Jacques/Stortini cut loose…

… so to speak. Neither player have been offered a qualifying offer, which makes them UFAs. I don’t see the Oilers signing either of them now, although I suppose they could try and sign Zack to a 2-way contract (he was 1-way before, which means his Q.O. had to also be 1-way). In other words, the Oil could still technically re-sign these guys again, just to a worse contract than they already had (i.e. in Katz’ pocketbook’s favor).


Oilers qualified the following RFA players: Chorney, Smid, O’Marra, Cogliano, Peckham

RFA offersheet opportunities

Offer sheet target #1: Shea Weber

Offer sheet target #1: Shea Weber

The Edmonton Journal had an article yesterday suggesting the Oilers should take a stab at signing Shea Weber to an offersheet. I don’t have to go on about it since we all know the story, but the Oilers became famous in the post-2005 CBA world for offersheets by signing Thomas Vanek to an offer sheet. When the Sabres matched, the Oilers eventually went after Dustin Penner, and successfully signed him when the Ducks decided not to match the contract.

So here are the biggest names available in this year’s RFA pool (assuming these players aren’t offered extensions before July 1st) that the Oilers could choose to target:

Shea Weber (D) – Nashville Predators
Steven Stamkos (C) – Tampa Bay Lightning
Drew Doughty (D) – Los angeles Kings

So could the Oilers sign any of these guys? Continue reading 'RFA offersheet opportunities'»

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.
