Days Until The First Oilers Game: 13 – Cam Barker
Today’s Player: Cam Barker. I’ve seen a lot of weird jerseys at the Jungle. Just the other day I seen a Shawn Belle #45 sweater. I can confidently say I have never once seen somebody wearing a Cam Barker jersey.
Career Oilers Stats:
Steve Tambellini gave Cam Barker $2.25-million just minutes after he was bought out by Minnesota for $1.083-million. That means, no including his salary from the Wild, we paid Cam Barker $90,000 per game. Now imagine if you paid $225 for one of those Cam Barker jerseys?

Why We Liked Him:
On July 1, 2011, the Oilers signed Cam Barker. On October 9, 2011, Cam Barker played his first regular season game with the Oilers. In the 101 days between us singing him and him playing his first regular season game, we didn’t have any real reason to dislike him.
Why We Didn’t Like Him:
Where Is He Now?
