Oilers - Devils

Just wondering what everyone thinks of this proposal between the Oilers and Devils, there has been some indication that Souray will move east depending on the right team. New Jersey has said to be interested

To NJD
Souray

To EdM
Matt Corronte - decent sized defender, excellent skater who brings that physical element
Nick Palmeiri - big gritty potential power foward
1st Rd Pick 2010

I'd do it in an instant... Unfortunately the Devils would not.

I'd do it just for the first rounder. The saved Salary would be worth it.

Really don't know that much about either, but is it really that far fetched? Maybe we throw in a prospect if need be?

Do we have to take salary back? If we do, I'd be fine with Oduya or White.

Nj roughly has about 2.5 mill in cap space at the moment but have some key guys out longer term. If we needed to take salary back i would add a later pick or mid level prospect from us and try to get Oduya

They are quite high on Corrente, I can't see him being thrown in along with their first rounder.
If Oduya took his place in the proposal I'd be all over it. Johnny O is having an off-year, but when he's on his game he is one slick defender.

I doubt the Devils would give up that much. The Oilers need to start a bidding war for Souray, that is the only way that would even come close to getting a package like that in return.

Souray is a beast and seems like a good leader but i think were expecting to much of a return,GMs arent that stupid hes got 2 yrs at 5.5 million and hes injury prone.

Gotta try find someone that really wants him or needs him. Find a team that has a GM that is on the hot seat. Other teams seem to be able to pull these moves, why not us?

Agreed. As dirty as that hit was I'd absolutely love to have that guy in our organization. I love the mean streak and he's a helluva defensive player too. We need to get some real grit in our bottom six, not the Pouliot's and Potulny's.

Those pain in the ass guys are good to have. Stortini should take on that role, he has tried at times but I think instead of backing away he rather fight all the time. Didn't we draft some aggitator this year? Bigos or something? Ir was he just a goon.

Yup, I'm not here to debate his actions. But he's a hell of a hockey player and I think his play is really underrated. Also, I think Cormier can be a top 6 player one day.
