It was on the Oilers official Twitter feed. Cole, and a 2nd round pick + for RNH. It appears to be gone now...

Maybe someone in their PR Department jumped the gun.

There would have to be a lot more salary being moved by the Pens in order for this to work. The difference in cap hit between RNH and Cole is too large to make this viable without another move.

Yeah -- my thoughts right away, too. Maybe they are working on finalizing details and a Tweet got posted early? I don't know.

Ugh. Looking back at the screen cap sent to me, you're right. "@EdnontonOilers"

Sorry! I hate myself. :cry:

Soo, seems fake? To bad, Cole, Hagelin and a 2nd for RNH would have been nice ...

Don't hate yourself. Maybe we traded with Ednonton for Ryam Mugent-Hopkims?

I think we are going to be a very disappointed bunch when Cole's trade is announced, especially after the RNH rumors

Depends on what people's expecations are. Expecting Cole for RNH is a pretty far reach, unless there are a few other pieces in the deal.

Cole for Bozak would be ok, but, if Cole is allowing teams to talk extension, honestly, Bozak isn't enough of a return unless we are allowed to work out an extension with him too.

I'm hoping for Faksa, Shore, Reinhart type.....a good, young, cost controlled 3C. Will it happen? Probably not, but GMJR has been known to shock us before.

Cole being trade will include him having an extension(I believe what is reported), so they could very well get good value in return.
