Tage Thompson
Girgensons (barely, but he also paced for more goals)
That’s 11 forwards, and with Quinn and JJP ready to make the jump after dominating the AHL last year, that would put him at the 14th forward position, just over Bjork. <strong>I have posted the information probably a dozen times, but Oiler ACGM's still think Foegele could crack the Sabre line up.[</strong>/quote] <div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>wojme</b></div><div>We have different definitions of both "clear" and "upgrade"</div></div> Foegele would not make the Sabre line up.

$2,750,000 until 2023-24 (UFA)
37 Warren Foegele L 82 12 14 26 26/82 = 0.317 ppg

<a href="/users/Timmah007" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@Timmah007</a> Which one of those four LW do you see Warren replacing?
Every one has more pp/g than he:
53 <strong>Jeff Skinner L</strong> 80 33 30 63 63/80 = 0.788 ppg
71 <strong>Victor Olofsson L</strong> 72 20 29 49 49/72 = 0.681 ppg
74 <strong>Rasmus Asplund L</strong> 80 8 19 27 27/80 = 0.338 ppg
28 <strong>Zemgus Girgensons L</strong> 56 10 8 18 18/56 = 0.321 ppg
He does not score well so he is not going to knock out Olofsson nor Skinner.
He is paid much more than Girgensons or Asplund who PK which he does not.

He does not play center so he will not replace Thompson, Krebs, Cozens nor Mittelstadt:
72 Tage Thompson R 78 38 30 68 68/78 = 0.872 ppg
37 Casey Mittelstadt C 40 6 13 19 19/40 = 0.48 ppg
19 Peyton Krebs C 48 7 15 22 22/48 = 0.46 ppg
24 Dylan Cozens C 79 13 25 25/79 = 0.317 ppg

He certainly will not replace Tuch, Quinn, Hinostroza or Okposo at RW:
89 Alex Tuch R 50 12 26 38 38/50 = 0.760 ppg
21 Kyle Okposo R 74 21 24 45 45/74 =0.608 ppg
29 Vinny Hinostroza RW 62 13 12 25 25/62 = 0.403 ppg

<a href="/users/Funksoljah" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@Funksoljah</a> I just read Timmah007 posts and came across your fun fact that Foegele had the worst +/- among all Oiler skaters.
More rational why he would not find a spot in the Sabre line up.</div></div>
