I'd like Prospal if he wasn't so old. At his age you never know if the player is about to fall off a cliff skillwise... ie Smyth.

Latendresse would be ideal if he weren't so damn injury prone... obviously every other GM thinks so as well or he would have signed somewhere by now.

Brunner I'd pass on... too one dimensional and weak defensively... another Omark but with a much higher pricetag essentially.

Boyes... would be another solid pickup. I'm really surprised he hasn't signed yet somewhere but I assume he must be asking for a crapload more than the $1 million he got last season so no takers yet.

Raymond is speedy but do we really need another player like him? I really don't think he adds a significant amount of the type of skills that the Oilers are missing and need in the bottom 6.

Out of all those I'd like either Latendresse (obviously if he could stay healthy) or Boyes. Cleary would be a good option as well.
