I'd do this as an Oiler fan but as a new jersey fan i dont touch it with a 10 foot pole.

yeah, i figured oil fans would jump all over it... was just really trying to find a fit...

i think the devils may want to get a little bigger heading into the playoffs and was just wondering if others thought this worked in any way

devils are probably the biggest team forward wise.

not until you get Penner, then you guys can have a cheezeburger eating contest (btw, Penner wins it hands down)

If you already expect a poor result why would you even post the question? This is horrible from a NJ pov. There's really no reason for NJ to do any major trades right now. Maybe ADD a piece or two for a playoff run, but they would never think of replacing someone as significant as Gionta before a playoff appearance.

If Edmonton took Pandolfo back I'd do this.

Doesn't Penner net more money than Pando? I wouldn't do it. We don't need offensive help.

No thanks.

Now, if you were offering Gilbert, we could have a reasonable conversation... but not for Gionta, Gio doesn't have nearly enough value.

Clearly. We could demand your entire squad in return for Parise.

Just wait until he's a RFA, and hope Lowe goes for his signature "Lowe Blow" move. That's your best chance to getting him, but I can guarantee you no matter what he offers, Lou will match.

Just as you could offer up all the garbage you want and not get Eberle.

I have no interest in trying to aquire Parise specifically because it would cost far more than it would be worth because NJ has no reason to trade him and would only accept a major overpayment. Same as Edmonton with Eberle...he's not going anywhere unless he's part of a package with a big name coming back.

Yeesh...I think you're a little sensitive. All I did was put up a trade prop every bit as bad as yours as you go off about Lowe and RFA's? Ever heard of Decaf?
