BEST OF MAXIM
I always think stuff like this is hilarious.
Sam Gagner's arbitration meeting is closing in on 48 hours or less territory. It seems like the two sides are very far apart. It was reported this morning that the Gagner camp is seeking $5.5mil per season on a one year deal, and the Oilers will argue for $3.5mil on a one year deal at arbitration.
Both sides are thinking $4...
Arbitration hearings start up tomorrow, and this year, they begin with Sam Gagner. Good news for fans who are sick of hearing about his contract battles. Bad for fans of the player and the team.
Both sides have run out of time.

Thursday the Edmonton Oilers announces a new ECHL affiliation with the Bakersfield Condors, just 2 months after their previous team, the Stockton Thunder fell in the Kelly Cup Finals to the Reading Royals. The Thunder were the Oilers' ECHL affiliate for 7 seasons, and while they didn't win the Kelly Cup, the Thunder were still the Western champs, and so another strong, winning...
You know who doesn’t think training camp should be a case of The More the Merrier?
Players who are worried about being elbowed out of the way by somebody better.
And that’s just the way Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish wants it.
MacTavish added yet another D-man to an already crowded mix Thursday when he brought former Oiler Denis Grebeshkov back to Edmonton on a one...
The Rangers have already signed key restricted free agents Ryan McDonagh and Carl Hagelin, leaving Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan unsigned. Zuccarello, due to his contract etc., was able to file for arbitration, which he did, and the hearing is slated for July 31. The hope is and it sounds positive that arb will be avoided and a deal reached. Stepan is not eligible for arbitration...
