I agree the odds of the Oilers trading their 1st away probably went up with MacT being hired.

He'll probably be more prone to making a big bold optics move and that 1st is a very valuable asset.

Personally I think they should NOT trade away that pick and simply use it to pick an elite prospect. They ought to address other roster needs in other ways than throwing away that valuable asset. Trading the pick is an "easy" move that doesn't require the same amount of effort as actually making other deals without giving up a potential star who will grow and be with the team for years to come.
