Wouldn't be surprised to see Methot traded to the Oilers for a young forward of theirs.
Murray doesn't look physically ready imo. 18 is very young for an NHL defenseman, his 185 lbs seems generous, and he's never played against men besides this years WC. He is very talented and possibly capable of making the transition from Juniors to the NHL, but I don't see him being ready physically this year. I think we have a pair of 21 year olds in Moore and Savard that are more fit overall for this coming season.
