TO L.A-Laine
TO WPG-Doughty
Jets get a top pair defenceman to replace buff(if he retires) and doughty gets a chance to win a cup
LA gets a young sniper and Laine gets a chance to play top line minutes.


1.) 07 Oct 2019 21:39:14
Lol. Not even in a Kings fan's wildest dreams. Doughty is great and all, but he's 29 and is being paid $11 million/ season until he is 36. Plus the Jets just extended Laine, they won't trade him in a knee jerk, panic trade as you are proposing.

2.) 07 Oct 2019 21:49:16
Doughty say no.

3.) 07 Oct 2019 22:50:16
As much as I like Doughty, he will be long retired, over the hill, while Laine will be scoring 50, flirting with 60 for years to come.

Laine had a rough 2nd half last year, so many are questioning him.
I will guarantee he will score the most Goals of anyone on his draft class. I'm not saying points, or that he will be the best player, but as a goal scorer, he will be # 1.

4.) 08 Oct 2019 01:57:45
Pulock is not far from Laine for worth.

5.) 08 Oct 2019 02:56:00
Sosa he could but I wouldn’t be willing to guarantee it with him currently being 2nd to Matthews. Definitely could but He’s not blowing Matthews outta the water.

6.) 08 Oct 2019 14:52:40
Laine is 22 and Doughty is like 35 that’s a huge no from Winnipeg.

7.) 08 Oct 2019 17:36:51
Doughty is like same age as pietrangelo and stamkos.08 draft

older but not old.

8.) 09 Oct 2019 22:23:13
Agree with jbs, sosa. In most draft classes laine could run away with it, but him and matthews will probably always be close.

To EDM- Frolik
To CAL- russel, 2020 3rd
Both on expiring contracts, helps Calgary now that valamaki is out and gives the oilers another winger that can score


1.) 14 Aug 2019 04:16:44
Flames need Frolik way more than russell and why would they trade for a 6 dman at a 4mil cap hit next season. Flames are fine, they have Kylington or Valiev who can take up that spot

2.) 14 Aug 2019 06:28:03
Yeah, Flames got the depth to fill up that whole.
No need to trade anybody. and there are fine replacements in free agency if they decide they need one.

3.) 14 Aug 2019 13:54:10
hole*** :3.

4.) 14 Aug 2019 15:46:05
I’m pretty sure I read a quote from there GM that there looking externally for a replacement. Frolik is no steal of a contract either at 4.3M. Russell is probably a 5/ 6 D and Frolik is a 3rd line winger. Oil might have to add a tiny bit on this IMO.

5.) 14 Aug 2019 19:47:06
But froliks a ufa next season russell aint

6.) 14 Aug 2019 20:17:19
Also, don't see Oilers trading defencemen right now. They need all the experience they can get. and although Russell gets hated on, Edmonton doesn't have anybody in the lineup that can block shots like him.

I think Oilers are done with trades unless it's Puljujarvi.
If they need a forward, they'll sign one in free agency.

7.) 15 Aug 2019 17:52:15
Losing Russells cap alone would be enough benefit for the Oilers IMO. Jones, Benning and Persson can potentially take up the bottom half of the D core. I think a trade that upgrades the RD is what the Oil should be looking at.

8.) 16 Aug 2019 04:14:32
@ebs I agree. Risto would be a good fit for the oilers imo.

9.) 18 Aug 2019 02:23:34
Lol buddy edmonton traded their 2020 third, conditionally, to calgary in the lucic deal. How would it work to trade it to them again?

No deal both sides.



05 May 2019 20:55:21
Let the holland era begin
To van: Milan lucic(33% retained)
To EDM: Brandon sutter

To wpg RNH, Jesse p, 2019 1st
To EDM Jacob trouba (agreement to sign), Kyle Conor

To tor Adam Larson, kharia
To EDM kasperi kappanen

To NYR Matt Benning, 2020 2nd
To EDM namestinkov


1.) 05 May 2019 22:36:42
There is no reason for Winnipeg to do this lopsided trade.

2.) 05 May 2019 22:49:17
No thanks from Winnipeg.

3.) 05 May 2019 23:18:08
Sorry got Conor and Ehlers mixed up. Swap the two.

4.) 05 May 2019 23:41:29
Very good. I love these trades. ❤️ Who could not, yes? We must make every one of these trades. And then Edmonton will win the cup, yes. I am sure of it. The other teams must understand. They suck compared to the great Edmonton Oilers. For we are the best. Yes. It is so very true. Mr. Weasel understands very good, yes. I like this trade very much. It is very good trade. Very good.

5.) 05 May 2019 23:50:52
Wtf are you on? Namestnikov gets more, Trouba & Connor get more. For the other idk

6.) 06 May 2019 02:24:31
Yeah that’s a fat no from Van. You want us to take a Lucic? You retain half his salary and you take Eriksson. Lucic is so far in the negative value that it’s not funny.

