Trade Rumours and Proposals Thread: Eberle Trade Watch?

New thread. Continue here:

Some posts.

my reasoning is that we simply don't have anybody even remotely ready to take over eberle's RW spot.... when you include the loss of letestu or kassian, it just isn't worth it in my mind... although either of those players are more easily replaced, especially letestu, which is why i think LV would take kassian, even with the substance abuse problems

So, in terms of physicality, I would say he is of the Larsson type with much better fighting capability.

Although, hearing 'Islanders & Colorado in chase for Eberle' is pretty encouraging.

Hamonic seems less than realistic in a straight up deal. If they're willing to make that kind of move to find a forward for Tavares to play with, I'd think they'd be in on Matt Duchene first.

I'm good with Barrie for Eberle because Barrie is pretty much what the Oilers are missing at RHD. They don't need heavy all-purpose defenseman, they need points and a right hand shot on the PP.

I wonder if Hamonic has a bit more offense to give in the right situation. I would really welcome him on the Oilers blueline.

It really feels like a lot of things are "moving" right now.

I'm thinking Chia signs at least 1 RW in free agency and trades Eberle a week or so after July 1 to a team that is desperate for top 6 scoring

"Buffalo is trying to trade Kane, would they look for a replacement?
What's going to happen in Arizona with Shane Doan? Is he coming back?
Dreger mentioned Colorado and NYI and we've discussed NYI and people have assumed Strome would be the guy. He is not at the level that Eberle is at. Colorado is a wildcard - maybe it's a different type of deal or a positional deal. If that's the case maybe you wait - I don't even know what you can get back. Barrie? I don't know."

"Maybe a Hamonic or a Barrie move wouldn't even be in the realm of possibility, but if it is, that changes the complexion on Russell."

Hamonic is a no brainer over Barrie. Better Dman, cheaper contract, can play tough matchups.
Barrie is probably a better fit stylistically but Hamonic is the better player although durability is a real concern with him.


As for the Russell speculation by Rishaug, it sounds like that, speculation. I'm listening to the Nielsen & Fraser podcast now and he said when push comes to shove, he thinks the Oilers will bite on the 4yrs $16M because Chia tipped his hand at the year end presser that he wants to re-sign Russell knowing the term that he wants. Sounds like pure speculation to me rather than insider knowledge.

Bob sounds genuinely unsure of what is happening.

Edit: He does seem fairly convinced that a Russell signing is contingent on what happens with other moves.

Maybe it's Eberle for Brock Nelson?

Bob Stauffer also said Mark Fayne may start the year on the 3rd pair and believes there could be some soft interest on Benoit Pouliot during the year from a team who has a guy who's coached him before.

I'd rather have Hamonic over Barrie anyday of the week. Problem is that it's rumoured they flat out declined him for Taylor Hall. At least that's what Staple and his merry band of idiots believe

i really don't mind fayne on the 3rd pairing... shoots right, so is at least in his natural position... he's not a great player, but he's certainly not TERRIBLE either

I'm not a russell hater but even I wouldn't sign him for 4 x 4. Rishaug carrying the water for oilers management again means it's likely going to happen and it scares the **** out of me.

It wouldn't surprise me if there are a number of trades already made. But the Knights are probably involved in all of them in some way, so the moves can't be reported yet.

So we would be looking at

Klefbom-Larsson
Russell-Benning
Nurse-Fayne

to start the season

Yes, but they can't disclose them if Las Vegas is involved. I'm saying that there are probably already trades made, but those trades include LV in someway (e.g., 3-way deal), so they can't be announced.

I hope Fayne is not on the starting roster come opening night

Which would make it more annoying, since we have to wait until next Wednesday for the LV trades to open up. (**** this league for telling teams to do this)

Zero indication that that was going to happen. I love when that happens.
