Fire Lowe and Tambo. Fire MacT and Krueger while you're at it and hire Burke and Ruff. This team will then start making some noise.

In short?

Use the next first overall on a defenseman, and number 31 on a goaltender.

Trying to build the 1987 Oilers isn't going to work.

Engage in serious trade talks with LA for Bernier.
Put together a package for Weber.

Centre position will be filled for the next 15yrs

Will definitely shakeup the team's core for the new GM and he can say it's his team not somone's team.


Hall Barkov Eberle/Yakupov (Size: check)
MP MacKinnon ??? (Size: check)

Weber Jones (Massive nasty first pairing dmen that can move the damm puck and punish)
Klefbom J. Schultz (Again 2 big bodies and both can move the damm puck that can punish)
Musil Bigos (3rd pairing is another big mean nasty pairing)

Bernier


Trade Hemsky and Gagner's for some bottom 6 players can hit and fight. Maybe talk to Pittsburg regarding Morrow, Despres, Bennett, Harrington, and etc... I prefer Bennett for the 2RW.

Holy you have no clue!!! I thought the first part of the post was ridiculous till I kept reading. This would be the worst team they have ever iced and thats saying something.

1st 2014

For

Weber

Pickup another veteran defenceman on the outs with a team, but has shown to be good player in past and not to old, for cheap e.g. Keith Ballard

2nd

For

Ballard

Try to sign physical UFA with top 6 upside. Maybe overpay a bit but might be worth it to add the versatility to lineup.

Ryan Clowe
Or
Nathan Horton

Forwards

Hall - Hopkins - Eberle
Clowe - Gagner - Hemsky
Hartikainen - Horcoff/Lander - Jones
Eager - Belanger - Brown

Defence

Ballard - Weber
Shultz - Shultz
Smid - Petry

Ballard is not being utilized well in Vancouver but is a puck mover and with a rock like Weber maybe you can bring out what he played like in Phoenix and Florida.

Play Horcoff or buy him out and replace with Lander.

Oh and to add icing to the cake you got your top 10 draft prospect from 2013 to groom for future. Who knows maybe even top 5 and ready to contribute right away. Paajarvi could be traded for a very solid 3rd line solid shutdown guy to bolster the overall defensive play of team, Tambellini can figure that one out I can't do all his god dam work!

Pretty sure Oilers make playoffs with that lineup. If not then Oilers are really screwed!
That's not an offer we can't refuse. Do you think Poile would want Yakupov after the Radulov debacle? No. Want Weber? Start with Hall or Eberle.

Tambellini should be fired if the Oilers finish bottom 5...heck he should have been fired last year.

Are the Oiler fans going to have another draft "party" after the team shows no improvement for 4 straight years?

I think the Oilers deserve a better GM, a better coach and a better management overall.

Someone who can bring accountability to the Oilers on all fronts.

There might be a couple of top tier defencemen available this summer that would really suit the Oilers needs. Obviously they wouldn't come cheap and would absolutely cost one of the big four up front but it's time for the Oilers to consider such a move.

OEL/Yandle: OEL is an RFA this summer and is going at a Norris pace right now. He could demand Karlsson money or garner an offer sheet north of 7M/year. A team run by the league with an internal budget might not be able to afford both if they can get a nice return; especially a team with some glaring needs up front in terms of scoring.

Letang: I know he's a big piece of the puzzle in Pittsburgh but it seems like he's struggled a bit this year and he's unrestricted after next summer. This would obviously be dependent on the Oilers signing him to an extension as well. Malkin's contract is also up that summer and while it might be a longshot I don't think it'd be wildly out of the realm of possibility. A player like Yakupov would be unreal next to Crosby.

Weber: I think he's a wild longshot but you never know. If Nashville continues to struggle and like Phoenix, Nashville has very little in terms of offensively talented forwards. I'm thinking the return would have to be enormous for this to happen though.

Hop into a time machine back into 1979 and draft someone other than Kevin Lowe with the #21 pick

It would be a very longshot. Shero has made it clear that his priority is signing Malkin & Letang before they get to free agency. They are part of the core here. They have enough talent in the pipeline to round out the D with young guys over the next few years when some of the bigger contracts expire so cap issues are unlikely. Depending on who pans out or gets traded Despres/Morrow/Pouliot/Harrington/etc. might make Letang redundant in a few years but it won't be next season.

Even if Shero did decide to move Letang I don't think he would do Letang for Yakupov. I think it would be more Eberle or Hall.

I think the oilers need to trade Yakupov. I said it all last season that they should have traded the pick to get some D help and some depth at forward.

They need to build that third line around MPS and find him two wingers with some chemistry. I don't know who you have in the cupboards, acquiring two guys who can chip in offensively is a must.

I'd like to see the oilers get a guy like Carl Gunnarson or Big Ron Hainsey to play with Klefbom on the second pairing.

If you want Weber we better be talking a devastating trade. If we are trading Weber you should ask yourself, will we regret this deal? And if the answer is yes then we probably have a deal. A defenseman who can play 20-25 min. without looking like dog crap is essential, no d-man, no weber.

Would you regret a Weber for two of yak/hall/Eberle/rnh + one of Justin Schultz/Smid/Petry + probably some picks

OR

One of the big four +two of your d-men+ picks/roster players?

Weber is signed longterm now. When it was looking like Weber may want to leave when he was an RFA last summer, his trade cost would have been lower IMO. Something like one of the big 4 + Klefbom + pick.

Right now though? I don't think the above is unrealistic. We're talking about a guy who is a ~top 3 dman in the world, and by many considered to be the best dman in the world. He does it all. He's great defensively, he's physical, he has a good shot, he can play in all situations and play very effectively in all situations.

IMO, for Edm to get somebody like Weber, we're talking RNH + Hall + Schultz, as absurd as that sounds. Weber in terms of value to a team is just a notch below a guy like Crosby, and there are people out there who would argue he has equal value (aka those that value building around a Dman over a Centre).

I would like this too . I have never been a Burke fan , but he never had the picks we had in TO and he done a great job . I think he could finish up our rebuild in a hurry . Ruff was always good , also another good one would be Ted Nolan . I can not understand why He is not coaching in the NHL

This past draft they used their 32nd overall pick on an over ager goon. Obviously someone doesn't have a clue on what they're doing. It's a risk and it's not working out yet.

Hire Brian Burke.

OR

Trade everyone (and I mean everyone) for as many high 1st round picks as you can garner, sign journeymen to fill important positions, wait 15 years or until the next super-deep draft, rinse and repeat.

Sign a big forward UFA who can play top 6 minutes.
Trade for a top 3 pmd.
Draft Barkov/Monahan/Lazar with your 1st pick, and Comrie/Jarry/Martin with your 2nd pick.

If Tambo can do this then he can stay.
