The Oilers have already been active on Thursday, kicking off the league's lift on the trade freeze by moving Jordan Eberle to the New York Islanders in a direct swap for fellow forward Ryan Strome. "It's the first experience for me (trade), a whirlwind day, for sure, but I knew the day would eventually come".
It's one of the iconic moments in Canadian World Juniors history. After a 50-point season in his second year in NY (17 goals, 33 assists), he only managed 28 and 30 points in the two seasons since.
Eberle goes from a team that had Connor McDavid, the 2017 Hart Trophy victor, to Tavares, the first overall pick in 2009, an Olympian, and a player with two 80-plus point seasons under his belt.
The Oilers will play 29 games against their Pacific Division rivals (Anaheim Ducks, Arizona Coyotes, Calgary Flames, Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks, Vancouver Canucks and Vegas Golden Knights). It costs them to do it, but Eberle fills a need and the investment is reasonable considering that he is likely to have better percentages next year.
They will be reunited with the Islanders, and potentially on the same line, in order to give Tavares a scoring winger.
"We play in a sport where these things happen and you can't expect, even if you want to, to play in one place your whole career", Eberle said. I think I've proven in the past I can score (four 20-goal seasons, one 34). "Maybe, if that's where I end up, our games suit each other well".
But of course, he did look in the rearview mirror.
"It's something I've never gone through before, it's a different experience", Eberle said on a conference call.
"He brings speed and a knack for scoring not only consistently, but scoring big goals, in big games", Snow said of Eberle, who made back-to-back trips to the All-Star Game in 2011 and 2012.
His fondest memory isn't his first National Hockey League goal - a tally against the Calgary Flames in his first game that was named TSN highlight of the year - but making the playoffs with the Oilers this past season.
Strome is coming off a campaign in which he recorded 13 goals and 17 assists in 69 games. "For me, it's more of, in my mind, to get ready to the best ability that I can to get into camp and hopefully fit in".
