if we want a heavy weight to play against Toronto or Boston why not just go after Parros
he has a 1 year deal at 990K, and I'm sure Panthers would let him go for not much

Prust / White / Parros
Moen / Prust / Parros

either combo would do very nicely

Winning the fight is a different story. Eager won't even fight. So, yes, those guys do fit the criteria better. I also brought up Kassian as the primary guy to get over Eager, you gloss that point over nicely.
Kassian was covered in the first sentence of my first reply.

He can't skate or hit.

If they were that worried about having a heavyweight they woudln't have let Alex Henry go to Europe. The team doesn't need a heavyweight, they need their PP to be better so teams don't act like neanderthals.

The original post asked what the Oilers would need to move him. We don`t want to, so we`d need an overpayment. Nobody is expecting Montreal to overpay, but, again, if Montreal is asking about Eager, its for something we need, not depth picks and ****** prospects.

Parros can't play hockey.

I think you misunderstood. I wasn't suggesting you weren't following the rules. I just find that at some point, if someone grow tired of a thread, they should just skip over it instead of polluting it with the same thing over and over again. But that's just me, I guess.

I'll give you the example of the "Value of Carey Price" thread. I find it to be useless because I just can't see being even an hypothetical question. Instead of debating in it, I didn't go read it. Others, I'll post my two cents (can we still say that now that they're gone?) and I'll move to something else. This allows those who still want to discuss it to do so in peace.


On my Twitter the other day, I suggested Moen and there were some mix responses. Some liked it, others didn't. If you find my sarcasm silly, why do you follow me on Twitter and keep reading me here?


The goal isn't to come to an agreement here, it will NEVER happen. The goal is to have discussions. You don't like the thread? Move along. I find Eager useful, others disagree. That's okay, agree to disagree. Easy isn't it?
I don't follow anyone on twitter. I have no use for something that starts with the word "twit"! I don't follow anyone here, either. I was commenting on a post where you directly involved me by quoting me.

I join threads to discuss trade proposals. Sometimes along the way I feel the need to defend my team, players, and some fellow fans. At some point the thread should be closed because it is going nowhere. When that happens, I suggest the thread close. Sometimes, a moderator agrees and closes it, sometimes not.

If Eager is so useful, could you please make a proposal so the thread might get back on track? Easy, isn't it?

Actually, "Montreal" isn't "asking" for Eager, ONE fan from Montreal was, and his was pretty much the lone voice from "Montreal" interested in Eager. The resounding majority of Montreal fans in this thread have been clear that we do not want Eager at all, never mind for an overpayment. Please keep that in mind.

Yes, you made that "offer" with post #23 on page 1. It got nothing in the way of a counter offer. Heck, it didn't even generate a real reply from an Oiler fan. All you have done since then is argue with people. You have done nothing to further the discussion with any other trade proposals. That is why the thread should be closed. It is great to see you laughing without realizing you proved my point for me.

So, shall we let the thread die, will you make an actual new proposal for Eager to be discussed, or shall we continue this pointless stupidity until a moderator shuts it down or I decide to let you "win" by giving you the last word so you can feel like a man (I know where I would place MY bet!).

So we were answering that one fans question anyway. Don't get pissy if you don't like the answer that fan gets. No need to take it as personally as a lot of Habs fans have here. We don't want to trade him, that's that.

Exactly. And it's fair. Some here are underrating Eager. That's fine. This is why the thread has the "Value of" tag instead of "Proposal".

I am just wanting to get the feel for what Oilers' fans think and to be honest, I like what I've read from them. Some Habs' fans get too defensive too quick, even trying to change the title of the thread to "proposal".

You are kidding, right? How many threads have you jumped in and gotten "pissy" because you didn't like the offer made for any number of Oilers? Don't be a hypocrite. If you don't want to trade him, say just that, leave out the other crap.

From the tone of many Habs fans I'm pretty sure they want someone who can fight, Eager isn't that guy. Besides Edmonton should hold onto him, they need the sandpaper.

Also, Canucks fans don't even hate Eager, cause he's a scrub, he won't harm you on the scoreboard. Bolland and Marchand are hated in Canuck Nation because they back up their antics with goal scoring. Im glad Eager has smartened up in Edmonton cause he was ridiculously dumb in the PO series with the Sharks.

Not sure why they wouldn't. Parros is a horrible hockey player. Skates about as well as I do, ha ha.

idk, i don't want or have any interest in Eager but i'd
definitely go after a guy like Raffi Torres or the prosect
of the Avs ''Mitchell Heard'' which is young, and can play
some good hockey. He loves to fight and play physical.
thats what Montreal needs. not necessarily a huge Goon
but guys that play gritty and that like to drop gloves.
The problem is we don't have enough in the team.
Prust is the only one and if Moen, Armstrong and White
would play the same way, we wouldn't even be
having this discussion but they don't...

No one wants Eager...Ben Eager doesn't even want to be Ben Eager...why not take Gomez back while they're at it?

I'd take Eager before Gomez. Wait... the Habs had Gomez.

I don't think Edmonton will be looking to move eager unless they get a gritty hard working defenceman in return
