This could be a crazy day for the Oilers.
There could be a big pile of inactivity.
Which scenario would you rather?
Option 1: The Oilers pass up on/don't have the successful waiver claim for Jussi Jokinen. The Danny DeKeyser thing does not happen. Therefore, the Oilers move forward with the same roster going into Thursday's game, which might not be a bad thing. Changes are a dis...

AROUND THE WEB
The Carolina Hurricanes have placed center Jussi Jokinen on waivers, which prompted a lot of discussion about the Rangers claiming him. Jokinen is having a down year, but he is still a good face off guy and one of Carolina’s top puck possession forwards (1.11 CorsiRelQoc, 3rd among ‘Canes forwards). Jokinen is shooting well below his career average (9%, average of 13%), which...

With the Hurricanes currently in a tough losing streak, most people figured that there were going to be some changes to the roster very soon and we saw one of those moves today with Jussi Jokinen being placed on waivers.

There's something funny about this.
I know "collusion" is a strong word, but you can't tell me some team out there somewhere doesn't have an interest in Carolina Hurricanes forward Jussi Jokinen, who just cleared waivers. Maybe teams have agreed not to take each other's guys? No takers for Jokinen makes no sense to me.
There still could be an Oilers...
Jussi Jokinen could have been a good addition to the Caps, but they passed.
What in the world are the Carolina Hurricanes doing? People who bash Oilers management should pay attention to this.
- Alex Semin given a 5 year, $35mil extension? Awful deal for an extremely talented player who just doesn't care.
- Jussi Jokinen on waivers? I just can't believe they couldn't deal this guy. As per Bob Stauffer on the Oilers Now show, Carolina cannot...

The big waiver claim of the day was expected to be Jussi Jokinen of the Carolina Hurricanes. It turned out to be Kaspars Daugavins of the Ottawa Senators.
Boston, who has gotten a glimpse of Daugavins here and here, decided to take a shot on the twenty-four year-old Latvian. As one astute observer pointed out, perhaps Chiarelli taking...
