Yeah I don't have any classes Monday so I'll probably get up early and watch the ****storm. I do like TSN's coverage but it'll probably be slower than most years with a lot of recapping the trades that already happened. It should pick up though an hour or two before the actual deadline.

If we did get Richards (not gonna happen), we would suddenly turn into the Penguins of the West. Not as good center wise (but still probably 2nd best duo in the league), a better overall defense, and the goalies are similar. I think we have better wingers, though.

But it's just nice to hear we're one of two teams he would want to go to.
You're right, both teams would have their #1 center out with a concussion.

I'm sure Versus' NHL Overtime will cover it as well at 8PM
That sucks. I want while it's happening coverage, not after the fact.

Hopefully it will be streams.

Not that I don't love Perron, but he has been out since November 4th with a concussion. He's still having bad enough symptoms that he is seeing a specialist in Vancouver and hasn't even put on skates since. Who knows if he can become symptom free any time soon.

Jokinen and Michalek would top my list of mid-tier solutions. Filatov would be an absolute homerun for the future though.

Thought about it, his numbers are not that great in two and half up and down seasons but numbers don't always tell the story.

Would we trade Eberle (Schenn) for Kopitar (Hemsky) and D. Brown (Penner), maybe thats not a fair analogy but that would basically be trading 2 proven commodities for a guy who hasn't even established himself.

To trade Penner & Hemsky in a package deal for a 2 for 1 deal we need to get back

1) Franchise Goalie; Ryan Miller, Roberto Luongo esque goalie
2) A very good #1-#2 D-man Pronger, Weber, Doughty,
3) Forward capable of 30-35 goals and/or 90 point player


Well I'm done reading the Oilers Proposal thread till the deadline is over.

Michalek and Clarkson are my picks that shouldn't cost the moon and would help going forward.

Does anyone know where footage will be shown this year? I don't have NHL Network (not offered by TW in San Diego). I know in years past, Versus has picked it up or nhl.com.
Or if you have an iPhone get he TSN TradeCenter App. It sends out live updates of the trades as they break, PLUS you can stream the entire show live on your phone.

Ridiculous. That's almost as much as Doughty would/should get.

When the Oiler fans bring up that they should get Schenn + Kopitar or Doughty for Hemsky/Penner, it's time to stop everything.

Am I the only one who thinks Hemsky/Penner doesn't make us Cup contenders? I think adding Richards, alone, would give us a better shot than adding both of them, but that's just me.

Oilers fans are slowly creeping towards the level of Leafs fans.

The Oilers surged into the postseason the year that they made the finals as well, albeit after landing Roloson. Again, IMO you guys are closer than you think. You just need that extra octane boost up front and you guys are a serious threat in the second season.

The game yesterday showed the Kings are still a year or two away from making a serious Cup run instead of getting on a lucky hot streak. We were up 4-0, at home, against a bad team, and we took stupid penalties, coasted, and almost had to go to overtime because of our mistakes. That happened another time with the Jackets.

I don't see the Kings being able to take down the Wings AND Canucks to even make the Finals. And if we got there, I don't see us having the legs or scoring depth to beat the Flyers in a seven game series.

Kings aren't ready for a Cup. We make too many dumb mistakes to be a Cup contender.

Am I right in assuming that everyone on this board would want Hemsky if it didn't cost Schenn?

I'm coming around to not having to make a huge move. Chemistry is good and the Kings are on a tear. That being said the playoffs have already begun and it is not going to get any easier. Depending on the return, Richards would be a dynamic add. Hemsky would be a good pick up and I would love to have him, but he is just overpriced right now. Aside from those two there isn't much available that is a significant style changing upgrade.

Picking up someone like Jussi Jokinen would help more than just adding Moller tho. I won't be terribly disappointed if we make smaller moves as long as its not just Cheechoo.
