Days of Summer

We're less than a month from training camp, I'm completely bored without any hockey or Oiler talk and there are two significant names that have yet to be signed by our Oilers: Cogliano and Gagner. They're restricted free agents and we've waited all summer for their signings. We still wait. It's actually been very quiet on the Gagner front from both sides. I'm confident it will get done but it is interesting that it's taking so long. My guess is they're arguing over term?

Staples mentioned the Capitals were interested in either our Souray (used to be known as Big Sexy) or the Canucks' Bieksa. The Oilers have been trying to trade or give-away Souray all summer. I'm a bit surprised by this but if the Oilers can dump him for a bag of pucks, I'd be quite happy. And once again, Cogliano's name is being thrown in the mix as well. His name gets added to every single trade rumor.

And one last shout out to Pisani who signed with the Hawks. He will forever be remembered in Edmonton for his play during the spring of 2006. One of my favorite moments, game 5 of the finals and a beautiful overtime goal.
