None of those assets combined gets either of who you want. In other news I would like your cash or credit cards and I am offering my belly button lint.

Nobody outside of the Oiler fanbase and Czech teammates/staff understand Hemsky's ability, so there will be no way for us to make a fair trade here.

A lot of us understand the ability.

But what most of us understand more is you have to actually be on the ice and not on IR (with a $5 mil. cap hit) to use any of that ability.

Dunno, depending on what Carolina has left in their D prospects pipeline, I don't see why some combi of Oilers 2013 draft picks could not get you McBain. The players listed not so much though, agreed.

this is a pointless conversation.....Ruutu has a NTC through the first two years of his deal. Lets move on.

Hemsky's the only one Carolina may have an interest in, but not for either player you're wanting.

If Hemsky was not injury prone and did not play so poorly last season EDM fans would have zero interest in trading him. The same reason EDM fans are willing to trade him is the reason other teams fans don't hold him as high value.

Why do Oilers fans have to make insulting proposals involving the Hurricanes on a weekly basis? Carolina just acquired Staal for a heavy price, so I highly doubt they're going to gamble on the potential garbage you listed here.

Player: Hemsky
Issues: Injury prone. Lacking drive.
Value: Early second rounder + 4th line forward/7th d-man



Player: Whitney
Issues: Injury prone. Lost offensive touch. Has lost a bit of speed.
Value: Middle of the pack second rounder.



Player: Jones
Issues: Tweener. Lacks intensity. Doesn't do anything amazing.
Value: Third rounder.



Player: Belanger
Issues: Soft. No offence. No passion. No conditioning.
Value: 4th rounder at best.


Player: Edmonton's 2013 1st rounder.
Issues: Could still turn out to be a top 5 pick even if Edmonton picks up some good players over the off-season.
Value: Unmeasurable.

I like Ruutu, I think he's what the Oilers need and but that 35% FO percentage would make me say no. Also I don't like that 4.75mil cap hit for the next 4yrs.

Is McBain a improvement on Petry or Whitney, IMO no and would end up playing 3rd pairing. He's not the best shot blocker and his hitting is almost nonexistent. The Oilers have better coming up through the system, Oilers pass.

Ruutu played wing all last year, why would you care about his FO%?

Was listed as a C, my mistake. I would still pass there is no room for another LW and the Oilers have a couple of good ones waiting in the wing.

McBain could be in play for Hemsky, but Ruutu can't go anywhere. The Canes lack physicality in their top 6 F and Ruutu brings a ton of that, so trading him for Hemsky would not be a move in the right direction.

Pretty solid assessment, refreshing to hear from an oiler fan

Did Ruutu not JUST get re-signed near the deadline? why would Carolina trade him? that would send the wrong message to the team and any prospective free agents IMO

Hemsky basically missed a full season out of the last 2 due to injuries, takes a while to get your game back.

I will be interested to see his value after a season playing with Yakupov.

Having just dealt Dumoulin, I kinda doubt the Hurricanes are going to trade another young defenseman.
