PRE-GAME RANT

Well, the trade deadline came and went without too much action on the Oilers front, but a big trade was made today for us… Tom Gilbert to the Wild for defenseman Nick Schultz. The stats guys are criticizing this one. Looks like Schultz’s Corsi and such isn’t the hottest. To this I say, just watch the game. Much of what Schultz bring is what his supporters say are “intangibles”. The Wild players were upset to see him go, as was Michael Russo, beat writer for the Star Tribune. Sounds like this is a trade that could benefit both sides. Really, I just suggest everyone wait this one out before deciding. Corsi has made some bad D look brilliant, and some good D look not so brilliant. It doesn’t always tell the story, although I think stats can help at times.

Have your say on our poll on the sidebar.

    Jones in, Paajarvi out

    wouldn’t MPS have to be ‘sent down’ for today in order to play in the AHL playoffs? which would explain why he is out
