I think any trade involving Comrie will have to see a centre moved to the Oilers as a part of the deal.
Although no one answered my question I take it Williams can play no other position then rw based on replys.So based on comments I will make these assumptions.
Handzus too slow to play for Oil
Primeau to expensive
Roenick to expensive and nothing to trade of equal value
4th line and depth centers r inadequate replacements for Comrie

so unless someone comes up with a good counter proposal I can't see anything working between the two teams

P.S.How is Chouinard?
