<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>AFOX10900</b></div><div>We can do better than those last three picks, I'd prefer Grans Neimela, and Khusnutdinov (if available) and we can do better than Honka for Comtois... I'm not overrating Comtois, Honka just isn't that good, he's not bad, but Comtois is closer to ready, and has a higher ceiling, Honka seems to be more of a high floor low ceiling guy imo, I'd move Tracey instead of Comtois, and it'd be more fair, and I doubt you'd be able to flip Staal for anything, (TBL gladly matches that OS as well)</div></div>
The Staal one was based more on Chevealdayoffs weird fascination with bad dmen. Honka's ceiling i think has gone up a lot since he was drafted, he's having a stellar year in Finland, but I'm not opposed to swapping out Tracey for Comtois if the deal still got done.
I don't think TBL will be able to match the OS. With an 83M cap they'll have 7.3M with 2F spots to fill and 3D spots to fill, and people they need to resign include Cirellie (+5M) and Sergachev (+5M). So I don't think they'll have the luxury of matching Cernak's OS.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CD282</b></div><div>The Oilers have 10 NHL defensemen under team control next year - and that's without re-signing Mike Green should they be interested. They aren't moving Puljujarvi for an LHD.</div></div>
They have 4 NHL defensemen (with Russell) signed for next season. 6 if you count Bouchard and Jones. They have 9 F, 4 D, and 1 G in the roster predictions right now with 12.5M in cap, 14M with an 83M cap.
They have to resign AA, Bear, Ennis, Benning, and a starter A. Those contracts will probably be like 3.5, 3.5, 2, and 3 (not signing one of Benning or Ennis). So that's 2M to sign three roster players which is doable. Or they can get 4M extra cap space, move Guhle into Russell's spot and try to go after another top 6 skilled forward in the offseason. Puljujarvi isn't going to play for the Oilers anyways, might as well get a top 4 D potential player and get rid of some cap.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CD282</b></div><div>It's not tag-along success though. Read what the players, coaches and media observers are saying. He's a big, big part of that line's success. Money quotes:
“Yamo, he wins races, he wins pucks, he does little things that a lot of people that watch games probably don’t really see. He’s very feisty and hard to play against. It’s a lot of fun and I think we can still create more offensively. That will come with more chemistry.” - Leon Draisaitl
“He plays with speed, he makes good plays, the tenacity he brings to our group,” (Oilers Head Coach Dave) Tippett said. “He’s not a big guy but he plays really hard and (is) a smart player. He’s come in and in a short time has contributed and made our team a better team. He’s a smart player, he reads situations well. He makes good plays with the puck and that’s why you see a guy like Draisaitl likes to play with him, because he can play a give-and-go game and he makes intelligent plays. That along with the tenacity, he gets to the front of the net, he finds loose pucks, he’s a smart player with a good skill set and he’s willing to work.”

I'm not saying Yams won't be good in the future, but right now he's nowhere near the player that Kase is.
According to hockey-viz <a href="https://www.hockeyviz.com/player/yamamka98/EDM/1920" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">https://www.hockeyviz.com/player/yamamka98/EDM/1920</a> Yams' offensive on-the-ice contribution is -20% threat below league average (very bad), EDM without Yams is -6% below the league average (less bad). Yam's defensive on-the-ice contribution to the opponents' offensive threat is +12% above the league average (bad), EDM without Yams is -4% (good).
Kase's offensive on-the-ice contribution is +100% threat above league average (very good), ANA without Kase is -7% below the league average (bad). Kase's defensive on-the-ice contribution to the opponents' offensive threat is +3% above the league average (less than decent), ANA without Kase is +4% (even lesser than decent).
So yeah his teammates and coaches may like him, but his on-the-ice contribution actually hasn't been as good as the eye test may say. He's just a kid though.
