Horcoff++ for RJ Umberger

Heard this on the Oilers radio station today.. not as a rumor but as suggestion and just wanted to see what you all thought it would take.

To Edmonton:
RJ Umberger

To Columbus:
Shawn Horcoff
+ prospect?
+ draft pick?

What would it take?

I don't think Columbus would want to touch Horcoff unless they were given something with quite a bit of value along with him.

Generally, losing teams want to unload a contract like Horcoff's, not add it to their already extremely thin amount of cap space.

What if Columbus was to add in a bad contract they wanted to get rid of..
RJ Umberger plus a salary dump for Horcoff + a pick and a prospect..

It has potential.

While its very unlikely Umberger will be dealt after signing that extension (which is significantly overpaying him IMO) I will play along.

What about (at the draft)......

to Blue Jackets:
- Shawn Horcoff $5,500,000
- Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson $1,525,000
- Devyn Dubnyk RFA
- 2nd in 2012


to Oilers:
- RJ Umberger $4,600,000
- Steve Mason $2,900,000

Has anyone considered the benefit to Columbus of Horcoff - specifically that there is none?

Sure there is, he can suck up top two line minutes while not producing and add a sense of ice time entitlement to the roster.

as said above, there is no benefit for the CBJ to grab anything but long-term good players and picks.. they are dead last in the league and will be trading current players for prospects and picks... not players like Horcoff or Hemsky

Doubt Horcoff is moved for anything of value.

No much worse. How long was filatov with you guys? Horcoff has had more avg ice time than any other oiler forward for the last 6 years.

At a cap hit of $5.5M through 2015, no. There is still no market whatsoever for Shawn Horcoff.

I wouldnt say he's untradeable. He's a 40 point centre who's overpaid by about 2.5-3 million dollars. But he's way too overworked. Somehow the Oilers PK is 16th in the league(CBJ is 29th) and he averages almost 3 min a game on it(surely no one would suggest that due to our solid D or goaltending). If Gomez was tradeable....Horcoff is tradeable(no I'm not saying the proposed deal is something CBJ should do)
