Rumors the Day Before the Draft

There is some news coming the day before the draft and as teams and player agents are allowed to communicate interest with their respective camps before July 1. Some news coming out from the Edmonton Oilers camp.

This could be interesting. Anderson has some injury issues that might scare some Oiler fans, but he is a sure-fire #1 goaltender and the Oilers need a true #1. If Anderson is somehow aware that he may be moved and to the Oilers, one can only assume that the Cam Talbot asking price is too high.

This too is interesting as McQuaid brings some interesting skills, but is also not a top four d-man in most respects and what Edmonton has a lot of, are bottom pairing defencemen.

The Oilers have hired their assistant coaches and Edmonton now has a bench team that is basicially made up of San Jose's old crew.  Here's to hoping that none of the locker room issues that existed in San Jose last year were at all due to coaching issues.
