Sometimes I hate being a small market fan.
To be fair, that was only one poster. As an Oiler fan, I would obviously be very interested, but I would be very hesitant to deal Eberle. If anything, I would rather do a deal around Yak and Josi, don't know if the Preds would be interested though. It's been said a lot, but the Oilers don't have a ton of value to offer outside of the "big 4". If you guys were actively looking at deals for Josi, I think you could do better than the Oilers; a lot of teams pay big for young top-4 defensemen.
