You can now vote in the polls!
It's trade deadline time, lambs. And there's nothing better than talking smack about who should be traded, who should come here and why, “Jarret Stoll plus Smid PLUS a second-round draft pick should be enough to pry Ovechkin out of Washington...” Right?
But it ain’t that easy—no way.
Here's the deal: we have in our hot little hands a brand spankin' new Oilers jersey—road white, size Large. And we're going to give it to someone—but not just anyone. This someone must propose the deal that makes the most sense to the Nation.
So add a comment to this article and propose a trade—be sure to leave your REAL email address. Explain why you think the deal is valid for both teams. Talk trash about the other trades, show some love when you think they're good ones.
We will be selecting the six best trades, and everyone will be voting on them the day before the deadline and on deadline day. The winner gets an Oilers jersey. It’s that simple.
Note: Given the traffic that the Nation gets from all over the world (we have been getting mad love from Japan, the US, some Europe and in Tunisia of all places - 4 visits in the past month!) we've huddled together and decided that, YES, if you win the trade deadline contest we will ship this bad boy anywhere in the world. And this contest ain’t sponsored either (thanks Corporate Edmonton); it’s out of our bottle money that we're paying for this.
We thank no sponsors, think it's reasonable to assume that everyone could be traded and want to get started!
Let’s make a deal!
