Questioning Some Of The Signings Made By The Edmonton Oilers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Apparently, hiring all of the hockey analytics people west of Toronto wasn’t enough to save the Oilers from signing Group II free agent Justin Schultz to the single most illogical contract of the summer and, by extension, to save every other NHL front office from Edmonton. But what else is new from this dysfunctional operation that...

Free agency really sucks for the Rangers

Fifteen minutes into free agency and things are really not going well for the Rangers. Pierre LeBrun reports that the Rangers are officially out on Anton Stralman, which sucks especially since Christian Ehrhoff took a remarkably below value deal of just one year and $4M to play with the Penguins next year. Mark Fayne is also off the board, he signed a four year deal with the Oilers...

Rangers could very well lose Pouliot to Penguins, Senators

A short while ago, it looked like Benoit Pouliot and the Rangers would have no trouble coming to terms on a new contract. Pouliot stated multiple times that he wanted to stay with the Rangers. The Rangers reciprocated with their own desire to keep Pouliot. However, money often overshadows the importance of a good situation. Although Pouliot appeared to have finally found a home with...

On December 14th, 2013, Benoit Pouliot was merely a depth winger who was struggling to make an impact on a team that was struggling to do anything. But then something magical happened.
