Unfortunately it's also turned into a Myers Vs. RNH pissing match. http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1243383
I'm going to keep this one away from Sabres fans, would something around Paajarvi + O'mark for Adam + Regehr be a deal either team is interested in? Not sure Sabres would want to lose that much toughness.

Not sure that they'd have a need for Omark TBH.

I would love to deal Omark for a D man, but we need to realize he really has next to no value.

Regher is a Willie Mitchell waiting to happen. A former top pairing guy who needs to change his game a bit to become a rock-steady no.4 guy for the next 3-4 years.

I'd move something like Potter and 3rd rounder. No way you trade Magnus.

I agree on the no-Magnus policy, but why on Earth would Buffalo ever make that trade?

Well I felt Paajarvi was the best asset in that deal, but not worth more than both, so I was trying to add something. Maybe Ana's 2nd instead?

If the Sabres are moving a "significant" defenseman, it's probably going to be Leopold since he's close to redundancy with a couple of the kids they have pushing up from the farm. And they've stated they want to be a harder team to play against so dealing Regehr seems odd in light of their public commentary about direction. He's the hardest guy they have on the back end. Just tossing my 2 cents in...

I'd absolutely love it if we could get Regehr for a reasonable price.

I think Leopold actually makes more sense for the Oilers than Regehr anyway! Leopold is more mobile and he has a better first pass out of the zone which is what the Oilers were missing last season.

If he becomes available from Buffalo, I really hope Edmonton makes a call.

Petry-Smid
Whitney-Leopold
Schultz-Schultz

That's not too bad if Whitney stays healthy.

Petry-Smid... offense and solid defense
Schultz-Schultz... offense and solid defense
Sutton-Regehr... pain and suffering

Spares of Whitney, Peckham for another balance of offense and pain.

I like the looks of that defensive lineup. I don't think Regehr would be very expensive to acquire either. Make it so Tambo.

I would deal Omark for a pre-order for the WiiU

300-400 Dollars is quite a lot for much of us on here

Some people are saying MPS is the "third line young player who many feel has top six potential."

We should trade for Regehr so the entire team can get revenge on that bag that women use when cleaning their VJJ.

First in line, Hemsky.

Second in line, me.

As they say... keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Regehr on the Oilers would be a nice karma reversal against Calgary and the rest of the NW division that he was traded away from to Buffalo.

on the Sabre's off season thread, one of the first priorities was a 3rd line centre. I wonder if Leopold for Belanger makes sense for both clubs?

looking at the face off stats, Roy was, by far, their best option. Now that he is gone, they don't have anyone better than 47% on the dot and that player is a right winger (Pominville). They have a real hole in their roster make-up, even worse than us prior to signing Belanger. At least we had one option in Horcoff.

Petry-Smid
Whitney-Leopold

Actually Regehr makes a lot more sense.
The Oilers desperately need a veteran strong, physical defenseman who can potentially play top 4 minutes. They don't have one guy besides Sutton or Peckham that can bring a physical presence and those two are barely bottom pairing guys so Regehr would fill the physical void nicely. Leopold would be a fine addition also but that D is still way too easy to play against.

Petry-Smid
Whitney-N. Schultz
Regehr-J. Schultz

That looks like a nicely balanced D (3 puckmovers, 2 shutdown guys and a physical force) with some potential to be pretty good depending on Whitney's health and the development of Schultz and Petry.
I don't think that Buffalo trades Regehr anyway only because just like us, they really lack in the toughness department.

Yeah, Belanger is probably a fit while they try to transition to all of their kids they have in the middle. Roy got a lot of grief but he was the only center at the end of the year who could win a draw and play some reasonable minutes in his own zone.

The question is why the hell would we do that? It was an area of weakness before Belanger came along and while he didn't have the best season last year, if you deal him you have to go out and find a replacement.

Yeah, i don't get it either. I bet that some want to dump Belanger because they think that VandeVelde or Lander can step in and the Oilers won't skip a beat. That kind of mentality has bit them in the rear in the past. Belanger is a specialist and even in an off year was still pretty good at it, trading him now would be a mistake.

I agree with you in that my preference is to keep Belanger but he is going to be our 4th line centre this year. That is one of the least important positions in the club. If we can deal a 4th line centre to address a deficiency as important as a 3-6 dman, then we should do that every time.

If you read the THN prediction thread, they talk about our defence being sketchy but they never mention our incredible 4th line centre strength as something that will help us.

I don't think Belanger is a typical 4th line centre. He's a key piece for the PK and will have a big role to play in ensuring the kids get a push in the offensive zone. The Oilers spent years without a player like that and it killed them; it's even more important now. And yes, I'd say it is more important than getting yet another bottom three D.

As useful and underrated as I think Belanger is, I'd move him for a Reghyr/Leopold in a second.
