  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'.

    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.

    Do you know what a top 4 defenceman is? It's a defenceman who plays either 1st of 2nd pairing, usually getting 20+ minutes a night that can take a regular shift even strength and play on at least one of the special teams.

    1. The statement from Katz was the Oilers would not be sustainable in Edmonton without a new arena. 2. I agree that Edmonton doesn't have any top pairing defencemen. 3. We'll see. Schnieder plays infront of a good team which helps him look better as a goalie. 4. If Krueger goes anytime soon, so does Tambellini. 5. The UFA market is a horrible place to get players. Teams end up spending big money on average players. 6. Chciago was hooped because of a few reasons. One is that Tallon didn't submit the qualifying offers in time. Another one is that Toews and Kane were on their final year of their entry level deals and were already extended to 6.3 mil contracts. Since Chicago won the cup, Toews, Kane and a few others received bonus performances that were pushed to the next season making it even harder for them to retain their players.

    Schneider has played a total of what, 76 games? Dubnyk has played 101. Both are around the same age but never played a full season as a starter. Schneider may have better numbers but he plays infront of a better team. Elliott had amazing stats last season. Is he the best goalie in the league?

    What the F are you talking about. 1. Oilers are building a new arena as we speak 2. The Oilers now have five top 4 defencemen. 3. Dubnyk can go either way, just like Schnieder 4. Oilers were one of the best places to coach. It was recently that the coaches started coming in and out. 5. The Oilers have one owner, Darryl Katz of Rexall pharmacies. He is one of the richest people in Canada. 6. All players hit free agency, same time or not it doesn't make much of a difference

    To the small minority of decent Canuck fans, thank you for keeping me posted and being gracious and respecting the Oilers and the City of Edmonton. To the majority of Canuck fans. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA
