Oilers looking for D help?

Lowe has been taking a long hard look at Derian Hatcher and would be willing to part with Lupul. So I ask would you give up Mara for Lupul? I personally think it is a no brainer. Mara's 3mil comes off this year, which allows you to go after a big #2 d-man next year to go with Chara, Ference, and Alberts, and you add a top six forward with great upside.

I wasn't ovelry impressed with Lupul the other night against the B's. Just kind of floated around the ice, not doing a hell of a lot. Not to say i would be completely against the idea but at least Mara brings a little heart to the team, you know?

could someone PLEASE post a link noting that EDM is shopping Lupl? All this Edmonton talk is nuts if you ask me.

As for Mara - he stays as Alberts is nowhere near a #2 yet and we need the depth on the top 4-5...

If Mara did leave, that would open the door for the B's to go out and get a D-man like Phillips from OTT...Chara's old D partner from OTT.

I like Mara, but feel his talents may be wasted a bit with Chara getting the majority of the PP time for the D, and with Bergeron playing the other point.

The B's might be better served to grab a guy like Phillips (and poss another vet) and let Lashoff develop in the D spot on the #2 PP, as the other offensive minded D-man???

If Edmonton is willing to move Lupul for a dman, Stuart would be an Oiler and Joffrey in black and gold.

Hatcher for Lupul is utter nonsense.

If Mara moves it has to be for Torres. Lupul is not going to get them Mara and we also have at the moment enough forwards waiting to bust out already.

I would if I knew the Bruins had a better than 50% chance of signing Phillips in the offseason. The trade would leave them without a good power play QB for the second unit though.

there is no way to know that we would be able to sing him in the offseason.

i would like to see mara traded just to unload his salary. we would not miss him that much for the rest of the year and and gives the younger guys a chance to get some time.

I say no to this deal Boston isnt great on D now and if they move Mara that weakens them even more plus they arent guarented to get another D man this summer they can try sure but not gaurented anything.Plus im sick of getting these forwards with "great upside" sure they might do great but they could turn out to be duds. Lets worry about getting Boyes back into form first before getting anymore of these guys.
