You Guys Want Al Montoya?

Hey Oilers people. Just wondering what you think of this. Montoya has played solid for the Jets but is underutilized by them. $600 000 cap hit and I think he could easily be a starter again and an improvement in net for the Oilers. What do you think would be a fair trade for him, if anything at all.

I'd love Rinne, that would be a dream. It's a big concerning to have a hip infection after hip surgery in the offseason, but he'd be worth the risk.

When was he ever a starter? I guess we could swap Labarbra for him, but I don't know that he's much of an improvement. His historically been bad too, so I don't know that there is much of a reason for us to make the deal other than saving a few 100k on the cap.

Keith Jones just hinted something about Moulsen to LAK?

Jim Jackson asked if he knew anything, and Jones didn't deny it. He said 'I dunno,' with a sort of sarcastic / wry tone.


Post from the main board on LAK move.

2 rookies D-man and J. Schultz going into (mathematically) his sophomore season (possible sophomore slump..)?

We should start producing McDavid jerseys

And we finish last in the league because we have 2 rookie defencemen, three when Klefbom or Marincin fill in for injuries.

Maybe the Oilers decided to tank for McDavid. Jesus could you imagine. I might die if I have to deal with 3 more years of near last place finishes.

I'm assuming that's Matt Moulson?

I was disappointed they didn't go after Scrivens in the off-season. Would have been a nice young-ish goalie to challenge Dubnyk.

If the Kings weren't in the same division, I wonder what it would take to get Clifford off them.

1 goal and no assists...

They probably would've been better off trading him in the off-season.

Plus we don't need forwards. We need better defensemen and an upgrade in goal.

Case in point: Bernier and Smith saves against Arcobello which would've put the game away in both cases.
To be fair I'm pretty sure dubnyk could stop an arcobello shot

I honestly don't know... Maybe a 4th and a B prospect? I'm not sure how good he is.

It depends on what St. Louis wants.

I don't see many teams making roster moves this early in the season.

Polak to the Blues is what Smid is to us. I would love to add him as a Nick Schultz replacement but it would take a lot more than a 4th and a B prospect. More like a 2nd and a Marincin type of prospect.

A UFA in 16/17@2.75M-AAV, he's a steady stay at home R defenseman. Big and strong @ 6'1, 225, he can handle some tough custies in front, and clear the crease. Was playing on the 2nd pairing with Jackman in St.L but now on the bottom pair with Leopold. Would be a def. upgrade over N.Schultz, and seems pretty dece to me.

Question is how do we clear out N.Schultz, and aren't St.L at the cap already? Wonder what would they want for him? Him and Shattenkirk are their only 2 good D without NTC/NMC's, and Shattenkirk I doubt is expendable. They're apparently also looking to get rid of Lapierre.

I would think they would go for it if we made a strong offer since they're already stacked on D, but would likely need a roster R D-man back, possibly Schultzy and a pick/prospect if we retain salary, and take Lapierre.

Also apparently Martinez is available from LA.

Polak is a better version of Smid. He's an athlete. Fast and strong. Imagine Smid but fast and much stronger. So essentially, he'd be our best dman and this is no exaggeration. And St. Louis wouldn't move him.
