Hey I have some more moves that could help the Oilers be a playoff team this coming year.

I'm still hoping for a Ales Hemsky for Matt Matin trade, seems like a great fit for both teams. Skilled second line winger and set up man for a third line ball of hate, both teams fill a need.

Ryan Malone 33 6-4 225 LW/RW 4.5 million cap hit signed until 14/15. He is a monster of a man, 6 time 20+ goal scorer and loves to bang bodies out on the ice. i can see him on the third line and he would also add depth(he has the ability to play up a line or two if needed). The down side to Malone is that he has never played a full 82 game season, but that is going to happen when you throw 150+ hits season. 6G 2A 8P 22PIM -3 49 Hits

Tom Pyatt 26 $600.000 cap hit final year of conract. Pyatt would be someone else the Oiler could get help from. He is a Center that has good defensive skills and is a good shot blocker. He had 36 last year, more then any other Edmonton Oiler forward, his face off % was an even 50% last year not bad not great but better then the center men on the current roster with the exception of Boyd Gordan. 8G 8A 16P 12 PIM +5

To get Malone, Pyatt and a 3/4 round pick from Tampa I think the Oilers would have to give up Ales Hemsky, Cory Potter, Ben Eager, and something like a 5-7 round draft pick.

Hemsky 29 5 Million cap hit is a solid second line set up man with great puck skills. Potter 29 $775.000 cap hit final year of contract. Cory is a 5/6 pairing defense man with offensive up side and is a big body on the back end. Eager 29 LW/RW 1.1 million cap hit final year of contract. He is some what of a tough guy but but has more skill then the average TG. He has speed to burn and he uses it to hit and crate havoc on the ice. His time in Edmonton hasn't worked out but a change of area code could help him. Tampa needs a s#%t disturber and Eager could be that guy.

I feel that this would be another good deal for both teams because Tampa would add depth to its defense, have another skilled winger, and have a guy that hits and gets in the face of the other team. The Oiler would acquire a huge winger that hits and can score with playoff experience. As well Pyatt would be a defensive asset and would add depth up the middle.

Oilers line up 13/14


Pyatt and Brown to be depth players


Larsen to be the 7th defense men

Thanks for reading, tell me what you think.

This is a terrible trade for the lightning.. We are trading hemsky for Malone... Malone had more points than hemsky 2 years ago and hemsky has a higher cap hit.. Tom pyatt is our 4th line centre who is probably better then ben eager. If potter cant make the oilers defense better then why would tampa want him? Then we are giving u a 3rd round pick!?!? No way would anyone in tampa be stupid enough to make this deal!! You are overvaluing a player who is injury prone and has a big contract... No thanks, try again with a different team.. The only thing tampa would want from the oilers is oscaar klefbom, taylor hall, or yakupov
