Well he is basically only playing with Krejci one he gets a good RW his number will pick up.
I don’t think this is about huge names, honestly.
I think we’re looking at Cehlarik/Senyshyn/Hughes(we love our Edmonton area boys) on the Baby B’s and guys like Heinen on the big club (even though scouting the Bruins for secondary scoring is a bit of a lost cause) My guess is we’re offering Kassian/Chiasson/picks.
We don’t have a GM right now and I sincerely doubt K Gretzky has the authority to move RNH.
Edmonton fans have been trying to get DeBrusk since the day Boston drafted him, same thing with Boychuk it was one Edmonton Boston trade proposal after another trying to get Boychuk to Edmonton. so of course you saying that he isn’t playing great your trying to devalue him in order to convince Bruins fans to trade him. 16 Goals and 19 points I n 47 games isn’t that bad, look at Pastrnak numbers in his first 2 seasons, then he game went to a whole new level. Well he is basically only playing with Krejci one he gets a good RW his number will pick up.
And yet they have been scouting heavily. What are we missing?
Trading Nuge when he's finally building off that rookie season performance would be beyond stupid.
Chiasson or Kassian for picks I could see
Pulju for Donato + JFK? That's something I would do.
There were rumors at one time that we coveted Krug. Does anyone think that he might be available?
Theyd want Nuge or Klefbom or Nurse.
All of which are an absolute no-go for Krug.
I'd do Pulju for Heinen 1 for 1
Our underperforming junk for your underperforming junk.
I doubt it, with Chara retireing this summer Krug being The Bruins Power play Quarterback, If we trade Krug our Left Defence would be very weak.
No, I mean the Oilers are currently, right now, over the cap and can't add salary until they get below the cap. They need to get below the cap just to activate Sekera. I'm not talking about the end of the season; I quite literally mean right now.
What a mess.
Bury Manning, replace with Lagesson.
Send down Puljujarvi, replace with Currie.
Trade Petrovic to a playoff team wanting grit for a 7th. Done.
John who are you directing this to? The only guy in this thread claiming Debrusk isn't playing well lives in MA (so I'm assuming a B's fan).
Anyway.... I'm with the other Oiler fans who've said that any trade is more likely looking at supporting cast players (from EDM) to Boston for your playoff push in exchange for baby-B futures. We are, tragically, sellers again at this deadline.
No way we are doing something as big as an RNH deal with an interim GM.
Too bad the guy that had the obsession with Kassian already brought him to his team.
My guess is RNH.
If there's a deal to be made, that's another question. But RNH seems like a logical need from the Bruins side.
Oilers are scouting B's farm team as well so its probably a lesser deal.
Trading away RNH would be very stupid.
Oilers need him far more than Bruins.
Imo the Bruins assets are more valuable in all scenarios.
Yes because Jake the winger with his 19pts is far more valuable than RNH and his 50+ points.
Ryan Donato must be lighting the league on fire as well. Maybe in 2 yrs Puljujarvi would become just as good.
I don't think Poolparty has any value right now and isn't close to those mentioned.
I think there could be a deal around the 1st option but EDM has such little leverage right now I don't think they'd get much for an RNH deal, at least not enough to make sense.
Last 2 guys are just replacement level players.
It would be something like
Why does Boston do this? Trading a bad contract for a worse contract, a downgrade in net, a Spooner who hasn't exactly lit the world on fire (far from it) and downgrading their prospect corps. Really makes zero sense.
What would be "something like this?"
Get a worse contract, downgrade in net and give up our best prospect? I'd love to know your reasoning for this.
Oilers need guys on their ELC to plug into their wings and a ton of the of the Baby Bs were drafted by Gretzky. He probably wants some of his kids.
Thinking - Heinen, Donato, Senyshyn, Hughes maybe JFK, Cehlarik.
Pool party for Donato? I'd consider it. Wouldn't do Heinen unless Edmonton added.
How does Donato have more value than Puljujarvi?
If in 2 yrs Puljujarvi sits on 9pts in 34 games while being -11 then he would have same value as Donato.
