Oilers trade yakupov, third to Chicago for shaw

Hall Nuge Drai
Pou Jesus Ebs
Maroon Shaw Kassian
Hendo Letestu Pak Man

Say what you'd like that's easily one of the best offense in the league and undoubtedly playoff bound if the defense can be shored up using FA or Draftpicks or other LHD.


1.) 23 May 2016 07:43:15
You forgot caggiula, I think he could crack the third line. But maybe Shaw being there then maybe he'll start in the minors, but my main point is that I don't think Yak for Shaw will work.

2.) 23 May 2016 12:14:40
WWhy is Shaw the missing piece? The Oilers are a lot more than Shaw away from the playoffs.

The deal itself is ok, probaly an overpayment from EDM, but CHI says no due to the cap. Yak actually makes more than Shaw.

3.) 23 May 2016 15:52:02
Yak will be making less than the contract shaw receives. And this just takes care of the forwards. I said A LOT of work needs to be done on the D. 2 Top 4 guys need to come in.

4.) 23 May 2016 15:56:14
Best offensive in the league haha your a funny guy.



16 May 2016 22:47:47
Coltie do you live in St. Louis? If you do how does the atmosphere in the arena compare to other arenas you've been to?


1.) 16 May 2016 23:23:11
Never been to St. Louis personally, but i imagine it's just a bunch of Coltie's fighting about how good Parayko is and un-trade able Petro is.

2.) 16 May 2016 23:29:10
It's crazy especially right now. It's bee crazy last 3 years. Dallas is def a calmer experiance. Chicago is extremely expensive. But I have been planning on going to a blues Nashville game but they make it hard to get tickets can't buy them online unless you have credit card from nashville.

3.) 17 May 2016 02:51:12
colt there's a magical thing called stubhub which anyone can use.

4.) 17 May 2016 15:26:20
I think if i'm correct that's what the third party system is. But they don't allow stub hub to sell tickets to certain games till the week of the game. You can't pre order. bUT INSTEAD of getting all smart asssey why don't you look it up.

5.) 17 May 2016 16:04:11
foxsports story from january this year in regards to making it difficult to other teams fans to get tickets to a preds game.

If oilers draft second.

Draft Laine

Yakupov, 32 overall for Andrew Shaw

Fayne (Jon Willis says he's better than Seabrook. I don't think he's that good but he deffinately is a capable NHL d man. ), Everle for Shattenkirk.

Sign Jason demers

Hall Nuge Draisaitl
Maroon Jesus Laine
Pouliot Shaw Kassian
Hendricks Letestu Pakarinen

Klefbom Shattenkirk
Sekera Demers
Davidson Gryba.

This forces nurse, rienhart to compete for a job.


1.) 28 Apr 2016 18:24:06
If you think about it value wise, Oilers are giving way to much value wise for an RFA like Shaw, it's questions he will even resign anyways. Fayne is not better than Seabrook, for Fayne is a top 6 with d-men. Just Eberle won't get you Shattenkirk, but all in all, I like the Demers signing and keeping Gryba instead of Fayne.

2.) 28 Apr 2016 18:24:14
Laine plays LW but shoots right. But I would love this for the Oilers.

3.) 28 Apr 2016 18:34:03
Laine shoots Left moose.

4.) 28 Apr 2016 18:37:29
Wouldn't Schenn be a better signing?

5.) 28 Apr 2016 19:00:52
😂😂😂 Faynes almost as good as Seabrook.

6.) 28 Apr 2016 19:06:34
No Bud, he shoots right.

7.) 28 Apr 2016 19:13:32
No Laine shoots right.

8.) 28 Apr 2016 20:04:35
Thats a negative on shatty trade. Eberle just doesn't do it for us.

9.) 28 Apr 2016 20:05:16
Most likeley if we trade shatty it will be for a great forward (c) prospect and a pick or a really good rw on ELC.

10.) 28 Apr 2016 21:35:42
My bad, was looking at the picture wrong. Never seen him play.

11.) 28 Apr 2016 22:00:35
What's this Jon Willis guy smoking? I'd like some.



