Brayden Schenn to the Oilers?

Oilers need size, grit and a good second line C, and Brayden Schenn would be perfect. What would it take?

Wouldn't want to part with Hall, Eberle or RNH.

Maybe a deal involving Yakupov?

Before I get flamed by fellow Oilers fans, Yakupov is the sexier player and may put up more points, but we have winger depth, and Brayden Schenn would compliment RNH perfectly as a 2C.

Saying Schenn has good size when he is 6-1 and 190? in the nhl that is almost average size

Hell no from the Flyers POV.

Schultz, but Oiler would need to add something to that also, but I don't know what that + would be.

Flyers are not moving Schenn also.

The point is that Schenn provides grit and somewhat adds toughness to Edmontons top 6, he at least hits compared to Gagner. I'm sure Schenn hasn't finished filling out either.

I feel like these two teams aren't good trading partners currently since both need defense...

both these teams are loaded with youth and scoring.

There really isn't anyone on the Oilers that interest me outside the big three that you named. And before the other Oilers fans come in here, we don't want Gagner, or Horcoff, or Hemsky.

RNH will be the closest thing to Gretzky fans will get to experience and you're telling me people think Couturier is better? Based on what? Scoring against Malkin who isn't supposed to play defense?

I think it's going to be a lot closer than you think. You will see two players brought along in two extremely different ways. One will receive a ton of power play time and even strength time, while Couts is being eased along. Couts has all the potential to become a #1 center in this league, he really just hasn't had the opportunity to display it on a stacked offensive team. He will play 13-15 minutes probably this year, unlike RNH who will get 17-18. Wait 2 or 3 years, they both will be putting up the same numbers most likely, while both playing pretty damn good defense.

Did you really just compare Gretzky and RNH?? Really.

Schenn is extremely overrated. I wouldn't trade Yakupov for Schenn right now. If Yakupov turns into a superstar in a couple of years the Oilers would be able to get way more for him, that is if they feel like they want to trade a young superstar winger.

Stopping Malkin from scoring against him, is what it's based on. Most (all?) of his points came on the power play when he wasn't on the ice.
And you can't be serious about the Gretzky comparison.

A lot of people do. Not saying he's as good, but his playing style/vision is very similar.

RNH > Couturier. not close. imo of course

I haven't seen that comparison before, but before we throw Gretzky out there, he should maybe eclipse Crosby first. If Edmonton fans really think they have a new Gretzky on their hands, they are in for a huge disappointment.

When you think of size, you really don't think of Schenn, he's about the same size as RNH. Not a big fan of his and as a Oiler fan I think the Oilers can do better, have no problem trading Yakupov though

Unless Yakupov is coming back I'm not interested.

And even though Schenn might be "average" in terms of height/weight, he's more gritty than any of the Oilers top young guns; and it's not even close.

It's not that any Oiler fan thinks he's another Gretzky, he just plays the same style and kinda looks like him. I've heard it mentioned many times and it's true, he kinda does.

I just think comparing him in any fashion to the greatest hockey player to ever walk this fine earth is a mistake, even if it is he just looks like him.

Just my opinion of course, but I think in 2-3 years people will see the difference between Couts and RNH isn't as great as some seem to think.

I personally think he's much better then Huberdeau and if the draft was held today he would likely go 3rd but I believe RNH to be quite a few steps ahead of him. Couturier has a wide range of skills that helped him succeed in juniors but I don't believe that will translate well into the NHL unless he specifically focuses on one part of his game. 2-way centers are prized for sure, but tend to lack in production. I see him settling in as a 2nd or 3rd line center. That is not a bad thing either, but due to the nature of his game he will likely excel more in "shutting down" the opposing top line while putting up some good numbers as well then being tasked with generating offense as a #1 center. Unless you want to make the bold claim of comparing him to Bergeron?

Compared to RNH who has incredible natural talent and focused on the offensive side of the game rather than a jack of all trades approach Couturier has, RNH has not only extreme talent and Gretzky-like vision but is in the perfect environment for his talents to shine. At the end of the day, having more points on the scoreboard is what wins hockey games and in my mind there is no doubt RNH will outscore Couturier heavily.
