After tonight's game, Oilers demote:

Caleb Jones (who looked decent)
Grayson Downing
Joey LaLeggia
Ryan Mantha

Also on waivers for the purpose of reassignment:
Mitch Callahan
Keegan Lowe

Here is the chance for everyone in the league to show how astute a summer pickup Lowe was and add him to their rosters...sure would be sad to separate him from the family like that though...

I also agree that Jones looked pretty good. Much like my opinion of Yamamoto, he will be better served with being sent down.
I posted yesterday that, depending on this dev down there I can see him moving up the pecking order sooner than later though.



Games left that I have to see Kris Russell in an Oilers jersey=398

Burke will claim Lowe and try to use him as ransom for an arena? Or at the very least, he can just do it out of spite and we can finally get that barn fight.

Nothing surprising about the cuts. I am kind of surprised P. Russell and Rattie are still around. Both have been OK. Russell looks like he might be a 4th liner. I'm stunned Fayne is still there. Though from what I have read he's been just OK, he's don'e nothing to say he's any better. McLellan likes his dmen to be aggressive defensively and that doesn't mean you have to crush guys. So he won't make the team. I see him being behind Simpson, Auvitu and Stanton for call ups. For all the puck moving ability he has, I don't see Auvitu making the team. I keep reading about his adventures in the defensive end and how passive he is defensively.

No Cups

Todays cuts

Patrick Russell
Nick Ellis
Dillon Simpson
Ty Rattie

I didn't mind Simpsons game. Just too many D on the roster. No suprise with the others. Wouldn't be shocked if Ellis got a game or two in as an Oiler this year though.

I wanted a longer look at Ellis because LB was quite shaky in the game with the jets. However they minds know better than me, so be it.


The very definition of insanity is doing the exact same thing expecting different results.

Generally Disappointed.

Ty Rattie may never be more than a Junior and AHL scorer.

In some sense though you think he'd have to be just a top 6 guy getting minutes. He did play 13 minutes at the game I went to here in Calgary and looked pretty decent.
