    From the earlier thread:

    No way should McLeod be above 4th line time. At least not with his new PK duties. His play might suit a stayinfrontofothergoalie-playstyle, but putting him with Mack would ruin Mack's offensive game.

    If we trade Staz and don't get a winger back in the trade we should either call up Sgarby from LEM or then trade for another winger for cheap on the market.
    I want no McLeod with Mack.

    This does bring up the idea of how Roy will handle injuries to the forwards when they do come up.

    Although the team is deep, I'm not sure it is deep enough yet with enough skill to run the 3 line system if a couple of the top 9 forwards are out at the same time.

    Wonder if he'll go to more of a traditional top 6-bottom 6 approach.

    Injury 1: Mitchell moves up, Cliche slots onto the 4th line.

    Injury 2: Malone called up, Cliche to 4th line LW, McLeod up to 3rd line LW.

    Injury 3(scoring): The Boss is called up to a scoring line, 4th line stays Cliche-Malone-Bordeleau.

    I think we could survive with up to three injuries on forward, given our depth options and the versatility of several players such as our centers.

    If we do trade Stastny, I'd love to get our hands on Helm to be our 3C.

    Has Helm even started playing again? I know some red wings fans I know where worrying about if he'd ever even be a useful player again.

    OTT puts Stephane Da Costa on waivers.

    There is a tempting player, maybe not for the Avs with our depth, but somebody might take a chance. Da Costa has been a disappointment so far, but on a weaker top 6 I think he could find a spot on RW and develop into a decent player.

    Nothing like a 5'10", 180 pound useless forward with 7 career points... yeah, no thanks. He's terrible. Dime-a-dozen player.

    I mean for almost any team. There are unsigned players with more potential and more attractive traits (size, for one) than Da Costa. This is the typical player that floats around for a couple of seasons and will be either be in the KHL, AHL, or retired soon. I'm sure he is a nice guy, though.

    Yeah this is kinda the way I think it's gonna go. I'd just wish they'd give Sgarby the first call-up or put Malone on the 3rd line instead.

    McLeod can play a few games on the 3rd line, but his abilities, or lack thereof, with the puck will become clear quite quickly.

    Fair enough. I think he has NHL potential on a weaker team to establish himself, I have always like him when I have seen him play with Binghamption. Easily one of the most noticeable players on the ice every game.

    From the Last Thread suggested by JFisher6

    Tanguay - Duchene - Parenteau
    Landeskog - O'Reilly - Downie
    McGinn - MacKinnon - McLeod
    Bordeleau - Mitchell - Cliche

    [Stastny Trade Acquisition] - Johnson
    Hejda - Barrie
    Benoit - Sarich/Guenin



    I would almost rather move Mitchell up with Mack and and keep Highlander with Bords and move Cliche in Mitchell's spot. Mitchell has a really nice shot and while Mack is going to be a heck of a goal scorer, he can also set guys up and Mitchell has a nice shot...better than Hilander's

    That Oilers, Sabres rumor is pretty wild. I hope something goes down, it would be hilarious if they trade Yak only to have Miller and Vanek leave after the year.

    The best part is LeBrun says that Oilers ARE part of Ryan Miller's no trade list.

    I LOVE IT, even Miller dislikes their fanbase! :laugh::sarcasm:

    I would laugh pretty hard if they both left. Sounds like a lot of Oilers fans are looking for any reason to say that the rumor is not true.
     
  18. Do we know what the Oilers want to give up in this trade?

    I think the Oilers will **** up regarding Yakupov. IMO

    It does sound like a bogus rumor tho.

    According to TSN.ca, EDM and BUF were working on a trade that would send Miller or Vanek to EDM for Yakupov +.

    Edmonton fans seem to want to get BOTH players for that package.

    Apparently Edmonton (one of eight teams) is not on Miller's trade list.

    Oh I agree, I just like seeing the Oiler fans panic now that their "Trade Yakupov" threads might be coming to light.

    That's what I'd be hoping for. Just miss the playoffs, and then have Miller and Vanek walk.

    he's cleared to play, think yesterday. going for conditioning stint at wings minor affiliate. but he's had many setbacks already so we'll see how it goes when he returns to full action.

    I hope Yak gets traded soon before he gets ruined up there.
