Tough, young, enthusiastic grinders to the Oilers.

It's getting to the point, well it's past the point, where the Oilers are mortifying to watch, future in mind or not. The rookies are completely gassed and the veterans, well, they suck and don't care at all. What's it going to take for the Oilers to get some personality on this team before the rookies want to give up?

We need big guys who go hard
Players to make the other team not want to come back
Guys similar to the ones we had in the early 2000s
Players who can rough it up in the corners and play
Players who make big hits even if it results in a penalty

Who has some guys like these they can dump and what's it going to cost us?

Pretty much have to develop those players for yourself, unless you grossly overpay. Their potential values in trades are much lower than their playing values to the teams that have them.

So, Victor Oreskovich for Anton Lander?

Major lols.

Chris Neil is your guy. He gives it his all every single shift and has no problem challenging his teammates and takes losing very personally.

Unlike a lot of other scrappers (he is only a middle weight) he is also able to take a regular shift in a third line role.

What do you want for him?

Something around Cogliano?

Hard to be the AHL player of the week while playing in the SEL.

I hear the Oilers want Dubinsky or Callahan. Callahan's one of the best grinders in the league... well, sorry Edmonton, but you can't have either of them.

Matt Ellis? He's pretty big and a great 4th liner. Not a gigantic hitter, but he goes hard every single shift and never, ever lets up. Really good at winning battles and cycling the puck. He'd be a really solid addition to any club looking for a 4th liner.

Yeah. Any young guy that fits the OP's criteria and is better than Hartikainen is going to be held onto like grim death.

Kevin Porter - Colorado
Derek Dorsett - Columbus
Jared Boll - Columbus
Chris Neil - Ottawa
Dan Carcillo - Philadelphia

Those are some that come to mind and probably wouldn't cost an arm and a leg to acquire.

We have some coming up, like Hartikanen. I honestly don`t see any of our 4th liners back next year, and these guys will be replaced by the type of player this thread is discussing...that said, I think I also said that a year ago.

AHL rookie of the month, I'm down for calling him up.

http://www.coppernblue.com/2010/9/27...-jere-lehtinen

Have Edmonton been drafting like Detroit lately? Hartikainen @ 163 , Eberle @ 22, Paajarvi @ 10, Marincin @ 46, Hamilton @ 48, Omark @ 97, Martindale @ 61, Roy @ 133, Bunz is playing half decent @ 121(phone call for IIHF team?)
