Dustin Brown is now rumored to be available, and the Oilers are a player..

Alright, here’s my post on what players are out there for the Oilers to pick up, as well as who we have available. Discuss your rumors here, and feel free to post about any successful trades and such in comments here too (also feel free to point out anything significant I’ve missed).

Oilers needs:
Goaltending – Nikolai Khabibulin and Devan Dubnyk won’t cut it.
Mobile, multi-faceted, big minute defenseman (who couldn’t use one of those?).
Bottom six depth players.
Argument for another top-six forward if Hemsky is traded.

PRE-GAME RANT

So the Oilers face off vs. their old 80s rivals, the Broad Street Bullies. The Flyers have a hell of a team this year (as with recent years), so it should prove to be a tough game for the Oilers. However, the Oilers seem to play their best against the tougher opponents. They’ve had a tough time of stringing games together though, so we’ll see how this one goes.

No real lineup changes tonight for the Oilers.

Monday Morning Standings

When does Mad Men start again?

Oiler News

– Gagner still lighting the lamp, 3 points in the game last night to bring his February to a respectable 18 points in 9 games.
– Renney still feeling the post-concussion symptoms. The league really needs to look at fighting/head shots in order to cut down on this.
– O’Marra was traded for an offensive AHL defenseman.
– Hemsky looking good again, just in time for him to be shipped out for a shitty return (seriously people, we should want to keep NHL talent on the team). Although, one of the MSM asshats was saying that he’s considering a 2 year deal which would be cherry (as yeah, even I recognize this hasn’t been his greatest year).
– Kruger got a win!
– Eberle still awesome.

League News

– Tampa has started the fire sale, trading Downie for a Quincey, then turning around and flipping Quincey for a 1st round pick (and a prospect I heard)
– Montreal traded Gill to Nashville for a kid that now has way too much hype on him.
– Tampa traded Kubina to Philly for a bunch of picks, and Dallas traded Grossman to Philly for a bunch of picks.
– Comrie retired. Looks like he’ll have to spend some more time with Duff.
– James Neal got extended for 6 years and 30 mil.
– No surprises on the latest player poll.

PRE-GAME RANT

I hesitantly call this a Battle of Alberta. The Flames have been kicking our asses for quite a while now. It would be nice to finally win one. I’m not really confident that happens tonight, but who knows.

Hemsky and Paajarvi seem to be forming some chemistry together. That might be what finally pulls each of them out of their respective funks. So if anything, I can hope for some good individual efforts tonight. Sorry for the somber pre-game rant. It’s getting difficult to watch these two teams play each other. I’ll still watch though, as I do every game, but my expectations are low.

PRE-GAME RANT

I think this should permanently be our GDT pic for Vancouver games. Anyways, the Canucks are fresh off spanking the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-2 last night. The Oilers have miraculously played fairly well and kept it close against the Canucks this season. However, I’ll predict a slow, painful, merciless death at the hands of the Canucks tonight.

Not a lot of pre-game news out there yet, so not much to write here. I don’t believe Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will be returning for this one. There is a good chance that Peckham will be back tonight though, which would be great (well, I may be in the minority there.. but I still like Peckham a fair bit). If he’s back, Cam Barker definitely should be the guy sitting.

No word on a starter just yet.
