Are the people that said neither confused?

He could very easily have 4-5 more points..lots of very close calls..if the season played out again in an alternate universe Eberle could have 32 points..or he could have 17..

If I had to pick..right now I keep Yakupov..next year, we may be over our honeymoon with the Yak..either way, neither one goes..Hemsky can get moved though, doesn't get you anything close to the same return.

No,I'd still want to trade him.





Eberle doesn't provide the 'ShamWow'() that Yakupov does,and we need to upgrade our defense.

I would not want to trade Eberle so that Hemsky could be in our top 6 it would be so that we can get that top pairing dman that would improve our team. I just don't see how we can fit Hall, RNH, Eberle, yak and Gagner under the cap and still have room to pay a top pairing dman.

This has been hashed and rehashed and hashed again.

The answer for how we can fit Hall, RNH, Eberle, and Yak under a cap is: easily.

Notice how I left Gagner out of that group. It's because he doesn't belong in it.

You don't trade either Eberle or Yak. Depending on Sam's salary demands, you move him in the future.

I would like to know where this 2C to replace Gagner is coming from. Gagner is having a good year but it is only on year, my biggest worry is over paying Gagner to a term over 3 yrs and then him not being worth his cap hit.

no... It's people saying that there's no point in trying to pick one because we shouldn't move either. Who should Vancouver trade Daniel Sedin or Henrik Sedin?

Gagner put up a respectable amount of points over a stretch of games. Note however, that he is currently in the process of regressing back to his typical pace. A trend that started just as the games became important.

He still can't win face offs. He still can't play defense. He's a decent top 6 winger. The fact that the Oilers list him in the program as a center does not make it so.

Somehow, I'm not that worried about replacing him at 2C. In a 200 ft game I doubt even Lander would do much worse.

This quote doesn't make sense, how many more fwds did VAN have that might be having a 6mil cap hit. Not one plus they don't have another player with the skill of either of those two.

If they did then i would do that trade but it's not realistic for a team to trade a young #1 defenseman for a young #1 RW.
The idea is to build around Eberle and Yak and not trade one of them to fill a hole by creating another hole.

Ideally neither, but if one of the two had to be on the table for a young top pairing dman, Eberle AINEC. Yakupov, like Hall and RNH, has the potential to carry the team. Eberle is a complimentary player albeit a very good one.

Wow.

Yak is going to be amazing. I have to qualms trading Eberle to be totally honest. He has high value and could net a massive return at a position of higher need.

I would trade Eberle. Why? Because Yakupov has so much enthusiasm, high work ethic, and you can see his passion whenever he is on the ice. I can't say that I see any of those things in Eberle

I am guessing that Eberle's injury is really effecting the way that he is playing this year. They both have skill but Yak is more physical and is harder to knock off the puck.

At there best both will be very good players, but I can see already that Yak is going to bring an added dimension to his game that very few elite offensive players will have. Eberle will be good in his own way... and I would only ever trade him if we were getting a truly elite Dman back.

Eberle is a wizard and a draft steal, but he will never have as much fire as Yak/Hall.

Neither. Eberle is too valuable to the team and Yakupov, well it's only his rookie year and he's doing just fine. If anything, out of the kids, it's Hopkins that I'd trade.

So which centreman do you plan on acquiring when you trade nuge away?

If I had to I'd rather deal Eberle. Yakupov is crazy intense, works hard, and is better than Eberle was at the same age. I'm also not crazy about Eberle's contract, I think he'll live up to it but if he ends up being an inconsistent player then that contract will haunt us.

Preferably we keep both, because I think they're both fantastic young players. But if I had to, Eberle would go before Yak.

All the koolaid drinkers on here who think the current roster(top six) will bring Oilers closer to a contender are just fooling themselves. I love the skill set each of the young guys brings. But as a whole, they will NEVER be able to compete against the bigger/average teams. Physicality will beat out talent 10-1 every time. Tambo has proven that he is nothing but an average GM, when it comes to building a winner. I will continue to support this team, but would happily give up Ebs for a #1/2 Dman or big centre moving forward.

Ederle to the Blues for Stewart. Or
Eberle+ to Yotes for Yandle

You all know this would work! ��
