A TRADE PROPOSERS DREAM...

Jason Gregor
July 24 2013 11:03AM

The day is finally here. Shea Weber can officially be traded. OMG.

I'm sure Craig MacTavish had a reminder in his phone to call David Poile this morning.

And the conversation went something like this....**

MacT: David, my man, what is happening. You been to Tootsies lately?

Poile: MacT, things are well. I only go to Tootsies during the season. I like to interact with the fans.

MacT: Smart. I just go to the bar outside our dressing room at Rexall. Some nights I need a beer just to watch our games...Anyways... I was thinking we should talk about a Weber deal.

Poile: Are you serious?

MacT: I've received loads of emails from fans outlining what it would take, so I want you to hear them. I've had a tough summer.

Poile: Awesome. I love fan proposals. Usually they are very fair.

MacT: How about Nick Schultz, Ales Hemsky, a 2014 first rounder and Linus Omark. He's the best forward not in the NHL.

Poile: Good one. I'll take two guys with one year remaining on their deals, and a guy who is great in shootouts. My fans would love it. I think my owner would be even happier. He's paid Weber $27 million for 48  games. I'm sure he wants to sell low now. You got any other offers, I need a good laugh.

MacT: You bet. My inbox had lots, plus when I listen to Gregor's show I hear some beauties from callers and texters.

Poile: One day I'd love to announce one of those trades. Just for fun. Too bad you can't make trades on April Fools Day.

MacT: Okay...how about this one... (laughs)... Jeff Petry, Ales Hemsky, Teemu Hartikainen, he was just invited to Finland's Olympic camp, Marc Arcobello, he's a skilled forward, and Omark, the best player not in...(bursts out laughing)... Sorry I can't even finish that statement. Best player not in NHL...Have any of those guys ever panned out.

Poile: Don't get me started. F*&*(#)* Radulov. They should have called him best floater not in the NHL. You thought Penner was a floater, hell, at least Penner had a pulse, a sense of a humour and he'd fill up on pancakes in the morning. Radulov loved vodka and late night clubs. That prick would booze it up in the playoffs. Now I'm annoyed. Any proposals that don't involve me bending over and holding my feet?

Mact: I love hearing you get riled up. I guess Pens wasn't that bad after all, and he is funny.

Poile: I'm going to go on a fanboard site and say you like him and tried to sign him.

MacT: Screw you, I had some people in Edmonton actually think he'd be a good fit for our team. So... honestly what will it take to get Weber.

Poile: I've paid him $27 million the past 12 months for 48 (*$&#()@ games. I'd need a lot. I'd need one of Hall, Eberle or Yakupov, and then Gagner plus something else. My fans are rabid, but after Weber, Rinne and Mr. Underwood they couldn't name two players. I need offence, and you have a lot of it. You pick which winger to give me along with Gagner and your 2014 first rounder...

MacT: That is steep. Can't do it.

Poile: How about I take Omark in the deal.

MacT: I can't give you one of those kids, Gagner AND Omark. The fans would revolt. Most believe he could be the main piece in the Weber deal. Good grief Dave, wake up.

Poile: (laughs)... Now you're fired up...So one of the kids and Gagner is a no go?

MacT: Will you throw in Rinne with Weber?

Poile: We're done. See you in late November....I'll take you to Tootsies. I have a VIP table. Do me a favour and bring some of those emails, I'll likely need a good chuckle.

**This was not an actual conversation...Well, we can't confirm that it was...**

Someone had to draft Webber? I think that Seth Jones or Darnell Nurse could be the next Webber or Pronger.

Trading for players by mortgaging your future is a zero sum game.........it may help you in the present but weighed against the future, it's a very risky gamble.

Fair enough. The revenues of the company matter not, and it was irrelevant to the conversation. The point I tried to get across was just that it seemed that the article went out of its way to insult fans, and that someone in business should be more aware of how to treat "customers"

And what I should've said was that my sense of humor was only intuned to what I found funny.

Not the person I am,or am trying to portray, so for that I apologize.

Not trying to flame, or troll, just wanted to add my perspective. If its not met with agreement, then its my opinion alone, and will accept when someone feels I am wrong.

So now your humourless..and pathetic.....

JUST KIDDING!!

Really no need to apologize....honestly......it's not that serious of an issue.....

