Reason:Caps get top 6 winger could influence kuznetsov to come to NHL. Sure, we give up assets but it's worth it if we can sign ribeiro as 2C and possibly fill that D hole somehow. The pick is going to be a late rounder probably if a lottery happens so no big loss there. Edmonton get 2C could move gagner down and get good D prospect and an upgrade from some of their other D prospects. 1st round just adds value to make it more fair for edmonton giving away their first overall pick, even though i don't think he would fit into their lineup.
*Ribeiro is old and i'd guess not part of the long term plan.
*Yak is a prospect. Johansson is an nhl player that approached 50pts in his second season. He plays pp and pk and all three forward positions aswell as 5 on 5 and 4 on 4.
* Orlov also has NHL game to see. He has shown himself to be a big play defenseman at the baby stage both offensively and defensively.

You would seriously trade them both plus a 1st for a selected early first? I dont think thats smart.
