Oilers GM issues statement regarding Sheldon Souray's recent comments
“Sheldon’s comments are unfortunate and counterproductive, but we are going to manage through this in a responsible and professional manner. We understand Sheldon has had a tough year and he has a desire to play elsewhere. His additional comments regarding being “forced to play” when injured are far more serious and my stance is that they are demonstrably untrue.”
Steve Tambelllini is currently in Toronto to attend the NHL LG Draft Lottery Show on TSN and will not make additional public statements regarding this issue until he speaks to the media in Edmonton on Wednesday afternoon at 1:00 pm (MT).
