Knew Klef shoulda picked the cyborg arms instead of just getting shoulder surgery. So dumb.

Is that before or after the inevitable staph infection?

Before and after. It’ll go broken finger, staph infection, training injury.

... don't. even. joke ... icon_eek

Caleb looked OK, had the mobility, we'll see if his brain can switch from AHL to NHL speeds.. I'm looking forward to seeing how he does.

Gravel has been a nice surprise, he's playing quite well, and better than that he seems to be improving, which make sense when you think about all the time he's missed in development due to his illness the last few years.

P. Chiarelli math.. T. Hall = A. Larsson, Yak= bag o'pucks, K. Russell = $4.1 M+NMC, G. Reinhart= M. Barzal + A. Beauvillier

As soon as they said that Klefbom was hurt and had to go back to Edmonton immediately to get it checked, I assumed it was surgery and 6-8 weeks. If there is a guy that will get a major, long term injury on the Oilers, it's Klefbom. I think Klefbom will be one of those guys who for as long as he is an Oiler, you will ALWAYS have to count on him missing at least 1.5 months worth of time every year. You just know that if he was ever traded, he would go on an iron man streak.

Ken Hitchcock provides an update on Klefbom's injury

https://www.nhl.com/oilers/news/blog-hitchcock-provides-klef bom-update/c-303795664?tid=281885062

"I think the time frame, looking right now, it looks like it's a little bit quick to ask him to play before that (All-Star) break," Hitchcock said. "And then the break is 10 days and he's going to be able to skate a lot.

"Ideally, with those last three games we were kind of hoping we would catch a break but it doesn't look like it right now. Looks like we'll have to wait until the max (time frame)."

Here's hoping he gets back right after the All-Star break. The guy is brittle, but when he is healthy, he's the Oilers' best value contract on Defense.

Thanks Gabby!

Interested to see what happens with the rest of the D group when he returns.

Does Jones just go back to Bakersfield?
Pending Petrovic’s injury, I assume concussion(?), does he go to IR?
Does Manning get waived for purpose of reassignment? (Hahah)
Does the incumbent GM move a D man in a trade?



2016: We need to get heavier, and we need a defenseman!

2018: We need to get faster, and we need a defenseman!

Week 5 begins today.

This is going to be Chia's greatest acquisition for the 2019 trade deadline.
I can see how this turns out in about 2 weeks.

Don Sweeney: "Hey Chia... Have you heard of this Klefbom kid?"

Peter Chiarelli: "I didn't draft him, so I don't know a lot about him."

Don Sweeney: "I can get him on your team in 2 days... All I need in return is Jesse Puljujärvi"

Peter Chiarelli: "That's a pretty good deal for a top 2 d-man. How about I throw in a 2nd round pick as well." (Chia's thought bubble - I finally won a trade. The fans and management are going to be so happy that I finally got a top d-man)