7.) 06 May 2019 04:32:35
Lol because Eriksson is so much better.

8.) 06 May 2019 08:11:49
I would rather keep lucic than have Eriksson.
Both players are 4th line players and atleast lucic donat play like a girl

Why would oilers retain cap? Lucic is younger and can bounce back in another team? Eriksson is worse.

9.) 06 May 2019 08:18:15
Is everyone high? RnH and trouba = same value and ehlers won't get you both jesse and 1st round pick (krebs/ dach)

10.) 07 May 2019 07:02:15
Lucid has a NVM, so Canucks couldn't send him to minors, plus he has to be protected in the expansion draft, good luck moving that guy.

11.) 07 May 2019 16:21:21
lucic will easily waive his nmc he is obviously not going to be picked up by seattle give me a break lol.

12.) 07 May 2019 21:13:01
is trouba that big of an upgrade to get rid of larsson after?

13.) 08 May 2019 13:17:01
big no not fair enough trade.



19 Apr 2019 05:55:02
I think this might be fair
To Pit- kailer Yamamoto, 2019 1st, 2020 2nd, Milan lucic
To EDM - Phil kessel
No retention, pits sheds 750,000 cap roughly gets a pick In the first round which they don't have and lucic who could protect Crosby etc.
Maybe I'm way off but I think it works


1.) 19 Apr 2019 06:11:16
You’re way off lol.

2.) 19 Apr 2019 16:12:59
Basically Yamamoto for kessel? Cause the draft picks would be for taking lucic. And pens would be looking for cap space, not taking on an anchor contract. Sorry, not well thought out at all.

3.) 19 Apr 2019 21:00:56
Pittsburgh has a 1st round pick?

4.) 21 Apr 2019 02:00:16
For Edmonton they are in a rebuild even though they have 2 of the Top forwards in the NHL.
Kessel is not a good move where they are at, I would Trade McDavid to start the rebuild properly, they need a lot and the only way to do that without wasting McDavids years is to Trade McDavid and they would get a ton for him.



14 Feb 2019 23:44:49
To EDM- Cam Talbot, RNH, Yamamoto, 2019 1st
To PHI- Ghost, Couturier, Simmonds
Sounds like Talbot has a real possibility of going to philly reguardless, because he has a relationship with carter hart and would be a good mentor. I feel like value is there. Maybe make a condition on the pick of simmonds resigns.


1.) 15 Feb 2019 02:05:25
Way to much from philly. Take out couturier and yamamoto and i say its a deal.

2.) 15 Feb 2019 03:50:35
I’d absolutely say no to that deal if couturier isn’t included.

3.) 15 Feb 2019 03:52:01
Oilers don’t need an aging Simmonds tbh (I mean we could certainly use him lol but not worth it at his age and decline happening already) but if Ghost/ provorov and couturier are there it’s really interesting.

4.) 15 Feb 2019 16:28:33
If Simmonds is worth at least the 1st, then the rest of that package doesn’t come anywhere close to getting Couturier and Ghost. Not even close.

5.) 16 Feb 2019 08:48:10
Flyers would not include Simmonds. They should take advantage of Edmontons cap woes. Take on Lucic's contract (buy him out or test for one seadon) and ask for Pulijarvi or yamamato to be included in any Talbot trade. Here is what i propose:

Philly gets Talbot, Lucic, Yamamoto

Edmonton gets Elliott and much coveted cap space. The cost of digging out of the cap mess.

12 Feb 2019 11:35:24
Not a rumour just wondering if anybody thinks that it is a good trade and makes sense for both teams. Forget the cap as well...
To EDM- Jonathan huberdeau, Aaron Ekblad
To FLA- Oscar Klefbom, Cam Talbot, Kyler Yamamoto, Evan Bouchard, 2019 2nd round pick
Who adds and how much. Don't just say "it will Never happen"


1.) 12 Feb 2019 15:25:41
Oilers add a lot. Talbot is barely a starter by the looks of it. Moto is a good prospect, bouchard is not much and Klefblom is your big piece in all of this. I don't think this is really a starting point for a trade - maybe Drais gets a convo going.

2.) 12 Feb 2019 17:57:34
Bouchard, our best prospect and former 10th overall pick is “not much”? Also Draisaitl is doing better than Ekblad, how does that work when you say it just keeps the convo going? 🤔.

3.) 12 Feb 2019 19:14:42
Ya Bouchard is a top prospect, Moto is a decent prospect. I still think EDM would have to add, but I don’t know how much.

4.) 12 Feb 2019 20:13:47
How is Bouchard not a top prospect? Turkey, I think this may be only time I have ever disagreed with ya lol. I'm not a huge fan of Yamamoto. I jus don't see it. him being a consistent NHLer. he's someone Oil should move.
I'd hate to see Drais leave Oil, as he is a Star player and I like his overall game. however, he is going to have to be the peice Oilers move to improve this team. Its unfortunate, but in order to fix the mess of Chiarelli, Drais will have to be sacrificed.
Talbot doesn't hold any value. Klefbom is ok, however, I am always left feeling he can/ should do more? .

