    Quite the game between Charlotte and Lehigh Valley.

    Mike Krushelnyski's kid scored in the fifth OT to win it 2-1. :eek:

    This is the reason why I feel the Oilers can trade the #10 pick. We have a significant amount of young guys coming into the AHL the next couple of years and should be OK there, although yes none may actually be "top end", but the Oilers need to get better now ! If and only *IF* Chia can make a good trade for the pick and get a player we need, AND a pick back as well , then I would consider the trade a success.

    Curious what kind of supplemental signings via Europe or NCAA are to come as well.

    And I think we have done very well under Chia in the college free agent/trading for up and coming young talent with guys like Benning , Caggiula and Marody, Hebig, and signing college grad Ty Vesel to a one year contract . Me thinks more college and Euro free agents will indeed be pursued this summer . o_O :thumbu:

    Guess this is slightly notable. Odds are it'll mostly be goalies spending time down there though.

    I don't know how I missed it but apparently Lagesson is going to be coming over for sure next year. Should be a solid addition to Bakersfield defense. Guy can move the puck well and is a great shut down defender. If Mantha is ready to play again they would be a great pair.

    If Lagesson's over, that should be the main core of the AHL defence set.

    Stanton-Bear
    Jones-Gryba
    Lagesson-Mantha

    Seems like a more settled group than last year and having 4 rookies; though Bear, Jones, and Mantha are going to be leaned on heavily for offence.

    He's coming for sure, but from all I have seen he's set on making the Oilers. He wants to play in the NHL and thinks he can make it.

    I also probably think he'll be in Bakersfield, but I like his mind set. And I think he will probably be a bit better than some people expect.

    Edit: I think he sees an opening on the 3rd pair tbh. If no big changes are made.
    Nurse Larsson
    Klefbom Sekera
    Russell Benning/Bear

    I could see him gunning fot that 3LD spot, moving Russell to 3RD and Benning/Bear as 7th D.

    To me he is a left shot Larsson lite. Which would be great as a bottom pairing guy to couple with a guy like Bear or Benning. Too bad we got too many left shot expensive old guys

    Exactly.

    I hope they won't be sentimental if he really manages to outplay them.

    What is the word on Benson? Is he likely in the AHL next season, or a candidate for an overage year in junior?

    AHL 100%. Oilers then have full control of his development and training. Plus our AHL team could really use him.

    Agreed. Love the Defense on this team next year, but its scary when you're excited to see how Cooper Marody can do.

    Based on what we currently have signed I would be okay with a roster kind of like...

    Benson - Malone - Yamamoto
    Laleggia - Marody - Currie
    Russel - Hebig - Vesel
    Gambardella - Gust - Hamilton

    Lagesson - Bear
    Jones - Mantha
    Lowe - Whoever

    Safin could also technically make the jump too and give us more of a youth jolt to the AHL team.

    Nice. I like those lines.

    I'd throw Gryba on that bottom pairing with Lowe and keep him far away from Edmonton. I also hope that Mantha can recover from his eye injury.

    I'd keep Safin down in the Q for another year. Hopefully he can get traded to Halifax and go the Memorial Cup.

    In case anyone's curious: There were a press conference in Bakersfield today to introduce their new head coach. ;)

    Not a fan of Woodcroft's power plays but I'm rooting for him down in Bakersfield.

    Players have routinely said that they like him as a guy and he is super helpful. Maybe his pp will dominate in the AHL. Never know

    If he makes the playoffs hats off to him. The development in the Oilers farm has been a crutch for far to long. Come on Jay start the winning young.

    With the massive infusion of youth and skill he is in a good spot.

    I don't blame this fully on the coaches down there either. Anytime it looks like they get some talent to develop they end up in the NHL instead of the AHL. PC needs to make sure that the NHL roster is full of NHLers, so that the guys that should be in the AHL stay in the AHL.

    JP, Nurse, Caggiula, Benning, Slepy come to mind as guys who should've spent more time down in AHL.

    Add that you then draft 1st and pretty much lose any sort of AHL development with those guys and you can see why our farm team isn't developing any real players.

    Jujhar and Pitlick spent their time in the AHL and are looking, but that's really only two guys that spent time in the AHL.

    Davidson spent time too and he went from a long shot to a guy who is a 6/7 D. Which is still pretty good.
