As reported on tsn.ca, the Oilers have signed Adam Oates to a one year contract.

If Oates can still play at top form, him on a line with Ryan Smyth could be very interesting. Even if Oates is completely out of shape, he's still one of the top 3 faceoff men in the game.

Edited for grammer.

Oates played pretty well for a man his age in Anaheim last year. He's a good pickup, and should bring a lot to that team both in a statistical and a leadership sense. The bigger implication? I take this as a pretty sure sign that the Oilers have abandonned hope of bringing back Mike Comrie, or acquiring anything of value for his rights.

Lucky Oates-he gets to play at the Heritage Classic this Saturday.

Kevin Lowe has been shopping around Comrie since before the season started, I believe. Nothing worthwhile has come of it.

He gets to be there but MARK MESSIER is the playing *IN* the Heritage Classic Game. Gretzky, Messier, Kurri, back together again! The Habs tried to get Patrick Roy as a ringer but he's busy.
