- Darren Dreger: In the eyes of Oilers management, Jordan Eberle will be an Oiler forever. He’s not a trade target.
- Tim Panaccio: It’s GM Paul Holmgren’s job to look for anyone he thinks can be an impact player, even if the other team says ‘no’.
- Tim Panaccio: Panaccio has been told that the Flyers are talking with the Oilers about Jordan Eberle. Callups from the AHL or small trades won’t turn the Flyers around, it has to be an impact deal.
- Jonathan Willis: There isn’t a Flyers defenseman worth Jordan Eberle, only forwards.
- Joe Yerdon: Yerdon wonders why the Flyers would talk with the Oilers as they don’t have the defenseman they’re looking for.
- Bruce Arthur: If they are talking: “it could be a panic-incompetence-sell-low singularity.”
- Greg Wyshynski: Wyshynski wonders why the Oilers wouldn’t pick from the Panthers who have defensmen and a goalie.
- Greg Wyshynski: “HEADLINE: Flyers Talking Eberle W/ Oilers ACTUAL CONVERSATION: “Can we haz Ebz?” “You haz defenderman we needz?” “LOL NOES!!!1!” “*click*””
