It is Eberle for Myers and Stafford

Whitney currently has negative value soon to be a UFA


Oilers need a gritty D-man more then what Myers brings to the table

Deal does not work for both teams and both fans bases will be unhappy

Wait, what void are Eberle and Whitney supposed to fill in Buffalo? We already have a 1st line RW and defensemen who suck.

Myers is one of the worst defensemen in the league, no thanks.

Ya, why trade Eberle when you can trade Whitney+Hemsky for Subban?

Yeah, Whitney sucks, but it was the double edged element of your comment that made it epic. You slam Whitney but do so in a way that expresses you opinion of the state of your own team's defense.

I like Eberle, but I'm going to be patient with the big guy. Myers is still better than Chara was at his age.

It was a different guy who posted the original comment, but I actually misinterpreted your post. I thought you were implying that the guy was being ridiculous for implying that Whitney is "a defenseman who sucks"

I'd do this. Buffalo has 5 total goals from wingers not named Vanek or Pominville. Foligno-Ennis-Eberle sounds very exciting.

That does sound like a pretty good line. Our D is going to have so many problems without Myers though. He's been more bad than good this year, but when he's on, no one else on our blue line comes close.

Nope. Quite the contrary.

Yeah, no this wouldn't happen.

Eberle is by far and quite easily the best player in that deal. The Oil won't trade him.

The void Eberle fills is scoring from a group that isn't Vanek/Hodgson/Pominville.

Those 3 have 26 goals combined. The entire rest of the forward core has 12 with half of those coming from Ennis.

Eberle has as many goals as every winger on the team not named Vanek or Pominville combined.

If Buffalo is looking to re-tool maybe Myers for Kelbom and a 1st.
It's a deep draft and Edmonton will likely be picking 10-20.

Dear Lord, Myers has horrible value at the moment and Eberle is coming off a 34 goal sophomore season. Not a chance you'd get Eberle for that package.

To get Eberle, you'd probably have to give up Myers, Foligno and a pick.

Ok, Myers + Foligno + 2nd. Done.

I wouldn't trade Myers for Eberle and Edmonton's entire draft next year.

Why in the WORLD would buffalo buy high on Eberle and sell low on Myers.

Offensively, we are fine. We've got Armia coming next year. Grigerenko on the roster currently. We need D. We've got 3 under contract that aren't ELC's next season.

If I'm moving Myers, its as part of a package for a true #1 d-man. Adding more forwards, even a one was skilled as Eberle at the cost of a potential franchise d-man at this point is pure stupidity

Eberle is a great player, the best player on a very bad team. Myers is not Chara. He could be if he played with a nasty physical edge, but he plays soft.

I'm not an Edmonton fan, but Eberle is the last guy I would trade on that team.

Agreed. If they are going to trade a top (young) foward it should be Hall.

I agree with the majority of your post, Buffalo has offensive prospects that are waiting in the wings and I'm not sure why Edmonton would want to trade their best player away when they already have trouble scoring as it is.

It's a weird year, where things normalize over an 82 game season, teams on hot streaks can make the playoffs and go deep in a 48 game season. Making too much about anything that happens this year is speculative at best, and catastrophic at worst.
