Then please tell us.

If we're acquiring an average stay at home defenseman that is dispensable to a team who hasn't had a sniff of playoff hockey in 7 years, is that going to sway the opinions of our writers?

We've now moved our first rounder in supposed deep draft and basically acquired a younger albeit less-talented Nick Schultz. How would our writers feel about that?

The Oilers don't need anymore 4, 5, or 6 defensemen. They need a bonafide top pairing, 30 minutes-a-night defenseman. Preferably left-handed.

That's the only way you'd pry that pick out of Edmonton's hands.
