Hypothetically is this about to happen?

There are a few rumours floating around on the net that i found interesting. 1) Berard is talking to a western team. 2) Waddell is looking to package his 1st and a goalie for a top 6 forward. I saw some mention of Comrie.

Part 1) the oil sign berard for the 2.08million per year for 2 years and insert him into their top 4.

part 2) trade witht eh Thrashers
So does this make sense for the oil


Ship
Comrie, Rita and oils 1st 2004
to Atlanta

for

Stefan, Hurme, Atlanta's 1st 2004.

This is the deal that makes the most sense for the oil.


Our line up comes out like this.


Smyth Stefan Hemsky
Isbister York Dvorak
Moreau Reasoner Pisani
Torres Horcoff BG

Brewer Staois
Berard Smith
Cross Ferguson

Salo
Hurme

ext Bergeron, Semenov, Chimera.

Looks pretty good to me.

i dont like it...we dont need hurme...conks has a 1 way deal...Semenov is going to play for sure..."Old and Slow" (Ferguson) should not be on that roster ahead of Bergeron AND Semenov...Stefan is overrated and another Dan Cleary (maybe i shouldnt go that far but...) the first rounder is nice though...thats all

Yes i agree i would much rather have Semenov in instead of Fergy. Good call. I disagree about Stefan and i think haveing another czech on the team about his own age would be good for both Stefan and hemsky.

I don't think EDM would have to give up the first in that deal, and maybe not Rita either.

At least, I wouldn't make that deal

No dice. Too much dough to pay to Berard (we can do better for that much), and not enough return for our package to ATL, all this Stefan talk should really stop. Wishful thinking that he'll suddenly come alive. You get guys like that for LESS than they're worth, not more.

I would think Atlanta is trying to move Dafoe, not Nurminen or Hurme.

with salo, conklin, desualier, and valliquette, I think the oilers org is in pretty good shape as far as goaltending. I am not sure if we are the best trade partner for atlanta. The interesting news is that they seem to be willing to part with their #1 pick. Lowe should be all over this. That pick could end up being ovechin and there are 4-5 excellent defense prospects in next years draft as well. The atl pick is almost a guarantteed shot at one of them.

How about comrie + rita for excelby and a first and another defense prospect?

I could definitely see a deal happening between Edmonton and Atlanta, and agree that Comrie and Stefan may be involved, but I don't think the Oil need to give that much up, and I don't think we need a goaltender like Hurme.

I'm thinking a deal may be something more along the lines of:
To Atlanta:
Comrie, Rita

To Edmonton:
Stefan, Coburn

I can't believe how bad people are under-valueing Rita. He's our best prospect (IMO he is, I guess there is an arguement for JDD). I think in another 15-20 games he'll be playing in Pisanis spot. I'm not liking watching Stoll sit in the PB. This kid needs to be playing. But anyways to the whole goalie thing - I'd love for the Oilers to get Hurme or Nurminen if they could be had for cheap. Something like:
Nurminen/Hurme, Setaf, first
for
Comrie, 2 seconds (we got a second for Leetch I believe).
