And... now no one cares what the Oilers did.  Suban for Weber, holy schnikies.

Oilers got it hard. A top 10 winger in the league for a guy who has potential but is still a prospect? Every GM in the league must be thinking they would offered more for Hall.

Apparently Subban was heavily disliked by his teammates and coaches, kind of an arrogant loudmouth. I love him as a player though, very special, treat to watch, every little movement he does is so powerful and agile he is almost impossible to check. That said if there is any guy I love as much as him it's weber. Just a fantastic player, top 5 damn in league. His cannon slapper and its reliability helps the dismal PP more than Subbban too. This trade makes Montréal better now but carries more medium term risk.

 Bergevin stated a year ago he wants to make the Habs a tough team to play against. Adding shaw now weber does that. I can see them going very hard for Ladd now too. He is turning Montréal into a west cont team.

I don't think a lot of teams were offering better than NJ did for Hall in terms of what Edmonton needed. There was no way Edmonton was going to win a Hall trade (he was basically guaranteed to be the best player in any kind of deal; hell, only two LWers have out-scored him in the last couple years -- and that's if you count Ovi as LW instead of RW). A lot fo teams could have made a better offer on Hall.. but that would have meant bringing in forwards and defense-men who play the left side. Edmonton needed defense-men who played the right side (going into today we actually only had one; Mark Fayne, who were RHD). As such, the Oilers got fucked.. but it may end up improving the team because the best forwards in the league are meaningless if your D is trash (as Edmonton has seen for the past five years). Larsson isn't as bad as Speedy makes him out to be; but he is unproven. There is definite risk there. Chiarelli was under the gun already, but now he is very much hanging with his job on the line.

Still, the Oilers are likely to bring in Lucic on the 1st, and may bring in Demers in addition to that. Further, there is likely a trade that'll happen considering we have 11-13 LHD that are NHL capable.

Still...

Fucking Oilers.

As for the Subban trade.. dumb trade, but only because of the age situation. Weber is a great player, but on the wrong side of the curve. Subban, meanwhile, will likely only improve his game playing the the defense factory that is Nashville.

At least Stamkos stuck his finger in the eye of the Toronto media by staying in Tampa at 8.5 mil per year.

I really think I would rather be an Oilers fan than a Canucks fan right now. Jim Benning is just an utter and complete apocalyptic disaster. And you could always go back and watch highlights from the 80s =)

It is generally accepted by Oiler fans that the last 6-7 years (the period during which we've been absolutely terrible), and the period from ~'93 to '08 (the period in which we were semi-competitive but not really due to financial reasons only) are all the fault of the '80s and the Hockey Gods punishing us for that team (and unnecessary dismantling thereof).

Thankfully, I was alive to watch and enjoy at least the latter part of the '80s team (and saw the rest growing up on tape -- tapes I still have, actually).

Those teams are what got me into hockey. 99 remains my favorite sports figure of all time.
