Scottie Upshall invited to Oilers Camp on PTO....

https://www.nhl.com/oilers/

..."Upshall, 34, appeared in 63 games for St. Louis last season, posting 19 points (7G, 19A), 46 penalty minutes and a -1 plus-minus rating. The native of Fort McMurray, AB, has played 759 career NHL games over 15 seasons, with Nashville, Philadelphia, Phoenix/Arizona, Columbus, Florida and St. Louis.

The 6'0", 201-pound forward has 285 career NHL points (138G, 147A), 615 penalty minutes, and a +9 plus-minus rating. Upshall also appeared in 53 playoff games, posting 13 points (5G, 8A), 66 penalty minutes and a -3 plus-minus rating. "....

can't see him making it.. why waste a bench spot during pre-season.. hope it doesn't mean a potential trade of a younger roster player for a 5/6 D-man...

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

Upshall at under $1M could be a replacement for Kassian or Caggiula on that fourth line if the Oilers are looking to move out some cap space and get a defenseman to replace Sekera. I'm all for a cheaper fourth line, and I'm not sure you lose much between Upshall and Caggiula/Kassian.

We'd miss Kassian, he's big, mean, fast, and has skill, he brings what we need... it would be a mistake to lose him.

on the other hand I'd be pretty OK in losing Caggiula ...

I have been saying it all along that as much as I like Kassian, he's a very expensive 4th liner.

You need veterans to fill the pre-season quota for players. Might as well see if he has anything left.

If Kassian amd/or Cagguila get moved for defense, I'm more than ok with it.
