Jeff Finger for Ethan Moreau

While I don't think this will happen since the Oilers want to trade players to get cap relief but what if the Leafs would take back Ethan Moreau, however the Oilers had to take Jeff Finger. Now with Moreau's deal his a UFA after the 2010/2011 season, so is it worth it to get rid of Finger and his horrible contract?

Don't see what is in it for Edmonton. It seems speculation has Moreau as having value, whereas Finger certainly has negative value. It would likely be cheaper to buyout Moreau if they really wanted to get rid of him, rather than taking on Finger.

Throw in Kulemin and we'll think about it.

I'd much rather have a Moreau than Finger in terms of contract size, which is why Edmonton would never do this deal.

Plus, Toronto is one of the few teams in the league that can afford to bury players in the minors, so we may as well take advantage of it instead of giving up assets to ship out big contracts.

NO DEAL!

"Throw in Kulemin and we'll think about it" I can't believe you would not do that. It's not like we would ever trade Kulemin for Moreau anyways. The leafs aren't going to trade Finger, he will be buried in the minors. The leafs would never trade Kulemin in a deal like this.

Notice how both make as much sense as Moreau for Finger? That's like trading VD for HIV.

Why do people keep making posts like this. It happens like 10 times a day. It wasn't even clever the first time someone said something like this. What's wrong with "no"?

As much of a leafs fan as I am, and as much as I want Finger's salary off our books; THIS WON'T HAPPEN.

The oilers are looking to shed salary unless they can upgrade one of the several positions they need upgraded.

Jeff Finger is not an upgrade for the oiler defense. Ethan Moreau has been talked about by a few teams and actually seems to have trade value.

Bottom line;

The oilers won't trade one of their only vets w/ trade value for a salary dump.

Exactly my point. You don't have to be snide to prove your point.

As for Jeff Finger, it's gonna take highway robbery to get rid of him.Whoever ends up trading for that chilean package should be fired.

why the F( and I mean with a big, HUGE F) would the oilers want Finger and his 3.5mill for two more season over Ethen's and his one more year at 2?

Oiler traded Grebs(who has not been a healthy scratch) to free up that money and to make room for either Chorney or Pekham in their line up

Exactly what I was thinking, how does this trade do anything remotely positive for Edmonton?





Well I guess getting rid of Moreau is a positive....

I'm not going to bother checking exact stats, but, Finger is practically outscoring Moreau and he's been scratched for 1/2 the season

/edit ...okay, i checked, Finger has 4 less points, in 30 less games

Why do the leafs want Moreau anyway? They have plenty of grinders who are earning less. Your best best with Finger is to package him with Poni or to trade him for player in similar situation (maybe Preissing??) to give both players a fresh start.

Nope, our best option is to send him to the minors. Both Burke and Finger have recognized this is an option, he hasn't played well enough to be an NHL player so far this year.

value for jeff finger

I personally think Burke has done a pretty good job with the lack of talent we started with, but the one blockbuster move that needs to be done is to do the first Fans for Player trade. It will be a remarkable day and I think Vancouver gets a little ripped off but here it is

Coming to the leafs: The infamous Greemen

Going to Vancouver: Jeff Finger

...who am i kidding, Jeff Finger may be worth 1 Greeman at best. Cliff Fletcher...WHYYYYYYYYY

If you will also take O'Sullivan/Nilsson along with Moreau, than maybe.

The funny part, Horcoff would EASILY be a top-6 forward on the Leafs right now.

He'd be the Leafs third line centre, but he'd help out a fair bit defensively. Either way, it has nothing to do with Horcoff as a player, the contract is the biggest problem with him from Toronto's POV.
