Given the direction the Oilers seem to have gone with the Smid trade, it seems like they are still looking for younger players, which would make us better trading partners imo.

I'd rather deal young players than players like Edler/Burrows who are in their prime right now, as we are still trying to compete now. I can definitely see why a lot of Oilers fans would prefer to start the transition to "win now" though, given how long the current rebuild has lasted for.
I don't think supert is correct at all, the Oilers would need more than what's offered here. Its a good package, but we can't keep downgrading for picks and prospects all the time.
