It's an oilers fan who made the offer.

Great, find 9 more. And I can't remember ever seeing a single post by Salim786 on HFOil. So he/she isn't a regular contributor.

My point is that you can't argue that Leaf fans are trying to press Blake on you when it was an Oilers fan who made the offer.

Honestly, I can't see Blake being the greatest locker-room guy, given some of the reports of him being a selfish kind of guy, and given the fact that Sundin went after him last night, I can't say I'd take that as a sign of them being buddies last season.

As for the proposal, we'll take our chances with Blake, and I'm sure Burke would NOT want to bring Penner over, considering the terms of how they left.

Doesnt change the fact that an Oiler fan made the proposal.

Looking at the list of players making the same ammount of money as Blake, Jason is doing quite well. He would help any team looking for scoring, and tenacity. The Leafs may actually best served to keep him, all these tankers that want to trade every player and their grandmother, the Leafs are going to somehow need to hit the cap floor. Blake is not as bad as some make him to be, and he certainlly gives 100 % on the ice.

And your welcome to yours. Some leafs posters might be talking blake up a little but most of the stuff you just said make little to no sense what so ever, I mean your saying penner might score 20 goals this year, cool blakes already got 22 in less games more assists and better plus/minus as well. Right now blake would be second on your team in points. And seriously you want to now why we want to trade blake do you even know the point of a rebuild you trade the assests that wont be useful to you by the time your ready to compete so as blake is one of the only reasons we are winning games or getting points in them at the very least ya id say its in our best intrest to ship him out even if its only for a less talented salary dump and a mid level prospect, but saying that burke would not trade for penner for very obvious reasons and if we wanted some one big that doesnt hit we'd just keep antro.

Ok that is valid. Although this isn't the first Blake to Edmonton thread that has been around, so I was venting on the generality of these threads, not this one specifically.

The fact that an Oiler made the proposal doesn't mean he/she speaks for the majority of Oiler fans.

Most of us don't want anything to do with Blake. We didn't bite on the "Tucker is a really valuable player to have" crap either in deadline proposals from previous years and we aren't biting on Blake this year. Feel free to try selling that crap to someone else .

I don't understand why Blake is so hated around here. Penner's younger, that's about it. Blake and his contract>Penner and his contract. No way Burke would ever do this anyways.

I'd say mostly the latter, but the first part isn't wrong to assume either. With the way Blake has been playing this season, he's more valuable to the team if we keep him. In two years when he's looking at UFA, then a move would be smart.

I don't think thats the wisest move. Hes on pace for 60 points this year. If his contract term wasnt as long, like if he had one more season instead of 3 then I believe he could fetch a first round pick from a team looking for a scoring winger like pittsburgh. However right now I'd say his value would be a 2nd and 4th. And I would take it, not sure if he fits the type of player Burke wants on his team. I see him(Burke) getting rid of JFJ's trash.

Burke won't do business with Lowe therefore any trade between the two teams is completely invalid

Nah, I'd consider Penner and Brule though...

Blake has looked amazing as of late. He's no longer a negative asset. Like you mentioned though, Edmonton and Toronto won't make a move as per the Burke/Lowe feud, even if Tambellini is running the show in Edmonton.

To Toronto:

Dustin Penner + Slava Trukhno



Dustin Big **** is still relatively young, Leafs are rebuilding and looking for younger players. Also they are pretty thin in terms of forward prospects; Trukhno has looked good with Springfield this season. Another thing is, getting rid of Blake would bring them closer to a shot @ Tavares

I know that with Lowe and Burke's feud, this won't happen, but

Fire away folks!

LOL

Blake is old and with a VERY bad contract.

Oilers keep the young guy with a bad contact and leafs keep the guy who's wheels tend to fall of for streatches

Hate to disagree here, but I am a huge Oilers fan and I would do it in a second. I don't think I would give up Truhko though. Maybe a pick or some other prospect.

Penner is the most frusterating player ever to watch. He barely hits, therese been so many times he could of absolutely creamed someone in a close game and didn't.

He plays with no heart.

Also he's been on Hemsky's line for the most part. Very low production.

I don't like Blake either but there is no denying he plays with alot of heart. And that is what the Oilers are lacking the most.
