This is for purely speculative purposes. If the season ended today and the Oilers had a top-5 pick in the coming draft, would you trade the pick? If so what would be the asset/player you would try and target?

Tambellini and his staff have repeatedly stated that they have faith in the group that they have drafted and would like them to continue to grow together. The idea would be that trading the high 1st round pick would send a signal to the troops that the rebuild is over and that it is time to start competing. Trading the pick could yeild a top asset in their prime from a team entering a rebuild phase who could try to rally the youngsters.

OR

Would you take the best player available in the draft and continue on the line Edmonton has been the past few years?
If the deal is right and makes the team better a Gm has to entertain all trades
