    Those things change though. We'll see how Miller feels when the chips are down. Edmonton might be a hole to live in, but if Miller plays up to his potential, he might get there right in time to make some noise.

    What do you mean? No, not really I guess because it's from Sportsnet.

    No trade clause for both players - well, at least Miller who has placed Edmonton on his do not trade list. That being said, is Edmonton any worse than Buffalo city wise?

    Is Vanek destined to go to Edmonton after all?

    If it's Miller and Vanek you have to imagine one of the kids and Hemsky are going the other way.

    Miller, Vanek for Yakupov, Hemsky? Miller, Hemsky, Vanek all UFA's after this season. I believe Miller's wife/girlfriend lives in LA so I can't imagine him wanting to play in Edmonton long term.

    I think the Oilers are better off going for Halak or Elliott out of St. Louis to make room for Jake Allen. Both also UFA's at year end.

    I don't think it's known what Miller's no-trade list includes, other than he jokingly said "The seven Canadian teams and pick another one". Very likely the Oilers are on that list, but not 100% guaranteed.

    Hall scored 2 goals in 8 seconds, breaking Gretzky's record. That's the only thing that matters in Edmonton Smile

    Gretzky probably doesn't even know because there's not much hockey coverage in his beloved USA.
