I would rather give Bourque a chance to turn his game around than throw him away. At worst he is still a 20goal 3rd liner with size. This is an awful proposal neither Bourque or Gionta are overpaid.

I would give Weber for Omark + 2013 3rd

It was a thing of the past under Gauthier. He acquired Eller, Cole and Bourque while dumping Cammalleri. It is obvious gainey's midget team is long dead.

If Oilers want to talk trade put Paajarvi into the pot and the habs can probably help his game but Omark is about as much a bust as one can get.

To Montreal: Paajarvi
To Oilers: Weber + Nashvilles 2013 2nd

Weber , rather keep Omark, but he has about the same value as Omark.

Omark is brutal at the NHL level. Montreal can have him for free.

I think I read somewhere that the oilers now have a policy that they are trying not to let anyone go for free when they are under 26

You never know what the Oilers policy is, getting information from them is like getting blood out of a stone. They gave Omark a qualifying offer, so it would be safe to say he has value and there must be some interest in him from other teams. The Oilers wouldn't have done it unless there was. Even if it's the Swiss-A league, 34pts in 24 games is not to bad.

Weber has played almost double the amount of games Omark has and is 1 year younger. What exactly were you thinking you were going to get for the Swedish Robbie Schremp?

Do you honestly believe Weber would crack the top 7 on the Oilers D. Note the Oilers rely on their D for their size and grit, the one thing the Habs D is lacking in.

I believe Weber is a more useful player than Omark will ever be because Omark doesn't belong in the NHL. Is the Oiler defense some amazing collection of defenders all of a sudden?

Oilers add a pick because it is likely Omark never steps foot in the NHL again while Weber has no problem slotting into a 3rd pairing and playing the PP as one of the oilers youngest dmen (time to develop into more).

The pick would be the most valuable piece, so why would the Oil do it? What would Weber bring to the table that would be of any greater value than a guy like Potter? Nothing, and quite frankly I don't want Potter at the table to begin with. Whitney, Smid, Petry, both Schultz's, and Sutton would be our starting 6. The only guy you could debate removing in favor of Weber is Sutton, but we need all the grit size and leadership we can get back there. Peckham and Potter are the extras, players of similar value to Weber. Then factor in Klefbom and Marincin as young guys knocking on the door and I fail to see how acquiring Weber is anything more than an AHL deal.

Omark is one point out of the scoring lead in the Swiss league, only behind his teammate and Detroit prospect Damien Brunner.
At this point, I think he's worth a 3rd or 4th rounder, nothing more.

I agree that we keep Bourque and give him a shot to resell himself. With regards to Omark I will give you an 8th rounder if you stop drying to dump him on the habs.

Nobody is trying to dump Omark on the Habs, the OP is a Habs fans.

trust me when i say we have more than enough 3rd pairing d-men in our system...Weber really isn't needed....just take Omark for free and we can end the drama in Edmonton with this guy. the fact he's still Oiler property right now is amazing! i have heard about being stingy with your talent, but man....

The Oilers just let go a very similar player, Jeremie Blain, I'm not sure, but I would think it would be a good bet they would pass.

Omark is just not a useful player at the NHL level. His trade value is pretty much nil.

We also need a physical presence on the second line next to Plekanec and Gionta and right now Bourque is the best option.
Well, we've been through this before in alot of different threads, but I just don't see Bourque as being all that physical. And his 18 goals last year was a bit deceiving because he was on a pace for dramatically fewer for us. And other players did play well and produce well under Cunneyworth. And Bourque did get a lot of icetime and quality icetime to try to break loose partly as a result of the rest of the team going into the tank and players being hurt. Sooooo... while I don't entirely discount the possibility of Bourque bouncing back (just as I don't discount the possibility of Omark making his mark if given a solid NHL opportunity by some team)... it's not something that I would *expect* at this point, given how terrible he looked for us. But we'll see. Maybe, if the league ever does get going again...

The only reason i'd want Linus in mtl is if he came with a side order of nachos.

And our captain isn't getting traded, unless that offer is better than the one you have proposed
