Oilers and Panthers talking trade?

The Chicago Daily Herald is reporting that Dustin Penner continues to be on the outs in Edmonton and they go on to suggest an absolutely ludicrous trade rumor that involves the Oilers and Panthers.

The article suggests that the Oilers and Panthers have been linked to various trade rumors that could see a package that would include Penner go to the Panthers for Bouwmeester. HTR feels that this rumor is pure fantasy and is never going to happen. It will be interesting to see what happens on the long term front with Penner however as he continues to underachieve despite his huge expectations.

    It never said Penner for Bouwmeester straight up. It said that Penner would be included in a package for him. I would expect the package must include Ales Hemsky is they are to land Bouwmeester.

    Kevin Lowe signing him to that inflated second contract is looking pretty good now eh?

    that would be absurd for Edmonton to include Hemsky in a package.  Bouwmeester is probably not worth Hemsky straight up as their contracts stand right now.  Any GM in the league would rather have 3 and a half more years with Hemsky guaranteed, than a half season with Bouwmeester and no promises. plus, you rarely see trades where a team replaces one problem with another.
