Summer moves for the oilers:

Oilers: Lucic (6 m x 4 yrs) + 8th
Rangers: Shattenkirk (6.65 m x 2 yrs) + 20th
(Rangers will have 2 and 8. Pretty good for a rebuilding team)

Oilers: Russell (4 m x 2)
Send: Smith (3.25 m x 2)
(Smith was scratched there. Also, Russel has a 4 m cap, but 1.5 m in real money in last year. Sens would like that)

Oilers: Puljujarvi + 3rd rd pick
Devils: Zacha (Sign him to 3 m x 3)
(Devils have a plethora of centremen with Hughes coming)

Resign: Chaison (2 m x 2)
UFA Signings:
Goalie: Mrazek or Elliot or Smith (2.5 m x 2)
Two forwards: Tanev or Donskoi or Connolly or Juhansson or Panik (each for 3 m x 3)

Drai - McDavid - Kassian (23 m)
Juhansson - RNH - Connolly (12 m)
Smith - Zacha - Chaison (8 m)
Khaira - Cave - Ganger (5 m)
Nygard - Brodziak (2 m)

Klefbom - Larson (8 m)
Nurse - Shattenkirk (8 m)
Sekera - Benning (7.5)
Gravel (0.5 m)

Koskisen - Elliot (7 m)

2 m in buyouts

$83 m line up!

I think pul for Zacha is an even enough trade.

2.) 05 Jun 2019 20:33:57
I like the premise of the Oilers Rangers trade but I think they would need to make the 20th pick a 2nd rd. Lucic is the least desirable contract in the game. 6 mil to sit in the press box.

3.) 05 Jun 2019 21:50:23
Vb back with his lucic hate.

Kesler, neal is worse.

4.) 06 Jun 2019 00:59:27
Kessler is on LTIR And was/ is a much better player and Neal is an NHL player who can put up 20 goals. Lucic is terrible at hockey as a Goalie I’m fully confident I’d be more effective in the NHL as a forward then Lucic I can skate. Lucic just grabs McDavids ankle and McDavid drags him around.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 03:49:00
Must we take the Shattenkirk? He makes more than Lucic, but is so very bad too. We can not afford any more money for bad players. Maybe Rangers can retain? Yes. That is the answer. Rangers can keep some of Shattenkirk’s salary.

Puljujarvi for Zacha sounds good. But I don’t think the Devils make this trade. Big Puljujarvi is much worser. And I do think Devils will just move Zacha to Wing instead.

6.) 06 Jun 2019 06:59:43
#1 Oilers REALLY need #8 pick to get a good forward at ELC value for their cap problems more so than dump their heavy hitter. Dach or Cousins are supposed to be close to going at #8. Can't give that pick away if one of those 2 are there for the taking at #8.
Shatty is a decent dman, but I believe he already put his nose in the air and said nuh uh to going to Edmonton and nixed any deal there.

#2 Sure why not.

#3 Oilers have too many centers as well. I don't think anyone would trade for Puljarrvi until they are comfortable that his double hip surgery allows him to play at an NHL level again. I'm afraid the only way to prove that is to play a full year in Edm. No one would give much of anything for a gamble like that. Maybe a 5th rounder for that gamble.

#4 I'd only give Chaisson a year at 2M or 2 years at 1.5. He's older and slowed down a lot last year. Very smart player. deserves another year for sure. any longer could be trouble as he's right at the end of his career.

Tenders. Any one of them would be a welcomed addition. Not too much term though. Don't forget Oilers have 2 great prospects in the minors. Could be the next Murray or Binnington just waiting to come up.



24 Apr 2019 05:24:44
Oilers: Lucic (6 m x 4 yrs) + 1 st rd
Rangers: Shattenkirk: (6.65 x 2 yrs) Retaining $650,000

Oilers: Puljujarvi
Devils: Zacha

Oilers: Russel (4 m x 2 yrs)
Sens: Z. Smith (3.25 m x 2 yrs)

Oilers: Benning (2 m x 1 yr)
Leafs: Brown (2 m x 1) .
If the leafs were offered Benning (5 goals) + Khaira for Brown (8 goals), then their manager is delusional.

Free Agent: Zuccarelo (5 m x 3 yrs) Or Nyquist
Mrazek (2.5 m x 2 yrs)
Chaison (2 m x 2 yrs)
Zacha (3 m x 3 yrs)
Khaira (1 m x 1 yr)

1.5 m in buyouts

Drai - McDavid- Kassian (23 m)
Zuccarelo - RNH - Brown (13 m)
Smith- Zacha - Chaison (8 m)
Khaira - Cave - Garner (6 m)
Brodziak (1 m)

Klefbom- Larson (8 m)
Nurse - Shattenkirk (9 m)
Sekera - Jones (6 m)
Gravel (1 m)

Koskinen (4.5 m)
Mrazek (2.5 m)


1.) 24 Apr 2019 06:40:45
Brutal for NYR & NJ. Sens trade ain't bad tbh, and Leafs apparently already said no to the Benning for Brown swap

2.) 24 Apr 2019 11:13:30
Zack smith to the oil for a 7th, keep russell.

3.) 24 Apr 2019 13:45:10
I like the Rangers trade.

4.) 24 Apr 2019 16:02:02
Why brutal for Rangers and Devils?

Shattenkirk wasn’t really being played much. Wasn’t he scratched a few times last season. They get a first as well.

Zacha is a third line Centre. With Hughes, Hischier, and zajac as the centres, they could use a winger. Puljujarvi has a chance to be a top 6 goal scorer. Both RFAs as well.

Plus, the trade with Ottawa is one bad contract for another. Not Ottawa off loading smith to the oilers.

5.) 25 Apr 2019 17:41:47
Oh yes Mr. EdmOil. It is so very true. I am not so very smart to make this up, no. I reading a lot of Edmonton and Leafs news so very much. Toronto said no to the offer Benning + either Khaira or Kassian. Edmonton wants Brown very badly to play with Mr McDavid again. But Leafs like Brown so very much too.

6.) 25 Apr 2019 22:42:57
All those trade look realistic.



19 Apr 2019 05:22:59
Crazy trade:

Pens create more cap space this way (almost 5 million) .
Also, Pens haven’t had any 1st round picks in a few seasons and no 1st round this year. Finally, Pens could use some toughness.

Oilers need a goal scorer and 3 line Centre.

Oilers: Lucic + Yamamoto or Puljujarvi + Bear or Jones + 2019 1st round pick

Pens: Kessel + Bjugstad.




02 Apr 2019 04:24:06
A few trades and changes to the oilers that might help! Oilers need to clear cap space.

Oilers: puljujarvi + Lucic (possibly add 3rd round pick or B Prospect)
Sens: Pageau (Sens need to get to the cap + puljujarvi is a good prospect for a rebuilding team. Also, Sens can retain 50% of Lucic’s salary and trade him to a team that needs toughness like Pitts or Canes or other team that need a defender against Tom Wilson)

Oilers: Benning
Leafs: Brown

Oilers: 1st Rd + Russel
Habs: 1st Rd + Shaw (Shaw has one extra season signed to + Oilers 1st is higher most likely)

Oilers: 1st from Habs + Bear
Avs: Barrie

Resign: Chaison 2m x 2 yrs

Sign Free Agent: Carr or Pirri (Vegas)
Mezark or Nilsson

Line Up:
Drai (8.5) - McDavid (12.5) - Kassian (2)
Brown (2) - RNH (6) - Chaison (2)
Ganger (3) - Pageau (3) - Shaw (3)
Khaira (1) - Brodziak (1) - Carr (2)
Cave (700) - Currie (700)

Klefbom (4) - Larson (4)
Nurse (3) - Barrie (5.5)
Sekera (5.5) - Jones (650)
Gravel (700)

Koskinen (4.5)
Mazerk (2)

Shy of $80 m which leaves 3 m room for a trade during season if needed.

Some players here can play up and down the lineup depending on who is hot or not.


1.) 02 Apr 2019 07:26:04
Every trade is good except the colorado one. Colorado isn't in rebuild mode and if they were Barrie would get more

2.) 02 Apr 2019 14:17:26
Tbh it really depends on how high EDM 1st is for MTL to do that trade as Shaw has rebounded and is fitting in nicely and is around a pace of 60 points if he played the whole season. Yes I agree that’s not what’s expected from him but is it unreasonable to expect 40? Plus he plays with grit and heart. While Russel is basically another Alzner. And habs have enough of those 5-7 D don’t need one for 4 mil per year.

