For those who are saying the Oilers are not going to be able to have a "wow" trade without giving up one of the big 4 than they did not read the article or listen to the interview...

The reason for speculation from Bob Stauffer about the trade happening is that he believes teams that have "good" players that the team doesn't believe are worth what they are paying them are going to be moved when the lockout ends.

In this case (cap relief) you would not need to sell the farm to acquire these players. Players like Lou, J-Bo, etc..

If Luongo can pry Hemsky or Gagner out of Edmonton for Luongo I think they would have to consider themselves lucky... That deal doesn't get done unless there is some sort of safety net in the new CBA for Edmonton if Luongo decides to suck 3 years down the road...
