In terms of NHL defensemen, I agree the Oilers could definitely cash in Comrie to get one of them. The question really comes down to which NHL teams can afford to move a defenseman?

I think Detroit is the only one.
Well Nashville has both Hamhuis and Suter in their system - and although Suter is probably untouchable - Hamhuis may be tradable. Atlanta also has a decent amount of defensive depth. Frankly I could get very interested in a deal like Garnet Exelby and a 1st rounder for MC. Boston has a couple of there is more out there than just Detroit.
