Eric Brewer on the move??????
Calgary landed Brad Stuart so now GM Kevin Lowe has to look elsewhere for defencemen
Scrap Plan A.
Now that the Calgary Flames got Boston Bruins free-agent defenceman Brad Stuart, the Edmonton Oilers are likely setting their sights on Eric Brewer.
That’s Plan B, as rentals go.
St. Louis Blues team president John Davidson had one feeling-out conference call with Brewer’s agent Don Meehan last week, but no numbers were exchanged. With St. Louis giving Buffalo Sabres free agent Jay McKee $16 million over four years last July, it’s not a stretch that the former Oiler Brewer, who’s been used as the team’s shut-down defenceman since Andy Murray came in as coach, is thinking the same ballpark. It might be more, though.
How much do the Oilers give up for a guy who might be looking for $4 million or more, though. Could they even sign him in July? Maybe they only offer prospects, not roster players.
