After their poor showing tonight on the defensive side, it's almost a guarantee that they won't trade a defenseman.

I cannot understand how Cam Barker plays in the NHL, I'm a terrible skater and I still think I can do better for at least a game than Barker.

I agree I can't see Burke doing much other than maybe a complimentary player or else he somehow fleeces another gm for first line talent, which I highly doubt. It's not like were anywhere close to lord Stanley.

A group of friends who were at the game for a Rogers employee shindig were up top and gave me the impression that other than the obvious Oiler players that Schenn, Gardiner, Gunnarsson and even Franson to a lesser extent were getting a fair amount of attention. Grabo more so than Kulemin and McArthur but word is Burke is not moving any top 6 plus Connolly and Lombardi. I really hope Grabo is resigned for 4.5 for 3yrs. So if Burke is going to make a move I suspect it will be fine tuning or if a team is interested in one of the D in a package for an upgrade to Bozak.

Well Cam was more suited for clutch and grab era

Still his heart and terrible skating are the issues with him and both should put him out of league soon enough

Still cant believe the trade Bowman pulled off ,, Barker for Leddy

I don't think it would be a good idea for Edmonton to trade D.

1. CLB - Yakupov (will probably deal Nash for another top 5 pick at the draft +)

3. CAR - Ryan Murray
4. MTL - Galchenyuk (they take the risk, desperately need a big #1 C)
5. EDM - Dumba
Anaheim will definitely finish ahead of Edmonton and I wouldn't be at all surprised if Carolina and Montreal do too.

Smid is pretty underrated and I would not be surprised if he ends up as one of the top shutdown defenders in the league at one point. (No homer) We would get absolutely killed if we dealt him right now.

Fail.
Except Burke himself said during the 2nd intermission that they were shopping for a big guy who can play too, but wasn't having alot of luck, because teams are holding on to them if they have em'. So right there is 1st hand proof that Burke is in fact interested in making some changes.

I sincerely doubt it. Not only is that not what we'd be looking for in a Nash trade (we want current defensemen, primarily), I can't see any of the other potential top-5 teams giving up such an asset in such a situation.
