A lot of these proposals don't take into consideration that the Isles want to develop their own player. We need a face of the franchise that is not DP and is home grown. That is part of the reason I would not trade the pick.

Two first rounders, including a top 10 one in this years draft. We can easily trade up to select a Jared Cowen. That would improve our offense, and defense.
Screw Cowan, I want OEL .

...perfect for Edmonton. We already have one of the worst contracts in the league with DP, now you want us to take another terrible contract? So pretty much we give up the first overall pick and trade our best defenseman who probably was top 10, definately, top 15 in the league last year. For a great prospect, but doesn't have the ceiling Tavares or Hedman do and would not be a home grown player for us. We move down in the draft. And we take on two salary dumps including Horcoff who has one of the worst contracts in the league.

perfect for Edmonton...