I think it was Strudwick interviewing Al Coates of Edmonton Trapper fame, and he asked about winning teams, and the ability to draft/trade your way to a championship.

Coates basically said unless you're the Yankees, its very hard to trade or buy your way to a title.

You need to draft well, and develop even better. Oilers well on there way on the drafting side (drafted very well if you include the #1's)

Now they need Pitlicks', Martindales', and Marincins' to turn into NHL players

I'll keep the name, as I am far too lazy to change it. And atleast if I am remembered as the pretentious douchebag, then I am remembered.

I'd say I'll be the Kanye West of this site, but Wanye might not like that so much, and I am not going to risk losing him as a twitter follower (I'm stuck at 6 followers)

I am honest, just stupid sometimes. Don't know when its best to just keep a comment to myself.

That said, if Gregor gets paid per comment, I don't mind adding to it. If I didn't like his show or blogs I wouldn't bother coming here.

Whoops. That formatted funny. Meant:

One of Hall, Ebs, or RNH, AND Schultz JR, AND the 2014 1st round pick.

If Poile would take Ebs, JSchultz, a couple of prosepcts, and the 2014 1st rounder for Weber then MacT should sign and submit the paperwork. Ebs is a great winger, but Yakupov can take his place. JSChultz will become a very good offensive d-man, but will top out at a level below Weber at best. There is no guarantee the prospects and draft pick turn out in the end.

Adding Weber would have the same effect that Pronger did not that long ago, and he is locked up long term. If MacT would not have to sacrifice Hall, Yak or RNH as well then he should do a deal like this. As much as I like him, Ebs is likely the most expendable of the big 4 up front, and I doubt that Poile wants another high flying Russian forward for a bit. LOL

Agreed, but then you need Hemsky to stay

Yak can jump to 1RW, Hemsky can play with Gagner and Perron.

If its Ebs, JSchultz, and 2014 1st, can you get Weber and one of their bottom 6?

Has anyone ever tried NHL 13 to see what it would take to trade for Weber?

I would guess that it would have to be Eberle, J. Schultz & a first-rounder at minimum. Then you could change the settings, and play just your top five of:

Hall, Nuge, Yak, Weber, Ference

That's about the only way this trade works. On NHL 13. If I'm the owner of the Preds, and I just paid $27 million for 48 games, I'm not trading Weber. Ever.

Gregor should just make an article about NHL 13 trades, then people can talk about crazy trades they were able to make. Seems like there's an interest in the topic, but then it hopefully bottles up the crazy suggestions to the NHL 13 articles.

The average EVGA is 2.33/60 the Average Special team G rate is 6.00 PPGF/60 and 6.00 PKGA/60.

People talk about the minutes a players eats up. Weber is a big minutes eater. he played 24.85 minutes a night.

I allways ask are they good minutes or bad minutes. there is 48 even minutes 6 pp minute 6 pk minutes

for three even d pairs that is 16 min per.

Weber Even; 19.4 min/gm +3.4Min .064 comp 19th hardest in league (1st comp) 0.72 EVP/60 65th best 2.24 EVGA/60 (+2G) better than average for year

PK 1.88 min/gm 10.64 GA/60 worst in league (-12G)

PP 3.57 min/gm 4.2 PPPT/60 24th best in league 6.65 PPGF/60 (+3G)

Weber Did eat alot of minutes versus 1st comp. The desire is to get a D pair that can break even or beter 1st comp.to alow the rest of team to kill lower comp. weber was part of the 5th best tough comp even dpair in the Game.

Weber was the worst dman in the game on PK and cost his team 12 goals to average. you cannot make up for that kind of bad. he should not get any minutes on PK. Weber was +3g to average in the PP.

So relative to average performance he was -7 this year. Should have played 19.4 Even and 3.57 min PP with zero PK and he would have been +5. for 7.8M. though he would lokly only got 2nd unit minutes cause shultz is better on PP.

Jeff petry; Even 17.3 min/gm +1.1Min .038 comp 34th hardestin league (1st comp) 0.84EVP/60 43rd best 2.26 EVGA/60 (+2G) better than average for year he was on the third best even Dpair in the Game.

PK 3.26 min/gm 4.22 GA/60 17th best in league. (+8G)

He was a 20.56 min a night Dman facing the other teams best offence every night. pk minutes ar alot tougher than pp minutes.

