So if it is true that Pitt is going to be taking offers on Letang this summer and into next season, what would you offer? Hemsky+ simply won't get it done.

If they are willing to discuss something that doesn't involve the big 5 then cool. If they want one of them, then they can send Letang elsewhere.

The market may be odd this summer, cap compliance buyouts may flood the market with good players looking for new deals.

What are the chances that New Jersey would be willing to move Clarkson?He would be the perfect player for this team.

Think what they got for J. Staal but with forwards.

He's a 29 year old unrestricted free agent who will be seeking a 7 year contract. No thanks.

Not sure they would want one of the big 5. They want low salary players hence trading letang in first place. Probly Petry, paajarvi, 1st

Has there been any indication he'll be seeking a 7 year contract? If so, that's nuts.

If it's unrealistic then I look to get a top 4 LHD via trade. My whole ideology was instead of going whale hunting for guys like Milan Lucic who are really never available, we upgrade the bottom 6 with size/grit to bring a different element to the team.

Agreed, and we should be ready to pounce on these types of moves for picks/prospects.

I suppose not then.

Like I said, there should be some players looking for contracts after buy outs. No reason to give up valuable assets for Letang when there are other options on the market.

These are 2 neccessary peices on a cup team. Both contracts are up next year, we can get them cheaper


The problem though is that by the time we're ready to go on a cup run,these two won't be affective NHLers anymore.

I'd easily offer Yakupov for Letang. No questions. You have no desire to improve this team if you don't agree, Letang is one hell of a defense-man.

It would be better to offer Eberle.Nail Yakupov has higher upside than Eberle in the future.

Hemsky for $2.5 has to be very attractive to teams. Smyth well we are likely stuck with him....might be able to move at next years deadline. N. Schultz I'm fine with as dmen around the league are scarce.

My ideal summer looks like:

-Gagner for Gormely and H. Samuelson
-Hemsky + 2nd for Alzner (pick up Hemskys contract to get it done)
-Paajarvi for M. Foligno (add draft picks or prospects to get Buf to accept)
-hopefully be in position to draft Monahan
-sign Torres, Scuderi, Hendricks, Begin, and A. Hall, and Smithson for insurance in case Monahan isn't ready

Hall-Nuge-Ebs
Foligno-Monahan-Yak (2nd or 3rd line)
Torres-Horcoff-A. Hall
Begin-Hendricks-Brown
ex: Smithson and Smyth

Alzner-JS
Smid-Petry
Scuderi-NS
ex: Potter

Gormely in AHL until ready to be impact player (Det style). If Scuderi can't be signed I would go for Regehr or D. Murray
You actually think the Capitals would trade you Alzner for Hemsky and a 2nd round pick? He's as much a need for the Capitals as he is for the Oilers. That trade is brutally bad for the Capitals.

The Oilers need more players that play big and hit.




Yakupov has the upside to score more points than Eberle,plus he hits a lot,while Jordan Eberle plays small the whole time.


Eberle is the odd-man out.

Real stupid post.



No one was saying to trade for a plug using one of the top forwards.


I was suggesting on trading Eberle for a top defenseman.

I do think Hendricks would be a fantastic fit for you guys. He's character all the way, I hope the Capitals keep him but he would be a great player for you guys.

Also, say what you will about Laich and I'm glad most of you agree that he is a fantastic player worth pursuing but whoever said that his contract and term are long and prohibitive is right. Especially if you project him as your third line center, you just don't pay the price to get a guy like Laich and not put him in your top 6, and that's where he thrives. Put creativity around him and he'll score alot of points.

Did you watch the Flyers/Penguins series last year? Tell me who the worst player on the ice was for either team....it was Letang.

Letang is a phenomenal offensive defenseman....who absolutely SUCKS defensively. You do not give up a 19 year old offensive dynamo for a Kris Letang.....

Here are the D-men I'd trade one of the 4 stud kids for:

Karlsson
Doughty
Pietrangelo
Myers
Del Zotto
McDonagh
Hedman
OEL
Larsson
Brodin

Sorry but that list is really bad. No way you trade one the 4 kids for Brodin, del zotto, or myers. You also don't have subban or shattenkirk.

Hall-RNH-Eberle
Yakupov-Gagner-Hemsky
Paajarvi-Horcoff-BLANK
Smyth-Lander-Hartikainen

Brown-Smithson

J.Schultz-BLANK
Smid-Petry
N.Schultz-Potter

Fistric-Klefbom

Dubnyk
BLANK

Cut the fat, being Jones/Whitney/Khabby/Petrell/Belanger/Peckham
Give Lander and Hartikainen spots, because they deserve it. Sign some decent depth behind them who can be the organization's 5th line/OKC top line. Mike Brown and Jerred Smithson would be your 13th and 14th forwards.

On D, I wouldn't just give Klefbom the role right away, If he plays well enough, then you have ammo to trade (Potter or Fistric)

So, I've identified three open roster spots:
3rd line RW-
No.2 D-
No.2 G-

Targets?
G-Not a huge deal, because Dubnyk has to be given the bulk of starts. Maybe we take a look at familiar face Mathieu Garon, Sharks backup Thomas Greiss, or Habs goalie Peter Budaj, who are all UFAs.

D-The only UFA that may fit the bill is Mark Streit, but he's older. You could make Keith Yandle a trade target, or other d-men, but that may cost us a roster player. An RFA offer sheet? They rarely work. There is no doubt this will be the toughest hole to fix, but it needs to be done.

3rd line RW-Dupuis? Torres? Trade? Usually some players hit draft day available and we have two 2nd round picks, so we'll see.

We don't need to change the core here, but we need one D addition and some depth.

After watching this LA game the Oilers are in dire need of some size in the top six. Kopitar and Carter are just pushing us around. Obviously Nuge isn't going anywhere. I think it's time to move Gagner for a "hockey trade"

There aren't going to be that many top six C's with size available so the Oilers brass is going to have to get creative.
