I for one really like Gamache and think he would gel nicely with the Oilers. Ilya Nikulin is sort of intriguing but Safronov has the help now name tag. Personally i would rather Gamache than Stefan so this is what i think the Oilers should demand from Atlanta.

To Atlanta: Mike Comrie and Jason Chimera/Shawn Horcoff

To Edmonton: Jani Hurme, Garnet Exelby, Simon Gamache and the option to flip first round picks in either 2004 or 2005

How does that look value wise...our defense just got a whole lot better and two of Gamache/Salmo/Rita/Sarno/Stoll become regulars rather than minor leaguers. My personal picks would be Gamache and Rita.

I think another deal is necessary though and it should involve Philly.

To Philly: Tommy Salo, one of Jason Smith/Eric Brewer, and a 3rd rounder

To Edmonton: Simon Gagne and Jeff Woywitka

I like these deals and our new depth chart looks like;

Smyth Gagne Hemsky
Torres York Dvorak
Moreau Reasoner Pisani
Isbister Gamache/Sarno/Stoll Laraque

Pressbox = One of Gamache/Sarno/Stoll/Rita and whoever is left out of Chimera/Horcoff

Brewer/Smith and Semenov
Staios and Bergeron
Exelby and Cross

Pressbox = Ferguson/Woywitka


Wow we'd gain a lot of depth all the way around with those deals...I hope if KLO has the chance to swing those deals he would do it pronto.
We would have 4 regulars leaving town (2 forwards, 1 d-man, 1 goalie) and 5 new faces arriving (2 forwards, 2 d-man and a goalie).

What does everyone think...are these proposals feasible or am i out to lunch?
