dealin oil 4

The oilers are laden with underperforming talented players. The only way we can get trade interest for them is to look at other team's underperforming players in need of a change as well.

Without further adieu...

Trade 1

Robert Nilsson and a 4th round pick 09

to San Jose for

Jonathon Cheechoo and a 3rd round pick


My thoughts are that the expectations on Nilsson in SJ would be a lot lower than in Edmonton so he may feel more relaxed and thus play better. SJ also gets 1 million in Cap relief for future trades.

Edmonton gets a bonafide sniper that may kick it up a notch under a new system and playing with Hemsky.

The draft picks even things out.

If this fails for both teams, they both have to deal with two more years on each player's contracts.


Any thoughts

wtf. Cheechoo is like an ex trillion goal scorer and Nillson's softer than cream cheese.

The picks even it out?

How can you afford that crack in this economy?

Point taken, But Cheechoo hasn't been great either the last couple seasons.

No, Cheechoo has been dropping off significantly the last couple years.

I firmly hang up the phone if I'm San Jose. Cheechoo could fetch MUCH more than that.

So your solution is to trade for more underachieving players?

How many new players need to be brought in a fail before MacTavish is axed?

Come on guys, Nilsson is worthless and every team in the league knows it. Let's try and be realistic.

And for the billionth time on this board, Cheechoo has not been playing with Thornton. He's been on the 3rd line because of the Sharks depth ahead of him. He's been playing with guys like Goc, Plihal, and Grier. None of which are exactly offensively-orientated players. Heck, Grier has missed so many empty nets this season it's become a running joke.

But to respond to the trade, no thanks from the Sharks point of view. They have guys better than Nilsson already available, and they are likely going to need to clear all of Cheechoo's salary in order to re-sign Clowe. So no contracts coming back.

Yah, Nilsson isn't worth more than Cheechoo. Sure, Cheechoo has fallen off of the wagon, but at least he was on it at some point.
