Especially with that 1st going back.

I'd do Hemsky+Gagner.

Edmonton is not going to give up the assets required to land Spezza. They're on the cusp of being the next Chicago/Pitts/Wash and now they're going to blow their load on Spezza? Yeah right.

Isn't that just some random blogger?

He probably has no more credibility than Joe Blow on here posting a proposal.

not a chance that edmonton gives up anything close to that for spezza, n edmonton giving up there first would result in the fans asking for tambos head..

it would b plain idiotic if tambo made this trade

This isn't even the best/funniest/worst rumor in that post, that would be Sheldon Souray to the Rangers for one of

Wade Redden (Which he says is unlikely)
Chris Drury (Except it would be Souray/Cogliano for Drury...which makes no sense)
Marian Gaborik (and something else from the Oilers)

1. Report fabricated rumour about two large Canadian markets
2. Include a big name player in the mix
3. Get hits
4. ????
5. Profit

And that's where I quit reading. When you've got to summon up the decrepit reason of your father in order to further rumors, you're a *****. Just like those angry housewives that live in your city.

a draft pick for a number 1 center isn't that bad actually. a line of spezza/hall/eberle would be awesome.

Except for the fact that its pretty much the same trade that killed the Islanders (Yashin for Spezza and Chara). Sure, if you want to ignore THAT.

Isn't this the 6000th time Hockeybuzz has had Spezza going to Edmonton?

They probably thought that they were due and decided to go with it again.

He's even throwing in Souray+ to NYR for Gaborik or Drury. No one wanted him for free, why would anyone give the Oilers more than a used jockstrap?

Bad rumor is bad.

Spezza is the exact type of center we don't need. We need someone we can lean on defensively who is great on the draw.

Basically, a franchise center. And personally (sorry Sens fans) I would NOT build my franchise around Spezza.

no its not that bad, in fact its downright absurd.
ottawa has no cap issues whatsoever so why would Ottawa ever make that trade.

lets also remember that Spezza has a NTC. would he waive to go to edmonton?
who knows, i know the first reaction is hell no. but perhaps playing with Hall and Eberle etc would be enough incentive.

Needless to say the 1st alone isnt anywhere near enough.

Spezza will void the trade with his NTC

draft picks are crap shoots and nobody thought chara would turn out as good as he did at the time of the trade.
