I keep hearing about how clutch he will be in the playoffs, just like juniors. If he can't be clutch to stay in the play off race why would he in the playoffs. Stupid hypothetical, I get that. But I think you can see where I am coming from. He has had 6 VERY MEANINGFUL games and he has two assists in them.

Having said all of that, the Oilers will never trade him, nor should they. He is a great hockey player. Well, not unless they could get a #1 D-man and #1 Goalie for him.
Agreed. Taylor Hall should be the one untouchable on that roster. Everything else should be available for the right price. But if you could get a package like Lehner, Cowan and Zibanejab you have to do it. For 2nd liners and 2nd pairing defensemen, you definitely pass.
