Team(s) Interested-Edmonton Oilers: The Oilers could be without defenseman  Ryan Whitney (ankle), Ladislav Smid (shoulder) and Taylor Chorney (knee) for the opener, and possibly longer. The Oilers need a puck moving defenseman, and the 2 names that continue to pop up are Free Agent Bryan McCabe and Toronto’s Carl Gunnarson. Toronto had to cut Keith Aulie today, who at times was the best defenceman for the Leafs last year. With Dion Phaneuf, John Michael Liles, Luke Schenn, Jake Gardiner, Mike Komisarek and Cody Franson, they have room for a trade. McCabe, on the other hand, is looking for work, and even though his production has slowed down in recent years, he can still be a reliable power play quarterback. They’ll probably look toward Tom Gilbert and Cam Barker to create offense, but if they don`t impress by November, it’s time start shopping.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