5.) 12 Feb 2019 21:16:25
Edmonton adds and they can't afford those two contracts anyway. So it will never happen lol.



06 Jul 2017 12:07:52
Just thinking out loud here
The Conor McDavid contract is worth every penny and he even took a bit of a discount, but it is a massive cap hit. If the draisitl contract requests are correct and he wants 8-9 might it be worth exploring a trade...
To EDM- Mackinon
To COL- Draisitil
Draisitl is the better all around player imo and is younger, him and landeskog would be a force on the top line. Mackinon is a better center, and adds dynamic speed at a possible cheaper price.


1.) 06 Jul 2017 14:00:38
Nope. Crosby/ Malkin works (clearly), McD/ Drai can work too.

2.) 06 Jul 2017 14:53:04
Crosby/ Malkin. Signed while the cap was rising. I think the cap hits are 8.7/ 9.5 so that's 18.2.

Mcdavid/ draisatl
Cap looks flat 12.5/ 7-9
So 19.5-21.5 maybe a bit more. That's 3.3-5.3 more. That's a good player tied up right there.

3.) 06 Jul 2017 17:11:56
Wow my math was really bad there 1.3-3.3. So not as good a player.



19 Mar 2016 13:00:19
IMO Taylor hall is the most likely to get traded, he hasn't played that well with mcdavid (small sample size) he's been there the longest and never took control of the team and with all the centres the oilers have they actually become pretty weak up the middle of they trade RNH. So
To San Jose-Taylor hall, yak, 2017 2nd
To EDM- Brent Burns 2016 1st.


1.) 19 Mar 2016 13:26:00
Sharks don't have a first this year. And Edmonton would probably consider this only if Burns was signed to an extension. He probably will over the summer, and this could be an offseason move if the Sharks wanted to get younger (again) .

San Jose has to resign Thornton, Marleau and Burns next year. Obviously Marleau would be the first to go, but you also can think about how Burns' value will never be higher.

2.) 19 Mar 2016 14:56:49
Why does he have to play well with McDavid? He's been doing just fine with Draisaitl. Weak up the middle? They could use a 3rd line center and then they have pretty solid center depth. Also Hall > Burns.

3.) 19 Mar 2016 17:14:25
Hall is most likely to be traded? Are you ok in the head?
Check again.

4.) 19 Mar 2016 20:50:26
I can't see the Oilers trading Hall. and why does he have to play with McDavid.? . Having to send guys on different lines is going to be a nightmare for opposing teams for years to come . in my opinion, RNH and Yakupov are the assets the Oilers should move 2 get a more balanced team. if. Yakupov is still considered an asset? He's still young enough to turn it around imo.

5.) 19 Mar 2016 23:12:45
Yeah RNH and Yak need to get moved. Not Hall.

RNH could land a top 4 RHD that the Oilers desperately need.

While Yak could land them a great 3rd line centre which is something the Oilers need instead of damn Anton Lander.

6.) 19 Mar 2016 23:12:45

7.) 20 Mar 2016 03:00:55

8.) 20 Mar 2016 09:41:24
Oilers need a top-2 dman to join Klefbom (currently injured), though Sekera has been very good recently. But that's cloud talk, they still need a top-2. They have a plethora of bottom-4.

Also, Lander isn't #3C. Letestu is, and has been great. #4C is a rotating door and sometimes includes Lander. He's got his merits but hasn't translated his excellence in the AHL to the NHL, unfortunately. But they may not need a new one in trade anyway now that Yakimov has returned to North America. He'll get a good long look in the off-season.

9.) 20 Mar 2016 21:10:25
I personally think the Hendricks- Letestu duo should stay together on the 4th line. I think Letestu and Sekera are equally mediocre in there respected positions. Upgrade on the 3rd line center and I like Pak he should stick on the 3rd next season.

10.) 20 Mar 2016 23:25:33
@Chirp are there any top 2 defensemen available? Nope. They've got to get the best d-men on the trading block available. This is one of the reasons why the Oilers franchise has gone NOWHERE in the last decade. Because they keep trying to obtain unrealistic wants that definitely are not out there. They keep putting off getting players that can help because they wait for this magical top pairing d-man to be available. Maybe if they got an actual top 4 d-man to come in and play with Klefbom/ Nurse then maybe they could help solidify a soid top 4 along with Sekera. Then u got guys like Davidson, Gryba, etc playing solidly on the bottom pairings.

11.) 21 Mar 2016 02:42:28
How about Reinhart? I don't think they've been waiting for the perfect guy. They've had garbage goaltending for the longest time. There D is finally starting to get good again IMO.
