If this even is an actual rumor and not 100% made up it is Sather trying to make DZ nervous.

But my money is on 100% made up.

So apparently they're not close on $$.

Does that mean DZ is asking for $3.75M?
Slats is stuck at $2.25M +\-

So, the Oilers have potential defensive sive in Schultz, but they figure to address that by adding another one in MDZ?

Unless that Entry Level talent is Yakupov, pass.

Do rookie bonus's still count towards the salary cap like they did in the old CBA?

Yeah that makes zero sense. Oilers wouldn't give up any of Eberle, Hall or RNH. Highly doubt they'd exchange Schultz or Yakupov for Del Zotto, and I have zero interest in Pajaarvi. So.. that leaves a whole lot of nothing.

The idea that Slats would threaten MDZ with shipping him off to Edmonton to freeze would make more sense than the actual rumor.

Schultz makes Del Zotto look like Adam Foote on the defensive side of the puck.

I said it in the spring. Schultz is Mike Green part two.

first off DZ is goingto resign with the Rangers.

Hypothetically if he was go to Edmonton Rangers need Ryan Whitney back for offense but he is always hurt. PLUS a guy like Pjarvvi or however you spell his name, guys to place in CT for depth

I would take Yakupov if they want to move him. They aren't moving Nugent Hopkins, Hall or Eberle so that is all it could be. And I doubt they would do a 1 for 1 anyways.

Probably nothing other than Glen posturing and leaking:

Rangers Report ‏@rangersreport
To clarify, Rangers can't sign Del Zotto until CBA ratified, but they are not close on $ I'm hearing.
Quote:
Del Zotto, an RFA, is apparently looking for a deal worth north of $3 million per year, while the Rangers reportedly offered Del Zotto a two or three year deal at upward of $2.5 million per before the lockout.

Edmonton really shouldn't waste their time unless they are giving us Yakupov. They should know sather does not get fleeced in trades, that is his strong suit.

Yakupov for DZ? You guys have acquired a very expensive taste of late.

Would anyone here do a 1-for-1 trade with Del Zotto and Yakupov?

So long as we're in silly season mode here yes, I absolutely would without batting an eye.

my understanding is that the bonsues only count if the player earns them so teams can no longer inflate the cap hit with unattainable bonuses to get to the floor

My real point was we are not trading our only true offensive defenseman. It would be stupid. Edmonton would have to overpay for us to deal him.

I see Stralman as an offensive dman but beyond that I see your point.

If we gave Stralman the same kind of power play time with the players we did DZ, I think he very well might put up 40 points.

I'm not so sure, in non-silly mode.

MDZ could become phenomenal. He could also remain inconsistent and remain at the "he has potential" stage.

Yakupov is in the same boat. Hasn't played a game in the NHL, he could be the next Semin or the next Malkin.

It opens up a huge hole on our defensive line this year though. That's for sure. And who knows what it does to our chemistry. I'd bat many eyes before I thought about doing that trade.
