Greatings Oiler fans

Hello Oil nation! I’m happy to say I’ll be providing you with insight and opinions on all things Oilers.
Growing up in the 80’s I was instantly hooked on everything orange blue and white, some of my favourite memories as an early fanatic were racing home from soccer to watch the Oil finish off another pretender, the Oilers of the 1990’s, like my adolescence were a little shaky but from their we have blossomed into what you see today, a young fast exciting team on the rise.

My intentions are to cover my writing abilities with a lot of information, passion and opinion, so without further ado, I’m going to jump right into the mix. With next years cap announced and UFA/RFA season coming soon, now is a perfect time a look at the current roster situation as we ramp into summer.

So here’s where we sit today:

Forwards:
Hemsky: 4.1 /Horc: 3.6 /Penner: 4.25
Nilsson: 1.833 /Gagner: 1.625 /Cogliano: 1.133
Torres: 2.25/ ? /Pisani: 2.5
Moreau: 2/Brodziak: .497/?

Defense
Souray: 5.4/Glibert: 4
Staios: 2.7/Smid: .886
Green: 1.15/ Grebshkov: 1.5

Goaltending:
Garon: 1.1
Roloson: 3.667

Current cap hit: 41.047

Current cap: 56.7

Current space: 15.653

UFA’s:
Reasoner
Glenncross

RFA’s
Stoll
Pitkanen
Stortini
Pouliot

For the first time in years, the Edmonton Oilers will be going into a new season with the same core as last year….. A very promising sign.
Assuming we want to bring Glencross, Stortini and Pitkanen back, the Oilers are sitting on too many quality NHL’ers….a good problem to have. So where do we go from here Oiler fans? Who do you want to see added or removed from the team? Any UFA’s/RFA’s out their that interest you? Check back as the free agent season begins for an update as to which direction Lowe seems to be sailing the ship.
