Working on an extension with the Oilers..

From the Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch, via Twitter:

The Oilers and D Andy Sutton are discussing a one-year extension. He’s not sure he wants to be a UFA and likes Edmonton. #Oilers

I have to say I’m pretty excited about that. Despite the mystifying coaching decision to pull him out of the Oilers line up, Andy Sutton has been one of this year’s few bright spots. At his age too, a one-year deal is all that makes sense for us. For a team that has a bit of a history of giving aging players too lengthy of a contract, I’m happy to hear that a one-year deal is being worked on. Get it done, and for god sakes, don’t pull him out of the lineup anymore, Renney.
