In Hartford and beyond:
The D corp right now
Struds are all UFA TO BE
That leaves Tyutin, Staal, Girardi signed and unlikely to be traded.
How sour is Edmonton on Schremp? I think Sather would have an interest if he could really get a GREAT deal. Buy low on Schremp and see if Renny can teach him to skate and play defense.
But what would the Oil expect back for Joni?
Pruchas value is pretty low and the other guys are all unproven.
Prucha + 1st round pick ?
I don't think Oilers and Rangers make good trading partners. What we need is a shut down d-man and a top 6 scorer.
If Staal and Tyutin are off the table, as many of you guys seem to suggest, then there is nothing you can offer that would be enticing enough.
Oilers have a bunch of of small skilled forwards, so enigmatic Petr Prucha is not very interesting to the Oilers' organization, I presume.
A deal that could be interesting from the Oilers' perspective is
Pitkanen for Tyutin and Montoya, but yes, I know it's not happening...
As far as Schremp is concerned, I don't think Lowe is in any hurry to trade the guy. Having said that, if the right deal came along, Schremp would be moved.