So as as a Gm managing a cap. do you bring in weber at 7.8M to have equal results facing first comp and 1st/2nd unit minutes and no PK.

or do you stay with Petry who get s us +3G more for the year at 6.1M less against the cap.

Weber Even very good minutes Pk very bad minutes Pp slightly above Average. (-7)

Petry; even very good minutes. PK very good minutes. (+10)

First off, I guarantee Mac-T doesn't listen to your show, read your blogs, or read your blurbs in the paper. The people who DO however, are typically the people you are insulting with this article.

Sure, they're dreaming, if they think we'll ever get Weber, and sure their trade proposals are asinine.

In the end though, Gregor, calling Oiler fans, and by extension, YOUR fans, idiots, is both indicative of the columns you write, show you host, and is down right pathetic.

As you always say, BE BETTER!

Man have you completely missed the boat on this one. The point, which is always funny, is that it is normal for fans to over value the players on their team as well as make the assumption that it is easy to make a trade for anyone you need.

Another thing about RTBs stuff is that ...a lot of it flys in the face of convention...or popular thought .....which is very cool....AND...it looks like a lot of work...so I appreciate that part too....

Man if Gregor does indeed get paid per comment he owes you some commission lol. I think page hits would make the most sense though

You have been a good sport about everything. Many would disappear with all the attention you are getting. Though that deserved a mention.

Now you are trying to say you whine/rant was sarcasm? Don't backtrack you look like a fraud. You were offended, and the only one I saw, which is fine, but don't pretend that it was sarcasm.

How do you spell whoa? Whoa Nick......

He's not actually backtracking......he's making a joke about it.......

Ahhhh...humor.....if you have to explain it.....then it just isn't funny...

Oh, I can take the abuse

Remember, I do run a 3+ million dollar company (and that won't come back to bite me in my ass much)

I appreciate the honest comments I got from people here who disagreed. I didn't attack Gregor, I attacked the article, and thankfully, most people attacked my comments, and not me directly.

Its why I enjoy this site, and why I'll continue to take part in the discussions.

Haha... edited... figured most wouldn't get the humour of what it is like to be a manager at said restaurant, and I didn't want to look like a dig at you; taken enough heat today. I have been a manager at said restaurant, so it was a bit of a self-deprecating jab.

For the record. Great company and great food, and you HAVE to LOVE the staff, but if any of you have actually been in that spot you know what I mean.

pajamah that is the question. especially for his cap hit.

Smid and petry had the 3rd best results @ even for tough com d pairs. both kill it at PK. for 3.5 + 1.75M this year.

you do not move that. Chara-Boychuk Oduya-Hjarlmasson

Of coarse i would love weber to share 1/2 comp play and his PP production. but the Cap Hit!

J. schultz gets better results on PP. But was the worst Even GA 2nd comp dman in the game last year. historically bad.

picking weber cause TV says so is simplistic.

most teams do not have a top tough comp d pair. we do.

Though media claims otherwise. Gregor has the most interesting opinion. Petry had a bad year????????

top tough comp Even top pk top blocks top hits Smid and petry were the only pair.

So i look at the real results. Bad WTF! I hope Gregor can explain this.

As for MacT. Smid-Petry

Ference UFA A 2nd comp good minutes eater. who took on chara's minutes when he started to bleed.

Belov was considered the best dmman in the KHL last year. top 5 in points and +/-.

Grebeshkov was brought in he was close to league average in EVGA facing 2nd comp. I remember him being good on the PP but cannot get in to desjardins right now to confirm!

Klefbom led SEL in +/- for Dmen at time of injury facing first comp. Last year. Made a huge impression on MacT. Knows how to play against men. Which is what the AHL teaches.

Traded for larsen.

Ok...now that he's finally levelled off....lets start the campaign to BAN PAJAMAH!

Reasons: 1) He expresses an opinion that was not OUR opinion.. 2) he picked on defenceless Gregor.. 3) he's got a foreign sounding name...Pajamah?...what is that ? Some kinda Muslum Brotherhood name??...........GET HIM,!!!!!!

You try one of those Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburgers?

I wish I invented that. Atleast 3-4 million a year I could make off that.

I arose 3+ million days later....wait a minute

3,000,000 / 365 days = 8219 years.

6206 years until the apocalypse.
