This

Edmonton has the brightest young core in the NHL.

The real test will be providing a good supporting cast around these guys. Not every team can have a Lucic, but replacing some fringe players with strong role players will be the key.

A guy like Fistric is a perfect example. Big, physical guy who can log decent minutes.
- Cost Edmonton a 3rd round pick.

Vancouver got Lapierre and Higgins for 3rd round picks.
- Lapierre is gritty and plays anywhere in the bottom 6
- Higgins is a 2nd line guy who's one of the hardest working guys in the league,

Its just a matter of adding a nice supporting cast
