OIL/JETS How would you feel if this trade went down?

I did a proposal on the Jet's board and they seemed pretty close to 50/50, so I figured I may as well see what my fellow Oil fans think of this trade.

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1448189 <<<--- That's the proposal on the Jet's board. They've been pretty nice and civil, so please don't go there if you're in the mood for trolling or flaming.

To Jets:

Hemsky
Ducks' 2nd rounder
Conditional 2014 3rd rounder if Hemsky isn't healthy enough to play 70 games.

To Oilers:

Burmistrov

I figure Hemsky and Kane would be a pretty good tag team for you guys.

I figure Burmistrov would look good on our third line. He plays right wing and center. If one of our top six guys get hurt he'd be a good guy to have eat those minutes up in a pinch. He was drafted a year after Magnus, so he's around the right age to grow up around the rest of the team. He's a pretty good overall player except his offense hasn't worked out yet. A lot of Jets fans say that this is because of the system the Jets play and because of how he's been utilized in Winnipeg. Still makes valuable contributions.

With this move we're clearing out salary while picking up a young player who'll easily fill in nicely on an obvious hole in our roster. We still have our own second rounder, so I don't see giving up the Ducks' 2nd rounder as a huge deal.

Thoughts?

I like it. Burmistrov isn't really the forward we need as he is still young and doesn't play particularily big but he was a recent top 10 pick if i remember correctly. The guy is a rink rat similar to Yakupov and it might give yak a russian buddy to sit in the rink with haha.

Burmistrov isn't what we need, but the value of that deal is too good to pass up.

He isn't big, but he manages to play the body often without getting injured.

I like the deal. Burmistrov is still young and my not be big but can at least play the body. He has good puck skills too. May be a bit of an overpayment IMO but the jets take the risk in hoping hemsky is healthy

I simply don't know enough about him to make a reasonable opinion. I like the fact that he is still young and yet has good pro experience.

Due to how effective a player Burmistrov is already, I think the Jets are taking slightly more risk than we are. I'm certain that we're getting a guy who'll fit in perfectly on the third line right now and there's good reason to believe that he'll turn into a decent top 6 option.

On the third line he'd be better than Horcoff and on the right wing he'd be better than anyone else we've got.

I find it most attractive because we're filling a gap with a guy who could be with us for a long time instead of someone who's either coming in getting overpaid as a free agent or someone who's got a year or two before becoming a free agent.

2nd most hits amongst forwards on WPG, plays PK and PP, has increased from 41 to 44 to 47% on the draws. 21 years old, top 10 pick from 2010.

Not sure how he isn't a guy we could put to use.

This doesn't need to be it's own thread and I won't merge it in because the poll can't be removed. Closing.

OP feel free to re-post this in the proper thread.
