The Oilers have zero need Virtanen but yet they go out and give him a PTO anyway now hundreds of SJWs on twitter are labeling them "the most disgusting team in the NHL" when personally I don't think this is worst then the 2010's Blackhawks. It is really annoying to me that the Oilers have to start of this drama.

side note: glad they picked up Demers what they need is help on the d-zone so hopefully he brings that and gets a contract


Tbh, I respected them for no ads on jersey and helmet.
My respect goes down with this signing

Virtanen is literally just McDavid without hands or hockey IQ


he just shoots from anywhere, doesn't know how to generate quality scoring chances.

It’s a good signing and they could now have the best top 9 in the league


He's not good.
He's 4th line level.

So just say he has McDavids speed
It's useless to say he's literally McDavid except he doesn't have 90% of what McDavid has

"Virtanen likely to Edmonton"
"Edmonton out of running for Virtanen"
"Virtanen signs pto with Edmonton"

the possible end to the least interesting "will they, won't they" in hockey


Reminds me of the "Deshawn Watson to Cleveland" saga in the NFL. They were in, and then they were out, and then he signs there anyway.

YES, I AM STILL MAD.

It probably has to do with GM Rep. They Don't want to ruin relationships with other teams. It is kinda a sucky thing to do. That's just my idea why tho.

I could understand if he was asking for something around 3.5 x 3, but 2.3 x 3 for sandin is a steal. He’s already worth that.

But its against Toronto so it would be funny. Surely the other GMs will understand and have a good chuckle. It isn't like Toronto is going to have enough cap space in the future to make a offersheet back and someone

I think you a pretty bang on with that, reputation, which makes it all the more confusing when GM’s select players like Mailloux or bring back Virtanen but God forbid you sign another teams top prospect that would help you team contend because you are afraid of what the perception would be from said GM.

From 32 thoughts:

1. Nic Hague might not be at training camp , not close on a contract

2. 7 X 3 is the most likely contract for Jason Roberson, but at this moment they are not close.

3. Barzal and NYI have started contract talks.
