Sounds like it is official now.

Foster makes 1.8 mil, Sutton 2.25 mil.

Thats another 450K the Ducks can throw at Konopka or another checking line forward.

WOW, the Oilers are going to be tough next season. All they need now is a Mac signing to cap it all off (don't see it happening thou).

From a playing perspective I'd rather have Foster seems like a pretty wierd deal, Edmonton must have been pretty desperate to get Sutton.

Slightly of topic but does anyone know whats happened to Ranger, can't remeber his first name, plays for Tampa Bay.

Paul Ranger. I don't know what his contract situation is with them, but he left Tampa a couple of years ago on some kind of personal leave and never went back.

If I'm not wrong he would have been a free agent last off season, but as you said he left Tampa because of personal issues and I think he retired from hockey. At least he hasn't returned playing somewhere.

Never found out why he left Tampa.

He was so bad on Edmonton last year that he was a healthy scratch on a team with 4 legit NHL defenseman... It was ridiculous.

I hope he finds his game. He was absolutely brutal.

Sutton is this year's Vandermeer/Strudwick for the Oil.

Hopefully its a good fit for both teams.

Ducks were looking for a right handed shooting d-man to pair with Fowler.

Visnovsky-Lydman
Beauchemin-Sbisa
Fowler-Foster
Brookbank

I like our D.

Oilers following the "if we can't beat ya..we'll beat ya up" approach. I like it.
