The first star, worst star of the week

    For me, the story of the week is how Daryl Katz reportedly made Sportsnet pull a guy from their broadcast because Katz didn’t like what he was saying about the Oilers.

    That’s unreal.

    If true, this says to me that all the Oilers Gestapo d-baggery we’ve been hearing about in recent years, which has been largely attributed to the arrogance of Lowe and friends, has in all likelihood actually been coming all the way from the top.

    Oh, you poor, sad fools.

    Their on-ice record is one thing, because that slate gets wiped clean every summer.

    But if you’ve got a d-bag owner, running a d-bag organization… oh man. That’s a whole different story. That’s the kind of thing that would honest-to-god probably make me jump ship. Heck, it’s making me reconsider trash-talking Oilers fans.

      Yep, they managed to turn a 10th overall pick, plus a few million dollars of salary and several years of development time, into a 27th-ish overall pick.

      Brilliant work.

        Sink cost is sunk. Not every 18 years old plan out. Draft prodigy means little once the rookie contract is signed and player started playing.

        What matters is what you get out of it. Look at it this way, they could have claim MPS before they trade away Perron. Then the net trade is 2nd for 1st + Kilkhammer.

        Except they rather also rather do without MPS and screw over St. Louis.

    I really hope the Perron trade for Klink and the pick was Mac T creating cap space so we can use pick in a trade for a young proven NHL’r center , d man or goalie. Klinkhammer like Fraser is worth a look, maybe a fresh start does something? Doubt it with the pressure cooker, loosing situation but here’s hoping ……….?…..again.
