OK, really, today wasn’t THAT good. It was good though, and I was surprised how much the Edmonton Oilers got done in a single day. This is the same crew of people that snailed their way through last off-season and did much to improve the farm team, but very little to improve the big club with Colin Fraser, Jim Vandermeer and Kurtis Foster being the “big” additions.

Taylor Chorney returns to OKC. Take that, you show-boating, fastest skater…
Chorney, 23, was recalled to the Oilers on December 10 and played in six games collecting two assists.
The 6’0”, 193-pound Thunder Bay, Ontario native has appeared in 40 games with Oklahoma City scoring three goals and adding 12 assists.
I would think that means Jim Vandermeer is back. Never thought I’d be saying this, but, thank god!
As per TSN site:
I like this deal. I didn’t mind O’Sullivan, and it looks like his buyout is still going on, but Vandermeer is a serviceable d-man who has experience and is tough. Plus he makes 600k less. He will make it so that our younger D have more time in the AHL to get experience.
I like it. As Lowetide says, we just got an actual NHL’er.
Update: As i just read in the comments, Moreau has just been claimed by Columbus (details here) and cause I’ve just been perusing TSN, McKenzie says that Souray could be headed to St. Louis with Brewer coming back (details here).
Good for Moreau, as I’ve always been a fan and he gets to play this final year. I’ve always liked Howson too, so I bet he can get a good year out of him.
As for the Souray rumor…I don’t mind it. Brewer can play, and while he is expensive he is a mil cheaper. If it works out it will be better than I expected on the return for Souray.
Tambellini is going to get a great off-season report card mark.
