Not the defenceman that the Oilers desperately need but Staal would be a perfect fit in the top 6. Clarifying alot of the remaining issues. Size, center, somewhat physical, winner, some expereince but still young, plays both sides of the puck and so on....
There would have to be some discussion between the Oilers and Staal's camp to guage if he is amiable to playing here beyond next year but aside from that?
Staal is one year from being a UFA, and likely won't be as good as Yakupov in the NHL.
The question is, do you trade 1st overall for Jordan Staal? The simple and complete answer is NO.
If the Oilers want to trade for Jordan Staal, there's a deal there to be made, just not with 1st overall, unless the team is looking to giveaway Elite Talent.
