4. Brian Lee.
I. We should grab Brent Burns from the Minnesota Wild. What will it take? You guys decide. For now, I think he would be the #1 dman the Oilers are looking for.
To help accelerate the youth movement, we should also look to add Jeff Skinner. He would really compliment Hall and we should throw everything we have at Carolina to make this happen.
Basically, what I'm saying is that if we add Burns & Skinner, the Oilers will make the playoffs next year.
II. Gagner for Kane straight up. I've been asking for it for so long but it never happens. Why? Just do it Tambellini.
III. Trade whatever we have to Boston for Tuuka Rask. That guy is pretty good and would be our #1 goalie for many years.
IV. Cogliano for Brian Lee = no more Strudwick.
What exactly are we giving up for Skinner. Eberle? That's at LEAST what it will take, probably more. And what is "whatever we have" for Rask? Another high end prospect maybe? There's just gots ta be other options than what you are proposing.
