If the complete season is lost to a lockout and the Leafs are awarded with the second overall pick, would you target the Edmonton Oilers as a trade partner?

Some would jump at the opportunity to draft a defender like Seth Jones. He along with Rielly would make our defensive core among the leagues best. However, we have a glaring need at the forward position, specifically center.

Would you be willing to trade down in the draft to select between 10-15 and acquire Taylor Hall in return for that second overall pick +?

Trade Proposal:
Toronto Maple Leafs trade:
2nd overall pick +

Edmonton Oilers trade:
10-15th overall pick
Taylor Hall

I chose Taylor Hall in particular as I feel Edmonton would be willing to give him up before RNH, Yakupov and Eberle. I find it difficult for the Oilers to sign all these top young forwards with a limited defensive core aside from Schultz. As for Taylor Hall, he could easily move to center Phil Kessel and perhaps Lupul. This would make our top 6 look like:

Now tell me that doesn't look sexy. Get er' done Burkie

As Oiler fans, what would the Leafs need to include in the deal in order for this deal to happen? Would you personally make this deal?

Otherwise you could offer Tim Connolly + ? for Ryan Getzlaf. No one would even bother with a thread like that. Put some effort into the offer.

He is trying to create a discussion on what the plus should be...nothing wrong with that imho. Other than the fact that most posters here can't read one full post before responding.
