They aren't going to trade those lesser players for even lesser players.

Having Brassard, Dubinsky, Anisimov & Umberger as capable top 6/9 centermen and with Johansen in the system it's quite plausible they could trade one for a skilled winger.

Not to mention Howsen could value guys like Hemsky a bit higher than other GMs for obvious reasons.

I'm not sure I would trade Hemsky for Anisimov.

Hard to call his demands unreasonable if that is the case.

The fact that Duchene has said he'll stay at center all year and Colorado already has Stastny aswell, the thought of O'Reilly being available seems quite realistic.

Say, for some reason, we deal Gagner for Luongo... Can we get a C for Dubnyk if we ship him out? Can we sign a stop-gap C until the offseason?

I like what I've seen of Charlie Coyle from the Wilds. He may still be a prospect, but he looks like what the Oilers need at 2nd C. I don't think the Oilers will get the vetran C their looking for, unless it's a massive over payment.

As I've been saying the last few years; Dubs is not a starter. Not saying he's the reason last nights game was 6-1 but he did let in a couple really weak sauce type goals.. as he does most games.

Gagner in my opinion is improving still. His face-offs are improving. His offensive game is improving. His toughness on the puck is improving. Why trade a 23 year old second line center when he's doing pretty decent.. Who's gonna take his place... Horquiff?

We left 2 guys in the slot open twice in the 2nd period too? News to me.

Doubtful.. unless Arnott is in game shape and will sign here. Either way, it doesn't look good if we lose Gags.

I wonder if Tambo chooses to attempt a big move...

The goalie we need-Luongo?
The center we need-O'Reilly?
The D we need-Subban?
The power forward we need-Clowe (UFA)?
The defensive top 4 D we need-haven't heard a rumored name here

Obviously we only have the pieces to make one trade, and I say that guy is P.K. Subban. Hearing his name as a possible trade chip is perfect. Anyone know what would be the asking price though?

J.Schultz-N.Schultz
Subban-Smid
Petry-Fistric
Whitney?

They would ask for one of the 5 young guys. Which will end the conversation.

The problem with Subban is we still don't know for certain what it is going to cost us to sign him and over how long, and then on top of that the price tag for the trade.

We don't exactly have a lot of intriguing assets that we are willing to trade. I am sure if Subban is available someone would outbid us for sure.

Montreal will want the moon for Subban, considering he's young and has high potential. They'd ask for one of our 5 kids.

I'd be willing to part with Klefbom and a 2nd. That's about it. And I don't know if that'll get it done.

And I'm excited to see Klefbom here.

PK Subban is overrated, besides why do we need another offensive minded d ? priority for the Oilers is a big winger or C

I know everyone thinks MTL would ask for the moon but I actually think they would get lesser value than normal because of the contract situation and teams knowing they were in a bind (which could be Colorado's problem with O'Reilly)

I wonder if Whitney, Paajarvi, Klefbom and a 1st gets it done. Or if MTL doesn't want Whitney because he hasn't been too impressive lately, maybe Petry, Paajarvi, Klefbom, 2nd

O'Reilly and Subban meet the needs of this team to a tee. O'Reilly is the physical, defensive 2C that would be ideal playing with our smaller skilled wingers and Subban is a top pairing defencemen with #1 potential. Both are still in the age range of this team's core which would be ideal.

There's no way Colorado moves O'Reilly within the division without a massive overpayment aka one of our big five. Montreal would want one of the big four for Subban and that's not happening in all likelihood either. If they move Subban Bergevin needs to get something back that he can sell to the fans. Magic beans are not that something. An offer sheet would be a great tool to use provided we're confident we won't be picking at the top again. Too bad Tambo traded that 3rd...

Value wise that's not bad at all for the Habs. I don't think they need Klefbom because they have Tinordi/Beaulieu. Petry would be a decent replacement for Subban and still young enough as well and Paajarvi is a nice piece. Petry, Paajarvi, 1st probably gets it done and that's two players that can go in and play right away for MTL and sell to their fans.

He's far from one-dimensional. Would easily be the most well rounded defencemen on our roster.

I am not even going to attempt to make a proposal or if this has been suggested, but is there any way a three way trade between the Oilers, Canucks & Habs could work if they got Luongo, the Oilers got Price and Gillis gets what he wants out of both teams combined...or did I fall off my rocker?

Off the rocker. Subban might get moved, Price no chance.

Carey Price's chances of getting traded are absolute zero, or -273 degrees Kelvin

Guy's not going anywhere

The only goalies available right now (that have a chance of being or are quality) are Bernier, Bishop, and Luongo, maybe Niemi if Sharks re-sign Greiss

I believe O'Reilly will cost a lot, money wise. I believe he is making 3 or 4M in the KHL right now, and read that if it costs them more to keep him they will give him more. I believe he wanted 5M from Colorado.

It would be safer to say that you be off your rocker to believe either gets traded.

What about Dubinsky from Columbus?

Hemsky for Dubinsky. Contracts are close in $$ value.


Hall-Nuge-Ebs
Dubinsky-Gagner-Yak


Oilers get more physical in their top 6 and a guy who can take draws if Gagner struggles.

This.

Leave the team alone. We're two games in with a fairly strong but as yet unproven line-up. Let them prove something first before going and mucking things all up, for christ sake.
