Oilers- nugent-Hopkins+ Nurse
Carolina- Faulk+ maybe a 3rd

The oilers are going to have to resign nurse this year and I heard he wants 3 million plus, which with oilers cap crunch would be tough. Plus the oilers have a ton of left handed d prospects to take his place. For Carolina they get a 2nd line center and a prospect with tons of potential to add to their already stacked blue line.

Oilers say no. They will be able to resign him, no worries.
I would have maybe been intersted in a trade like this for Faulk before they resigned Russell for so long.
They will be running with what they got for 2/ 3 years now until they teade Russell or Sekera waives his no trade. But then Bear will likely be ready by that time to step in.
They will be able to trade Nuge without having to add in Nurse.

Although faulk could be the top RHD edmonton is missing, I can't imagine the oil fans taking like to any trade involving nurse. also, with slavin, pesce, hanifin in the line up and 2 other solid D prospects in fleury and bean, is nurse even a player the hurricanes would covet?

Nurse is just a prospect?
No from Oilers. Only good thing of this is saving cap and getting a RHD.
Don't get me wrong I'm a huge fan of Faulk but that's way too much coming from Oilers come on now.

A number 1 def for a third line center and a bottom pairing def? Plus have the Canes take on cap? No from the Canes.

How is Faulk a #1? Doughty, karlson, Keith. these are #1s.
Plus, RNH is better than any centreman canes have now. He is a solid #2 centreman. Not a 3rd.
Also, I'm sure nurse isn't a bottom pairing.

Lightening, ya just have to excuse Borje there. He's just a broken record Oiler hater.

Oiler hater or not, pay attention to what their over priced guys have been getting. Nuge didn't Produce at all in the playoffs, despite multiple pp opportunities and playing against other teams third lines. At $6million, you can't expect a top return. Eberle got you a guy who is as much of a suspect as a prospect. Nurse, is a physical specimen but his decision making and hockey iq seem to be quite limited as even maclellen has acknowledged. Plus, the Canes have many superior young def. Faulk is a first pairing def on most teams and a pp quarterback. Oilers would do well making this trade.

Lightening, if you check the depth chart, you will see the Canes have two centres who produced better than Nuge and have more in their prospect pool.

RNH had more goals than any centreman on the canes.

Nuge had less points than 3 Canes centres and two of them are younger. All are bigger.

Told ya.
No, Oilers would not do well making this trade.

Just worry about your Flames buddy.

Don't usually, but I partially agree with borje here. RNH is a great 3rd line centre, but could play top 6 in the right situation. Nurse has had so many up and down moments already (which is expected of a young Dman) that he's a real question mark, and Faulk is immediately the best Dman on a number of NHL teams, and slots in at second best on the teams with karlsson, burns, kieth, doughty, weber etc. And he's just one of the guys on Nashville and Anaheim.

Nuge is absolutely not a third line centre.

127th highest scoring forward in the league! Nuge is a third line center and a very soft and expensive one at that.

I agree with ebsolutely, RNH could be a number one center on a lot of teams out there. the oil are only looking to trade him because of cap issues, I think 6 million is actually fair for what he brings to the table.

Duchene must be a third liner too? And I think RNH is slightly overpaid.

Nuge should be $5-5.5M per not $6M. Signing Hall, Nuge, Ebs to the exact same thing was the old dumb management which I'm so glad is gone.
Nuge is not a third line center. He's a solid second line center, Some would even use him as a number one on their teams.
