Edmonton need something, or someone if they want to make the playoffs. We know that Toronto wants to get rid of him. And with a fairly low values right now Edmonton could get him without hasle. Assuming other teams arn't interested.

Obvioulsy he's not the impact player that theywould need, (like if they signed Jager), but it might help the cause.

If they're having problems motivating Penner, they'll have a heckuva time with Antropov, imo.

maybe, but i think players change, penners atitude changed when he came to Edmonton, (not for the better), but may be antropov's would. Trades have a way of motivating players. And its most definatly likly that Nics on the move out of Toronto

Can't see Burke trading with Tambellini based on Kevin Lowe still being a big part of the organization.


But, I could see something like this if it happened.....


Brule, 2nd in 09

for

Antropov

The more and more I see comments on Antropov such as "overrated" and "terrible", the more I realize how ignorant some fans are. He's not a star, but he's hard working and passionate. It'll be great to see him go somewhere and start producing, the team that gets him will love him.

Jesus Christ, some of you are clueless.

That's still not enough for a game breaker like Antropov, Edmonton would likely have to add West Edmonton Mall and Sam Gagner to the deal to balance it out.

Seriously though, I wouldn't mind trying him out for the remainder of the year, and maybe extending him if he fits in, but I don't give up Brule for him.

Antropov is not going to stay in Edmonton if he gets traded there, no UFA does, so he'd be a rental..

Non-playoff teams don't trade for rentals.

Yet he'd be second in scoring on your team and that is even having gone through a serious slump, he's coming out of it though and has 3 goals in the last 5 games.

Some people on these boards will say that about any european player given a chance. I bet they're the same people that said that about Datsyuk a few years back.

I wouldn't even move Schremp for him, I think Schremp still has better value to some teams who might still be intrigued by his ability and not so caught up in his defensive game, or teams who have enough structure to overcome his shortcomings on that side of the puck. Antropov is a pending UFA who likely isn't going to be too much of a difference maker, so I'd only offer a mid-level prospect like Jacques or O'Marra and a 3rd rounder or something. Obviously not enough for Toronto to bite, but there's no way I'd give up on Schremp or Brule for 20 games of a mediocre but talented player like Nik.

Antropov is outscoring every Oilers player not named Hemsky, despite an awful supporting cast and going through a stretch of 16 games without scoring a goal.

What about Antropov is "mediocre"?

I still somewhat doubt that Burke would even deal with Tambellini. Although it wouldnt be very professional not too if there was a deal to be made that could benefit both sides.

To the original maker of the thread Antropov's value isn't exactly low compared to a lot of people on your team. Burke has publically said that Antropov will be traded as he needs a change of scenery. So saying you could get him while his value is "low" isnt exactly right as he is on a Career high pace for 58 points right now.

Burke will not deal with the franchise at all, its the moral right. Kevin Lowe is the president, if you have a feud with a person in another organization why would you then turn around and try to trade with them? It makes no sense, Burke will not trade with Edmonton plain and simple.

I don't agree with that. Burke has said he will not negotiate with Lowe, he still has good relations with Steve T. As does Nonis.
