why are you so obsessed with trading Eberle? He's a stud and is going to be a sure 40 goal sorer when Kruger gives him the minutes Renney didn't. and you want to trade a guy who will score like 400 goals for a piece of crap Subban or that soft pussy OEL? Klefbom is better than OEL and no one wants Subban in the locker room with our kids. He's a bad influence and terrible person and doesn't deserve to play with us. He's the type of person that breaks up teams. Let Montreal have that shithead. All you do is wait. The system is loaded with d who will all be better than Subban in a few. Keep your shitty trade fantasies to yourself and your buttbuddy ALan.

Allow me to retort.
Trading Eberle for a #1 defender is a no-brainer. The Oilers desperately need help on the back and Subban, OEL, Pietrangelo and Carlson provide that at an extremely high level. If the Oilers landed either OEL or Subban, they immediately become the best blueliner the franchise has had since Pronger and they're both very young, meaning the Oilers get control of them for their best years.
