The oilers still need defense

Yea I feel bad for Scrivens. I don’t think any goalie in the league could help them out too much. Miller is playing unbelievable in Buffalo yet they’re still last in the league.

Still waiting on the trade call and Scrivens is UFA at the end of the season.

Eakins had him when he was coaching the Marlies too.

Scrivens is UFA at the end of the season.

I hadn’t realized that.  Kind of a nothing deal unless they re-ink him.

Wow. Jones certainly makes more sense in the long run, all things being equal, but I’m still surprised Deano pulled the trigger on this. Scrivens was a good guy but c’est la vie. 3rd rounder is bound to be pretty high, so that’s not too shabby.

And needless to say I’m still pissed that they demoted Toffolli yesterday, after steadily dropping his minutes over the last month. But oh, we need scorers.

Maybe they can reacquire Smid. A defensive defenseman.

I’d trade Q to the Slicks for any position in the 2014 draft.

Good job Deano! High 3rd rounder is nice. Plus, Scrivs is from the area, so good for him. We’ll miss his video bombs.

Seems pretty fair to LA - probably only the slightest of chances Scrivens would have resigned behind Quick. 

He can be the main goalie in Edmonton if he resigns there.  You’ve got to figure…one of these days they’ll be good.  Of course I’ve said that for 3 years.
