Looks like a few guys have been invited to camps.

Brad Winchester with Calgary, Dan Ellis with Carolina and Mike Knuble with Detroit.

I wouldn't mind seeing Kent Huskins get an invite to our camp.

Same. Someone like Knuble could have a good year in Edmonton. Although Detroit is the best place for a vet like him to go in my opinion.

It should also be worrisome that two of our top 4, Smid and Whitney, are ufas. Signing Smid now to a long-term deal should be a high priority.
Smid is a UFA this summer? Already? Yeesh I could have sworn he had some rfa years left.

Seems like there is a lot of teams out there looking for D, Huskins will probably get signed without having to try out. Really, he'd be a great fit on our back end.

Yep I bet any decent depth dman with any NHL experience (and some that aren't even that decent) will be gobbled up by teams in the next few days/weeks. I think they are the most in-demand commodity right now.

If a guy like Peckham or even Potter were to hit waivers I highly doubt they'd make it through without getting picked up.

I think a Flames and Oilers trade could be ideal.

Hemsky+Potter for Jaybo

Hudler Cervenka Hemsky

Could make for a decent 2nd line. Jaybo could step in and play 25 mins/night.

Bob MacKenzie reporting Del Zotto signed. Of all things I have heard, the NJD D for Oil fwd seems to make the most sense...

I just don't see the Oilers moving any big forward other than Horcoff...and why would NJ want him? They have Zajac and Henrique.

Hemsky - sure, for Volchenkov, Greene or Larsson. Not sure why NJ would do that before this summer though.

Tallinder? I have liked him since Buff. With Hemsky his injury concerns are warranted so I doubt NJ gives up Greene, and for sure not Larssen. Hemsky plus 2nd might get Volchenkov? He is quite durable.

Even Jersey fans are saying they would have to add to Volchenkov to get Hemsky.

I'm not willing to give up Hemsky for a project. Because the successfuk project of Hemsky is likely far more valuable. IMO giving him up DOES create a hole. We badly need secondary scoring behind the Hall-RNH-Ebs line, or we are guaranteed to lose every game that they get shut down.

Only way I trade Hemsky is if we are adding to him for a position that we have a GREATER need for. Not saying we have any chance of these happening, but if it were Hemsky + for ROR or Bogosian, count me in.

The Hemsky to NJ thread on the trade rumors board suggests otherwise.

D is a greater need, without question. Also, Volchenkov is hardly a project...

But I agree losing Hemsky would give us a bit of an issue. Maybe a Pajaarvi or equivalent plus pick for lesser dman makes the most sense.

I think your missing something, Volchenkov has a NTC and NJ needs his grit. Another fact his injury history is almost as bad a Hemsky and it could get worse as he get's older. His contract could also cripple the Oilers from signing some of their young stars in the future.

Yes Volchenkov type is what the Oilers are looking for, but Volchenkov contract and injury history the Oilers would pass

Anyone else find it hilarious the Flyer signed Kurtis Foster, in a short season it won't take long to "figure" him out. lol

Did not realize he had a ntc. Again, it's not specifically about him, I just think the NJD make the best trade partners atm.

Definitely disagree that his injury history is almost as bad as Hammer. He has never played less than 57 games in a season. He is somewhat more injury prone than I had realized, but not to the extent you make it out to be.

Henrique's hurt and that might explain why they'd look at Hemsky. Or something.

The other thing it does, a Volchenkov + for Hemsky deal, is remove some long term money from the equation because there are a number of soon to be UFAs the Devils have to consider signing; Elias, Zajac, Zubrus and Clarkson

The Oilers don't need another 3/4 D or a soft one, they also don't need to take on a contract. Tallinder could be a walking time bomb with his blood cot history, and he got back spasm's just from tying his shoes. NJ doesn't have anything they would be willing to trade that the Oilers would want.

Look at Vancouver and Philly inviting Barker and Foster, that means D are at a premium and right now the Oilers can ill afford to pay for a D that could end up playing 3rd pair or sitting. The wild card is Peckham, if he returns back to form, the Oilers are fine. If not, Hemsky will have had time to preform and his value should have increased.

Volchenkov misses around 15-20 games each year due to injury, because of the style of game he plays and I love his style. As he gets older those injuries could increase, are you willing to take a chance on that.

Take a chance? It's less of a chance than Hemsky.

One last time, it's not just about Volchenkov, I just figure the two teams have different needs and make decent trading partners.

sounds like Gomez has been kicked to the curb in Montreal

I think montreal needs to turn back the clock and rethink how they do things

Habs were once a class act in dealing with players

You would think the Oilers would trade for a player, that would help the team and be around for awhile. The Oilers need a physical 3rd pairing D, with a short contract. A big rugged 2nd line C and maybe a backup goalie. Who on the Devils team would fit, and they would be willing to trade.

Remember it's the Devils that are desperate for scoring help, their the one's expected to make the playoffs, a team in financial trouble, and if anything they should be over paying.

He's getting paid $5.5 million to take a year off. Not exactly a hardship.
