  2. [Proposal] Swapping Picks with Edmonton

    If Oilers trade the 4th overall pick, it's either for a right hand shot top pairing OR trade down for a right hand shot top 4.
  3. [Proposal] Swapping Picks with Edmonton

    I live in Edmonton AND am an Oilers fan. Even though his value is diminished, Oilers still want an asset back that can contribute to the team next season who is younger, preferably defence or in a package for a defenceman.
  4. [Report] Yakupov requested trade out of Edmonton

    Oilers aren't trading Yakupov FOR McCann Oilers need to get bigger and improve the defence. McCann does neither of those. Add on top of that the Oilers would be trading a former 1st overall pick to a division rival. Yakupov has a much greater chance at blowing up in the Oilers' face than McCann the Canucks'.
  5. Who Deserves the Calder and Why

    I find it strange that no one blinks an eye for Gostisbehere not playing in a significant number of Flyer games.

  8. (Discussion) Draft Day Blockbusters

    Oilers number one need is a #3 or better, right hand shot defenceman. Oilers aren't trading their best chip for anything other than that unless it's a trade to parlay into a #3 or better defenceman/

    Hint: Talbot > Miller or Markstrom
  10. [Signing] Justin Schultz to Oilers

    Schultz said in numerous interviews that he didn't want a guaranteed spot, he wanted to earn his place on the team. He also said that his parents aren't Canucks season ticked holders. Looks like he didn't pick Vancouver because he thought the Oilers are a better team for him and a better team going into the future.

    Edmonton trade Pronger to the Ducks after Pronger demands a trade, Oilers trade Pronger FOR Lupul, Smid, 1st, conditional 1st (if Ducks win the cup within the next 3 years) The guaranteed 1st was traded to Phoenix where Phoenix picked Nick Ross. Oiler traded up with Phoenix to pick Riley Nash. Oilers traded Riley Nash in 2010 to Carolina FOR 46th overall where they picked Martin Marincin. The conditional 1st turned into 22nd overall in 2008 where the Oilers picked Jordan Eberle The Oilers in 2007 off season applied an offer sheet to Dustin Penner which the Ducks did not match. The compensation was a 1st, 2nd and a 3rd. The 1st round pick turned into 12th overall. The Ducks traded this pick to Buffalo FOR Buffalo's 1st and 3rd round picks in 2009. The 12th overall pick turned into Tyler Myers. The 2nd round pick from Edmonton which was 43rd overall turned into Justin Schultz. Anaheim traded the 3rd round pick to the Islanders where the Islanders draft Kirill Petrov.

    I was basing the Oilers defencemen on a playoff calibur team.

    It's nice to see that even special needs kids can interact on the internet.

    The Oilers best pairing last season was Smid-Petry. I'd say they'd be an average 2nd pairing on a playoff team. Whitney had a horrible season last year. He was a top pairing defenceman before surgery. Since he's a UFA at the end of the coming season, I expect him to have a rebound season, probably not top pairing but a decent 2nd pairing defenceman. N.Schultz is a stay at home defenceman. Nothing flashy but dependable. He'd probably be an ok 4th or a good 5th defenceman on a playoff team. I put J.Schultz as a top 4 defenceman, it might be premature but we will see. IMO, Oilers need to add one more top 4 defenceman to have a shot at the playoffs.
