GDT - Edmonton Oilers vs. San Jose Sharks

PRE-GAME RANT

Well here it is folks, the moment we’ve been waiting for – Heatley’s first game in Edmonton since he nixed the trade. The Oilers are coming off a poor showing versus the Kings on Wednesday – a 3-1 loss on home ice. The Sharks are also coming off a loss, having been hammered 7-2 by the Chicago Blackhawks in Marian Hossa’s 2009/10 season debut.

Since the failed trade, Dustin Penner has shown great success this season with a surprising 26 points in 25 games. Ladislav Smid has also been fantastic this year, having grown into a very reliable two-way defenseman. Andrew Cogliano has struggled a bit this season, but he also hasn’t been given much of a chance, spending most of the season in the bottom six. Meanwhile, Dany Heatley has 33 points in 26 games, with Joe Thornton serving up fat pucks on a platter for him on the top line. Whether the Oilers are better off without Heatley remains to be seen, but so far I’d say I’m pretty happy that deal never happened.

So two teams coming off horrible losses.. who bounces back? The way the Oilers have playing, my guess would be the sharks. But I’m hoping that the trade-bait players (Heatley excluded) want to prove that the trade should not have been made to begin with. Is that going to be enough for the Oil, sans-Hemsky?

Here’s a little something to get things going… people have been talking that SJ’s trades today freed up cash for Heatley. Anyone revisiting the old Souray to San Jose rumor again? Defencemen moved.. they have the cash for him. Granted, they BARELY have the cash for him and still have other needs. But perhaps the Oil swing a deal in which they move Souray and a player or two and pick up some bigger names in return (with the salary numbers evening out).
Just throwing some crazy ideas out there. Ultimately, I’d hate to see Souray go. But if we picked up a pretty quality player in return, however…

UPDATE: Check the Comrie rumor post for more information around Comrie. This rumor is sounding less like rumor and more like fact now, folks. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program…. the San Jose rumors:

Here’s a little something to get things going… people have been talking that SJ’s trades today freed up cash for Heatley. Darren Dreger’s twitter says “talks have gone cold” between San Jose and Ottawa, however. Anyone revisiting the old Souray to San Jose rumor again? Continue reading 'Unfounded rumor time…'»