3.) 02 Apr 2019 15:19:25
Who is Mazerk? Is that supposed to be Mrazek?

4.) 02 Apr 2019 16:45:39
Not a chance Oil move back in the 1st to go from Russell to Shaw.

5.) 02 Apr 2019 17:39:19
Oilers are not moving their 2019 1st.

6.) 02 Apr 2019 18:42:11
Leafs said no to Brown for Benning + Khaira, so Benning alone does not get Brown, no. Is no good trade.

Why Oiler’s want Barrie? He’s free agent, yes? We must needs just players to stay. No rentals. Can we afford to sign Barrie next year? I dong think so.

7.) 02 Apr 2019 21:44:48
I have a hard time believing the Leafs turned down Benning and Khaira for Brown. Those are two depth guys for the Oilers that actually have value IMO. There both young, physical and inexpensive.

8.) 02 Apr 2019 22:05:19
Bro there is no way Leafs turned down both Khaira and Benning. The actual offer was Brown for Benning, but Toronto was interested in Khaira instead. As per TSN twitter.

9.) 03 Apr 2019 16:24:39
how does that help the oilers you still got bottom 6 players playing on the 2nd line with rnh.

10.) 04 Apr 2019 03:54:25
I did not make this up, no. I am not so smart to make this up. Benning plus Khaira or Kassian. Toronto says no. I read it several times. LWOH.

11.) 05 Apr 2019 16:54:49
I just don’t think there’s anyway they’d say no to Benning and Kassian. Kassian would be awesome for the leafs. Love him as a player.

12.) 05 Apr 2019 22:20:44

They probably would say no, not bc value, but because of cap. If we’re trading Brown, we want next to no salary coming back, not more, even if the value is good.



17 Mar 2019 18:56:50
After watching every injury that Wilson causes and what he has done to the those eastern teams, a guy like Lucic is a good answer to that.

Oilers: Lucic + Puljujärvi
Sens: Pageau

Oilers rid themselves of a bad contract in order to get a top 6 winger. Plus, they get a solid 3C. If oilers need to throw in a 3rd round pick, they should do it.

Sens get Puljujärvi, a strong prospect who just needs a new scenery.

Sens in return take on 50% of Lucic’s cap hit (they need to hit the cap), and then they trade him to an eastern team for a 3rd round or B prospect.


1.) 17 Mar 2019 19:45:55
Oilers add their 1st Lucic is the worst contract in sports history. I challenge someone to name a worse contract. There needs to be a huge incentive to take on Lucic.

2.) 17 Mar 2019 22:38:12
Nah James neals contract is worse now. have about loui Eriksson contract.

3.) 17 Mar 2019 23:43:54
Rick Dipietro @vbbbvvbb

4.) 17 Mar 2019 23:45:39
Challenge accepted. How quickly a leaf fan can forget the David clarkson contract lol. Not to mention Jeff finger and mike komaizerek deals. Also Scott Gomez Ville leino vinny leacaviler Danny heatley bobby holos and rick dipietro all signed deals that were just as bad or worse.

5.) 18 Mar 2019 01:19:11
Rick Dipietro.

6.) 18 Mar 2019 08:00:06
Alexander Daigle.

7.) 18 Mar 2019 09:56:20
No I’d much rather have David Clarkson atleast he could skate. James Neal is way better and Louis Eriksson is actually still serviceable just 3 million overpaid. Di Pietro was only getting paid like 3 mil.

8.) 18 Mar 2019 14:30:27
Diepitro was getting 4.5 in a time when it was the equivalent to probably around 7.5 now and it was for 15 years lol. Also lucic at least is still playing unlike clarkson.

9.) 18 Mar 2019 14:57:50
Vb once you “challenge” something and you are immediately shown up and proven wrong, you can’t go and defend the players that got named.

10.) 18 Mar 2019 15:38:11
Di Pietro was only getting paid 3 million because they where retaining his contract lol.

11.) 18 Mar 2019 17:56:08
Kesler is getting paid I think 6.75M for 22 points combined in the last two seasons.

