Paul Kariya

What would you trade to get an elite LW?

I would trade Kariya and a 1st rounder along with a prospect in return for an elite LW.

Are we trading for an elite LW or Paul Kariya? 45th in points for forwards is exactly average for a top-line player (90 total top-line NHLers) and quite far away from "elite." The Paul Kariya of the late 90s was elite in every sense of the word, but today's Kariya is not. His $6 million cap hit really cuts into his value around the league as well. I would say that his value isn't all that high right now, at least from an Oilers perspective.

Kariya is not an elite winger. He seems to be going the way of Markus Naslund after he signed his big contract. Personally, I'd stay away from him.

I would say his value is next to nil. I can't think of a team that would be willing to give up anything substantial to so severely overpay this guy.

i wouldn't consider him elite anymore. he's still smart and really good, but not elite.

He also holds a NMC, so that limits his value some more.

Does he have a NTC? If so I really doubt he'd give that up since he really intended on going to St Louis all along to play with his brother.

Exact same deal as Naslund too.

He hasn't been an elite player since the Gary Suter (?) cross-check to his face.

Unfortunate, he was the reason I became a Ducks fan those long years ago.
