Talented winger for McD and talented 2nd line center to replace Draisaitl
Drai is the best player in the deal. Not sure Nylander would flourish well in (probably) a tougher checking West; I think he's rather soft, so I also have my doubts as to how effective he'd be in the playoffs when things get more and more chippy. I'd rather keep Drai.
We've made too many deals where we give up the best player in the deal and it's come back to bite us hard in the ass. Would rather not make the same mistake a millionth time. Otherwise, there's no issue with value as a whole from the Oiler's perspective, although the money wouldn't work for either side, so no chance this happens.
Toronto gets its head kicked in value wise. Edmonton can’t afford it.
Oilers fan are ya????
McD can score his 120pts without another 7M winger. What Edmonton needs is a winger for Draisaitl.
EDM passes. Also, TML don't need another expensive C.
Matthews - 11 million
Tavares - 11 million
Know what we need? An 8.5 million dollar 3rd line C.
The truly shocking thing to me is given his post history OP looks to be a Leafs fan.
Sorry guys, but this offer ain’t on Oiler fans.
Poorly thought out OP.
No chance the Leafs do this
As an Oiler fan I take that and run.
So Nylander (talented winger) and Kadri with $1.5m retained (talented 2nd line center) for McD and Drai?
Sign me up!
Obviously just having fun with the wording here.
**** off. Drae needs to be traded to Colorado in the summer for Barrie + Kerfoot + Bowers + COL 1st!
Kadri is already a super value- one of the best contracts in the league. Why would they retain on him?
That would make draisaitl from 8.5 to 10 mil hit practically.
Not well thought out at all.
Toronto gets ****ed in value.
Edmonton cant afford it and dont want to give up the best player in the deal while taking on salary
It's happening, deal with it. Sooner or later, I'm getting my sexy german beast.
Jesus, and the Leafs are retaining too. You take an already cheap player and make em cheaper for some reason.
What the hell is this
I guess this is better than ‘he sucks, he’s overpaid, he can’t drive a line but you should trade him to us anyway’
Drai isn’t going anywhere, we need him.
Let me preface this by saying that I haven’t watched you play at all this year so can’t comment on any developments this season. But I’ve watched at least 25 games a year for the past few seasons to watch Leon’s development...I’ve been a huge fan of his since he was a prospect, lived in Buffalo at the time and told everyone that they should pick Drae 1st overall when they had the chance. And from what I saw; you needed Barrie & more guys who can skate with skill...even with Drai.
Your transition game really suffered when McDavid wasn’t on the ice, and though Nurse is an underrated PMD, Tyson is ****ing elite in transition at ES. Having him or Connor on the ice for most of the game...while surrounded by more guys who could keep up & contribute; could leave you even more dangerous than trying to cobble together a line around Drai and banking on the forwards to make up for a blueline core that won’t be too dynamic until Bouchard is riffling stretch passes left & right.
Not saying it will or won’t be better than just keeping Leon; but I think that trade would be a win-win with some jiggling...at least if you didn’t squander the pick.
Reading this gave me the pee shivers.
In today’s cap world, kardi alone @3mill >> dri*+ 1.5 in dead cap space alone . Let alone adding....
It’s not a win win considering Barrie on a Draisaitl - less Oiler team would have no one to pass it up to most of the time or wheneven McDavid needs a rest and Kerfoot and Bowers are longshots to even be fractionally as good as Drai is right now and he’s got more growing to do yet. When you factor in that Barrie can walk for nothing after next year it’s a long, long way from a win win. It’s a clean win for the Avs, the Oilers get left hoping Barrie can be convinced to stay and the remaining futures and B pieces don’t turn into pumpkins.
Never gonna happen, friend.
lol, c'mon man...
Helllll naw. You trying to scare us cuz its halloween?
