    The Oilers and Kings have continued talks and the deal has switched from Yakupov to Gagner, but even "a bigger name in Edmonton was discussed briefly...

    However, Edmonton has also talked to "at least one more team regarding Gagner this morning."

    I really won't be upset at all if another team comes in and grabs Gagner.

    If they can get Gagner for Clifford ++ and get Edmonton to eat some of Gagner's salary, it's a win. I'd then like to see a complimentary move for MacDonald.

    Yeah, I know, I'm harping on MacDonald.

    Is he any worse than Muzzin, because the latter has been Doughty's regular defense partner.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Oh that would be rich, Ducks work something for Vanek (like they really need more scoring) and we're working on a "blockbuster" deal for "6 goal" Gagne.....LOLZ. I guess some teams know what they're doing and other's simply don't.

    More than Nolan, Martinez, Muzzin, Voynov, Lewis, Frattin, Mitchell, REgeher, Fraser, Vey, Pearson, and Greene...so it might help. Probably not a lot, but even a little improvement is still improvement.

    I don't dispute it would be a "win" on paper. I'm not sold on Gagner at all. Don't see what he is going to bring. This isn't a Jeff Carter type trade. Would rather Clifford and that pick go for other assets.

    fair enough. I think he'd slot in well on the third line but also could move up and down the lineup. I think this trade basically involves swapping "stagnated" players that could use a change in scenery.

    Default The all not knowing trade superthread!

    Let's see, Gagner is being used as a 3rd line left wing on a team that has no defense and no "team mentality", 6 goals? Sounds about right. He's a highly skilled forward (ask Chicago) who is playing a checking role. And the trade might have Kyle Clifford. Great grinder (like a lot of the Kings), hard nosed (like a lot of the Kings), not that skilled (opposite of Gagne). Like KFC, but if Gagner is coming back for him, plus maybe Muzzin, hell yeah I'd take it. May not be a good defensive forward, I think the team has enough defensive minded players to make up for it.
