Ok i know they are in the same division but would you do this deal as it is reported edm has shown interest in Lu. This would make both teams better and would probably make us and edm favorites. Deal only gets done if we cant sign edler.

To Edmonton

Luongo, Edler, Schroeder

To Van

Hall, Gagner, Teubert

They have Yakupov to replace hall and now have a very offensive d and a star goalie. They can give edler the money he wants.

We are

Sedin Sedin Burr
Hall Kesler Hansen
Higgins Gagner Booth
Raymond Lappy Manny

Hamhuis Bieksa
Garrison Tanev
Ballard Corrado
Teubert K Conn


Our back end obviously needs a dman again or one of our prospects to perform only if edler cant be resigned and will sign with edm

Flame away
Come on LU

Our offense doesn't even receive much of an improvement and our backend gets very thin. Teubert can't really skate and his penalty minutes lead me to believe he is either a lazy player (hooking/tripping) or can't control his emotions well and takes dumb penalties.

Luongo will most likely be traded to TOR, FLA or the now rumoured PHI. I for one, would not want to play Edler and Luongo in our own division.
My 2014 Draft wishlist: 1st rd: Draisaitl, Virtanen, Scherbak. 2nd rd: Brendan Lemieux, Thatcher Demko (Goalie)

I wouldn't even want Hall. But I would accept Eberle or the Nuge but the Oilers aren't giving up any of their young players just yet

Doing this trade makes Edmonton so much closer to become a Dynasty. You ever see Hall vs Edler match ups? Every time they match up, Hall has his head down and Edler steps into one and destroys the kid.

Can't imagine Lou willing to go to Edm.
I love rock and roll, just put another dime in the juice box baby.

I don't think Edm goes for this either, who do they replace Gagner with?


Pretty weak C depth even with Gagner and without they look bad.

And terrible value for Canucks doesn't work for either team IMO.

No one is - hence the rebuild. UFAs snubbed them like they were Siberia. Draft picks don't have no trade clauses hahaha...

Hall and Gagner? meh. If the Oil wanted Edler, Eberle is the guy that would make me consider it.

And yeah, I know cfmg - save yourself your auto-post.

General balance of the transaction seems fair, but this proposal does not take into account what the GM wants or the team needs to become successful.

Teubert, at the rate he is going, is not going to make the NHL.

He reminds me of Parent. A Canadian WJ, fairly highly praised, high round pick, fizzled out before ever becoming a regular NHL'er.

I think that this is far too big a deal to make within your division. It could bite either team in the a$$ for years to come. Gillis wouldn't do it.

I don't think Dubnyk is getting the recognition he deserves. Aside from the obvious reasons why this deal wouldn't happen, I think Edmonton has faith in Dubnyk.
