Okay, so the Oilers are going to try to deal Ales Hemsky and Shawn Horcoff. Shall I try to predict what the Oilers can acquire for each? Shawn Horcoff I'll start with the harder one to analyze. I think he has no trade value and the Oilers will need to use a compliance buyout on him. Some people are saying, "he could still play for the Oilers if there's no deal for him." Give your head a shake....

Richard Cloutier: Hemsky and Horcoff Are Going Away

Craig MacTavish said to Mark Spector on Team 1260 today that it's time for Shawn Horcoff and Ales Hemsky to boo boo away. The Oilers new GM said the team is going to try to trade both this summer. They'll find a deal for Hemsky, but not for Horcoff. Both deals either way will result in the Oilers getting pennies on the dollar for the players, which is bad. As I've...

Oilers fire head coach Ralph Krueger

The Edmonton Oilers announced Saturday afternoon that they have decided to fire Ralph Krueger as head coach just one year into the job. On one hand, I feel sorry for Kroger who had only 48 games in a lockout shortened season to prove what he was made of. Krueger, 53, was the head coach of the Swiss national team from 1997-2010. He led the team to 12 world championship appearances...

But just because he says that moving Ales Hemsky and Shawn Horcoff would be best for...
