Probably D and a winger. Can't see us giving up any young D on our roster at the moment, but maybe at the draft, if we are in a position to take someone like Nurse, perhaps we can package the pick with Hemsky and get Couturier+. I think that is pretty close to good value. Or maybe if we finish lower in the standings, a Gagner + 1st rd for Couturier + 1st rd. We get younger and less experienced, but we get the size and two-way play that we badly need in the top 6. Its a gamble - maybe SC never becomes as good as I think he will, but you have to take a chance otherwise this team isnt going anywhere.

Besides the fact that the value is brutal for those teams, they are contenders (Philly is still a contender IMO) so why would they trade vital players off their roster for inferior players? Makes no sense from Anaheim and Philly's POV.

I don't see the Oilers doing much this season, i think that Tambellini is content with rolling with this roster for the rest of the season and letting the chips falls where they may. I don't even think that he truly believes that this is a playoff team so this is yet another season of development and being content with minor improvements.
I would expect him to really put in some work this offseason to upgrade the roster or he'll just re-sign Gagner to a big contract and stick with this roster for the next several seasons and hope that whoever they draft this season (likely a center) can take over for Gagner eventually.

For some reason and it's a longshot but i have a feeling that Tambellini will look to dangle Yakupov as bait either this offseason or next to bring in a top pairing defenseman. I just get the vibe that the organization isn't overly gung ho about Yakupov as a long term fixture here.

We don't know the situation in Duck land and if he wants to test UFA or try another team. Worth kicking the tires. This is nothing short of a suggestion. Seeing how Gags stock is high and producing beyond a point per game. Maybe he's hyped enough to garner a coutourier with + + added to make it work. This is the NHL and we've all seen major trades where everybody scratches their heads. Most major trades are never fair or even. Look at Joe Thor.. Is it possible, absolutely. Is it impossible.. only if you don't try..

Here's some of my thoughts that could help get us a bit bigger and grittier:

Whitney + for Abdelkater

and/or

Gagner for Legwand

No thanks to Legwand. Dealing a playing coming into his prime for one that may only have a few years left will bite this team in the butt.

Have to agree with Spec. Move Whitney and sign someone else to be your 7 or 8. All signs point to Whitney being a guy teams want. Get your pick and as Iwanyk(?) suggested sign a Brett Clark.

Depending on what Peckham does, we may not even need to sign someone

No...

Hemsky, although overpaid is producing and with Gagner has been our most consistent forward this season so far.

We have a offensive dman in Schultz. We need a guy who is a + player and thinks defense first.

As much as our offense didn't win us too many games, our defense definitely has lost games.

Hemsky is cheaper, and producing. Bouwmeester is almost at 7 mil and is a minus player, not to mention there is still another year left on that horrible contract.

Hemsky = bad contract
Bowmeester = horrible contract

It'd be a lot more fair if CLB adds a 2nd or 3rd going to Calgary, and in turn, Calgary keeps half of Bouwmeester's salary.

The thought was even if Peckham does well what happens with injuries. Are we comfortable with Teubert as the #8.

Granted we probably could worry about that at a later date.

this is all true but the addition of a bouwmeester is the subtraction of potter/whitney. bou can play any situation and we have schultz so he can focus on teh defensive side first.

Bowmeester is far from perfect, but he would likely be out #1 or 2 D-man. His contract is not pretty, but it expires at the end of the 2013-2014, prior to RNH, Yak and Schultz's raises. Bou is a minus player this year, but so are most of the Flames team. Most were minus players in 2011-2012 as well, along with Bow. If you want a stay at home guy with J. Schultz, stick Smid or N. Schultz there. Bow could be on the other unit with the other one of Smid/N. Schultz, and this pushes Whitney/Potter out of the lineup as CornKicker pointed out. Hemsky is one hit from being done for the season, as we have seen in the past. If moving him can help fix our gaping hole on the blueline, great.

I think we need to worry more about adding someone in the top 4 instead of ******* around with these plugs.

That was my thought. No sense in wasting a roster spot on a #8 dman if you don't need to

So Smid or N.Schultz. Who you moving? Or are you pushing N.Schultz down to the #5 slot, which I'd be okay with.

The one worry as time goes on is another team signing Clark, although I'd hope we've had some contact with him and he'd give us a chance to match a deal.

Depending on who fits better with who, I wouldn't even mind seeing Petry as the #5. He is just so inconsistant right now.

If we get rid of Hemsky, who do we have for secondary scoring? Nobody, outside of Yakupov that is, and I wouldn't want to put all my eggs in the basket of a 19 year old. Hesmky isn't overpaid either, not sure where that is coming from. Bouw would look great, no doubt, but that contract of his is a non-starter.

Bouwmeester's contract isn't that bad when you consider the term.
