      I think Benning in Vancouver likely has to be very careful what moves he makes going forward. They are in rebuild mode, and improving, so trading for a plug like Lucic just to get rid of a plug like Erikkson might be enough to get him fired.

      • The question for the Oilers will be whether to keep Lucic and overpay him about $3 million per season, or to trade and retain salary so they're paying about $3 million total to have him play for someone else.

          Yeah itís pretty much about whether you can ditch him without it costing more resources and find someone to fill his contributions for less than he would have cost including any salary you keep back.

          • Marc Spector just said on 630 CHED that Dave Tippett is at the top of the list.

            • Ralph Krueger headed to the Sabres as their HC. It was between him and Tippett for Sabres HC. Looking more like Tippett to the Oilers, it seems.

                What did Oiler fans think of Krueger?

                  I thought he got screwed because McTavish was enamoured with Eakins and we all know how that went.

                    I'm not as big of an Oilers fan like some folks here, but I seem to remember Krueger getting the Oilers on a slight upward trend in his short time with the team. Am I way off base with that memory?

                      Yeah it's really hard to gauge Krueger based on what happened.

                        I think he got shafted. Arguably the best coach they had in the short era where they were going through coaches like crazy, and a good example of why you don't give up on a guy after just one year to chase the next shiny thing.
