Foster's your guy on the point and Brule's continuing to get better. What type of player, prospects or picks can Edmonton get if these two are packaged together? Brule is capable of playing on the wing or center.

I don't think anybody would want either.
Usually you package a bad player with an asset to get something good back, and both of these guys have very low value right now IMO.

How is Brule getting better? When was the last time he played?

Prepare to be underwhelmed.

Foster = waivers

Brule = 1 more chance to establish himself as a bottom 6 guy.

I have hope that Brule can pull this off, but he'll still be gone after next year (short of a complete turnaround). He won't get qualified in the off-season 2012 @ 1.8mil.

So why would teams give something up for this, and how do these guys even upgrade another teams roster (ie what team is looking for 4th liner or bottom pairing D????).

Done. Would love to have a defensively responsible C who's decent in the dot and could be a mentor for the younger Swedes.

I think that there is a team that will give a 3rd for Foster because of his shot. There are plenty of teams that need the big shot and at 1.8m, it is cheap.

Don't say Tampa Bay didn't warn you about Foster.

It would be good for us too. Bru could catch his opportunity in Arniels system. And we would get money for a defensive, speed and moving defensman.

... Or Shea Weber...

You stay away from our pipe dream! He's our completely unrealistic off-season acquisition!
