We don't mean to be negative towards the Oilers, we swear we don't, but there's just so much material that it may seem that way to some.

The latest questionable move, or outright failure, from the organization comes in the form of the proffesional tryout offer they made to former Stanley Cup Champion Kris Versteeg. Now you might ask why bringing in a former Cup winner for a tryout is a problem, well it's a problem if he opts to sign with a different team after showing you he's still got it.

The Oilers reportedly wanted to use Versteeg in a limited role, and there had been rumors for days now that Versteeg would look to leave his tryout if that were the case, but no one expected him to turn around and sign with a rival team.

That's right, according to a report from TSN insider Darren Dreger the former King's forward will instead be signing with provincial rivals the Calgary Flames, which should make for some interesting moments when the two teams play each other this season.

It's not official yet, but if Dreger is reporting it you can bet this one is close to being done.
