Pitlick's NHL Debut

Big thanks to everyone for all the good luck tweets and texts!! Really looking forward to this opportunity.

— Tyler Pitlick (@Pitty687) October 22, 2013

It's been a long and undulating voyage for Pitlick, but he's finally made it to the big show.
After everyone wrote him off, he found a niche to his game and demonstrated the physical ability to play with the big boys. Pitlick came in at #25 in our Top 25 after spending significant time in the top 15.
Here's hoping he hangs on. Best of luck to Tyler.

A "realistic" trade scenario

This is what happens when "trade rumors" make it mainstream:

"I think we could realistically trade them hartnell (once he’s back from injury), b schenn, and maybe a guy like grossman for yakupov and Shultz. Both guys are slupping, but both have tremendous upside. I just don’t think the oilers view themselves as having time for their players to go through growing pains any longer. You need to look for desperate teams when thinking about making trades and I think the oilers are more desperate than most "
