Not really sure but it sucks to know he’s ours for the foreseeable future.

10 games in, he's played well in about 4 or 5 of them and we're ready to anoint him as a quality defenseman He did the exact same thing last year.
- eichiefs9

He did have a good stretch the year before also and then returned to playing like crap. When he first came up he was transitioning the puck well for probably two months then that fell apart. Hopefully with this staff he can find some consistency but it’s far from definite.

You said Bellows wasn't going to be a star and I asked why he had to be. Is that really saying you said he had to be a star?
- Vukota

How is it not? If I didn't say "he had to be a star" why ask me why "he had to be star"? How is this confusing?

I won't root for it. But I won't root against it, either.

Nothing that makes him a cripple or anything. He looks like a god damn cripple out there already.

Also I see we are gonna trade Nelson, Lee & Eberle if we're not a legit contender this year. So everybody is ok with sucking for the next 5 years at the bottom of the league standings? Oh wait that's right they'll go sign Duchene or some other big fish like Panarin to take their place

I'm hoping Lou will work some of his cap circumvention cap magic with that contract at some point.

I asked you why you would make that trade and you responded with I don't think Bellows is going to be a star. So to me that means unless he is a star you would make that deal. So I basically said if he just turned out to be a solid nhl'er it would be a bad trade for the Isles, and your response was I never said he was a going to be a star

I have a feeling JB will spend the last few years on Long term injury don't ask me how just that's my feeling

I actually thought he looked good yesterday and the last couple of games. Maybe keeping his ice time down makes him a more effective player overall. Not exactly rocket science but we have a coach that’ll do sensible things for once😂

I'm talking more like 2 years from now on the last couple of years on that deal. Plus we all know he is a few weeks away from going on the DL

Well isn't that kind of how 99% of trades work? If you don't think someone is going to be a star player then they are, to some degree, somewhat expendable. I like Bellows and think that he'll be a solid player, but not someone irreplaceable.

You can hate the trade idea all you want, but this team needs a second line center, very badly. You don't seem to want to sign one in UFA (I don't disagree with that point) and we don't have one in the system....so, what's your idea to fix that problem? You want to trade Beauvillier, a 1st, and Toews for Point? I'd love him, but he's going to cost a fortune.

Nuge is A) every bit as talented as Bailey B) a perfect 2nd line center fit C) only makes $1M more than Bailey D) is 4 years younger

None of this really matters because the Oilers aren't trading him.

Yeah I know I get it but still nice to see the guy playing well. Everyone forgets he had offseason knee surgery so he’s probably still not 100% yet. He’ll probably blow out his other knee when he’s at 💯😂

Every time he takes a hit I'm wondering if he just got sent to IR.

I love JB don't get me wrong but with 4 young dmen in the AHL playing pretty good right now and his injury history I just don't see him lasting very long that's all

Unfortunately neither do I. Big fan of his but the writing is on the wall he doesn’t have much left in the tank.

I think like 4 of the top 6 point leaders for the sound tigers are Dmen. I don't know if the D prospects are that good or the forwards are that bad??

It's not gonna be easy finding someone. I'd avoid Duchene in UFA like the plague and there isn't a single other UFA center that I'd be interested in signing.

I'd kill for Brayden Point, but I think that's just an idealistic pipe-dream.
