Cam Barker Out Three Months
While Renney hinted that the clubs best blueliner, Ryan Whitney, is getting pretty close to returning, Edmonton's need to upgrade their D has now been taken to a whole new level. With Barker gone at least three months, the Oilers have no choice but to seriously look at adding another puck moving defenceman and in a hurry. For some reason, the organization has yet to call up a defenceman but I would assume that will change before Saturday's game against Chicago. One would think that Colton Teubert would get the call but don't be surprised if recently re-acquired Taylor Chorney is brought back up to Edmonton. Chorney is nothing more then a depth player but he does bring the ability to move the puck to the table.
