The Edmonton Oilers have one space left on their 50 man roster and they have one key player to re-sign... A defenceman... A restricted free agent... A potential superstar in the making...
There are some concerns regarding the Edmonton Oilers going into the 2014-15 season.
- How will the new acquisitions turn out?
- How about that hole at center on the second line?
- Will the goaltending hold up?
- Which rookie is going to hold their own and make it past the 9 game mark?
- How far will Nugent-Hopkins and Yakupov bounce back if at all?
Those are all valid fan-worthy concerns but the one that is nagging me the most is...
Summer time has come off with a BANG for our Edmonton Oilers!
Kaiser Scorze (Leon Draisaitl) has finally arrived. Along with Teddy Purcell (At the expense of Sam Gagner.) Mark Fayne, Benoit Pouliot, Nikita Nikitin, and Keith Aulie are all in as well! All of a sudden the Oilers are starting to resemble an NHL team! An NHL team with size.
But there's one thing that hasn't been touched on and maybe it's early days yet but that no.2 center hole hasn't been addressed yet.
The Edmonton Oilers took German Superkid Leon Draisaitl with the 3rd pick overall in the 2014 NHL Entry draft.
I've bestowed upon him the name... Kaiser Scorze!
Edmonton Oilers GM Craig MacTavish completed the signing of left handed Russian defenceman Nikita Nikitin today and thus sent back the draft pick he acquired for Nick Schultz from the Columbus Blue Jackets at the most recent trade deadline.
This is the final installment of El Mocko 2014! Picks 26-30!!
