The only realistic trade is Wheeler + for Eberle. I wouldn't make that trade though. Our first line has great chemistry and the + it would take is not worth giving up.

No chance the Jets move their 1st for Hemsky, or anything else reasonable for that matter.

Sure if the Jets make the playoffs it's a mid to late pick, but the Jets cannot afford that risk.

Wheeler is Winnipeg's first line RW and has more points that any of Eberle, Nugent-Hopkins or Yakupov (or Hemsky for that matter).

He is a 6'5" 200+ pound winger that can skate. He was drafted 5th overall. He is still only 26.

He plays on the top line in Winnipeg.

It is obvious the ask would be Eberle. Gagner is intriguing but would leave too big a hole on the Jet's RW.

we would have to add alot to get eberle. He had 76 pts in 78 games in his second season in the NHL and he is only 22 and has beaten Wheelers highest peak of production in only his second season at the age of 21.

Whitney Hemsky and a 2nd for Wheeler?
Then Yakupov for Byfuglien?

Although, I would guess that the Oilers have had more than a few calls about their young D-core and guys like Gagner this season.
That's a lot of 'if's', ha ha.

Probably nothing, but I actually already said that, so...

What else is there of value ever offered? It's not like Oilers fans even offer Klefbom, 1st etc. it's always Hemsky, Whitney, Gagner, etc. Nobody wants those players in exchange for core players. This is why HfBoards will never have an agreed upon trade involving the Edmonton Oilers.

Christ you haven't even made your pick this year and the guys being hailed as part of the core moving forward.

While I agree the Jets should keep him because he's turning into a very good PF, let's not get crazy.

If this trade could happen, Edm should jump on it. Instantly changes the culture of the team. Until Edm does something similar to this, they won't be a threat to anyone...but if they do, watch out.

EDM fans you cannot get a top 6 player for Hemsky, you're adding and to be honest no one minus a top contender with cap space would really want him. His injury history hurts his value significantly. Wheeler is better than any other piece the oilers have minus the big 4..

It'd be wheeler+ for one of the big 4

Double Standard much?


JETS are not trading Wheeler. No deal to be made here.

Taylor Hall or Jordan Eberle. Wheeler is Winnipeg's best player. He isn't going anywhere without a huge return.

I don't think he was saying Wheeler was worth one of the big 4 (i.e. not saying the Oilers should do the trade), just that there's nothing else on the Oilers that even warrants consideration for Wheeler. His value to the Jets is way higher than it'd be to most other teams as the next best RW the Jets have is Miettinen. That's right - Miettinen.

In all fairness, Wheeler is the jets' only top 6 RW and there is no way he'd be downgraded in a trade. Frankly, unless there is another scoring RW in Winnipeg's system, he is part of the core. Removing him would remove any threat of scoring off the RW for the Jets.

How are you fixed for bags of pucks in Edmonton? Because that would be the likely response from Winnipeg's GM to your ludicrous expectations of a theoretical return for Hemsky.

Edmonton fans have been offering Hemsky to Winnipeg for two years running now and the response has continually been a resounding no thanks. The Winnipeg team will largely be built via the draft, so not sure why you'd expect Winnipeg management to throw that planning out the window and to just gift you a first round pick in exchange for Ales freaking Hemsky; the team here is young, and is planned to be huge and physical and difficult to compete against as such. Hemsky offers Winnipeg exactly none of that, so again, no thanks.

Oilers say yes. Eberle>Wheeler, but Trouba is a stud. The only other trade I'd maybe say yes to is something around Eberle for Kane. RNH and Hall are worth more than anyone on the Jets IMO and I'm willing to see how much Yakupov can improve while on his ELC.
