I don't want to say "none," because that's boring, so Eberle would probably be the one to go so him.

None will be traded, but Hall will be the first one waived.

If they want to be a good team they should trade one of them for defense but considering their management none.

Subban can't get any 2 of the kids, let alone the two most valuable plus two 1st rounders.

MacT wishes any combination of his players was worth Subban.

Yakupov or Eberle, most likely Yak gets the boot even though I think he will be a bigger star than Eberle will ever be.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means

Subban might be worth more than any of the Oilers players individually, but he's not even close to being worth two of Hall/Yak/Ebs/RNH.

This lol. Yes they are all going to become great players but when it's time for them to get paid, good luck focusing most of your money on them while still having a mediocre goaltender and defense.

Hall is already locked up for a while at a discount. Eberle's contract could be an overpayment, an underpayment, or even. We will see if he can return to last season's form. Either way, he's locked up for a while as well. Horcoff, Hemsky, Whitney, and Khabibulin represent $18.25m of their cap. They'll most likely all be gone by the time RNH/Yakupov are signed.

As for tying up a lot of money in forwards...Suppose RNH and Yakupov also sign for $6.00m (that's what Hall and Eberle got). That's $24.00m in total. Here's the top 4 forwards caphits for some good teams around the league + Carolina (highest I think) for the 2013-2014 season.

Anaheim: $24.37m (Getzlaf, Perry, Ryan, Cogliano)
Boston: $22.00m (Lucic, Seguin, Bergeron, Krejci)
Carolina: $26.98m (Staal, Semin, Staal, Skinner)
Chicago: $23.78m (Kane, Toews, Sharp, Hossa)
Los Angeles: $21.47m (Kopitar, Richards, Carter, Williams)
Pittsburgh: $26.13m (Crosby, Malkin, Neal, Kunitz)
Vancouver: $21.70m (Sedin, Sedin, Kesler, Burrows)
Washington: $25.24m (Ovechkin, Backstrom, Laich, Erat)

Edmonton: $24.00m ?? (Hall, Eberle, Nugent-Hopkins, Yakupov)

It will be perfectly fine. Remember that Hall deal that was bashed all over HF? That's a huge reason why.

Well, looking at the names, a good portion.

So, what was the point?

He definitely isn't worth Yak or Hall at this point. If he can keep his production up for a full season then maybe we'll talk.

Eberle is a 60 to 70 point forward who has slowly progressed from disaster to passable in his own end. He may be "cool under pressure" and have elite offensive capabilities who is at his best given sheltered minutes (hence why Smyth/Horcoff take the toughs). He's essentially Mike Cammalleri at his best with MAYBE some upside. A great supporting piece. If the Oilers can get a good return on Eberle and they aren't listening to it, they aren't doing their job. And by "they" I mean if MacTavish wants to be Tambicakes v2.0.

I would never trade a guy like Eberle.

I voted Yakupov.

None for a while.

But if someone is, I'd guess it will be Eberle.

Hall looks like Olli Jokinen and Matt Damon, therefore he must go.

Hall, he'll demand a trade out of Edmonton because in three years they'll still be competing for the lottery.
