I think this trade benefits both teams. Oilers need depth for the playoffs and a LW for Drai, but they don’t have cap space. This trade should help. Sens are in a rebuild and 1st round pick would be good.

Oilers: 1 st round pick + Neal ($5.75 x 2 after this) . Maybe Oilers need to add a B prospect.

Sens: Dzingle ($3.375 RFA) + Gudbranson ($4 UFA) and Sens retain $1 m from each player.

If Dzingle works out in top 6, they resign him. If not, Oilers have cap space in off season to sign a top 6 LW.


1.) 26 Mar 2021 04:01:27
Ok this is very interesting. I don’t think Edmonton adding a 1st is necessary. I can see a 2nd round pick being added tho

James Neal, 2nd and Bear for Dzingel and Gudbranson would be my counter.

2.) 26 Mar 2021 09:14:15
I can't see any reason the Sens would even think about doing this. Nobody wants Neal, the Oilers are going to have pay if they want to dump him.

3.) 26 Mar 2021 10:32:55
This trade would bankrupt Melink lol he made trades to save 30k in real dollars. If you live in Ottawa you can regularly see him bumming for change outside the south side Tim Hortons.

4.) 26 Mar 2021 13:27:53
Honestly I don’t think Sens should make mistake of moving Dzingel again. He’s insane for them, but I do like his fit in Edmonton simply because he’ll put up points on a line with either McDavid or Drai. Gudbranson is trash and Neal is trash but Neal makes more and is signed longer, so Edmonton would need to add likely a second there. So really it would come down to what Dzingel is worth, which is probably a first.
Overall not a bad trade.

5.) 06 Apr 2021 22:57:56
I would do it if it were a 2022 or 2023 1st but not if 2021. That would be a guarenteed late round 1st in a weak draft class. Basically a late 2nd in a normal year. I'd sooner take my chances on a random pick in 1 of next 2 years as there is more to be desired even late in those 1st rounds. Taking Neal should cost Edmonton more than a weak late 1st imo.



20 Mar 2021 17:50:33
Oilers: Kassian (3 x $3.2 m) + Jones (1 x $875 RFA) + 4th rd pk 2022

Bruins: Debrusk (1 x $3.65 m RFA)

Bruins could use Jones as there are a few injuries on the blue line and Kaddish would be a good fit for them.

Debrusk would fit the Oilers now with his age and him being a LW.


1.) 20 Mar 2021 18:14:40
Not a bad trade. As much of an upgrade Debrusk is over Kassian, I’d rather see Edm keep him as he is a culture piece. He’s gritty and sticks up for McDavid and Drai (which is kinda the most important thing for Oilers) .

2.) 21 Mar 2021 00:06:19
I know kassian is just in there for the cap, but as webs said, he's useful to mcdavid and draisaitl. Him being on the bench stops a bit of bs.



20 Mar 2021 17:47:11
A few Oiler trades:

Oilers: Neal (2 x $5.75 m) + 1st Rd Pk 2022
Ottawa: Watson (2 x $1.5 m) + Gudbranson (UFA at 4 m)

Oilers: Kassian (3 x $3.2 m) + Jones (1 x $875 RFA)


1.) 21 Mar 2021 00:09:53
Better to keep the 2022 pick i think. I don't think anyone is expecting an Oilers run, and Watson isn't the missing piece. Next year they have klefbom back, and neal is easier to move at 1yr. Plus I think neal will help with playoffs this year.

2.) 21 Mar 2021 04:13:56
Neal has 2 years after this season at $5.75.
With the flat cap, that money in the off-season could get you a great and impact player. A 1st run pick player in 2022 won’t be ready to play at least till 2024 or 2025.
Plus, there is something wrong with Neal. Since he got c.v., he isn’t the same player from last year.

Watson on like with Khaira and Kassian would be a scary 3rd line. Gus arson is a UFA after this season and would be good 3rd pairing and a physical presence.

3.) 21 Mar 2021 16:48:35
A first round pick is prolly the going rate to get off of Neals contract. Ottawa is a good trade partner, but for some reason they like Gud. I could see a trade like this being done in the offseason where Ottawa just takes a first and Neal similar to the Marleau trade.

4.) 24 Mar 2021 11:21:44
I'd be ok with this. But curious what the 2nd trade is? It looks like it was cut off lol



22 Feb 2021 18:22:13
Oilers: Neal ($5.75 m x2) + Turris ($1.65 m x2)
Ducks: Henrique ($5.85 m x3)

Oilers get a 3rd line Center that they desperately need.
Ducks get a power play winger who could be on the top unit + Turris might be able to get his career on track there with little media and spotlight.

Ducks take on bigger money for the 2 seasons, but oilers take on 1 extra season of Henrique.


1.) 22 Feb 2021 21:08:10
I don't mind it, although the extra year may be pretty detrimental in a flat-cap world. Still, I think Henrique is a better option than either of Neal and Turris, so I think the swap would be worth it for Edmonton's depth.

2.) 22 Feb 2021 23:58:17
Ya, this isn't to bad. but like TSS said, that extra year may be hard for Oilers. Ducks add a 4th due to extra year.

3.) 23 Feb 2021 00:39:08
The extra year may not be as bad as proposed so long as they are good for those first 2 years.

Then they could always move Henrique as a rental for a return to escape it.

4.) 23 Feb 2021 01:41:13
I like Neal in the bottom 6 for like 5M less though. Lol I’d rather keep his 2 years than Henriques 3 personally. Khaira and Haas are actually playing pretty well so not sure if he’s even much of an upgrade.



31 Jan 2021 21:28:36
What about this trade?
Oilers: Puljujarvi (2 x $1.5m)
Flames: Bennet (1 x $2.5m)
Both will be RFAs.
Oilers could use a third line center like Bennet. Puljujarvi would look good by Backland on the 3rd line.


1.) 31 Jan 2021 21:56:59
Bennett wants more ice time and I think Edmonton would play him 2RW. But what if Puljujarvi turns into a solid player and same for Bennett? I don’t think it’s a risk that these rivals are willing to take

2.) 31 Jan 2021 22:03:54
This seems like a fair trade for both teams as long as both Bennett and Pully excepts a bottom 6 role.

3.) 01 Feb 2021 01:57:59
I don’t think Edmonton is ready to move on from Puljujarvi but I think this is a decent trade. Puljujarvi has a lot higher potential but a lower basement IMO. I don’t think Puljujarvi has proven it yet but I’d hope for a small throw in with Bennet.

4.) 01 Feb 2021 05:52:06
The Flames might consider it since RW is their weakest position. But they aren't in any rush to trade Bennett either.

It'd be extremely difficult for the two teams to justify the trade to their fans. If the player traded away becomes a good player for the other team and the player obtained doesn't, the GM might not survive the backlash.

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) .

Now, some of you are forgetting the fact that we are in the era of C.V.. No player is getting want they want on the open market. Look at the many examples: Hall, Toffoli, Barrie. Offering Saad $4m to $4.5 m for 2 years is reasonable because after this signing he is young enough to sign another one.
RNH will not get more than $6.5m to $7m. I doubt that.
Now, offering Seattle Klefbom, a #2 defenceman at the price of $4m is pretty enticing. My comment also said if he is healthy! Neal would have 2 years left only. He would be good in the locker room and on the PP.

I like Bonino as 3rd line centreman for the oilers. Right handed and kills penalties.
Turris could find a place for him on the oilers and get back to his old self and be that long term solution as the 3rd line centreman.
Preds could use Russell on the 3rd pairing. Neal could help them on the power play.
I think both Teams benefit here.
