TO BUF:

Nail Yakupov
Ales Hemsky
Martin Marincin

To EDM:

Thomas Vanek
Christian Ehrhoff

Sabres get a stud young forward who fits their rebuild very well... plus a D... Oilers get a top five winger in the NHL and a true #2 D... Hemsky could just be traded at the deadline by BUF for a pick and if he sucks too bad to trade he is a UFA so walks in the summer anyway

Vanek-RNH-Eberle
Hall-Gagner-Perron
UFA-UFA-UFA
Joensuu-Gordon-Jones
Brown Smyth

Smid-Ehrhoff
Ference-J. Schultz
N. Schultz-Petry
Potter

Ennis-Hodgson-Yakupov
Leino-Grigorenko-Hemsky
Foligno-Larsson-Stafford
Kaleta-Adam-Ott
Tropp Scott

You can't actually be an Oilers fan since you clearly haven't watched any of the games. Yakupov is far more physical than Vanek. The last thing we need is another erimeter player.

Yak isn't going anywhere unless it's for a #1D... and even then it's unlikely he'll be moved. Yak is gonna be better than both those players and the oilers can't afford Vanek. Maybe something could evolve around ehrhoff

Don't mind if you feel he is more valuable than Vanek and Ehrhoff but don't confuse that with who is better now.

If Edmonton had confirmation that Vanek would resign then this may be a possibility; since they wouldn't the Oilers have no reason to make this trade.

Yak has a hell of a long way to go before he can ever be considered better than Vanek. Someone needs to take a good look at Vanek's career to date.

500 points in 600 games.

What are you talking about? Vanek has 1 year left. That's actually the problem. His value would be higher if he was signed longer term.

you talk about the op not watching games and then you call Vanek a perimeter player. Next time when you actually watch Vanek play, notice how much punishment he takes game in and game out while parked in front of the net where he scores the majority of his goals. Vanek isn't a perimeter player AT ALL. He plays a power forward game meaning he uses his 6'2, 210 pound frame to protect the puck and get position in front of the net. Vanek is by far the best player in the league when he is in his office at the top of the crease. No player can deflect shots and slam home rebounds as good as Vanek. And also, Vanek averages 35 goals a season while getting 17 minutes a game. When he gets 20 mins a game he actually scores at a 85+ point pace.

I wouldn't trade Marincin alone for Ehrhoff and I know what Ehrhoff brings to the table.

Either you expect Marincin to become a #1 guy or you really don't know.

That's good because the Sabres would not do it. Ehrhoff had great year on a crap team. He has long term contract but Sabres paid the big money up front. He's only a $4 million cap hit, low for a # 2 guy who can play tons of minutes. The right PP and that shot will take off.
Marincin looks like he's built like a toothpick. Is he really 6'5 and only 196 pounds?

Yakupov isn't going anywhere unless we're getting Weber and Nashville is paying for part of his contract.

No no no NO way to this deal.

Sorry, but no.

We are in no way wanting to trade Yakupov so an overpayment like that is what it would take, or some type of Number 1 Defensman otherwise we have zero reason to move him.

Nail Yakupov is one of those rare franchise wingers. You always overpay for a player you want to build your franchise around, ask Brian Burke.

Edmonton can't afford that deal. The contracts are too big, and Yakupov was really showing some great play and production in the last ten games. He will be a beast and plays a more physical game than Vanek so yea, Oilers say a big no.

Sabres' fans didn't propose the above trade.

I just dont think the Oilers could do this and live with themselves. There's much easier ways to land Vanek. Yakupov has star, star potential. Like superstar potential.

Vanek is hands down better than your entire team to date, time will tell with Hall but as for Vanek in the last 7 seasons he hasn't had under a 50 point season. He is what you call "MONEY"

That's fine, with all your "superstar" youngsters you haven't made the playoffs in how long? I rather Sabres resign Vanek. He's too good to just pass up.

Vanek + Veteran Leadership > Yakupov, Hall, RNH, Hemsky

This is why we cant have nice things.
