Oils eyeing Zaits
#1
Apparently according to the Score. Edmonton Oilers are interested in Zaits 

From The Score 

Who do they have we could use?

Considering the Oilers new GM recently said in no uncertain words that he isn't looking to upgrade the defence this off-season........

Then again, this wouldn't really be an upgrade now, would it?

Maybe they want to part with Russell, Manning or some other spare parts? Zaitsev sorta kinda fills a need on the right side but his term ia kinda long for them.

Figured the Oil would target a forward like Brown, AJ or Kapanen over Zaitsev
If you need a sign to stay alive tonight, this is it!

So if it’s  not an upgrade then the speculation must be true. But ppl say different shit. Just different days

stay far away from Lucic.

especially on a team facing a cap crunch. cap hit of 6 mil for the next 4 years, and is NOT worth it (54 pts combined in the last two FULL seasons..its not like he even missed time),

stay far far away from Lucic.

I kinda agree with you. It would need to be a sweetener but just thinking maybe we would need to take a contract back because Zaitsev has lots of term left too and we need some grit.
Would a change of scenery help Lucic? Probally but could backfire. But if the oil added a first or something with Lucic or something significant who knows

Zaitsev cap hit only 4.5, for the next 5 years. Lots of term...but low value.

we shouldn't have to eat a bad contract for them to take that. That is cost certainty for them.

stay away from Lucic.

A first what? Round draft pick?

Certainly not in that scenario with an anchor contract with 5 years of term coming back.

If the Oilers add the 8th overall to Lucic that would need to result in a clean disposition all $6M, end stop. That would not be something the Oilers should or would be willing to do though.

Zaitsev has the 62nd highest cap hit amongst NHL defenseman. His cap hit ranking among defenseman will certainly drop going forward. He does not have an anchor contract and is not the shitty player people make him out to be.

Over the last few days the Oiler board has transformed Lucic from unwanted to All Star. LOL. Hide your prospects kids, Looch is coming to your town.

Not by me - I've posted ad nauseum why Eriksson is the better player of all players.

I say no as well. Getting very tired of the Leafs looking to take other teams Garbage Lucic has done squat since he left Boston. So why would the Leafs want to take that for us!

Pouz, I knew your stance. Your Oiler buddies seem to have decided to keep him. Most teams, like the Leafs, want nothing to do with him.
