    Good job Edmonton on coming back not only in the game but coming back after losing 7-0 , just like you’ve done all season. Total domination in overtime.

      I was just looking at Cap friendly, boy the fLAMES have some crappy contracts. No Goaltending and not much of a line up, now or in the near future. Might be time to rearrange management? Think they dare give Burke the GM job hahahahha.

    After reading some JetsNation articles, I’m going to stop complaining about the typos and bad grammar in OilersNation articles. Sentences that just end halfway through. “Ducks Center Ryan Kelser?” “Prospecting 8 players in the expansion draft?” Jesus, do they even have schools in Winnipeg??

    Wait, Ralph Krueger???

    Are they seriously think that Krueger would give up his chairman job in England and back to coach?

    If Krueger as GM or POHO then maybe but anything short of that is highly unlikely. Coaching team Europe was a part-time job for him and it was also after the transfer window in England so he has more free time to do something else. I doubt that he will just settle for a coaching position if he has intention to return to hockey.
