Oilers Quick Hits..

By , April 17, 2013 4:57 pm


So I had an actual work day today, and missed the goings on with the Oil today.

One of them, was an apology from Kevin Lowe for his comments about there being “two types of fans”. I’m pretty sure that anyone offended by his words the other day are going to still be just as offended.

The other was the signing of Yale forward Andrew Miller. This makes me wish I watched the NCAA Frozen Four, but I completely forgot about this. Ah well. It’s a one year deal and I don’t see any problem with this, although we really should be concerned about the number of contracts we have and not waste them on just anyone. The one thing I’ve noticed is this guy is quite small at 5’8, 170lbs. Beyond that, I know nothing about him yet.. but will do some digging.

Justin Schultz was also named the AHL defenseman of the year, which is impressive considering how he only played 34 games there. I’m pretty surprised he didn’t win rookie of the year too. But hey, defenseman of the year is pretty much as good or better.

    Apparently Andrew Miller’s “NHL size” is 5’10… the NHL measures you while standing on a box.

    Kidding.. I suppose he could have grown a couple inches.. HockeyDB is known to be out of date on their measurements.

    Never a bad thing signing a Frozen Four winner but i think he will be seeing nhl action in 3 years or more

    I couldn’t find any details, but it was a 1-year ELC, so I kind of figured that it’s more likely he will see some NHL action sooner than later, actually. If they had no intention to, they likely would have just signed him to an AHL contract.
