Observations:

 

January 2014 – We could sing ‘On the Road Again’ but Scrivens is actually now back at home. The Oilers are searching for whatever they can find in the crease and his familiarity with coach Dallas Eakins makes him a comfortable option to call upon. His numbers are great in the NHL through 50+ games, yet his style still is very uncomfortable to watch but gets the job done so far, much like ‘The Dominator’ or Tim Thomas. As long as Eakins is in Edmonton, Scrivens should have some job security, but they will try and find a much stronger and proven starter to play in front of him. Seems like I have to bite my words on my expectations that his play would not support fantasy considerations, fresh off strong postings on a strong team, he has continued ticking for the Oilers despite their lowly struggles.

August 2013 – Scrivens was dealt to LA as part of the package for Jon Bernier, and now inherits pretty much the best job on paper in the NHL, temporarily. He will now sit behind Jon Quick playing once every three weeks, enjoy the California lifestyle in the lights of LA, and will once again be a favorite in the West. The Kings are big on up and comer Martin Jones, but feel one final tour of duty in Manchester is needed before he is given an NHL opportunity, Scrivens gives the Kings a competent bridge for a year. His numbers should remain decent, but barring an injury to Quick, I wouldn’t expect 20 games that he seen last season and he has no opportunity to move up in this organization only backwards.
