The arrogance of some is quite telling.

My wife's comment, when I showed her the last few pages of last proposal thread.

She felt better when I told her most of you lived in your mom's basement.

Agreed. The last thing I want to see is a bunch of people who think they know hockey make far fetched proposals without any basis in reality. It would be much easier seeing what the legitimate rumours are and then contemplating that. Note: "[Player X] may be available" is not a rumor. It's an invitation for fans to make proposals.

I'd like to thank the many posters who allowed this experiment to fail.

Special thanks to BBO who actually put up with the ******** for as long as he did.

I'm an outsider but I keep tabs on the Oilers. This is the way I'm thinking. The Oilers were hilariously stupid for not going after Bishop/Bernier/Schenider...They almost have to go after a #1G this off season and we know that some will be available (i.e. Reimer).

If I was the GM, the way I would approach this team is by asking myself this question about each player "Is this a player I can see us winning a cup with? If so, in what position?". Using that logic is why, if I were an Oilers fan, I would be happy with a trade like Clifford for Gagner + 2nd. I can't see this Oilers, undersized & soft roster, being a contender with Gagner behind RNH. I can see Clifford being on that 3rd line though. The same applies for Hemsky, I would move him for something.

This is what I came up with...

Hall - RNH - Yakupov/Eberle
Perron - X - X
Moroz - X - Clifford
Hendricks - Gordon - Gazdic

X - X
Nurse - Petry
Ference - J. Schultz

So the reason I've bolded Yakupov & Eberle is because, in my estimation, at least one of them has to go. Yakupov would be the illogical choice given his value is an all-time low so let's say you move Eberle for Anisimov & JMFJ, then you fill that hole at #2C with size and top pairing D (I am not a JMFJ fan myself whatsoever, but I do see the potential in him).

Another move I would make is I would throw a whole lot of money at Girardi. Yeah you'll overpay him but you need to create this blue-collared, hard-working winning culture back in Edmonton. That also rounds out your D core nicely. I would do the same for Dave Bolland.

You could just puruse the Trade Rumors and Free Agent Talk
Or use one of those sites that track NHL trade rumors like SB Nation, The Fourth Period, or Bleacher Report.
I'm sure there's plenty of others too.

Except they did. All three of those goalies the Oilers pursued. On a side not, Moroz is not making this team next year and there is no reason to find an upgrade on Gordon. He's been great in the 3 role.

They went after every one of those players.

Exactly.
We tried to go after them but they asked us to much or didn't want to trade within the conference.

Moroz should stay in the ahl for at least a year to see if he can play with men first.

Lots of info from 30 Thoughts this week:

Quote:
5. One of the reasons Los Angeles is interested in Sam Gagner is the team's third-worst power play. Gagner was 28th overall in extra-man points last season, with 15. Among Kings, only Anze Kopitar had more, with 16. Even as Gagner suffered through recovery from his broken jaw in 2013-14, only four L.A. forwards have more power-play points than he does. Plus, the Kings' centre quartet could be Kopitar, Mike Richards, Gagner and Jarret Stoll. Not bad.

6. The biggest hurdle to this trade is the Kings' cap situation. Gagner carries a hit of $4.8 million US and L.A. is looking to contend, not subtract. I'm not sure how much (if at all) Edmonton is willing to eat of this contract. Some of you asked if a team can only absorb salary in the season the trade is made. The answer is no. The Oilers could theoretically do it for the three years of Gagner's deal, if they wanted.

7. The proposed return? Not certain. Edmonton fans drool over Jake Muzzin, but I'd be stunned. L.A. only has five current defencemen locked up for next season and Matt Greene's injuries have complicated negotiations. Their best prospects aren't on the blue-line. This is another position the Kings are looking to address.

Because the last thing nucks wanted was to see schneider in the same division it was reported they wanted our first overall and Eberle. For Bishop is Yakupov and something else and the Kings are not dumb--for Bernier we would have had to give up more then the leads because we are in the same division now. Should be interesting to see how the Gagner drama turns out

Management has a legit excuse for failing to get Schneider and Bernier, but no excuse for failing to get Bishop.

Why would the Kings and Canucks be so careful not to trade within their division, and yet the Senators traded Bishop inside their division? The reality is that we didn't offer anything for Bishop. Management likes to pretend they did though.

It just doesn't make any sense otherwise. Connacher was nothing special even at the time. We had a ton of players with similar value. Paajarvi, Gagner, whoever.

meh... talk about hindsight being 20\20.. Bishop was at the same level as Scrivens, Holtby, Khudobin. Imagine the backlash had we traded Gagner (top 50 in league scoring) for Bishop, a backup goalie for OTT with stats worse than Dubnyk.

TB got lucky and Bishop became a gem. To say "no excuse for failing to get Bishop" is flat out wrong. I wouldnt have given more than a 2nd for him. Not even Paajarvi.

Too bad we couldn't keep the rumor thread going. I liked the idea, and think it would have worked well if we gave it more time, and let people know how to use it properly. Oh well, back to nothing but idiotic NHL14 trade proposals:

Gagner+1st in '14 for Stamkos.

Who knows when we'll see SS, but he'd look good in our top 6. Maybe doesn't bring the physical element we need, but hey, can't have it all. Git er dun MacT.