07 Mar 2016 02:16:25
2016 first, top three protected, rienhart

For shattenkirk, first.


1.) 07 Mar 2016 04:22:28
So top 3 protected. That doesn't address the biggest issue for us. Need #1center. Those will be gone after top three. We have better dmen prospects on the way up. Don't need reinhart. Sorry does nothing for blues.

2.) 07 Mar 2016 04:29:49
Wow I agree with you Colt. Maybe stl flips the pick for a center man? Just a thought.

3.) 07 Mar 2016 07:23:19
I'm pretty sure anything after top three picks will not be enough for a number 1.

Would you trade the 1st protected g or shattenkirk if he agreed to sign and trade. Say 6×6.

4.) 07 Mar 2016 11:04:24
Getzlaf and Kopitar were takin out side of the top three and well last I checked they were top center men in the league.

5.) 07 Mar 2016 12:33:37
Taresanko was taken in the twenty's it all depends on your scouting staff.

6.) 07 Mar 2016 16:01:58
Colt yes. I would trade a protected first for shattenkirk, maybe a bit more. Would like berglund as 3C but we would have to add for that.

7.) 08 Mar 2016 00:35:55
After the first 3 picks I don't think their is a center till later in the round projected. Tarasenko should gave been top five pick but people were afraid he wouldn't play in america, trAde david rundblad for the 16th over all got the tank.

8.) 08 Mar 2016 06:30:33
Matthews is the only center in the first how many picks? I don't know but the next 3 are suppose to be wingers then some D I think.



03 Mar 2016 17:35:51
Changed a few things

To ARZ: First overall, Rienhart, Fayne
To Edmonton: Arz first (they pick 2016 or 2017), OEL.


1.) 03 Mar 2016 20:15:35
I think they would want to keep one of Reinhart or Fayne, maybe a different prospect/ pick instead.

2.) 03 Mar 2016 20:55:22
What? Fayne isn't a prospect. He's a vet with a bad contract. Fayne also argueably has none to negative value.

3.) 04 Mar 2016 01:46:40
I don't think he meant Faynes a prospect. And Fayne is playing solid hockey after coming back up. A guy making 3.5 million probably shouldn't be sent down though. Lol definitely overplayed but I don't think he has negative value. Then again they may have to retain to trade him.

4.) 04 Mar 2016 15:08:10
@BJ96 I meant in the sense that Edmonton needs some guys like Fayne to be on the team around all their prospects.

And if he has "negative value" why is he going to Arizona in a trade for their best player.

5.) 06 Mar 2016 14:47:47
I think Fayne will look fine once the Edmonton learns how to play team defense (as a #4/ 5 dman) . And besides they have too many lefty defenseman already. They need a #1 right handed defenseman.

Ahaha coltie. Just realized the blues have the second longest finals drought in the league. Too bad they keep that streak going tonight. Let's go hawks.


1.) 26 Apr 2016 01:21:33
Better have finals drought than straight up drought foil.

2.) 26 Apr 2016 02:55:09
Colt that's 2 games straight they have had a great lead to start and then blown it. What does this team need? They have defence and offence as well pretty good goaltending. Is it the coaching or what?

3.) 26 Apr 2016 04:22:46
Thank god they won!

4.) 26 Apr 2016 05:29:34
I know right. Honestly it may be the coach he likes to play defense when we get a lead.



10 Apr 2016 18:10:06
If McDavid and Eichel did not have to play for team North America at the World Cup of hockey, do you think they would be named to Canada/ USA team?


1.) 10 Apr 2016 18:33:00
I think Eichel makes team USA but McDavid would be a close one even though he is a generational talent, kind of similar to when Canada left Stamkos off in 2010.

2.) 11 Apr 2016 03:48:52
You have to take Mcdavid he is the next face of the NHL IMO, I know huge expectations but he had a great year averaging over a PPG as a 18 year old after recovering from a bad injury. I truly believe in 5 years he will be the best player in the NHL. Eichel would be a lock on USA with their weaker offensive core he had a great year too. Just my opinions.

