3 up, 3 down…

By , January 23, 2012 8:14 am

The Oilers recalled Lennart Petrell, Teemu Hartikainen and Taylor Chorney from the Oklahoma City Barons. In turn, Ryan O’Marra, Josh Green and Colten Teubert get to escape this shit show for a bit.

In other news, the Edmonton Sun is reporting that Steve Tambellini should be getting a contract extension… only the details need to be worked out. This is of course based on the fact that he’s done such a good job of winning the reverse-standings Presidents Trophy.

O’Marra, Paajarvi called up, Brule on re-entry waivers…

Gilbert Brule has been put on recall waivers

Gilbert Brule has been put on recall waivers


The Oilers have recalled Ryan O’Marra and Magnus Paajarvi from the Oklahoma City Barons. It looks like they are also attempting to recall Gilbert Brule as well, as he has been placed on recall waivers.

Ryan O’Marra has 7 goals and 9 assists in 34 games with the Barons, and 1 assist in 3 games with the Oilers. Magnus Paajarvi has 1 goal and 8 assists in 10 games with the Barons. He struggled as an Oiler though, earning just 3 assists in 25 games. The Oilers sent him down with hopes that he could gain more ice time to work on his game a bit. With key injuries to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and now possibly Jordan Eberle, he might even get that opportunity at the NHL level.

Gilbert Brule hasn’t played at all for the Oilers this year. He has 8 goals and 10 assists in 27 games with the Barons. Should a team claim Brule off waivers, the Oilers will be on the hook for half of his salary and cap-hit (half of $1.85M, or $925k… expiring at the end of this year).

Oilers re-sign Taylor Chorney and Ryan O`Marra to one year deals

The Oilers have re-signed Ryan O’Marra and Taylor Chorney to one year deals. Details are still to come.

I actually like what we saw from Chorney last year until he got hurt. It was a short preview though, but he came on stronger last year, maybe due to development in the AHL. Ryan O’Marra will be in tough to squeeze into the lineup, so I expect he’ll play most of the year in Oklahoma City.

PRE-GAME RANT

So this game of course marks the debut of another highlty-touted prospect – Linus Omark. Both Omark and Ryan O’Marra were recalled from Oklahoma City on Wednedsay, as replacements for the injured Ales Hemsky and Shawn Horcoff.

We all know Omark from his youtube videos and even a bit this year from camp where he scored quite a pretty goal on a nice individual effort. But the question mark for him has been whether he plays for himself or for the team, so hopefully he’s learned the right answer to that question in Oklahoma City. He’s been tearing it up down there though. He’s on a point-per-game pace so far with 26 points in 26 games, and an even balance of 13 goals and 13 assists. The highlight of his North American professional career came on November 7th, 2010 in an AHL game between the Oklahoma City Barons and the Toronto Marlies. Omark led the Barons to a 7-6 victory by scoring 5 goals in the game (including a goal that tied the game at 6 with under a minute left to force the game to overtime).

O’Marra is also having a good start to his year in Oklahoma City. The big, 6’2″, 200 lb. center has 14 points in 22 games so far (1G and 13A). This isn’t his first trip to the show, however. O’Marra played 3 games last year for the Oilers in which he notched 1 assist. He only took 12 draws, but won 7 of them (58.3%). I thought he played pretty good. It’s nice seeing a big pivot on our team, for once. So I’m a bit excited to see how well he can mesh with the team too. He will likely play with Omark and Jones, if yesterday’s practice lines hold up.

Stamkos has cooled off temporarily, it would seem. He has 2 points in his last 6 games, both were assists (let’s not even talk about the games before – not pretty unless you love the Lightning or goal scoring). Even though I have him in one of the POTF pools, I’m hoping he stays cold tonight. The Lightning are still fairing OK, being 6-3-1 in their last 10. The Oilers have been pretty solid in their last 10 too, with a 6-2-2 record (wowza).

Starting goaltenders tonight appear to be Khabibulin and Ellis. The Lightning like to score goals, and Ellis apparently seems to like letting them in (dropped him like a bad habit in the pool), so I suspect this SHOULD be one of the more exciting games we’ll see this year.

I’m going to call this one a 6-5 Oilers win.

Oiler RFA’s Qualified

By , June 28, 2010 7:10 pm

Racki seems to be slacking off on the Oilers news front (moving), so I’ll have to pick up some of the slack here.

Today from the Oilers site:

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have issued qualifying offers to the following players:

Gilbert Brule
Andrew Cogliano
Jeff Deslauriers
Devan Dubnyk
Colin Fraser
Sam Gagner
Jean-Francois Jacques
Ryan O’Marra
Theo Peckham
Liam Reddox

I don’t like the fact that Pouliot didn’t get qualified, but other than that it looks pretty standard. I’m expecting deals to be announced going forward for a few of the players, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Poo gets an offer from the Oilers as an UFA for league min.
