I hope you guys turn it around here. It would only make dealing players like Coburn and Hartnell to you easier. I don't think Couts/Schenn/Simmonds are available though.

What do you think Troy Brouwer and Karl Alzer would cost the Oilers? I was also thinking of Martin Erat because he sort of has negative value, atleast he did barely getting minutes at the start of the year. Looking at our roster we don't have much to move aside the big guns...other than that we have a bunch of pending free agents.

Kaleta on waivers. Sure he has a reputation, but I'd snag him.

That said I think he clears.

I doubt Erat gets moved as the caps gave up a good prospect for him. As for the other 2, if the return help the caps plug a couple holes in their line-up, probably won't be too expensive

I would really like B. Schenn on the Oilers, IMO, he's exactly who we need behind RNH as our #2 C.

I think Erat could be had for a song. He's overpaid and was playing on the 4th line.

Anyone interested:

Name 4 players that you want the Oilers to go after whether through free agency or trade. One top 6 forward, one bottom 6 forward, a defenseman, and a goalie.

Mine are: Simmonds, Cleary, Ehrhoff and Halak

We wouldn't trade for Halak, he's a UFA, we'd just sign him.

I think Marc Staal is too, but people are expecting him to join his bros in Carolina.
*Found that he's not a UFA until summer 2015, but he probably wouldn't sign here, so we'd be getting him for basically one year.

As would I. I doubt we're interested though.

Crosby, Lucic(4th liner for team canada), Weber, Price


In actuality Simmonds, Ott, Markov, Halak, Simmonds is the only one we'd have to trade for.

I like your thinking. I had no idea Markov is an impending UFA, why has he not been talked about more??

I don't know a ton about the guy, other than that he's an irritating SOB, but if people more informed on him think he could help us, then I'd be all for it.

We don't need Jesse Bouleriece 2.0. Kaleta is a disgrace to the game!

from reading the thread on the main board....

it seems like he'll get suspended for sneezing at this point. In that sense he's a waste....and he may antagonize the other team into some sort of blood frenzy...

the good news is he would be an upgrade in our bottom six and provides some injury depth there too. He can apparently PK which would be a boon. If he can at least pretend to turn his game around ala Matt Cooke...then its a win. If not, then at least the crazy SOB isn't playing AGAINST us.

It would be Kaleta in Eager's spot and seeing as how people have lauded Eager for not playing the way he should, it wouldn't surprise me to see them claim Kaleta.

The NHL is a better league without Kaleta in it, I don't want the Oilers taking part in keeping a player like that around.

are you kidding. Kaleta is the biggest joke in the league, an absolute rat of a player. Have zero idea why you'd want this piece of **** on the team.

Because our team doesn't really have a rat player? Soft as butter, no retaliation. Lifeless.

At least Kaleta could provide some energy or a spark.

I am not too big of a fan of trading our youth. I like Couts/schenn/Simmonds/Voracek. I think Hartnell would be a great fit in your top 6 though. You guys desperately wanted Clarkson, Hartnell is a better player than him. If you guys starting hitting the W column, it would make it easier for your GM to pull the trigger on a big trade. So let's pick it up Edmonton damn it, Flyers season is pretty much over lol.

I don't see why Philly trades any of the pieces they got from the Carter/Richards trades.

They had to give up players of that caliber to get those players...
