    Got mine off EBay and one arm is 4" longer than the other one but I don't even care!

    Glad Nuge is back. Haven't watched a single game of hockey this year, so maybe I shouldn't start again.

    Plays his worst game in 2 months, and still gets 3 points. You've come a long way, baby!

    6 weeks is perfect, should be back just before the trade deadline so maybe we see him or Draisaitl moved out.

    6 weeks is perfect, won't be back in time for the trade deadline, so Chiarelli can't make any stupid moves in desperation. And Draisaitl isn't going anywhere.

    Why in the world would you want to move Draisaitl?

    At what point do the Oilers decide they are back in the hunt? Wins over Buffalo, Calgary and Colorado put the Oilers over Bettman .500 for the first time since opening night.

    Then do you tell Nuge it's time to play with the injury because playoffs are a real possibility? Have him play the Colorado game?

    You don't force a guy to play through cracked ribs.

    I think when RNH is back, people who are fans of his should enjoy the remaining games as they are likely to be his last as an Oiler.

    Because I think he's going to be moved in the summer. Chia has limited options and limited cap ... he is going to have to raid the center depth cookie jar to do anything significant.

    I think he will be playing for the Habs next year.

    I always enjoy watching Nuge play. I am glad that even if he does get moved that we saw him finally starting to play close to his potential this season. I am of the opinion that he is not moved unless we trade for a 1D.

    Nuge is on my wife’s list of 5 so part of me hopes he gets traded to the East but I just love the kid’s leadership and play so much I’d risk it!

    RNH has been one our most intriguing players this season. He's one of the smartest players on this team. I'd be in absolute shock if he's shipped off.

    He is only entering his prime so I'm optimistic on his growth as an player.

    He should really only be moved if we can get a top pairing, offensive Dman in return.

    I think Chia is going to try and convince Montreal to give Shea Weber up for him (after he strikes out on Karlsson and OEL).

    That should be a no brainer from Montreal's POV.

    I wonder if Chia listens to Connor?

    Nuge seems like a guy that is well liked in the room. That said the sad reality is that we may need to move out some cap to improve other areas of the team and that may include Nuge being moved thanks to the NMC's on this team.
