This premise of OEL being traded would actually be worth discussing if

1) Yotes did not find a suitable 1/2C this year (Ribero)
2) OEL had not resigned his very nice contract
3) If this was a draft day deal where OEL was moved for the #1 (MacKinnon) +
4) Yotes FO felt this was a move that made them serious cup contenders as opposed to playoff contenders.

Now it just seems a waste of time as clearly OEL is not going anywhere right now without a severe over payment. (MacK+Duchene, Toews + Saad, and the like is beyond ridiculous however as no team would overpay that much just for OEL)
