    Hamilton for Tarasenko.

    Parayko to the Flames for Mark Jankowski and Derek Ryan.

    I'm not a fan, always seemed like his hockey IQ was a bit questionable and he seems overly prone to running hot or cold for long stretches.

    I'd guess there is atleast one or two teams out there that would bet that the Schenn of last year is the kind of player he is and his numbers are only down this year cause nearly the entire team is underperforming, but I think the Schenn of last year was the abnormality and not the normal level of performance you can expect out of him.

    Obviously we are garbage and I'd take the added offensive punch if he was relatively cheap to pick up, but I'm guessing he'd fetch a 1st rd pick+ and that's more than I'd pay for this player.

    Nope. Saad is a guy who lacks drive.

    Do you really need to trade 1st rounders for 40 point wingers making $6 million.

    it's awful

    Lucic and a 2nd for Saad

    They don't do it but that's about the extent of my interest in Saad.

    Two of my favourite Oilers connecting for one of the biggest goals in "recent" Oilers history.

    If we made that trade Saad would become another new boat anchor contract we’re trying to get rid of and we’d have given up one of our most valuable trade chips.

    Oh God he’s a forward with term. Please don’t let this be the idiot Chia is targeting.

    Brandon Pirri. People don't think he is a liability now.

    He's the kind of chance that should he taken here.

    Fans forget thing so quick . Let’s look at Puljujarvi . He was injured when drafted which set him back . Then he could not speak English . Those 2 things probably cost him 2 years of development . The kids a big 2 way RW , that can skate and shoot the damn puck . I see Chia doing something dumb like trading Nurse + Puljujarvi and our 1st hence my OP on the mains . If I had my way Chia would be fired today . Bring in a competent GM . Only trade UFAs at the deadline . Try and move Lucic and or Sekera in the offer season . We have too many holes for a quick fix . Make dumbass trades to make the playoffs only to lose in the first or second rd is useless . Talk to McDavid and let him in on the plan . I am sure if it is laid out properly he would buy in .

    Cap is increasing so if we could dump a few contracts we may be able to go after Stone or Duchene all while keeping our draft picks and adding some picks threw trades

    I'm not paying a second for Bob who is struggling just as much as what we have. Getting rid of Spooner would be nice for next year, but as bad as he's been we still need some vet forwards and not more rookies playing on this club

    He needs to play wing. He looked good as a complimentary winger, he's never looked good as a center

    The whole league had multiple shots on this guy every year for a few years now. Not sure what the deal is wiht him.

    Although he also did way better in the AHL this year, so maybe he's putting in an effort?

    I already almost forgot about the failed Jokinen experiment as well.

    Id be down for Saad. I dont like the contract, but there is a chance he bounces back. If we could offload Lucic in another deal, Id be in to get Saad for cheap
