Scoring LW'er with speed and size? An advanced version of Kreider.
Then we still get to bring Kreider in next year?
I like McD, think he can be a solid 2nd pairing defenceman, but I also like our depth at that position and feel that we could use to add a bit more offensive talent to our forward group.
One for one, i do that deal.
McD+ for MSP, I'll pass.
Please help me to understand why in gods name you would do that? MP proved close to nothing about all his hype. The guy had 15 goals and hes a CENTER not a LW. We have Anisimov and Stepan who BOTH had MORE pts than this guy and are the same age.
An advanced version of Krieder? Not a chance, they arent close to being the same player and if thats your arguement towards why we should trade Mcd for MP then its dumb considering we will have krieder up with us NEXT YEAR.
Mcdonagh IS ALREADY a solid 2nd pairing defensman. Do you believe he wont progress and get better? If thats what you think then yea by all means make the trade. But if thats what you think then you are sadly mistaken. Mcdonagh has just started to scratch the surface of his NHL career and i personally can see him becoming another Marc Staal like player.
Not interested in trading any of our young d until we find out who fits and everything and even then i wouldnt trade him for MP. the only guy on the oilers i would is taylor hall
