'We missed it': Edmonton Oilers GM admits NHL team botched contract with Vladimir Tkachev

The ink didn’t even have time to dry on the entry level contract that Vladimir Tkachev had signed with the Edmonton Oilers before it was tossed out by the National Hockey League. The undrafted, undersized winger, who did nothing but turn heads at Oilers training camp, cannot sign with Edmonton or, for that matter, any NHL team, because he did not play a full season in North America...

NHL shoots down Tkachev’s contract with Edmonton

The Edmonton Oilers seemingly believed that they found a bit of a hidden gem in Vladimir Tkachev, but that situation might fall through, as the league rejected his entry-level contract on Tuesday. Sources including Sportsnet’s Mark Spector and HNIC’s Elliotte Friedman indicate that he was declared ineligible for such a contract because he’s eligible for the 2015 NHL Draft.

Sent down were Martin Gernat (D), Curtis Hamilton (LW), Kale Kessey (LW), Iiro Pakarinen (RW), and Jason Williams (C). Why is this good news?

Questioning Some Of The Signings Made By The Edmonton Oilers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Apparently, hiring all of the hockey analytics people west of Toronto wasn’t enough to save the Oilers from signing Group II free agent Justin Schultz to the single most illogical contract of the summer and, by extension, to save every other NHL front office from Edmonton. But what else is new from this dysfunctional operation that...
