Ok, I know this is a long shot, but I would love to see O'Neill lace up for the Oilers. The guy has Oiler speed and grit, with the added bonus that he can actually finish the play by putting the puck in the net. Smyth and O'Neill would be perfect complements to one another, as they both play a similar style of game.

His salary is still within (barely) Oiler range at about $4 million, which is pretty much what Edmonton was paying Comrie once all the bonuses were worked in.

Anyway, likely wishful thinking, but I've always loved the idea of O'Neill playing in Edmonton, and it looks like he's been wearing out his welcome in Carolina recently... who knows?
