Completely serious, if the OP wants Bolland AND Hjalmarsson, one of Eberle, Yakupov +, Hall, RNH, or Eberle are absolutely coming back. Even then, hawks get neutered in the deal because they'd be short a top 4 Dman and would have even worse center depth.
You decided to go there? What a shock from yet another Oiler hater.
Epic fail.
Terrible idea of value - why post something like this?
Kane, Johnny T, Kieth - those are the kind of players we'd be talking about when you even mention Hall, Eberle, Yakupov, or RNH.
Bolland + Hjalmarsson does not equal franchise player - it's not the Oilers fault they have so many of them.

So you would have to find what Oilers can give for Bolland, keeping in mind that they are getting at #2C in the deal already.

So I would think a Hemsky for Bolland deal could be had but I don't think it is worth it from Edmonton's side so compensate with some picks?

To Edm:

To Chi:
Sam Gagner
Ales Hemsky
Give it up, why would the Oilers want a small C, even if he's good defensively. They need to get bigger, not smaller, as to Hammer this has been done before and most Oiler fans know that Hammer maybe a good positional D that is a OK shot blocker, but he's soft. He'll only throw 40-50 hits per year and after the Hawks trade for Oduya he was playing 3rd pairing minutes, around 16-17mpg. He played the Hawks PK, which was 27th last year. Not much of a upgrade if any, the Oilers get hosed with your proposal.
