Wanted by Edmonton Oilers: tough, mean third-pairing defenceman, possibly Deryk Engelland:

The Edmonton Oilers are looking for a third pairing defenceman with some muscle and/or meanness.


They had Mark Fistric and Theo Peckham last year but didn’t like either enough to resign them, although they miss Fistric’s hitting ability.


Fistric is now with the Anaheim Ducks; Peckham now plays for the Rockford IceHogs, the Chicago Blackhawks’ AHL farm team.


Pittsburgh Penguins defencemaman Deryk Engelland’s name keeps coming up as a possibility in a trade, if not to Edmonton, somewhere else.


He’s certainly tough and he was born in Edmonton

Could see Mtl as good trading partners if Yakupov wants out. Reunite him with Galchenyuk and get a package including Tinordi coming back.

perfect time for canucks and oilers to make a big trade.

canucks should tarrget hall, yakupov or any young players.
they should send vets in return and start the rebuilding mode.

example. send hamhuis .. sedins (barring NTC) for youth.
Gillis should be looking at oilers, who are motivated right now.
plus they could use more veterans with their youth core.

The Oilers need a top 4 dman that's actually capable of playing defense. So far the oilers have been a soft team that give up soft goals. Adding a tough dman is fine but it won't come close to ending their worries.

You're trying to say that Yakupov, who's been a healthy scratch due to laziness, is motivated?

If I were the Oilers GM I'd be going hard after guys like Hamonic, Gudbranson, Tinordi, and Cowen. Flip Yakupov before he becomes a huge issue in the dressing room.

Gillis has avoided russians [for whatever reason]
but this yakupov could thrive with a certain type of coach / & team.

canucks used to get these types off players (at least quinn did) for example lumme , diduck etc.
who didn't fit in elsewhere and turned them into very solid players. .

If Yakupov can't handle being benched by Eakins he'd hate Tortorella.

if oilers gave hall, they''d want the sedins probably.
but hank n dan have the NTC. still they are UFAs next year.
a deal would work for both sides. gillis doesn't like over 35 players.
it appears. so who knows.

gillis will need to solve the sedin UFA status ...
and will be relucatant to sign them long term.
[since theyre over his ideal age range]
hence a waive the NTC trade possibility.

put music to this and its a song.

Exactly add someone who can bring more than just being tough to the table.

Sedins aren't going anywhere and certainly aren't being traded within the division.

Hamhuis & Booth for Yakupov!

BOOM!


Hamhuis doesn't provide 50 point offense that Edler does but is looked at as 'more dependable'
Edler looks like a changed man playing under Torts.. hiitting everything in sight

Anaheim? St.Louis? Jackman or Bryan Allen seem to be that tough type of defensemens. Petry and a 3rd for Jackman but Allen would be pretty cheap.

We aren't trading with them, we don't have anyone of that calibre really.

Hamhuis took less to come here and didn't sign for either PIttsburgh or Philly despite both teams trading for his rights. He won't waive his NTC to go to Edmonton.
