Zack Kassian Dealt to the Oilers

The Montreal Canadiens have traded forward Zack Kassian to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for goaltender Ben Scrivens. The Oilers will retain 24 per cent of Scrivens’ salary (a $2.3 million contract which ends after this season). Kassian’s contract also ends following this season and he’ll become a restricted free agent this summer.

As we all know, Kassian is not opposed to dropping the gloves (even if he doesn’t always win — see video below), having accumulated 124 penalty minutes two seasons ago and 81 in just a half a season’s worth of games in 2014-15.

This season, Scrivens has played nine games in the AHL, going 2-6-1 with the Bakersfield Condors (with a less than inspiring 3.47 GAA and .893 save percentage). In the past four seasons, he’s played with the Oilers, Los Angeles Kings and Toronto Maple Leafs, compiling a .905 career save percentage. Kassian has not played any games this season after he was entered into stage two of the league’s substance abuse and behavioral health program. Before this season, he was traded from the Vancouver Canucks, for whom he posted 59 points in 171 games over four seasons.

Both Kassian and Scrivens look like they could use a fresh start on a new team and both players might be able to get several chances to play. In Edmonton, Scrivens was banished to the minors and was stuck behind Cam Talbot and Anders Nilsson and in Montreal, Kassian was asked by the Canadiens to not report to their AHL team after he was sent down to the minors. Trouble seems to follow him around.

So while Scrivens should get a chance to start a few games while Carey Price is injured, Kassian’s best case scenario is to crack the Oilers bottom six, although given Edmonton’s good group of forwards, he’s already been sent down to the AHL for the time being.

Scrivens holds the potential to be a good backup goalie in Montreal and may be able to post similar numbers that he put up in Los Angeles. If he perform wells, he may be able to provide a lot of Fantasy value. However, it is unlikely that Kassian has the same potential as Scrivens to produce.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below what you think of this trade.

On an Oilers team that now has plenty of centre depth, Letestu will definitely be limited to a bottom six role. However, despite the fact that Leon Draisaitl started the season with the Oilers, Letestu is currently acting as the third line centre (because of Conor McDavid’s injury). In this role, we can see Letestu getting some decent production, not dissimilar to what Derek Roy did last season.

Anders Lindback 2015-16 Outlook

However, his save percentage plummeted when he went to Tampa. In Lindback’s first season, he had a .902 save percentage with a 2.90 GAA, and in his second season, he had a .891 save percentage with a 2.90 GAA. Last season he topped .905 save percentage for the first time since he was on the Predators. However, at the start of last season when Lindback was on the Stars, he had a .875 save percentage with a 3.71 GAA. It wasn’t until he was traded to Buffalo when he started to post good numbers.

We really thought some team was going to fork over a contract of four or more years to Williams, so we’re really surprised at how short of a term the Capitals got him for. We think this is great value for the Capitals and they didn’t have to break the bank. Williams will surely help in the Capitals’ playoff run and can add some much needed secondary scoring.

Francois Beauchemin 2015-16 Outlook

October 7, 2015 | by Scott Maran | Comments Comments Off
Beauchemin heading to the Avalanche might lower his point total a little because Anaheim was such a high-scoring team and — last season at least — Colorado was not. The Ducks ranked 10th in goals while the Avalanche was 21st. However, we don’t think that his point total will be too affected by switching teams, but rather that it will drop because last season his shooting percentage was more than double his career average.
