Latest Trade Deadline Buzz
— The Edmonton Oilers were closing in on a deal with the Los Angeles Kings that would have sent Teddy Purcell and Justin Schultz to LA but the deal in the past couple hours fell through.

The Oilers then turned and shipped Purcell to the Panthers for a third round pick. Florida also acquired Jiri Hudler and Jukub Kindl.
On Schultz, Edmonton is circling back to teams that had been kicking the tires on Schultz prior to the Oilers entering into advanced talks with LA. They are contacting just about any team looking for defense, an NHL source says. The Penguins have had discussions internally about Schultz who carries a $3.9 million cap hit and is due a qualifying offer of $3.9MM after the season. Indications are Pittsburgh is now in the hunt with the price for Kris Russell being deemed too high.

Same losers on this site with same lame jokes and comments. Yawn
I love the Sam and Dustin back and forth. Two fcuking idiots who repeat the same lines over and over. I wish both of you could take a nap permanently.
What does Simply Dusty think? His analysis is simply retarted.
But I thought that we needed LESS mobile defenseman
For a 3rd
I read 4th
Apparently we just acquired Shultz
I liked Steigy and Bob talking about how no Canadian teams will be in the playoffs. Hilarious, haha
They should also mention good American teams are also led by Canadian captains and coaches
Kane is american.
Oh Kane is the captain didn’t know
Wearing a C means more than what you do on the ice? WHO KNEW!
Who gives a crap, most of these canadian coaches live in the US-so they are basically Americans
Well according to npl he gives a crap what the media said
Does Canadian team could make the playoffs?
Fleury never makes the big save :p
Fleury suckss trade him Yoda and stan
So I hate fleury now too. Haha!
Dustin, instead of repeating the same, non funny comment… Tell us all how Range Factor works
I missed the class on it, I was taking a nap.
Only player on this team I really do not like are Bennett and Lovejoy. After they’re gone next year, I really don’t know who i’ll bitch about.
After those 2 Americans are gone you can focus on Kessel
How do you feel about 0 canadian teams making the playoffs this year?
Been like that for a while but every year the cup comes to Montreal more often than it goes to Pittsburgh. Even when pens won the amount of time it was here over that summer
How many times a local Pittsburgh dude brings the cup over the summer when pens win the cup. ?
Why does that matter? They’re born in 1 city, but have to move to an american city to be successful.
Saad was here last year? What what?
That means something?
Hartnell to preds
Didnt miss Malkin at all lol
Hagelin suck, right Maloni and Sam?
Wake up sleepy, overpay for Russell if you have to and get McGinn/Parenteau. Call it a day and let’s see what the boys can do in the playoffs.
Wake up GMJR and start overpaying for mediocre players! Come on! What are you doing??
Taking a nap at St. Barnabas.
Exactly- pay for crap that will have no effect on the end outcome- meaning its pointless.
Secondary scoring has no effect on playoff outcome? Wow, who knew!
God I hope not, guys a fucking train wreck. We already hate things in Pouliots game that Schultz does just as well
Agree, Schultz sucks. And pretty funny that D’s last article a few hours ago said we have no interest in shultz….now a writer with sources and respect writes it and yup, we want schultz.
Seen you got yoda flip flopping again lol… hours after I called him out on it lol
Does Jeb Bush could become an option for president?
Tired of hearing about hamhuis. The guy didnt want to come here before so why would he now?
Signing a 4 year deal is different than being a 3.5 month rental….however he isn’t even interested in that now. Oh well, fuck him.
Regardless, its his call.
Does TIOPS could become option for extinction?
