Edmonton Oilers @EdmontonOilers
The #Oilers have recalled Brad Malone from the @Condors. The forward has scored 7 goals & 17 assists in 41 games with Bakersfield this season.


The centre is also a +8 through 41 games.

Had been playing with Russell and Gambardella most often.

He’s pretty good on the dot. Has a career faceoff percentage of 54.5, through 183 games, which includes 9 games in 2011/12 with Colorado where he was 12.5% and has had an average over 60% through his last 3 stints in the NHL.

Also comes in at $650,000, the cheapest call up option

And so behind the era of the Keith.

Could we see a Kassian trade to move salary? Are you losing a ton if you swap out a Malone for Kassian? Kassian is probably slightly better but how much better?

I think you lose on the 'character' in the room that has been talked about from BN and the media that the Oilers are lacking. Yeah, he (Kassian) makes a bit much money for what he's bringing offensively, but I think (given my limited knowledge on the room) that you'd be losing more than meets the eye.

I would counter by saying what exactly has all this character done for them the last 2 seasons?

I think he's a guy who's actual value is probably less than his perceived value to some other GMs. I think you could do okay on a Kassian trade, while freeing up cap space and bringing in someone else who could contribute to the same amount.

I have a hard time believing he's much of a leader within the dressing room. He brings grit, but that and 50 cents still won't buy you a cup of coffee.

I do think his performance was depressed under McLellan, but we haven't seen a big recovery (other than the one game against Buffalo).

He's not my first priority to deal - I'd rather flush Manning, Spooner, Brodziak or Lucic but assuming none of those things can happen, Kassian's in the next rung.

I agree with you. If Kassian is making 950K, I'd have no problem with him but at 1.95 mill, he should be a 3rd line player. Maybe he can moonlight once in a blue moon but he's a 4th liner. Maybe your 4th line center can make just over 1 mill because centers in my opinion are slightly more important than wingers but a 4th line winger shouldn't be making over a mill.

I also think you are correct in his perceived value around the league. He's big, can be physical, plays with an edge, at times shows he has skill and he can skate which is the key. Teams still value that. You don't have to look any further than what the supposedly "genius" Vegas Knights did. They signed Reeves for 2 years at 2.775 mill. He's a decent skating goon, been like that his whole career. He's having a career year with 8 goals, 15 pts. But over his whole career, he's a typically in the 3-7 goals, 10-15 pt range. Is Reeves not just a 4 year older Kassian? One season Kassian scored 14 goals and had 29 pts. Other than that, he's been in the 7 goal range, high teens, low 20's point wise. So he might even look more attractive than a Reeves.

Yes. Agreed.

There was a journal column/blog suggesting Sam Gagner could be a possible upgrade to current lack of scoring on roster. Would you trade Spooner, Brodziak or Kassian for Gagner if Vancouver seemed intereted?

Sure. Why not cycle through another attempt to find depth scoring?



This is fine.

Overpaid and underachieving depth scoring, you mean?

Gagner's got another year at just over $3.1MM - I'd one for one him for Spooner, because there's no real risk there - but not one-for-one for the other guys unless Vancouver carries the balance between the two salaries. Gagner for Brodziak and Kassian? I could get behind that one possibly.
