Yeah, that's what Friedman said. Still, take your shot.

Obviously, if the Oilers haven’t approached Kovalchuk, they ought to. It’s better to be turned down than not even try

yep. If stauffer is lying to save face in getting turned down, that seems strange cause it’s far worse to not have even tried. Either that or he just doesn’t know cause it makes no sense to not contact Kovalchuk
That and Friedman’s one of the few pundits that deserves the benefit of the doubt imo.

Kovalchuk, even 5 years removed from his last game in the league, would be Edmonton’s best RW by a country mile.

Yep



We had taylor hall and Jordan eberle. And even then we weren’t super deep.
Now we’re desperate to find wingers cause our group is among the worst in the league. 😂😡

Would you consider Klefbom for Daley and AA?

What was that? Mantha for Kassian and Benning? Agreed.

Yeah. I don’t know what I was thinking with that proposal. What would it take for Klefbom from the Wings current roster not named Mantha or Larkin that would include one forward, one defensemen and a pick?

Sure the Oilers aren't deep on wing. But why would the trade what is potentially there best Dman. Oilers arent at a position on strength on the back end to move Klefbom. Im sure they will let you have Russell for a bag of skittles.

Who cares who is right about contacting him? Key thing that Friedman said is “it’s not going to happen”. And this has been known for a while since he did an interview stating what his main criteria will be. The city and the fit for his family. His daughter is a competitive gymnast. His one son is a huge football player. Edmonton doesn’t have the elite programs his kids and wife want. End of story. Move on to another option.

Nothing. We need better players not more players.

Klefbom for an unequivocal upgrade on defence or we gotta keep him brah

Even if I’m fairly certain he’ll never be a true 1, he’s a solid top pairing guy and his contract is fantastic
