Why are you even worrying about this? Because someone decided to be a troll on twitter?

Do you worry year-round about Gillis trading Edler/Kesler/Sedins for scraps?

Or because teams can't discuss trades yet, so there really is no deal. I'm probably just crazy though.

Honestly, if it's for something so crappy, just ship him to Florida. At least that's the place he want to be. He's done enough for this team and deserves that if we're getting such a crappy return.

My opinion is that Gillis hates Burke so much that Burke is the last person Gillis will give a good deal too. Just not gonna happen.

We better get used to Bozak, Frattin and a 2nd-eque packages cause that's all we'll get in the summer.

At least there is something to work with for Kadri (Although, i've never even like Kadri since his draft year). I'd prefer none of the above.

The only prospects i'd like in a deal with TOR, besides the obvious Gardiner/Rielly, would be Matt Finn, Josh Leivo, Korbinian Holzer and perhaps Tom Nilsson. But honestly, i'd prefer not to deal with Toronto.


I'd want Kadri over Frattin and/or Bozak for the reasons you listed. He's younger, more room to grow.


Leivo would be good.


Basically, if a trade goes down with TO that doesn't include Gardiner/Reilly as the main prospect, people (not you in particular) are going to flip. I think that's pretty unrealistic. A 1st and Kadri/Finn as the base or the heart of the deal is OK by me.

Might as well deal everyone else for scraps if Gillis does something as stupid as this.

I love how y2k thinks the world and franchise is over because an expendable asset is moved.

Either way, he's going to be upset about the return so I expect nothing less. I hope he sticks by his word of becoming an Oiler fan and joins their board.

Personally, I would be severely disappointed in Gillis and it would probably be the death blow for my support of him as it already has been waivering a bit.

Yet you would be happy to see Gillis walk away from the twins in a couple years. Even though they're infinitely more valuable to this franchise than Luongo.

50 year curse!

Explains why when the twins did nothing in the 2011 playoffs we still made it to game 7 of the SCF. Oh excuse me, they showed up for a couple games in the SJ series.

Can we at least wait and see what the actual trade is before bashing Gillis and everything in general?

Apparently an impact player for a franchise goalie = over valuing Luongo, and Scraps for a franchise goalie = realistic. It's sickening how far people have lowered their expectations.

I would literally buy an Edmonton Oilers jersey, buy tickets to a Canucks/Oilers game (because that money is just going to be given to the Phoenix Coyotes anyways so it's not like I'm necessarily supporting the Canucks) and cheer for the Oilers.
Then just do it...looks like you want to jump bandwagons to the new shiny team anyways...just trying to find an excuse..fans like you make me sick...it's about the team not the players...I don't give a rats ass who we do or do not have on the ice I am a supporter of the team.

I hope you're not trying to tell me with a straight face that Luongo is worth more to this franchise than the Sedins.

Not relevant to the fake deal, but why are people talking like Frattin is a downgrade from Kadri?

I doubt even Burke has full faith in Kadri's ability to play against men. I would much rather have him than Kadri. Zero interest in Nazem.

I would only want Kadri so we could flip him to another team for an asset that can help us now.

I like Frattin more too. Kadri seems more an more like a bust to me. He's either a top six player or useless IMO. Frattin has skill and is still fairly gritty that I could see him as a pretty good NHL third line player.

Pfft don't pretend like you'd be okay with Gillis trading the Sedins. We all see right through you.
