Rumor and Proposals Thread Vol. 3: The one where the Oilers win every trade

I agree in a perfect world we would package whitney with picks/prospects but not for Myers.. His lack luster play and bad contract scare me..

We have had a hard enough time getting free agents and such to want to come here. If we take the ONE guy who has always wanted to play here, and not let him finish his career here this year (hopefully) then we would be screwed. No player is going to want to come to a franchise with zero loyalty.

As for Whitney, we're taking back some salary in whatever deal occurs. I know I'm talking about Tambellini here, but if he could find a way to turn Ryan Whitney into Mark Streit, he deserves an extension.

What about a Khabi+ for one of their defence man?

Smytty should be remembered for his great contributions, he WAS a great contributer...

I don't know anything about him, but we need all the Schultzes.

Continue here.

Rumor has it that Brassard is available and that Whitney could be traded.
