I can guarantee you neither of those deals are accepted by the other team.

Would you trade arguably the top defensman in the league for a package that isn't even the same quality as what Jeff Carter got? (Voracek, Couturier). We'd be looking at something like that PLUS Eberle/Yakupov and maybe even more if we want Weber. Any team in the league would up our offer of Petry + 1st.

Hanzal while not as offensively productive as Gagner is a beast defensively, he is huge, physical and EXACTLY what the oilers need, I feel Edmonton would have to add despite the loss in offense. There's quite a few Gagner type centers in this league but very few Hanzals.
