I like Tootoo but would only give up a 4th for him considering his question marks(plus our 4th is only a scouts opinion from being a top teams 3rd)

Cogliano for Chris Neil.

I'd love to get Kyle Beach out of Chicago.

Maybe so, but not even close to first on my shopping list either, unless your 1st pick is included. So sorry no interest.

Where's the proposal here? Nothing but a nana poopoo here.

It's like the little spoiled kid who show's off that his parents bought him a snowcone at the park on a hot summer day when no one else has one. It sucks when a bully comes along and robs him of his snowcone, his lunch money and gives him a wedgie. Then while he cries with no friends he wonders why he was targeted and no one came to help.

Rangers have plenty of grinders they can offer Edmonton in a deal without bringing up Callahan or Dubinsky.

Would the Oilers want a grinder as part of a deal for Hemsky or Penner?

To Pit: Ales Hesky and 3rd/4th Rd Pick

To Edm: Tangradi or Despres, Max Talbot, 1st Rd Pick

Would something like this work?

You may want to reconsider. Newbury may actually be a decent 4th line checker only good for the next year or so while he peaks in his career.

Weise on the other hand, IMO is a tad slow for the NHL but outside that he's got everything you want for a guy to be a solid forechecking 3rd liner and a nose for around the net with good offensive forechecking instincts and he's only 22. As he begins to think the game faster and gets faster he could be a solid 3rd liner. This guy's enthusiasm and tenacity is off the charts.

Yes, yes it would.

I believe the Oilers would like Despres in such a deal, which would allow Pittsburgh to keep one of the few decent wingers they have.

As an Oiler fan, isn't that an overpayment ? My understanding is Despres is a helluva prospect.

Exactly, thats all he is, is a "prospect", so that deal does work.

Despres + 1st rounder + Talbot

I consider him our top prospect ahead of Tangradi and Beau Bennett, but I wouldn't hesitate to use him to get a legit top line winger.

So I guess I'd be willing to change it to Despres, a 2nd, and Talbot if you guys think that is more fair

I do think this is what the Oilers would want. They dint have to move him this year so it SHOULD take an overpayment.

But more on topic with this thread, is Talbot the kind of grinder you guys would want? Or someone bigger like Rupp?

I agree, it should be an overpayment, look at what Versteeg and Fisher fetched in return.

Hemsky >> Fisher

Hemsky > Versteeg

If it's not overpayment, Hemsky is underated and Oilers will keep him.
