I would expect them to try and package Pääjärvi and Gagner for an upgrade in one of those positions.

All that aside, I'm not even convinced Pääjärvi would be a better option for our top 6 this season than Bennett.
Edmonton needs young defensemen and draft picks since they are still a future-oriented organization. Don't doubt that.
