The ones that I can remember. Ones in bold are just not going to be moved, ones in italic could but only for a good deal and the ones not marked are available for trade proposals in my book.

Propose away.
Simon Despres, and Joe Morrow look to being having a bad time in the AHL, nice prospects, but debatable if their better then what the Oilers have. The Oilers would be looking for a physical RHS D and not another PMD. Pass on anyone the Pens would have to offer. The Oilers are looking for a gritty veteran D, and not one with a high salary

Edmonton definately needs more 25+ year old players on the team.
How is Pittsburgh shaping up for the cap next year?

If you're looking for cap relief we can toss you some prospects.
I'd doubt there's really anyone untouchable among Edmonton's forwards in the prospect department.

Martin for Paajarvi and 3rd?

Any of your senior d-men for our forward prospects?
In the next couple of years the Oilers will not have problem attracting UFA's. Pass on Martin, best find some other team. Good chance Martin could end up playing behind N.Schultz and Smid, meaning 3rd line and he's too soft for the Oilers needs.
