Chicago: Kane (50% retained cap) + lafferty

Oilers: Barrie , jesse puljujärvi , Bourgault plus 2023 1st and 3rd round pick


1.) 19 Dec 2022 18:18:37
If chicago retains 50% and takes barrie, its gonna cost more than that. Kane for 1st and second, upper prospect. Retain 50% and take barrie, add another 1st and upper prospect.

2.) 20 Dec 2022 00:10:21
Barrie the D on pace for 65 points has negative value? IMO this package is probably close but if they make this trade I think they need to add a top 4 D as well.

3.) 20 Dec 2022 00:57:57
That’s a really fair package imo



21 Mar 2022 12:31:51
Heard that ducks are listening on offers for Gibson

What about kassian + Smith and Broberg and 2 first ?

Roll with Gibson / Skinner next year


1.) 21 Mar 2022 14:44:55
That’s a big big price to pay but for Gibson I’d do it. Giving up a potential top pairing D though.

2.) 21 Mar 2022 15:13:52
Whatever The Oilers need to do to get Gibson, they should do it. Other than trading the obvious 2.

3.) 22 Mar 2022 20:11:00
@Ebsolutely You'd give up 2 firsts for Gibson?

Those firsts are likely to be near the middle of the draft. Mike Smith is washed up but Kassian might actually become a useful player with a coach who knows how to keep guys like him in line.

4.) 23 Mar 2022 01:44:45
This might be my rose coloured glasses but with Gibson the Oilers would be making deep runs. It would be losing Broberg that would hurt the most. They need him to be a big part of there top 4 soon. I also think if they had Gibson there would be no excuse to trade for a Chariot or a Lindholm to solidify there D.

Oilers: 1st round pick , konovalov

Blues: Husso (sign and trade)

Trade Koskinen to a bottom team for picks

And buyout Smith next year


1.) 26 Feb 2022 15:56:32
Why would a bottom team pay picks for a poor goalie on an expiring contract?!

EDM would have to be the one including picks to move Koskinens money out. Teams at the bottom, who are not playoff bound, already have their own goaltenders who haven’t made enough saves for them. Why would they give you assets to take another one AND pay his salary? Lol come on.

2.) 27 Feb 2022 09:07:53
Ofc oilers add picks.

Something like Koskinen plus a second and get a 5th in return.



19 Feb 2022 14:37:59
Oilers: Koskinen , Yamamoto , second round pick + maybe a prospect

Islanders: Varlamov + mayfield


1.) 19 Feb 2022 16:15:45
Varlamov >> Koskinen
Mayfield >> Yamamoto

It'll take more than a second to make up the difference. Adding a prospect won't make any difference unless it's a good one.

2.) 19 Feb 2022 17:23:10
I think Koskinen + a 2nd for Varlomov is realistic. NYI do this to clear $5mil in Cap Space for the 22-23 Season.

@MoxNix is right that Mayfield isn't a player NYI likely wants to Trade and he'll be in high demand if they do, so it'll have to be an over pay for him.

Looking at needs: NYI are lacking in G, RD and Right Shot Prospects and will need to replace Chara and Greene if/ once they are Traded, Retire or Walk via Free Agency. They would also need to replace Mayfield at RD (they do have Greene and 2 AHL'ers) .

They probably ask for Bouchard (which won't happen) and likely won't want Barrie or Ceci, so Oilers could send a haul of Prospects instead like Lagesson or Niemelainen + Dmitri Samrukov + Ilya Konovalov + Cooper Marody FOR Scott Mayfield either 50% Retained OR if they won't retain, they take Kyle Turris back instead to make the $$$ work.

3.) 20 Feb 2022 01:57:59
Why wouldn’t the islanders want Ceci? He’s been a good signing for the Oil. They wouldn’t trade him for Mayfield. Varlamov would be a good option but maybe they try to go younger? Also could they do better for 5M?

4.) 20 Feb 2022 17:05:55
Because NYI already has Pulock and Dobson, so should go with a cheaper option OR bring up Bolde Wilde for the #3RD position. EDM keeps Ceci who has been okay (like Justin Holl) but was signed for too much IMO

Unless they can pry John Gibson away from ANA, I think Varlomov is the best available option and comes on a short term contract = isn't a rental. Driedger, Mrazek and Matt Murray would be risky. Alternatively they pursue cheaper options like Holtby or Allen or if WASH Trades for a Goalie they could go after Young G's Samsonov or Vanecek or wait till the off-season to Offer Sheet them or any other U/ RFA G.

5.) 20 Feb 2022 18:00:14
Ceci has been at least worth his 3.25M this year. I could understand why they’d want to go cheaper but with him having term they’d solidify a good fairly cheap right side. I think your right about all the goalie stuff I just hope they can put 5M to better use. I don’t know I’m finally hoping they’ll blow oil fans away with a goalie solution.

6.) 20 Feb 2022 22:46:38
3.25mil is better than the $4.3-$4.5mil Ceci was making a few years ago, but last Season PITT signed him for only $1.25mil, so I feel $2.5-2.8mil would have been more appropriate. Sure he’s only making another $425-750k more this season but in the World of Salary Caps, every single dollar counts.

Oilers: 1st round 2021 , Jones , kassian/russel (matberedare

Anaheim: Rakell


1.) 12 Apr 2021 23:36:17
As a Flames fan I'd love to see the oilers do that. But even oil fans have to realize Rakell isn't worth that much.

Why doesn't any team sign Tye felhaber?

I don't watch ohl but he's stats looks good?


1.) 09 Feb 2019 15:23:26
I thought dallas did.

2.) 09 Feb 2019 15:25:01
Overagers always put up good stats, it’s what they do in the previous draft years that’s telling. He will probably be signed a bit later, I feel undrafted signings take place a bit later than this in the season most times. A quick google has him linked to the Stars.

JT to Leafs Done deal




21 May 2018 00:18:02
After seeing Larsson and oel play together oilers must see the value?

Offer klefbom or nurse and 1st pick plus a young forward yamamoto or benson..

May be much to pay but oel and Larsson has chemistry and Will be a top pair D in nhl

How is that a overpay ? haha a 1st round pick and a prospect and capdump isn't enough

Will cost alot more than that at the deadline.

Why would oilers trade barrie that still holds value and pulju that was a 1st line player this year for 2 capdumps? Brown is Ahl player. Benson 2.0.
