Trade is 1 for 1 for Klim Kostin.


The fact that he wasn't claimed tells me most of the league didn't see him as an NHL player. Getting a winger for him helps with the depth imbalance.
I dont know anything about Kostin other than what I just read so no idea if he has a chance to b an NHL'er but from an asset management POV this seems like the right move.


I’m floored. This is exactly what the Oilers should be doing right now if they feel that Broberg and Niemelainen are higher on the team’s depth chart. They snuck Samorukov through at the time of year where it’s hardest for teams to pick up extra players, but there was no guarantee he would get through again in the future.

Has Kostin been through waivers yet this year? Does he require waivers?

EDIT - by my very rudimentary understanding, he does not require waivers until next year or another 30 odd NHL games.


Kostin just cleared waivers as well.. a day before Samy


I could be wrong but I think if you claim a guy off waivers you have to keep in on your NHL club.
By trading two guys, who just cleared waivers, for each other, I believe each team can send the player straight to the farm team right away.
There is a chance the teams had trade talks first on the condition that the player cleared waivers so they wouldnt have to risk the loss themselves, post trade.
