    Oscar Klefbom signs seven-year, $29-million pact with Oilers The Edmonton Oilers have locked up young, promising defensemen Oscar Klefbom to a long-term deal.
    Sunday morning, the Oilers officially announced they have signed Klefbom to a seven-year contract. According to General Fanager, the deal, which will kick in next season, is worth $29.17-million and carries a cap hit of $4.167-million per campaign.

    The 22-year-old blueliner has only 77 games under his belt, but the Oilers locking him up is a big vote of confidence for Klefbom. After getting his feet wet in 2013-14 by playing 17 games with the Oilers, Klefbom was a fixture of Edmonton’s top two pairings in 2014-15, suiting up for 60 games and averaging 22 minutes per game on the backend.
    Is this a reach or a bargain? I really don't know, who has seen him play?

    It's insane. He is a decent player, but nowhere near warranting that contract.

      Its going to be one of two things, a bargain or a disaster. The Oilers are a young team with a young group of forwards but, the question is how in the world are they going to able to keep all these guys together. They have a lot of long term contracts that aren't cheap either:

      Taylor Hall a $6 million cap hit until the end of the 2019-20 season
      Jordah Eberle a $6 million cap hit until the end of the 2018-19 season
      Ryan Nugent Hopkins is a $6 million cap hit until the end of the 2020-21 season
      Sekera is a $5.5 million cap hit until the end of the 2020-21 season

      That's a $23.5 million cap hit from those four players alone. Yakupov is a $2.5 million cap hit and if he ever plays up to his potential he will warrant a big contract and now you get this signing for 7 years and just over $4 million per year on the cap (which takes effect starting next season) and of course there's Connor McDavid who will be play at a bargain price for 3 years but will end up getting a huge salary when his ELC expires.

      Right now they are $3.6 million under the cap ceiling and they have to deal with a few UFA's at the end of this season including goalies Ben Scrivens and Cam Talbot and there's also Ted Purcell and Nikita Nikin who will be UFA's as well. Plus a few RFA's to extend like Luke Gadzic and and Justin Schultz.

        That team is horrendously managed. It's just insane.

        And I forgot about Draisaitl who will be a good one as well. I don't know where they will find the cap room for all these guys.

          And how much is JT making? If Snow is ever let go, I think Edmonton will be the 1st to call him.

            JT is making $5.5 million and obviously that is going to go up when this contract runs out but, Snow has set us up very well with young talent that will take the place of some of the higher priced guys. To Snow's credit, he's been great at managing the cap and just looking at this Edmonton team, the will be in cap soon with these long terms high priced contracts and the worst part is if the Canadian dollar gets weaker the Cap could go down. Right now its $1 US = $1.33 CDN.

              A Goaltending Battle is Finally Brewing in the Oilers Crease

              The Edmonton Oilers have come upon an unfamiliar issue, and one which they have not had the pleasure of entertaining in over a decades time: a raging goaltending battle.
              After failing to retain quality goaltending over, quite honestly, the past 15 years, the Oilers could quite possibly put their futility between the pipes to rest in the coming 2015-16 NHL season.
              This is due strictly to the influx of incredible goaltending talent following the arrival of new General Manager Peter Chiarelli, who quickly traded for Cam Talbot and signed former New York Islander Anders Nilsson.
              Call me crazy but I am going to guess this guy has not done his homework. If Talbot is not the clear cut starter then they have a big problem in my opinion.

                Injury to Jordan Eberle overshadows Edmonton Oilers' pre-season win

                The Edmonton Oilers won the game, but may end up big losers on the night.

                Oilers winger Jordan Eberle left the contest in the first period after taking a hit from Arizona Coyotes centre Kyle Chipchura.

                Eberle appeared to be favouring his shoulder as he skated off the ice. He left Rexall Place after the game with his arm in a sling.

                  Sounds like Eberle could be done for a while...does this mean they will be in the running for yet another #1 pick?

                      The #Oilers have placed goaltender Ben Scrivens on waivers for the purpose of assignment.
                      I guess Anders Nilsson beat him out?

                        Time for Scrivens to think about another line of work.

                        The object is to win. Not just to compete, but to win.

                          Oilers to update captaincy later this week: Chiarelli

                          Edmonton Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli told the Oilers website Monday there will be an announcement later this week regarding the captaincy for this season, according to the Oilers' website.
                          Andrew Ference was named Oilers captain on Sept. 29, 2013, prior to the start of his first season in Edmonton.
                          However, on Sept. 6 coach Todd McLellan told CHED-AM 630 that he wasn't sure if Ference would remain captain or if he would opt for someone else to hold the role.
                          "There’s unfinished business," coach Barry Trotz said.

                            Connor McDavid out 'long term' with reported broken collarbone

                            Rookie collides into boards with 2 Flyers' defenders

                            Edmonton Oilers rookie phenom Connor McDavid left Tuesday night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers with an upper-body injury that will keep him out of the lineup "long term," according to head coach Todd McLellan.

                            Multiple media reports claim that he broke his collarbone, but general manager Peter Chiarelli will not provide an update until Wednesday morning.
                            "There’s unfinished business," coach Barry Trotz said.
