If he's untouchable, he's untouchable... and I don't really think overpaying like hemsky+ is something I'd want to do.

To me the killer there isn't Keith or Seabrook, but Barker. I would prefer him. I really want his hard, accurate, release from the point.

Oh well. Isn't to be had.

And 29 other GMs want him too.

IMO, Baker is the best of the young D-Men not playing regularly in The NHL. I would rather have him then EJ and JJ.

Edit: I just read that... I want to make clear:
Baker > EJ
Baker > JJ
EJ + JJ > Baker alone.....

I wouldn't be surprised if that was the asking price. According to Lowe, Hemsky was the price for alot of gaolies last year.

I'm sorry who's Baker? I think we were talking about Cam Barker?

I would love any of Chicago's young studs. Unfortuately, the Hawks have zero reason to move them, and most likely won't. A kid doesn't really help us right now anyway. Aucoin could help but his contract is disgusting.

Yup I think it would be much easier to try and get a guy like Mezsaros or Carle/Vlasic from a bubble contending team then targeting the bottom place guys. They have no reason to move their kids. At least with an Ottawa or a SJ, you can argue the short term gains (playoff run) balances out the long term loss.

Man I wish we had made a play for JJ earlier in the year.

Dude, how would Ryan Smyth even help your team? He'll play 18 games while you don't make the playoffs and then sign with another team? The only way your GM would move someone like Keith for someone like Smyth would be if they were signing him, and if that was the case, and you knew Kevin Lowe was that convinced the Oilers couldn't sign Smyth themselves, then why wouldn't you wait until summer and sign Smyth for free?

Just saying.

I also think people need to stop putting Lupul and Stoll on even terms in trade proposals. I don't think Lupul's getting traded for anything short of a blockbuster, but Stoll's probably second only to Hemsky in terms of untouchable on this team, right now.

So, does that mean Chara is available and if the Oilers tried to get him prior to trading for Pronger would they look at a deal for Chara and would we want them to?

Chara plays for Boston, not Chicago.

I'd do Lupul for Keith. I used to live in Kelowna and saw Keith play there for a couple of seasons. Very smooth skater, good offensively. I would like to see Keith wearing the Oil drop.

This is a good deal for both teams. Keith is going to be a great player. Amazing speed...

Yeah I have to say I haven't seen Keith much but last night was a real eye opener! What a great skater... and I loved that iso shot of him behind the net screaming out instructions on the breakout... the Oilers need that. Plus he had a sweet spin move coming out of his zone and looks composed on the point. Too bad Talon will never deal the kid.