3.) 11 Apr 2016 05:21:09
I don't see how you keep him off. other than Crosby, he is the best offensive player that is Canadian Born IMO. and in a couple years, maybe even next will be the perennial Art Ross winner.

4.) 11 Apr 2016 15:25:17
Both would make it. New faces of the NHL.



14 Mar 2016 17:01:43
100% just curiosity. Tankie/ Coltie. Would you trade the entire St. Louis roster including coaches, GM, scouts, Draft picks and players for the oilers coaches, Gm, Scouts, picks and players. I would not from an oiler standpoint.


1.) 14 Mar 2016 18:57:59
Well on paper I wouldn't from the Oil but one team actually wins games, the other wins lotteries.

2.) 15 Mar 2016 00:28:34
I don't think Tankie knows about this talk page, I only see him commenting on the rumors page.

3.) 15 Mar 2016 09:11:58
Tankie doesn't know about a lot of things.

4.) 15 Mar 2016 12:59:34
I like my team the way it is, Maybe add a young center but very content. They are tied for first points wise in central. which seems to be the toughest division in the League. But Oil your team is not that far away from winning. You finally have a decent GM and Coach. You have the high end talent. Once you get your d squared away, continue to lose the bad eggs and add some size and grit. You guys will be in playoffs maybe as early as next year barring any major injuries.

But no i wouldn't Trade my team roster for yours.

5.) 15 Mar 2016 19:37:56
wHAT NO RHETORIC. no comments attacking me saying i'm stupid come on i guys i expect more out of you especially chirp and shankar and bud.

6.) 15 Mar 2016 23:11:05
Damnit oil, It was nice having Tankie on the rumours page only. This was my only escape, you ruined it!

07 Mar 2016 04:31:16
What is more likely, oil win lottery or Hawks win cup. Both seem to happen more often than not!


1.) 07 Mar 2016 04:49:02
Calling it now, Oilers win lottery and Hawks win the cup, completing the dynasty.

2.) 07 Mar 2016 04:59:08
Dynasty for Hawks or oil 😂.

3.) 07 Mar 2016 05:00:03
I want the oilers to win the lottery more to see the league in outrage than to actually use the pick.

4.) 07 Mar 2016 07:14:36
Even though I'm a Canucks fan and would rather see them with the 1st overall, I would love to see Edmonton win the lottery. For 2 reasons, it'd be very interesting to see what Oilers would do in that situation secondly it'd be hilarious to see everyone complain about it.

5.) 07 Mar 2016 22:03:53
The Leafs will beat the Oilers to 30th but it seems the last place team never wins it. 15' Buff, 14' Buff, 13' FLA, 12' Columbus just to name a few but who knows. I have a feeling an upset will happen with a team 4-8 winning.

6.) 08 Mar 2016 01:35:42
Semi-hoping Calgary wins the lottery. Matthews vs McDavid would really re-ignite the Battle of Alberta for years to come.

Battle to get out of the bottom-5, that is. 😝.

7.) 09 Mar 2016 01:41:51
Calgary just needs one of Puljujarvi or Laine and then they have Monohan/ Gaudreau and Bennet/ Laine or Pulju good young top 6 there. Or Mathews of course would help as well.



02 Mar 2016 16:38:17
To Arizona: 1st overall, Mark Fayne
To Edmonton: Oliver Ekman-Larson, 2nd round pick 2016

To Monteal: 2nd 2016 (ARZ), 2016 fourth round pick
To Edmonton: Lars Eller, 2017 third round pick

2016 lineup

Hall RNH Draisaitl
Yakupov McDavid Eberle
Pouliot Eller Kassian
Hendricks Letestu Maroon

Klefbom OEL
Davidson Sekera
Nurse Rienhart

Laine hasn't proven anything. Hall is the third best LW in the game

How is talbot not a starter? His save percentage this season was top 15. BEHIND THE OILERS DEFENSE.
Sekera Fayne
Rienhart Oesterle
Nurse Pardy

Not an easy defense to play behind.
