Hits: 08/09: 61 (Patrick Eaves had 134...), 07/08: 99 (in comparison, Cole had 186), 06/07: 77 (less than Justin Williams...), 05/06: 43.

Average stats for last 4 seasons: GP 82, G 38.25, A 43.5, P 81.75, +/- -1, SH% 12.39, PM 62.25

He scores and makes plays, but doesn't win faceoffs, doesn't hit as much as you would expect, and is a career - player. At $8.25 million a season cap hit, I'd rather pass on Eric Staal.
Terrible numbers but he would still be the Oilers #1 Center by a long shot.

I don't think a single person ever argued this.

Unless a franchise player is coming back to Carolina for Staal, there is no chance that the Hurricanes will trade Staal. None.

And the Oilers don't have a franchise player.

Seriously, this board is irrationally fixed on FO. Give your heads a shake.

Staal is an elite, big C who overtakes games when it matters most. A top line of Penner-Staal-Hemsky would be very legit. If he is available (which I don't believe he is), I'd definitely hope Tambo make a play for him. We can't be picky about salaries at this point if we want an elite player. We're not getting a top UFA, we're not getting NTC guys, we're not lucky enough to get a top-2 pick in a lottery, simple as that.

In a more realistic optic, if we aren't tanking yet, I wouldn't mind Aaron Ward to add a bit of physical to our D. (or to help us tank, since he sucks so much this season)

And the Oilers are happy to pay it for d-man of his calibre.

Either do about 20 other teams then. We have 2 players scoring at PPG +. so...

Don't know much about Oduya other than that he had a very good season quietly last year. I believe he is signed to a good contract too right?

No on oduya as he is pretty much a darker version of Chorney but i am pretty sure that the Oilers could use alot of what the Devils have in prospects and players such as Halischuk, Cormier, Clarkson? Lots of crust there

Thoughts of:

Lubo

For

Eric Staal

I do know Staal is having an off year, however the guy is a proven point producer. We have way to much money tied up in our mediocre defence core so this would definitly help out.

And when Hemksy were to return next year would FINALLY give us a legit top line.
C*anes ask for a first rounder and either smid or grebs or eberle

Is that including Lubo?

If not,

Your telling me - that a coin flip in a first rounder and a 5th dman in Smid would bring in Eric Staal? Or Grebs who is an RFA next year I beleive.

If this is including Lubo,

That is a drastic overpayment for Staal in my opinion.

Of course that's in addition to Lubo, you're talking about one of the top 5 centers in the game

These trade proposals for Staal are so off-base

Carolina, a team that is going to re-build for the next couple of years have NO REASON to trade thier top young star for a 33 year old defenceman...it makes no sense.
If the stars alligned and tambo **** a gold brick this morning, staal coming to edmonton would cost picks and young players.

Gilbert (or maybe Grebs), Cogs and a 1st gets their GM on the phone


I'd rather keep our first
