JF Jacques has signed a two-way contract (650K/105K) with the Anaheim Ducks.
Although Jacques had a short stint in Oklahoma City, he spent the majority of last season with the Oilers. In 51 games, he posted 4-1-5 along with 63 PIM.
No one can say they didn’t see this move coming. The team spent $3.3M on Ben Eager over the next three years (and threw some lovely clanky bits of change at Darcy Hordichuk). With Eager on line four, the hit parade will continue to roll.
KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED FOR…
Andrew Cogliano’s arbitration hearing.
Cogs made $1M last season, and he’s taking the team to arbitration. The date will be scheduled this weekend for sometime next week, so pay attention to what happens. Cogliano’s point totals were a bit higher than 2009-10, and it will be interesting to see where an arbitrator finds his value. If the cost is too high, expect Tambellini and Co. to balk.
WE MADE IT!
Thanks to you, today we celebrate Oil On Whyte’s one-year anniversary. I’d compare it to your seventeenth birthday when you got your first April Wine tape. Your older cousin was able to sneak in some Canadian Cooler and you spent 90% of the night hugging the toilet and sleeping on your uncle’s cheseterfield. It’s really been that much fun.
Anyways, a big thanks to you, the reader. You spend a few minutes of your day here soaking it up and for that, I’m thankful. We’ve got big things upcoming this season for you guys (and maybe, just maybe we’ll finish our “By The Numbers” segment when free agency calms down a bit).
Join us in 2011-12 as we
drink cheer on the Oilers to their first second season since the dark ages.
Thank you for reading.
