It is hard to say. But the word is Ponikarovsky is on the way out at the deadline for a pick.

If that is true then they will have sent out Mayers, Hagman, Stajan, Blake, Ponikarovsky and replaced those five forwards with only Sjostrom.

So unless they want to play a lot of farm hands they could probably use a forward or two yet.

Yes, but why would Burke want Moreau who's on contract for one more year. Burke will use the cap space to sign UFAs. A lot better players than Moreau can be had at that price.

Unless they try something like Moreau AND Staios for Finger.
2 bad contracts that run out next year for one bad contractthat runs for 2 more years.

I think Finger is an upgrade over Staios. It also saves Oilers roughly 1.5M in cap space

Well I never said they wanted Moreau. I was just responding (to the quoted post) that the Leafs might need more than just Lundmark in the short or long term up front.

Then again who knows I did not think a going downhill Bertuzzi at 5 million on a multi-year deal for Burke on a Anaheim budgeted cap number was a good idea for him at the time. He will have some cap space but there is no guarantee he will use it wisely.
