    Both teams are struggling due to bad coaching and bad chemistry. Blockbuster:

    Edmonton get:

    -Ehlers 6M
    -Myers 5,5M
    -Little 5,291
    -Vesalainen ELC


    Winnipeg get:

    -Draisaitl 8,5M
    -Lucic 6M
    -Puljujärvi 0.975


    Winnipeg after trade:

    Connor-Scheifele-Wheeler
    Perrault-Draisaitl-Laine
    Lucic -Roslovic -Puljujärvi
    Copp -Lowry- Tanev/Dano

    Morrissey -Trouba
    Kulikov -Bufyglien
    Morrow- Niku
    Chiarot

    Edmonton after trade:

    Ehlers-McDavid-Rattie
    RNH-Little-Yamamoto
    Caggiula - Strome - Vesalainen
    Rieder - Khaira - Kassian

    Klefbom - Larsson
    Nurse - Benning
    Russell - Myers
    Boussard

    Swap of 2 bad contracts in Lucic/Little. Little with more value obviously and will help Edmontons C-troubles. Ehlers+McDavid would be a speedy pair to watch. Laine gets his C in Drai. Edmonton get a D in Myers and promising winger in Vesalainen. Niku will be brought up to 3rd pairing for Winnipeg. I actually like both teams better on paper atleast than what they got now. How does this trade look? Many piesces involved but you never know… :D

    No dice from Edmonton. Myers is a pending UFA and I can’t think of a reason we’d want Little. Ehlers is a nice piece but we don’t need to ‘get McDavid a winger’ which is basically what this boils down to.

    I doubt the Jets would do this either, as bad as some of their fans want Draisaitl.

    Who the hell is Boussard?

    Have to agree with C.O. Myers is a pending UFA which makes him of no interest to Edmonton. Edmonton is in NO position to take on anyone else's cap dumps, even when giving up Lucic.

    No from Winnipeg. Little's contract is a going rate contract. Lucic's contract is a bad, poison pill contract in a true, historic sense. Edmonton would have to add more incentive for the Jets to bail them out on that contract.

    Drai nice, but I wouldn’t give up that much for him.

    expansion draft is when? 2020-2021? Little's NMC expires then and Lucic still has it for one more year as well thus occupying a protection slot, something to consider too.

    the way I see it, in this trade you upgrade the C position while losing two important pieces of the team now and one important piece for the future. imo this upgrade is not big enough to warrant all that. and then there's that albatross of a contract going your way too.

    The way things are going at the moment Edmonton won’t have seven forwards worth protecting so one of them might as well be Lucic.

    If you took away Lucic it still wouldn’t be a fair deal for the Jets.

    I have seen worse offers but I would not do if I was the Jets.

    All that would mean to me is that whichever team he’s on has to buy him out. Zero chance anyone burns a protection spot on him.

    If Lucic waives for a trade does that new team have to honor his NMC? Just curious what the CBA states.

    I doubt that this offer moves the needle much for Winnipeg.

    Draisaitl is a nice piece and a good winger, but he's a bit over paid. Having to honor Lucic's contract is going to kill any deal unless there's a major incentive to take it, I don't see that here. I'm not all that sold on Poolparty who has struggled in both the NHL and AHL in his career and looks like he needs more farm time right now.

    I’m not an expert on that but pretty sure that’s contract specific. Some become invalidated, others don’t.

    Again definitely not an expert so grain of salt and all...

    No bueno. We add cap that we dont have. Myers walks this year cause we cant sign him cause we added more cap we dont have. Little is a cap dump. Lucic at least costs only 4 mil a year after July 1 so if we retain a mil some team that doesnt spend to the cap may take him at 3 mil real money per. So its Puljujarvi vs Vesalainen. Dont think we are ready to give up on Jesse. And then its Drai vs Ehlers which we've been waiting for a big Center since Weight and Arnott

    WPG isn't struggling and neither team takes this deal.

    Benning ahead of Myers ? Benning should be launched on the next space X rocket . He can be the new rocket man .

    Jets are 2 and 2 in the first 4 games and you think they are struggling?

    Talk to me after 20 games.

    As for the OP. Why would the Jets help out the Oilers and lose this trade?

    Blockbusters usually blow up, as this one should.
