Edmonton - Nashville

Note: If I was Mactavish and Poile said "if you change the first to 2013 we have a deal" I'd hesitate for a while but eventually accept because of how much Weber could help the oilers.


2014 1st round pick

Why it makes sense for Nashville:
After a tough season Nashville begins a rebuild by trading their best defenseman (and one of the best defenseman in the league) for a young scorer, a young defenseman and a first round pick. Nashville obviously needs offense and Eberle, Barkov, Forsberg, and Wilson is a good young core to build around. Since Nashville is sending a defenseman to Edmonton they also add another defenseman that can step into the lineup in Petry. Also, another first round pick obviously helps a rebuilding team as well.

Why it makes sense for Edmonton:
Edmonton needs to make a big trade. Eberle is the most likely of the big 4 to be traded and the oilers need a vetran player instead of relying on only young players. With Weber in the lineup there is little doubt that the oilers would at least make the playoffs next season and for many seasons to come.
