Oilers assign Kailer Yamamoto to Spokane

  Oilers assign Kailer Yamamoto to Spokane ***ImagePlaceholder*** Like his dream of staying with the Oilers, this puck is just out of Kailer Yamamoto’s reach. Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports Chiarelli and Co. do the right thing, probably. The Edmonton Oilers have assigned 2017 first round pick Kailer Yamamoto to the Spokane Chiefs of the WHL.The young forward tallied a line of 0-3-3 in 9 GP, and will almost certainly benefit from another season of dominating the WHL.

Cleveland Browns: 3 main takeaways from the trade deadline. We saw the team draft a 28-year old rookie quarterback and had another quarterback wear a wig and glasses to Vegas on the last day of the season instead of showing up to the game.

Between this and the 5-0 Oilers lead, shitty sports watching right now* -.

Both players have slid into depth roles at this stage of their careers, meaning the deal probably won't have franchise-altering repercussions. That said, there are still a few takeaways, particularly when it comes to the struggling Oilers.

Self-inflicted wounds

With the Oilers currently dead last in the NHL with 38 goals for through 17 games, this trade was presumably orchestrated to address their lack of offense - a problem that wouldn't need to be solved if Peter Chiarelli hadn't traded away the majority of his team's depth.

Mrazek, Red Wings shut out Oilers 4-0

  Mrazek, Red Wings shut out Oilers 4-0 EDMONTON - Detroit's backup goalie proved to be more than up for the task for the Red Wings on Sunday. Petr Mrazek made 36 saves and Martin Frk and Anthony Mantha each had a goal and an assist as the Red Wings beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-0. "I thought he (Mrazek) was excellent," said Detroit head coach Jeff Blashill. "He made some point-blank saves on Connor McDavid. We all know how good he is. Petr has put in tons of work in, both in the summer and in the moments he hasn't been playing for the last bit. He's put tons of work in, he's improved his technique, he was totally ready for this opportunity and that's great for Pete.

We look at three key takeaways from the win. The Vancouver Canucks knew they had their hands full on Saturday night, when reigning scoring Connor McDavid and the star-studded Edmonton Oilers came to town. But even without Brock Boeser — a questionable healthy scratch hours before the game

If Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle - heck, maybe even just one of them - were still in the fold, perhaps Edmonton wouldn't have felt the need to go out and add a 35-year-old who hasn't topped 70 games in a single season since 2008-09.

Don't be fooled: Jokinen's better

While Jokinen has only produced one point to Cammalleri's seven this season, the new Kings forward brings a more complete game to the table.

Cammalleri has just one goal at even strength this season, and Jokinen holds a clear advantage in several advanced metrics.

4.26CF% relative to teammates-8.01

Jokinen's sky-high expected goals-for percentage leads the NHL, while Cammalleri's PDO (on-ice shooting plus save percentage) doesn't appear to be sustainable, as the number generally reverts closer to 100 as the season wears on.

Digging into the Jussi Jokinen for Mike Cammelleri trade

  Digging into the Jussi Jokinen for Mike Cammelleri trade The Edmonton Oilers traded free agent signing Jussi Jokinen, 34, for Los Angeles Kings free agent signing Mike Cammalleri, 35. Jokinen makes $1.1 million this year, Cammalleri $1 million. Meh.Jokinen looked like a decent-to-good signing when the Oilers brought him in this summer. He was 34, yes, and coming off a poor year, yes, but he’d been a strong player before then. Of course, none of that matters in a league where the performance of players can fall off sharply and quickly once they’re in their early 30s.

This can't be it, right?

While Tuesday's trade indicates Chiarelli knows his roster needs improved depth, adding Cammalleri can't be his only move if the Oilers want to maximize their opportunity to win this season.

Relying solely on the production of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisiatl has already put the Oilers in a deep hole to begin a season in which they were pegged as Stanley Cup favourites.

Edmonton has until the end of the current campaign before McDavid's salary rockets into the stratosphere. With just over $8 million in cap space available for the remainder of the season, there's an opportunity to add a significant piece or two and actually improve the roster, should Chiarelli choose to do so.
