Say its 1, not 2.
With D being easier than scoring, who do you have in mind for 25 or 30 gs who who can be hadisn't a sexy name superstar?

I was not motivated, my detractors, by whether it was a sexy name.
I thought who are top Fs we can target, what would it take to get them, and then is there any scenario in which a horrible overpayment, but one I could still live with, might actually work.

My assumption is Edmonton won't hand those guys over for equal value, but that is enough to completely give the Oils a genuine defensive identity going forward, deals with certain G issues, gives them some offseting scoring in Boyle and a replacement prospect in Stepan.

Oilers may reject the deal, but can be argued this expedites their rebuild successfully, so they'd do it.
