well if it is true at the draft that they offered Omark around the league for a pick--his value is next to nothing. I think Omarks future is here in europe

I don't think that Buffalo trades Regehr anyway only because just like us, they really lack in the toughness department.
The Sabres used the trade for Regehr not only to strengthen their roster but their overall image around the NHL of being a place players would want to play - by persuading a respected veteran who had been with the same team his entire career like Regehr was to waive his NTC, the Sabres gained some positive PR in dismissing the negative reputation the city/franchise has had. Pegula also personally was involved in flying to meet Regehr and his wife and selling him on the city and team in Buffalo - so for the Sabres to trade Regehr only 1 year after that kind of PR victory would not only undermine what they accomplished but probably do more damage because of the perception of dishonesty by the Sabres in saying one thing to get a player to agree to sign/accept a trade, then ship him off thereafter when it suits them.

For that very big reason and....

Just tossing my 2 cents in...
....this one, Regehr can more or less be considered an untouchable. He'll only be available if he asks to be traded or if the Sabres decide not to re-sign him next summer.

Ehrhoff was signed as the Sabres' # 2 defenseman - and another key piece of the Sabres' image make-over last summer. Plus, he has a NTC. Don't figure him to be traded.

The consensus among Buffalo fans and media members is that if the Sabres deal a veteran defenseman, it will be one of Leopold (pending UFA), Sekera, Weber (albeit remote because of his relationship with Ott) or Pardy.

Treenasoil is saying there's no truth to the Buffalo rumours. As Per Garfield/Odie/Jon/Lyman.

So I guess we're going to trade with them?

I won't name him but I heard from a reliable Oilers source out and about this weekend who said the Oilers are really targeting a high end RFA. I am guessing a trade.

Hmm, very interesting.

Jeremy Welsh? Apparently he's a $18M cap hit: http://capgeek.com/free_agents.php?y...1&fa_type_id=1

Seriously though, it has to be Subban, Del Zotto, Kulikov, or Carlson (assuming it's D). Forward RFA's are O'Reilly, E.Kane, Benn, and Ennis.

They are all young, key pieces to their teams and therefore I can't see any of these players being traded by their teams unless there is some kind of strife behind the scenes that we don't know about.

They can target whomever they want, but when it comes to trades, their aim hasn't been very good. Sorry to sound pessimistic but this team does that to you after a while.

I'm in the same boat as you. I have heard stuff over and over whether it's at some restaurant and you run into somebody or on the radio. I don't get any hopes up for trades.

I think if when it happens, it will just come out of the blue.

I wouldn't trust manbearpig as far as I could throw it.

That said I have been told by a few people unaffiliated with the Oilers that there might actually be smoke there. We'll find out soon enough I suppose.

Please NOT Subban.
I hope it's Carlson.

Well hopefully it works out and we get the guy that we are pursuing.

I don't get the hate Subban gets. Lots of knowledgeable people have said that PK has rare ability. Lidstrom has raved about him in the past. Even Bobby Holik had some really good things to say about him:

"What interests me is P.K. Subban and the reaction, attention – positive and negative -he’s getting around the league. P.K. Is a player with tremendous potential, and he brings lot different dimensions to the game. The great Dennis Potvin recently said it very well – Subban’s game is complex. It will take little more time for him to refine it, but when he does, he will be a stellar defenseman for many years to come.

What’s great about watching P.K. is his passionate-physical play. He’s dynamic offensively, and most of all, he has his own personality
."

I would love to have Subban on the Oilers. He would be the difference maker on the back end to compliment the difference makers we have up front. If Oilers have a chance to get him, I would be ecstatic

Gilbert Brule signed in the Swiss League this morning.

Hopefully he can make his way back to the NHL at some point, always had a soft spot for the kid because of the style of game he played.

IMO his health was his biggest issue, too bad, guy had a great shot, speed to burn, and a big heart.

Exactly. I always got the vibe that his motor was too big for his body. Since junior he's played hard and fast, throwing and taking a large amount of hits. Being an undersized player, gotta think that played a role in his string of injuries.

I'm sure management will move on to Eberle as soon as Hall is signed.

They'll probably offer Eberle the exact same contract.

Brule always reminded me a lot of Dustin Boyd. Not in regards to their style of play but more so in that they both tried to play like big men but had small bodies. Flames fans were justifiably excited about Boyd's potential following a great junior season in Moose Jaw (48 goals!) followed by a near point-per-game rookie season in the AHL.

I was never high on Boyd because he scored a ton of his goals from in front of the net. He didn't score them like Eberle though where he finds the open space - he simply stood there, took a beating and banged the puck home.

Just like that style of play wasn't likely to transition well to the NHL, Brule's power forward style at under 6'0 didn't work either. If not for the injuries though, I also wondered if Brule could try to model his game after Peca and try to become a really complete two-way guy.
