Edmonton Oilers first week of Free Agency Period recap

The Edmonton Oilers have made some moves so far but is it enough?

Most would agree that it's a substantial amount of trades and signings but just not enough to fix the mess that the roster is.

Here are some of the major moves:

July 5th, 2013:

Inking now former Bruins defense man Andrew Ference, 34, to a 4 year deal worth $13 million annually

Shortly after the Ference signing the Oilers also announced the signing of 29 year old center Boyd Gordon for 3 years.

The Oilers also signed veteran goaltender 33 year old Jason Labarbera to a 1 year deal.

July 10th, 2013:

Oilers trade F Magnus Paajarvi and a 2nd round pick (2014) to St.Louis for F David Perron.

Edmonton also has some players to re-sign, some being C Sam Gagner and D Mark Fistric.

Restricted free agents Ganger, D Taylor Fedun, F Linus Omark, F Temmu Hartikainen, F Antti Tyrvainen and G Niko Hovinen have all been offered qualifying offers.
