Edmonton gets a solid #2c and a #2d who are both young and highly skilled, and buffalo gets a game breaking winger in Eberle to go along with some of their high potential centers and a very good physical shutdown top 4 d man.

Edmonton passes, stop with these Eberle proposals, hell will freeze over before Edmonton trades him.

It's a decent proposal I think, both team's would probably be happy with their players though.

To put it bluntly Myers sucks and is getting worse. No thanks.

It's funny. For how much Myers supposedly "sucks," there sure seem to be a lot of people who would love to have him on their team.
Awkward because Buffalo's not going to trade him.

He does suck. And has for the better part of 2 years. But teams are willing to take a substantial chance on him because he is big and looked very good as a rookie a couple of years ago. Maybe he will regain that form or maybe not. As an Oiler fan I would take a chance on him as well. Even with the present suckage I just wouldnt want to give up what Buff fans think he is worth.

Cept' for the fact that he hasn't sucked for 2 years.

He sucked for like the first 20 games last year....and all of the games this year outside of a handful.

He's not being sold low...

Yes, let's take two people who're perfectly happy being Oilers... and move them away.

Smid is easily our best d-man. He's turned into an even better d-man that we could've hoped for.

Eberle and Hopkins were born to play together and Hodgson wouldn't be our #2C, he'd be our #3C behind Gagner.

No thanks.

understandable. Better to hang onto him at this point and see if he can rebound. We are in much the same situation with Hemsky. His injuries the last two years have his value at an all time low. He is playing great now but it would not be the time to trade him until he shows he can stay healthy for a season.

Not horrible. Edmonton gets an excellent 2C and a potential 1/2D. Even though they give up Eberle, they still have Yakupov, and Hodgson makes Gagner expendable, which can garner them some more wingers or defenseman.

The Oilers already have two better centres in RNH and Gagner. Smid has played better than Myers for the past 2.5 seasons. They arent trading for potential anymore

Horrible for the Sabres, though.

Myers needs to pull his head out of his ass ASAP, if for none other reason than for those annoying low-ball proposals to stop.

Hodgson is currently the only high potential centre that plays regular shifts Not sure if Smid is a top 4 either. How about Ennis, Stafford and Leopold for Smid, Horcoff and Hemsky?

What is with the rash of Eberle proposals by Edmonton fans lately (and Edmonton proposals in general)? There must be something wrong with Eberle lately...

Edit : Not implying necessarily that the OP is an Oilers fan, just speaking in general.

Smid is definitely a top 4 D. He's a defensive specialist who's been playing on Edmonton's top line for 2 years. BEfore anyone starts the whole top line on the worst team mantra he was +4 last year and only -10 the year before when we really sucked with only 62 pts as a team. He makes his D partener better by virtue of sound play and good positioning.

That said he's not available as he's been one of the players who fights night in and night out, loves the city (we need more not less of guys with that attitude), and is a great PKer. Think a younger Robyn Regehr with less of a mean streak but better positional play. With the state of our D we can't afford to lose Smid unless we're going for Jones.

No chance from the EDM perspective. I want no part of that Myers contract with how he is playing.

Horrible for Edmonton. Wouldn't even do it if Myers was actually playing to his ability.

Buffalo steals this deal.
I don't think Edmonton has any use in Hodson as gagner is really doing well under Kruger. And in my opinion is better than Hodson and has more potential.
If Buffalo wants a shake up maybe something liek the below.

Yakupov, Klefbom for Myers+

I think for a top blueliner the oilers would be more willing to trade Yakupov than Eberle. And my guess is Buffalo would need some sort of D coming back. I thinkthe + would have to be large. Just not sure what would fit Edmonton that Buffalo would give up.
