Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli on the Erik Karlsson trade: “I won’t lie. When he came to our division, there was an expletive coming out of my mouth. He’d be nice to have here, but we weren’t on his list. It was a non-starter.”



Wonder how much of the reason we weren't on the list was just location, and how much was the decade+ of obvious to everyone mismanagement.


This is exactly how a failed manager would think. We didn't make his list? Better not even try to give him or his agent a call and explain that the best defenseman in the world could be paired with the best forward in the world.

It's a NMC. Even if you aren't on his list, he can waive it...dare you try to make a convincing case.


We couldn't afford him anyways due to the mishandling of all the $2.5mm players making >$4mm.

The president thinks he has the ideal male body.
It's hard to disagree that he has the ideal male body.

Me reading Karlsson traded to SJ: Ohhhh fuuudge!

Me the Adult: [narrating] Only I didn't say "Fudge." I said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the "F-dash-dash-dash" word!

Oilfans: [stunned] *What* did you say?

Me the child: Uh, um...

Oilfans: That's... what I thought you said. Get in the car. Go on!

Me the Adult: [narrating] It was all over - I was dead. What would it be? The guillotine? Hanging? The chair? The rack? The Chinese water torture? Hmmph. Mere child's play compared to what surely awaited me.



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

Generally Disappointed.

Why is having Karlsson in the Pacific considered a bad thing?

They play us 5 times. They play our Pacific opponents what ... 30 times?

We were never going to the compete for winning the division, but I see no issues with a powerhouse team dismantling our wildcard competition.

It's less about Karlsson coming to the division and more about Karlsson, Pacioretty, Neal, Stastny, and Kovalchuk collectively coming to the division. But Kyle Brodziak shall be feared.


Clean house or bust

And has anybody signed a more fearsome back up goalie than us? I think not.



You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.
