Isles and Oilers talking deal.

Its Eklund but he has been good latley.

"if this one goes down it will be a major domino of sorts and shift the balance. If it is going to happen most feel it will happen by gametime tomorrow "


Makes sense with a few odd things going down recently..

Vis coming in and Bailey rejoining the roster.(they will need to waive or trade somone to free up those spots)

Isles getting Tim Thomas cap hit.(Mayby so they can make a trade without going under cap)

Okposo sitting out of practice. said it was an illness but he was fine in the game the night before and is playing today.

Reasoner is a healthy scratch for the 1st time since becoming an Islander.

Even if its not with the Oilers I could see the Isles making a move.

It might not be a big move, it could be as simple as Reasoner for a pick or it could be bigger around Striet and/or Okposo.

Whitney, Gagner, and Smid are all enticing pieces that are up for new contracts in the summer.

A major domino of sorts and shift the balance?

Isles fans are speculating about Eberle to LI.

Don't let us down Eklund

Obviously won't be one of the major pieces of either teams, but there's a number of pretty good players that could be moved to shake up (and possibly improve) both teams.

The Oilers will not trade Eberle....

The only way they would do that is if they were getting Tavares and we all know thats not going down in this lifetime..

Watch it be Theo Peckham for a conditional 6th.

No thanks. Whitney's chronic ankle/foot injury and his awful play, have me wondering if he's downplaying an injury because it's a contract yr.

What’s happened to Ryan Whitney?
February 3, 2013. 6:54 am • Section: Oil Spills
Whitney should be a go-to guy on the Oilers’ blueline but looks like Tom Poti out there right now and you know how it was for the quiet, lanky, puck-moving but not overly physical Poti, when he was an Oiler.

Hamonic is the isles Number one defensman....

The 3 least likley Isles to be traded are Tavares,Hamonic, and AMAC

How many contracts do the Islanders currently have on the books? That may be be an issue here.

A big deal between the Oil and Isles seems pretty much impossible

Or Tavares, Hamonic, and Moulson or AMac.

I doubt that Eklund is going to correctly call a trade between the Islanders and the Oil; if it does go down I am expecting something underwhelming like Marty Reasoner for a late round pick.

*sigh* I know.

I expect the big move will end up being Reasoner for a late pick. It'll help the Oilers on faceoffs and open up a spot on the roster for the NYI.

The Oilers should trade one of their first round picks for Hamonic.

Please explain why Whitney is enticing? He is playing LOUSY hockey and hasn't been good for a while.

Edmonton isn't dying to trade Hall either, but you have to give to get if you want a winger for Tavares for the future.

I'll crow if it goes down. I called that blockbuster several days ago.

Reasoner for a late pick isn't exactly a major domino of sorts and shifts the balance.

This is Eklund. I don't expect a real blockbuster.
