That's a reach brother. I think Derek has great upside but if teams thought like this, you would never see young prospects traded. I would rather get stronger now and for the next several years to contend for the Cup than worry about what may happen to Voynov, Muzzin, Hickey and not make a move. This is all academic anyway. No way Oilers make this move. They would have to lube themselves up if this trade went down.
