People need to re-evaluate what's been said today and think about it. The Panthers aren't trying to snag Nugent-Hopkins from Edmonton, if Edmonton wants him, they'll take him, no questions asked...that's not whats being discussed.
Or you could look at it another way, the Oilers want RNH but if someone offers them something significant then they'll accept that and give up the right to draft RNH. Tambo basically said that he'd have to receive a great package in order to trade the #1. It's fine that Tallon is inquiring about the pick, that's his job. But I don't think he's going to pay the price that Tambo wants.
