Edmonton Oilers Defence Roster Set?

After tonight's massive loss on the blueline, it appears the Oilers defense crew has been determined. Not out of choice, but out of necessity. Smid, Chorney and Fedun all were hurt in tonight's game.

That leaves the team with Barker, Gilbert, Petry, Sutton, Peckham and Potter as the only healthy players for opening night. Not a great way to start the 2011 season.

I'd assume a call up will be made in morning. I'd expect it to be Colten Teubert.

Other options include claiming a defenseman off of waivers. There is a few out there right now, and there will be more to come as camp cuts happen.

Stay tuned...



  1. I agree with this post. Whitney is out for a few more weeks it seems. Fudun was making a strong case for himself. Teubert will love the call up opportunity still a little green though who do we really have left.

  2. The Oilers only have 2 contracts to spare after sending Marincin down... maybe less depending on if they give a contract to Tulupov and/or Martindale. They don't have much flexibility to pick anyone up on the waiver wire.
