The Edmonton Oilers managed a 5-2 victory last might against the Vancouver Canucks but woke up this morning to find out centre Sam Gagner will be gone for the foreseeable future with a broken jaw.

Craig MacTavish pulled the trigger on a trade yesterday afternoon and I, for one, thinks it’s a great deal for The Edmonton Oilers.They packaged up a pick (who cares) and a player who they hoped could be a top six forward for a legitimate top six forward.  What’s not to love about that deal???  Continue reading »
