The myth is that the "4" are untouchable and that there is no one else with any value. No GM would feel this way, its just the insane, egotistical fans who think they have a sweet clue what is going on. Would a competing team want to gamble on the Nuge right now?
You sir are a genius 100% correct

Then you can have antropov
He has a big body, and floats up the center

JETS are not trading Wheeler. No deal to be made here.
No guarantees about this year's pick, but don't write off Klefbom. He was considered by many to be the best dman in the SEL this year before his injury. He was also a WJC all-star. Going back to 2005, the other dmen with that honour are Pietrangelo, Carlson, Karlsson, Subban, Hedman, Doughty, E. Johnson, Letang, J. Johnson, Phaneuf, and Suter. It's a pretty exclusive list to say the least

We're in the middle of a fight for the lead in the division...if anything we're looking to acquire pieces to compliment our existing core.

You can have Postma and Chicago's third for Hemsky. He might work with Kane...

Any trade discussion regarding the Oilers is useless. Majority of hfboards users are clueless when comes to Oilers. There's no point of making any oilers trade threads considering they all begin in asking for the big 4 and then a eventual berating of Hemsky and Gagner etc.

What does it take?

I was thinking Hemsky ++
You be the judge.
Those two ++'s would have to be very very substantial. To the point where it wouldn't be worth it for the Oilers, Wheeler is one of the main guys for the Jets with Ladd and Kane. He's very much a part of their core.

Sure, because it's not clueless to ask for a teams top RW when they essentially have no other decent RW; Nor is it clueless to expect a team in a playoff spot to take a downgrade at a position of weakness for some minor pluses (assuming some mid-round picks would be added to Hemsky). Only one team is being misunderstood in this thread

The proposal obviously came from an Oiler poster, and was asking for our 1st line RW who is a big part of our core, and is still a RFA after this season. If you want players like this you at least have to offer players other teams want, and on the Oilers that's the so called big 4 and a small handful of others (and no for most teams Hemsky is not one of them).

What else is Edmonton going to give us that would cause our GM to bite? Is this just another "What can we get for Gagner/Hemsky + 2014 2nd? What if we throw in Whitney?" Those threads get old. You want our highest scoring player from last year who has turned it up this year? Prepare to pay. If not, we're happy keeping him.

Point was, one post was questioning why the JETS would have Wheeler as part of their core, saying how many players can you really have as part of the team's core.

Then another poster is saying how the Oiler will have a "BIG 7" which was more than what the previous post was ragging on the JETS for. MADE NO SENSE AT ALL. It was a double standard seeing as the Oilers can have a "BIG 7" yet if the JETS have a core of 6, that's too many to be considered a core.

The only way it makes any sense for the Jets to move Wheeler is if they are doing it to improve upon his position.

Jets RW depth:

Wheeler





Mittens/Welly

Thor

And OP wants us to trade Wheeler? I could be Jets #1 RW if Wheels is dealt.
