In my opinion if this organization can't replace players like Auvitu, Slep, Pakarinen who are borderline NHLers, then they are WAY worse off than anyone of us thought.

I can't remember who players like Auvitu, Slep, and Pakarinen were brought into replace, but I doubt they were any better than the departing group or the incoming group.


Good question, I don't remember either. Was Auvitu brought in to replace Reinhart? Shockingly Pakarinen has been an Oiler for 4 seasons. Why I don't know.

See? The organization can't replace players like Auvitu, Slep, and Pakarinen. They're way worse off that you thought.


There's not a direct correlation for many because guys like Slepyshev and Pakarinen were in the system for a while. But we can look at the guys they let walk to give them opportunity.

I'd suggest Auvitu, Gryba (re-signed) and Stanton were brought in to off-set the loss of Oesterle, Davidson, and Reinhart.

I'd suggest Tyler Pitlick wasn't given an offer at least partly because of Slepyshev. You could make the argument that Eberle was moved because they thought Slepyshev was ready to be a top-6 forward, but let's stick with Pitlick, because that is a bad enough judgement.

Cammalleri was brought in to replace Jokinen who was brought in to replace Pouliot.

Pakarinen was probably re-signed to off-set the departure of Lander and Hendricks. Pakarinen was pretty similar to Lander in many ways - great in the AHL, couldn't transition that to the NHL, but was a good PKer. Difference was Lander was a centre.
