I'd assume Erixon wouldn't be traded to Edmonton, despite not having a "say" he clearly didnt want to be in Calgary. But i would seriously consider staal or girardi and maybe our first in exchange for their first and a later rounder, if Schultz signed and was ready. I suppose thats based on my hope that Erixon at some point can step in and play competent D.

Yakupov would be a nice winger for Stepan and I cant fathom edmonton wants another forward piece, leaving the weakness on D, and not doing anything to bridge the gap to the competitive status they'll need to resign all these guys in a few years.

Would Edmonton do Mcilrath, Dubinsky and our first?

Draft day will be interesting - especially if Columbus wants out of their spot.
LOL try Dubs, Artie, MDZ, and 2 firsts and they wont laugh at you
