Pure Speculation

In between the clouded memories and twisted thoughts that float around in my head every day, there is the rare occasion that something clear and intelligent sneaks past the radar…….

Unfortunately that hasn’t happened today so if this actually gets posted you will all be subject to my manical rumblings.
First off I’d like to say that due to my attention span (which could be compared to that of a retarded chimp on crack) I failed to sit down for the entire game. But as always I’m able to go to work the next day and look up last nights scores and what not.

Now although I only read every second word of the review (to save time) I did come across a part where Vincent Lecavilier said that he loves playing the western conference due to it’s “wide open game” and stated that “playing here was a lot of fun” referring to Rexall Place(Rexall- your family drug store, I mean arena).

Well Mr. Lecaviler how would you like to have the time of your life playing half your games here in a season and about 80% of that season against western conference opponents?!

Now I’m sure he never really meant anything by it but if I was Kevin Lowe and I heard that, my ears would definitely perk up. Whoa Kevin, yes he’s 6ft 4 but he has talent also. what’s that? You need some time alone? Sure thing.

Who would the Oilers have that could possibly interest the Lightning? Well, how bout Eric Brewer?

Of course we would have to get Lowe drunk in order for him to OK the trade of his 25 year old adopted son. The reason I’m throwing Brewers name out there is because for some reason it HAS been out there.

In my honest opinion the Oil are missing one thing, a centre with some sort of star power. When Oates was signed I was getting ready for the annual meeting of the Stars and Oilers in the playoffs. Right now Oates hasn’t been what I hoped which leaves a huge hole down the middle and the Oilers fighting for a spot(as usual).

I think Edmonton has the depth right now that will allow them to lose a D-man and in the Oilers system it’s not defence that wins you games, it’s the offense that they don’t have.

I’m not saying that it would go Brew for Vinny straight across because that wouldn’t be fair so throw in one of the 1st rounders the Oilers have this year(Philly’s cause it will be higher) and I think you have the beginnings of what could be a very probable trade.

    This is where you are wrong, when Lowe gets on the wobley sauce he gets all sentimental. Lowe is that guy that get’s all, “I love you man!”, and “This guy … This is the guy, he is the best guy ever.”

    What Lowe needs is a good dose of nose candy, then he would deal Brewer.

    Ive been an Oilers fan for a very long time. It is not to often that you here about a star player going that way.

    Even though this is just speculation I like the sound of it, but I don’t think that it would happen. there would have to be alot of youth on the table for T.B.

    to give this guy up. Brewer ? Mabe. But Lowe thinks that he is looking in a mirror

    P.S wasn’t the fab five in a little trouble in the 80’s

    over nose candy????

    Brewer… no. Moreau Yes… and a draft pick… yes. That could be a possibility. Seeing how goes out everyday and works his ass off. He is a good catch. Or how about Horcoff? Or George? Tampa could use a big George for an Eastern Conference team! Plus George likes the Hot weather.

    Those would be mine to go.

    Dude, not knocking your article or anything like that, but get off this website for a minute! Eric Brewer has not been availible, and is not availible. I know he’s been mentioned in a few papers, but also, those papers have been out East, without any sources. People are dreaming that we give up on Brewer so he can go flurish in there town. It’s not going to happen. Now, onto the point of your article. I saw when Vinny said that, and I also found it kind of interesting, but I doubt Lowe would go after him. Doesn’t sound like Jay Feaster is going to deal him anytime soon. You would need to give up Jani Rita, and Mike York. I think we are one good centre away from being a hell of a team, and that centre could be Jeff O’Neill. I think also that Jani Rita should be more then tradeable since all we’ve done with him is let him rot in the minors. A guy that should have been on the roster by 01 or 02, it’s now 04 and he’s still in the minors. Rita, 3rd round pick, and Doug Lynch. I don’t know if that’s fair, but that’s about as far as I would be willing to go if I’m Kevin Lowe for a not so struggling in his last 8 games Jeff O’Neill.

    Ok

    Lets pretend you guys are Jay Feaster and for some strange reason instead of the normal Jay he gets a spot of intelligence(not the fedatenko and 2 2nd rounders for the 4th overall pick kinda intelligence).

    Now, would you want George?(who won’t play for any other team),Moreau?(who is personally my favorite player on the team because of what he does but is no where near the talent of a Lecavilier) or would you want Eric Brewer?

    Do you guys honestly think that George and a pick would be fair? or Moreau for that matter?

    Tampa wants an offensive D-man and i know Brewer is just having an off year but i think that would be fair for Lecavilier.

    As for toughness they allready have Andre Roy and if they want someone more they can dip into free agency other than trade for a 240lb dead weight.

    Not to add too much offense to T_C or the conductor but that sounded like a Toronto fan offer 🙂

    (ANGER!!)

    Didn’t see that york and rita thingy

    York and Rita would be pretty fair, i still think a pick would need to be involved though.

    If that’s your “manical rumblings”, I’d certainly hate to see your “maniacal rumblings”. That extra vowel could put you right over the edge.

    I kid because I care.
