What good is a s disturber if they don't have a enforcer. The d.s. would piss ppl off and would take it out on are skilled players.

*possibly at the deadline if the Stars are in the race and the Oilers are out of it/Cole won't resign in EDM. Maybe when Mac comes back. What is Ott's status? I wouldn't want him as well. Like the poster said, we need more top 6, not bottom 6 players.

Dallas isn't going to trade young players or picks for veterans. At least I hope to god not. Yeah the team could still make the playoffs, but pretending that it is likely by making a desperation move for a veteran would drive me over the edge.

That said, Ott is guy I could see Dallas moving. He and Avery play the same game. I just don’t think it would be for a veteran, and even if the season wasn’t as dismal as it is, the GM’s have claimed on multiple occasions that picks wouldn’t be traded.

Yeah, if all you're after is the "shift" disturber (clever), then the 2nd could be switched to a roster player. I like Cole, and would be ecstatic if we could somehow package Ott and someone else to get him in Dallas.

Cole has spent the majority of the season on the 3rd line because we already have Hemsky, Horcoff, Penner, Gagner, Nilsson and Cogliano.

Really he's spent a majority of the season on the 3rd line because he's sucked. Among other things, the Oilers need a winger who can pot some goals. It was supposed to be Cole... it isn't.

I don't want Ott on the Oilers. I'm very much against this proposal. I'm sure we have borderline NHL talent (like Ott) in Springfield that we can call up to do the stupid crap he does, though I hope we don't. We do need more hits and energy, but not 'Ott-style'.

I think Avery is more likely to be traded than Ott, and if he is, I'd love the Oilers to try and get him.

The Oilers NEED someone like Avery, not a guy that just fights like MacIntyre. It also makes Stortini expendable, because really, what does he really do other than be a pest?

Avery is also a centre isn't he? Is he any good at faceoffs?

He is fast, he can kind of take faceoffs, and he has a decent wrist shot. Not to mention the locker room cancer that comes with all of that.

FYI: Avery doesn't fight. He turtles.

**** i would trade Avery in a second even for a smaller return just to get his overpayed salary off the books.

Firstly, Avery would never come to E-Town because its not glamorous enough. Nor does he like the Canadian media.

Secondly, Oil wouldn't want him. The one thing we have going for us is a tradition of being one of the most tight-knit teams. Avery is a cancer beyond all understanding.


On to the OP, as someone mentioned before, Dallas wouldn't look at moving young guys and definitely not picks, and definitely not for Cole. I see it being much the opposite, with Zubov, Lehtinen, and perhaps even Mo (if he'd ever agree to put another jersey on) as guys moved as rentals around the deadline. Could be a good year for Dallas in terms of re-tooling what looks like a fairly depleted prospect system.

Do you have any concept whatsoever of how the salary caps, how its going down, and how the Oilers lack top line players, and have too many overpaid 2nd / 3rd liners?

Getting someone like Avery would guarantee we loose Gagner, Cogliano, Smid, and Grebeshkov.

I don't remember a single person with any intellect saying they would be PPG players. Go troll elsewhere.

Steve Ott registers more bodychecks in warmups than the Oilers do in any given game.

HAHA that was funny


Ott would be a good fit for the Oilers, but I think he has more value to the Stars then the Oilers would want to give up

Otter's our number one energy guy right now so I doubt he be dealt. As far as Avery being dealt... He has a NTC that I think a lot of people are forgetting about and he's not about to leave dallas. He says we have hot chicks in TX which is very true, sooooo he's not leavin

Thats a fair offer.

the Oil can move Penner into their top 6 and Ott would give the Oil some grit and a little scoring touch on the 3rd line.

Yeah, Penner has definitely displaced Cole in the top 6. It's not like he was benched for 2 games, given more shorthanded time than powerplay, and has averaged ~15mins a night or anything...

Avery hates the media. He would love the fishbowl that is the City of Champs.

Dude would probably go postal during the first home stand.
