The Water Cooler #1 (Cole/Bouwmeester/Gagner/Penner)

This is a little segment that I like to call the "Water Cooler". This is a place where I can relay some of the stuff that I heard or read about the Oilers. And hopefully you can share with us if you find anything as well. I have no inside info. I just find it fun to speculate on what is going to happen with the Oilers. The other teams I could care less about. Oilers ONLY! For those of you who have never been to any of these rumor sites, do not believe them. Most speculation is just that. Speculation. Never trust a rumor.


This 1st link is from Eklund. (He is wrong 99% of the time.) click here Vermette to the Oilers. But of course he never says who is coming back. What he means is that the Oilers have called Ottawa about Vermette. Nothing more. But very interesting as I think I would give it a shot with him. What do you guys think?


Also from Eklund. Here we have Erik Cole going to Buffalo. click here Again no one going the other way. I really don't know what Buffalo has to offer that we need? On the 5th he reports that Cole may be going to Boston (click here) , Pittsburgh or Ottawa. (click here) Which could bring Vermette our way? Maybe Lucic from Boston? Sykora or Staal from Pittsburgh?


This Eklund guy is a strange guy. He gets people to pay $20 to be a member to see his *Rumor Chart*. But if you look hard enough, someone has posted it for free. CLICK HERE He has quite a few different people linked to the Oilers. Some for good reason. (Bouwmeester). Some I have no idea. (Niclas Havelid from Atlanta) What?!? Check it out. Again... DO NOT TAKE SERIOUSLY!


Jay Bouwmeester is going to be an Oiler. Everyone keeps saying it. Why trade for him and then lose assets? Let him go to wherever and he can come home in the summer at no cost to the Oilers. click here I am looking for more links for this.


Here is Hockey Leaks. click here Read and scroll down. Lots of Oiler Stuff. Like Gagner and Penner for Bouwmeester. lol. Or Gionta to Edmonton. For who? We can't forget the Vinnie debacle.


Anyways... I think that Cole's days are numbered. Too bad. I do like him. Unless he signs before the deadline he will be traded.

As far as anyone else... Schremp, Brule, Strudwick, Roy, Nilsson, Penner, Pouliot, Brodziak, Grebeshkov, Gilbert, Staios, Smid, Jacques, Potulny, Peckham, Chorney. I would suspect that they are all available to some degree. Hemsky, Gagner, Cogliano and such would have to be involved for something big. Everyone can be sold. Who will it be this year?
Here once again is Jason Gregor's list of people that ARE available. CLICK HERE

The Deadline is approaching... Who do you want?

  1. Here is a link to David Staples article about the Oilers aquiring Jagr this year. Very interesting stuff.


Oilers Jambalaya is in no way, shape or form associated with the Edmonton Oilers. This is a fans blog for fans. We happen to love those teams, so we write about them.
