The rest is just fantasy. The idea that Tambi or the Oilers would be proactive, that Legwand, Berglund, Laich, Anisimov, Dubinsky would be avaliable, that anyone wants Hemsky or the Oiler's lower teir prospects, that the Oilers should trade a lottery pick for 2nd liners(if any hockey is actually played).

Also find it funny when I see Weiss's name when it comes to Gagner's replacement as well. They are similar players(small, limited defensively) and Gagner is following Weiss's career progression step for step, so it's always amusing when you see someone suggest trading Gagner for an older version of himself to somehow alleviate a poor fit on the roster.
Has that been mentioned even once in this thread?
