The Oilers have sent Ryan Strome to the Rangers for Ryan Spooner

Ryan Strome got off to a bit of a rough start this year after signing his new contract. He put up just two points in 18 games, earning the name Offense Killer from your’s truly.

Ryan Spooner is a 26-year-old Center who so far this year also has only two points. However, his past production looks a little but more promising than Ryan Strome’s.

I don’t know a lot about Spooner, so this is going to be a bit of an evaluation period for the first few games. Interestingly, he has a Four Million Dollar cap hit through next season, it will be interesting to see how that affects the Oilers who are already over the cap.


Looks like an equal cap hit to Strome now.

As far as One-for-One deals go, this looks a lot more promising than the others.
