Isles trying to get 1st Overall from Edmonton?

Per twitter:

@Eklund: Been chasing this rumor from an excellent source.. the islanders are trying to get the to pick overall from Edmonton. anther team involved.

Obviously it's from Eklund so it's most likely 99% false, but it is an interesting scenario nonetheless...

Short of Tavares, I don't see much that the Isles could give up

i wouldn't be surprised if the Oilers traded down 2 or 3 spots and took Murray or Dumba

would 4th OVR + De Hann for 1st OVR + 32 OVR work ?

If that were to happen, seems like it would most likely be a move-down from 1 to 4 plus hamonic or de haan.

Irrelevant. If it's from Eklund it's b.s.

Another team involved? I mean I doubt any of this will happen, but I'd certainly be interested to see who the 3rd team is and how it all shakes out. Either way, the Isles are going to have to bite and give up something they probably don't want to give up. I just hope it's not Hamonic/Strome.

Not that I believe the rumour but I think Hamonic + 4th for the 1st would work for Edmonton.

E4 or E5? Cause Eklund's proven to be such a credible source in the past for NYI rumors.

Moving Harmonic wouldn't work for the NYI.

I don't see why the Oilers would do that for the 1st by itself, let alone adding their 2nd.

My guess is if Edmonton traded the first pick the 2nd pick(ie Murray) would have to come there way(basically a case the Isles would have to trade for the 2nd pick, then trade that for the first)

Even without the #32 pick, what does De Hann add to this that the Oilers really need to give up the 1st pick. He is a smaller left-handed offensive dman. He has actually regressed somewhat since his draft year. At this point he may be behind Klefbom, Marincin, Musil and even Gernat on the Oilers list of d prospects. Moreover if the point of the exercise is to draft Murray or Dumba then he is even further down the list.

The Oilers would want Hamonic. The Isles would then pass.

You can't say he's regressed if you haven't watched him.

I mean being named an AHL all-star isn't really regressing.

You'd think that Eklund would be smart enough to at least build some credibility to his rumours by making them believable, thus why make a bogus rumour even more complicated by saying there is a 3rd team involved (unless its just minor deals to ensure a certain player is still there at 4).

Either way, wouldn't this make a little more sense after the combine when teams have had their final meetings and interviewed the players they want?

Whatever, I'll bite for the sake of playing along.....

To NYI: 1st overall, Gagner

To EDM: 4th overall, NYI 2013 1st

I'm guessing the asking price would be Tavares or 4th + Hamonic.

C'mon buddy

Let's not start the Gagner to LI fantasy some Oiler fans have.

and with Snow telling the press he's sticking to his youth movement,there isn't a chance in hell Snow trades his 2013 1st.Snow knows better then fans, that his weak blueline will be very young next season.

Yes.Snow and the Isles are looking to trade 21 Tavares,coming off an 81 pt season and signed to team friendly,6 yr extension.

And they've soured on 22 yr old Harmonic.He's developing into Weberlite,instead of a notch above Weber.

Hamonic is what Ryan Murray hopes to become.

In his defense (the poster you quoted), he said the asking price is likely that. He didn't suggest that the Isles would offer that. Though personally I don't think Edmonton would be crazy enough to ask for Tavares. The second one they might throw out there as a first offer in a negotiation, however, just to see if Snow bites.

The #4, the #34, and a good prospect will certainly move them up.
