Before getting blasted, I realise most of the below players under contract have NMC, NTC or modified versions thereof.

Vancouver
Tanev
Bieksa
Edler
Kesler

Philly
Hartnell
Grossmann
Coburn
B. Schenn
S. Couturier
Maszaros

Toronto
Franson
Gunnarsson
M. Fraser
Kostka (UFA - possible no.7 guy)

Tampa
Malone
Hedman
Brewer
S. Salo

Washington
Alzner
Laich
Brouwer

Oilers primary pieces to offer: Gagner, Hemsky, Paajarvi, Hartikainen, Lander, No. 7 over-all pick, other draft picks.

There are some good options out there, especially if the above teams are primarily looking to shed salary and players can be convinced to waive to come to Edmonton.

How about this for a bold move: Petry and no.7 overall for Victor Hedman.
Vancouver won't trade with us.
Toronto is in a good cap situation so I don't know why you listed them.

Tampa, Philly, and Washington are legitimate teams to target.

Hartnell waived his NTC to come here before Tambo got nervous and pulled out according to a Matheson piece a few months ago.
Malone refused to waive his NTC to come here according to Stauffer on the radio a few weeks ago.

I'd take either of those 2 as a big LW is exactly what this team needs.

Hedman, lol.....I'm not saying you're making a bad offer but really dude....it's like Tampa offering us #3 and Richard Panik for Taylor Hall. There's no way they're going to trade Hedman.

Caps just extended Brouwer a few weeks ago so they won't deal him. Laich is interesting....he's well liked in that room by all accounts and they missed him a lot this year....they're probably still playing if he was healthy.
