No retaliation, save it for the Power Play.
haha really? With a ~13% powerplay efficiency ranked in the bottom 5 of the league, may as well get your licks in while you can.

At what point does Bettman step in and make ownership/management changes to the Oilers or does he even have the authority. That franchise is hurting the league and potentially ruining the careers of some of its best young talent and there is no change in sight.

Bettman can't do shit, as long as the team meets the min cap space that's all that really matters.

Breaking fans' hearts & disappointing the 'talent' on the team? Yeah.

Hurting the league? Not even close. In Nov. of this year, Forbes estimated they are ranked #12 and worth $475M.

Attendance avg of 16,839 this season (100.0%) and a current cap payroll that is only $5.05M below the max cap. The Oilers may be rubbish but they are not hurting in the way the Isles, Coyotes, Canes and Panthers are...

This Voynov is one scumbag of a person. He makes Varlamov look like a saint:
-hope he gets some jail time for doing this to his wife:

The NHL could void his contract: Legal Look: Disturbing details emerge of Voynov's assault on wife - Article - TSN

Disturbing Evidence of a Beating

Here are some of the more disturbing allegations raised in Court today as reproduced from Fenno’s Twitter timeline:
- Redondo Beach police officer: Voynov's wife had laceration over left eye, blood streaming, red marks on neck.
- Officer says Voynov's wife said he struck her in the face with his fist.
- Officer: Voynov pushed wife to ground multiple times, kicked her repeatedly while on ground, chocked her three times.
- Officer: Voynov pushed her into flat-screen TV where she cut her face.
- Officer: Voynov's wife required eight stitches to close wound above left eye.
- Officer: "There's bruising, red marks, scratches on the victim's neck."
- At Voynov's home, the officer noted blood all over bedroom, including covering comforter and a bloody handprint on floor.

Wouldn't mind getting rid of Higgins, tbh.

Frustrating to see him on the second line

Burrows - 4.5 mill - NTC
Higgins - 2.5 mill - Limited NTC
Hansen - 2.5 mill - Modified NTC
Edler - 5 mill - NTC

Would be so nice to get rid of Higgins and Hansen and free up $5 mill and slot one of the younger guys in their spots.

Would be great if we can dump Edler and Burrows for some assets as well.

For anyone interested, the HBO 24/7 replacement, done by Epix, featuring the Capitals and Blackhawks will start airing tonight on Sportsnet in Canada. I don't even recall seeing any promo/advertsing for this, compared to the promos and hype for the HBO version, so I'm pretty skeptical about how good this non HBO version will be.

Ehh, Higgins has been ok.
If he were to be traded who do you see replacing him?

I'm biased since i'm a fan of Burr still, i know 4.5 is overpaying him but the guy was a steal at $2M for a few years. I wouldn't dump him for assets, he's still contributing outside of goals. If i were to trade him, i'd at least want a younger guy who's ready to step in, not some asset who may or may not pan out.

trading Edler now would be pretty stupid since Tanev-Edler is the only decent pairing we have. Esp without Hamhuis until at least Feb. That's a McDavid/Eichel express if Edler was to be traded.

Burr is the type of guy you keep around just cause, he earned every penny of the new contract.

Jensen no questions asked. Shinkaruk still needs at least a year or two in the AHL

The CBC ones last year were pretty bad. Even HBO's ones the last couple of years weren't that great, IMO. NYR-PHI was ... okay ... Definitely was expecting more, but it had its moments.

DET-TOR was boring. I don't recall much entertainment value. The highlight of the series was Crosby ...

Yeah, Shink is barely cutting it at the AHL level. I think he's going to be a great player one day, but his body isn't NHL ready at this point in time.

I wouldn't say that he's barely cutting it at the AHL. He's doing pretty well considering he was is just 18 years old. He's tied for 7th overall on the team and has the second highest SOG.

Although I agree that he isn't the call up and needs to gain some mass/muscle.

the guy has the hands but just needs to get seasoned in the A

one indicator of his value is that, in the last off season, many teams were asking for Shinkaruk as part of a package

Shinkaruk plays like he has something to prove. This is a good thing.
