Oilers Acquire A Magic Bean For Perron

Earlier this week, the Edmonton Oilers moved out disgruntled winger David Perron. It seems that Perron was unhappy with losing so many games, and didn’t like the efforts of some of his teammates (I can’t imagine why).

Pens acquire David Perron from Oilers for 2015 first-rounder

View image | We like it. We like it a lot. We’ve been banging the drum about Jim Rutherford traditionally making waves in January, and here it is. We’ll have some more info up shortly about Perron and his past, but the Pens just acquired a top-six guy. People may not like the Pens giving up a first-rounder, but you got to give to get.

Report: Edmonton Oilers open to trading David Perron

The Edmonton Oilers are once again in the basement of the NHL.
