But considering the lack of decent defensive forward options in Edmonton's system, you'd have to overpay to get him. Simple as that.
I highly doubt Poile is willing to overpay for a guy like MPS. There just isn't the need in Nashville. When he overpaid for Gaustad he was trying to solidify the PK (also brought in Gill) and get some more depth in the bottom six.

Oilers need his size in the line up, and he's turning out to be a 3rd line forward that's good at the PK.
Yeah that definitely isn't going to happen. I'd rather hang on to both of those guys at the moment.

Also, 24 years old is not old at all for a dman. We've been spoiled lately with Doughtys and Karlssons, because typically dman take at least 5 years to develop.

Nashville passes on a MPS for Blum swap.
Definitely. Blum for MPS is terrible value for Nashville.

Whitney will likely be gone from EDM soon enough and we need another offensive puck carrying Dman.
Wow... I mean, as much as I like Ellis I'd have to take that package, but Edmonton would never offer it.
