The #Oilers have signed forward Alex Chiasson to a two-year contract.
#Leafs are signing D Kevin Gravel, formerly of #Oilers, to a one-year deal worth $700k.
Maroon camp shutting it down for the night, will regroup tmw. Oilers among teams still talking. EDM set on more lineup changes. They are well aware of how much improvement they need, primarily among fwds.
Pat Maroon is rumored to go to the Edmonton Oilers.
I did a quick jersey swap to show you guys what that would look like.

Sensing the dollars on Nyquist are getting out of reach for the Oilers. May have to look elsewhere for offence.

Considering the 6-year term Brandon Tanev got, I can only be relieved and grateful that Chiasson got a 2-year term at $2.15 million per.
Lucic, Gagner, Manning & Russell equal $15.4M on the #Oilers cap.
Oilers fans are so dumb, we get mad when previous GMs hand out terrible contracts to free agents and then we also get mad that Holland isn’t handing out terrible contracts to free agents
Buyouts for Pouliot, Sekera and Gryba equal 4.13M on the #Oilers cap next year.
#Oilers twitter waiting for Holland to make a dumb move so they can roast him. Ain’t happening. So instead they jump on him for not doing enough.
Mike Smith on his relationship with Oilers coach Dave Tippett: “Tipp was a big reason why my career turned around in Arizona ... I have a lot of respect for the way he coaches, the way he treats people. His transparency is unlike a lot of coaches. He’s very honest. (1/2)
Don’t play with my heart! Are the Oilers actually talking to Maroon?!!
Oilers fandom life-cycle:
2016 - can’t fix this in one season give him time
2017- wow play-offs are fun
2018 - k this seems bad, but I know this is a good team
2019 - wtf fire this dude!
2020- can’t fix this in one season give him time...
I’m not alone in thinking the Oilers should have sold high on Chiasson instead of scrambling to probably overpay him today am I?

An oldie but goodie from the "Ice Pack and Ibuprofin" days.
Mark Messier takes over Game 4 of the '90 Campbell Finals. Hawks were up 2-1 in the series needing two more wins to get to their first SCF in 17 years. Moose and the Oilers had other plans.
Epic playoff performance. https://t.co/COFamLx4LA

This is why we hired Holland

#OTD in 1985, the #Oilers acquire WR Drew Hill from the Los Angeles Rams. He would average over 1,000 yards receiving per season over his 7-year Houston stint, topping 4-digits in 5 of those 7 seasons #LuvYaBlue 8️⃣5️⃣ https://t.co/GBcKeaaMBF

"I don't think that we're done" -Holland on reforming the bottom six #Oilers
I wonder if the Oilers would trade Connor McDavid to the Canes for Brock McGinn. Would save Oilers some money to allow them to extend Mike Smith to a big contract after next season- makes as much sense as Staal for Lucic.
According to @RealKyper
the Oilers were unwilling to give up a 2nd rounder for Connor Brown, despite McDavid hoping he was added.
I have determined that the Oilers could assemble six fourth lines should they want to. SIX.
Granlund-RNH-Chiasson are lines one and two, take a look at this madness... 1/2

Edmonton #Oilers are a much deeper team today, but are they a much better one?
It's not often you get to beat Mark Spector to some news eh? #Oilers
(Seravalli beat us both back in June I believe though) https://t.co/7AQ38McI5x

I guess this is why Oilers fans hate management so much lol. Do you really think Benning and a pick would get a 50 point center?
For the record, I don’t need to give Holland a chance. Last year, I barely watched the Oilers and didn’t spend a dime on them because I was tired of seeing GM’s manage the team so badly.
I’m thinking more along the lines that it’s up to them to prove themselves.
#Oilers GM Ken Holland on Jesse Puljujarvi:
"Talked to a lot of teams uhhhh, not sure where we are there. But uhhh, talked to a lot of different teams about a lot of different ideas about Jesse. So I'm not sure where it's going to go. We'll see."
Edmonton addressed its netminding on July 1, gambling one year on 37-year-old Mike Smith.
on the risks and potential rewards of the choice:
Here’s my thread on the Oilers free agency follies if ya care ha
1- Mike Smith was not my first choice. Not my second. Nor my third. However, I’m a wait and see kind of guy.
2- Markus Granlund is an intriguing pickup. For a modest price, he has some upside and is coming with..
Is that from someone that roots for both the Flames and Oilers?
Lol ok. All I know is that the #isles made it further than the flames, who got knocked out in the first round, and the oilers, who didn’t even make the playoffs!
Brown was the popular OTP for him at the time, as someone who was there; Marchand and K*ne were more side pairings. It wasn’t like, HUGE, like Carts/Richie or K*ne/Toews, but I’d say it was relatively on par with like, the Oilers bbs OT3 (Nuge/Ebs/Hall) and combinations thereof…
Alex Chiasson is back with the Oilers on a new two-year contract. @DNBsports
explains where he fits and why Edmonton re-signed him after waiting until July 1:
Next season's Calder race will be the best in years.

The Montreal Canadians prove they are desperate, and possibly nuts, by offering a huge deal to RFA Sebastian Aho. The Habs want to be a contender again. Oilers tried the same offer sheet tactic and it didn’t really work for them. https://t.co/wj6DUUrLxY
@DirtbagDonny @BeerLeagueHeroe @edmoildrops
Arcobello is a great scoring player . His game. Just doesn't transfer to the NHL . Hopefully these oilers signings can play , the price was right but it's going to be an uphill battle
I knew the Oilers were good... but oh baby, I didn’t think they were THAT good. No major moves. Downgraded their D.
I am not going to slag the #Oilers free agent signings. If they still suck next year I am going to cheer for the #Flames.
Gretzky was the best.
We had the Oilers too. Bum Phillips & Earl Campbell. Love ya blue. Real football team. Rednecks United.
Oilers are in hibernation till july 1st 2021

Eerily reminiscent of Oilers twitter in the second year of Chiarelli.. You just hate to see it. https://t.co/trtFv8hV8a
