TRAINING CAMP HOPEFUL NO. 2: TY RATTIE

The Ty Rattie signing in free agency came far earlier than expected but is a good small bet. The Oilers have a plethora of young wingers vying for playing time and Rattie has a chance to work his way to the NHL in Edmonton. His one big advantage? He’s a shooter.

CHIARELLI’S TRADES

I don’t go to Vegas often but always play the slot machines. The first time I visited, played the card tables (blackjack) and barely had time enough for the free drink. Man those folks know how to count to 21. My plan in Vegas is to bleed out slowly, and the slot machines are just my style. Peter Chiarelli is a riverboat gambler in the trade market. Not only is he unafraid to lose a trade’s value in order to correct his roster, he is willing to do it again and again as a member of

Nuge: Odds favor Arizona

If Peter Chiarelli stays true to form, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will be traded the week of June 24-30, 2018. How do I know this? Following the rule of ‘Steve Austin exits’ it only makes sense: June 29, 2016: Traded Taylor Hall to New Jersey Devils for Adam Larsson. June 22, 2017: Traded Jordan Eberle to NY...

RE 2017-18 BOB GREEN: BAKER STREET

Bob Green and his staff have a very important job over the next several years. The team is going to be trading picks and prospects for the next several deadlines in an effort to find Stanley. Green’s job is to turn picks into players, to recover from the loss of traded picks and to create a pool of value in the AHL and amateur ranks. It’s a helluva job. (Baker Street).
