All rumors from November 8 involving Edmonton

Quote:
@tpanotchCSN: Told today Flyers are talking with EDM about Eberle

Quote:
Misery usually loves company, so Team A general manager of a club that can’t win a game on any day of the week ending with the letter y often calls up Team B general manager of a side that wins about once every fortnight and asks for a high-end player, hoping they can scratch each other’s back.

That’s how the trade game works. Bad teams deal with other bad teams, trying to shuffle some deck chairs.

So, there is an excellent chance that Philadelphia Flyers’ GM Paul Holmgren, running a club with 22 goals in 15 games, called Edmonton Oilers’ counterpart Craig MacTavish, the boss of a team with four wins in 17 games, and threw a line in the water. “Listen, MacT, I know you consider Jordan Eberle part of your core with (Ryan) Nugent Hopkins and (Taylor) Hall, but would you ever think of trading him? Maybe we have some bigger, tougher guys for your team?”

Maybe MacTavish would listen (doesn’t cost you anything) but absolutely, categorically, he is NOT TRADING JORDAN EBERLE. MacTavish has watched the Flyers recently, in Carolina, along with president of hockey ops Kevin Lowe, so you know he’s looking at the Flyers, but trading Eberle is a non-starter. MacTavish isn’t saying anything on the record but I can assure you, it is a laughable premise for the first-year general manager, who has Eberle on a six-year, $36 million contract. MacTavish, if he was talking, would say “Not A Chance.”

Holmgren isn't going to trade another captain is he?

I'm seeing lots of people on the trade board talking about Giroux going back the other way. I just don't see us trading him right now.

I will be absolutely pissed off if Claude Giroux is traded for anything short of Crosby, Malkin, or Stamkos. I know those won't happen. Bottom line: I will be absolutely pissed off. Do NOT. DON'T.

Giroux is going nowhere. Anybody else is a different story.

People on the main board are idiots, I wouldn't listen to anything they have to say about Giroux being traded.

Giroux isn't getting traded.

If he is, the fanbase should burn down the WFC.

Yep, If Giroux is traded(which I think is extremely unlikely) I will have to say my devout relationship with the Flyers would be close to over. I have been a die hard fan for all the years on my life, and if they trade another captain because the GM is not competent enough to hire the right coach or sign the right players to his system, then it's over. Way too much stock is put into the "C", everyone needs to be accountable. Homer should be fired first before he has the chance to blow this team up again. Giroux and Richards are two separate cases also, there was a lot more to Richards going then there is going on right now with Giroux. Giroux's biggest fault? He plays on a very poorly constructed team.

Do yourself a favor, and don't read the trade boards. It's full of a bunch of misguided individuals who have no idea what fair value is. It's nothing more than a place for fans to talk up their own players. I have maybe, MAYBE seen 2-3 trade proposals made there that have made sense.

Schenn Schenn and Coburn for Eberle and J. Schultz or Klefbom.

Hartnell Giroux Eberle
Simmonds Lecavalier Voracek
Read Couturier Downie

Timonen Schultz/Kleftbom
Streit Grossman
Gus Gill.

Makes a lot of sense to me.

I wouldn't worry. Eberle would score 5 for the Flyers, including the game tying, and overtime winner.

I would stop following the Flyers if they traded Giroux. Period. Enough is enough with this crap. Do people seriously not realize that he's the best player they've had since Lindros?

As an Oiler fan, I wouldn't expect the Flyers to trade Giroux. Im sure he's untouchable. What the Oilers would need in my opinion is some toughness, which the Flyers have a plenty. Depth at Center would be helpful too.
Wayne Simmonds would be of interest, Brayden Schenn or Sean Couturier would also be huge for a return for the Oilers.
Now, if one or any of those players are available is another story. Eberle is a pure goal scorer so I would expect that the return would have to be somewhat decent.

There are plenty of trade pieces the Flyers could use to try and get Eberle.

Giroux isn't one of them.

I could see something like this happening. I think the Flyers have been really disappointed with the development of the Schenn brothers. They were both brought in with the expectation to be key cogs, and both have become second tier for this team.

I'd bet a large amount of money Timmy is throwing **** against a wall to get traction.

I would do the Schenn brothers+Coburn+2nd rounder for Eberle+J. Schultz. Schultz is a right handed defender the Flyers desperately need, and he would provide some nice offense and puck moving ability.

I don't think Edmonton does that though.

Oilers wouldn't give up both Schultz and Eberle. Schultz is the only puck moving dman they have.

I can't imagine them trading Giroux because of a 15 game slump. I just don't see it happening. Anyone else I think is fair game after this horrific start, but I just don't see Giroux getting dealt.

My fear with Schultz is that he chose to go to EDM when he had the availability to pick whatever team, how much are you getting from him and will he bolt right back there when he gets the chance?

Dude... come on... I never said he was. I'm saying the only way I would be cool with trading G would be if it was for one of those guys. I also went on to say it would never happen. Basically, I don't wanna trade Giroux. It was a bit of hyperbole.
