    Edmonton’s playing a lot better lately and have knocked off some pretty elite teams.

    I still think we need to make a move to improve our #4 defenceman, and after looking around a bit I thought that Mark Pysyk might be a good fit and would sync up nicely with Darnell Nurse to form a strong second pairing, and he’d be affordable with 2 years left at 2.73 mil.

    Pysyk in any way available for not-stupid pieces? What would Florida be looking for?

    Would also consider other #4 defencemen - young ish and cheap ish preferable as is right handed.

    Don't think Florida can afford to trade Pysyk without getting a good dman back

    I’d think about moving Bear in a package for him - he’s got a ton of upside and is bottom pairing ready right now. Only 21 and former WHL defenceman of the year .

    Would rather keep Bear and the fact Pysek is a bottom pairing D man and we already have plenty of those

    Pysyk plays 18-20 minutes a night with fairly heavy defensive zone starts. That’s not a bottom pairing d-man.

    I like Pysyk but would prefer to hold on to Bear.

    Agreed. Once Bouchard is sent down(and I think he will) then Bear will be in the line up

    Petrovic or Pysyk could be available if we dont turn things around soon.

    Pysyk has 2 years left, Petrovic is a UFA.

    What's your opening bid?

    What do you need?

    I’d start with Ostap Safin, Benning, and our extra 3rd for Pysyk.

    A upgrade to our top 4 RD
    2019 2nd or 3rd round picks
    A goalie capable of 50+ games

    I'd do a 2019 2nd for Pysyk + 4th/ C level prospect

    Or Bear + one of your 3rd round picks.

    Benning + a 3rd is a possibility.

    Seems like I’m in the wheelhouse then.

    Don’t sleep on Safin, either. He’s not some toss in IMO - he’s got top 9 upside.

    exactly, you cant make any trade without meeting needs for BOTH teams and with Yandle getting up there in age, the similarly profiled Ethan Bear is a good fit

    How about Maksimov instead of Safin, we could use more RWs. LW is probably our biggest strength in the depth chart.

    If you want Maksimov instead the third has to go. I really don’t want to move him.

    Same, I see legit top 6 sniper upside in him.

    Oh ya....? How about now?!?

    [​IMG]

    Ultimately, I'd ask for Bear + Maksimov + 2019 3rd for Pysyk + 2019 4th

    Feel Bear is worth a 3rd, Maksimov is worth a 4th, combined with the 3rd, it's a late 2nd and Pysyk + 4th is equal to it. I know they may hold more sentimental value for you but feel it's a fair deal considering Pysyk has 2 years left @ $2.7 million and is good for 16-18pts a year while being a really durable low end top 4 RD.

    Deal or no deal?

    I would say no deal. Bear has significantly outperformed his draft position, as has Maksimov. It would take a 2nd rounder to get me listening to move either of them.

    3rd, Benning, and Safin, Bear and Safin, or Benning and Maksimov.

    If Bear is so good why would you move him for Pyzyk? It's not like the Oilers are winning the cup any time soon. Have patience and develop your defense for christ sake.

    Bear isn't NHL regular yet.. Pysyk is.
    Chia needs to make the playoffs this year if he wants to stay employed.
    Bouchard allows EDM to trade Bear.

    Ideally Oilers trade Benning+3rd instead

    Fair enough, I'd change the 2019 4th to a 2020 3rd along with Pysyk (we don't have a 2019 3rd, hence me asking for yours) as my last counter. Pysyk is from Edmonton, bring him home!!
