. They had the puck regularly penned in the offensive end Lapointe/Draper/Maltby style PLUS they created scoring chances.

    Nobody is arguing that Moreau is a great guy. The question is "How much is greatguyness worth in the NHL?". It would seem to be a lot in the eyes of Oilers management.