12.) 19 Mar 2019 12:32:27
Vinnys wasn’t that bad they just had to move on. It was a bit more expensive but he was scoring 20+ goals and 50-60 points a season. Had 10 and 32 in 39 games the year it was bought out. Also having a guy like Lucic to counter Wilson works in theory but not in practice. Wilson refuses to fight to answer for his hits more often then not and if intimidation prevented anything those guys would never have to stand up. The fact they still do means they aren’t preventing anything. Big bad bruins didn’t have enough to prevent Kadri in the playoffs last year, Abdelkader does whatever he wants then hides behind a ref. Lucic ties up cap and a roster space to not be able to play the game and also wouldn’t effectively limit those shots against, he was on the ice in his prime when Matt Cooke ended Marc Savards career with a dirty hit.

13.) 19 Mar 2019 12:33:30
Also I love how for worse contracts we haven’t even had to leave hockey yet, VB said sports history and Pujols and Bonilla haven’t even been brought up yet.

14.) 19 Mar 2019 15:40:44
Yeah baseball would be a whole new level their is probably 30 current contracts that are worse then lucic. I just stuck to hockey cause there are quite a few here that's as bad or worse then lucic.

15.) 19 Mar 2019 20:14:49
everyday i come on this site i just see vb getting dumber and dumber lol, looks like your challenge completely backfired and yet again leaves you looking like a delusional homer as always.

16.) 20 Mar 2019 04:19:32
I’m not sure about that, VB just really doesn’t like Lucic.

17.) 20 Mar 2019 11:38:27
”Neal is way better” still lucic got more points in a bottom team while neal plays for a top team.

18.) 20 Mar 2019 11:55:53
I think we need to see another season of Neal doing this before we can really say. Lucic has been bad for a couple years, this is Neal’s first bad season and could be an aberration.

Far fetched, but is this fair?
Lucic has to agree to this of course and he won’t most likely, but a guy can dream. As long as Lucic is on the team with that cap space, oilers will suffer with their scoring.

Oilers: Lucic + Puljujarvi + 1st rd pk 2019 + 2nd rd pk 2020 + B Prospect like Benson

Sens: Duchene + Stone
Both UFA and probably won’t sign in Ottawa

Oilers sign each to 7 m over 6 years

Oilers: Benning + 4th rd pk
Panthers: Petrovic (UFA)

Petrovic would really help Nurse on the 2n pairing and stabilize things there.


1.) 10 Dec 2018 00:27:09
I think if Ottawa traded them in seperate deals they could do better.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 01:55:30
I think both guys will get more than 7M per . somewhere between 8 and 9 I think.

3.) 10 Dec 2018 02:58:15
I see an offer that would probably be light for duchene and stone alone, let alone adding Lucic’s albatross contract to it.

Thw cost of moving Lucic is probably a first plus. maybe even a first and a second. If that’s the case you’re essentially trading Pool Party and Benson for Stone and Duchene. That’s bad. Like Rambo bad, but flipped to favor the other team and not the Sens.

4.) 10 Dec 2018 03:59:12
Dont ask me why but i feel like stone will sign with ottawa. I would think the oilers would have to give a little more and i agree with habby they would probably be better trading them separately. Duchenne will probably go for crazy money i believe more then 7m for sure.
Still intressting proposal though.

5.) 10 Dec 2018 14:51:01
@isthatright. I have a feeling he will stay too. A few months ago, not a chance. But I’m starting to think he will. However, like you say, it won’t be for $7 mill. With the money being thrown around these days, I think he will get more. His offensive numbers are good, not great but he plays such a complete game, reminds me of a Ryan O’Reilly type player (who has been making $7.5 for years, although a centre) .

Ehlers for Nurse. If not ehlers, could be nylander.

Now, the whole reason I proposed that trade to Ottawa is to create cap space.

Ferland is a UFA. Canes are getting PJ. So spooner is there because they are getting PJ.

They could trade away Talbot. Save on cap.

16 Dec 2018 04:06:46
How do the other teams lose the trades?
1. The Canes get a pretty good prospect in Puljujarvi. He is only 20 years old. If he turns out to be what is expected, the Canes win this trade.
2. As a leafs fan, what would it look like if the leafs wanted Parayko? I mentioned the oilers give up a 1st and 2nd and 2 B prospects. That’s a good return.
3. Flyers need a goalie. Talbot could splice this issue for them.
