EDM-WSH blockbuster

Two struggling teams that need a shake-up. Obviously Backstrom's a valuable asset but I don't see WSH getting much in return for an over-paid Ovy/Green.

To Washington:
Jordan Eberle
Sam Gagner
Magnus Paajarvi
EDM 2nd

To Edmonton:
Nicklas Backstrom
Troy Brouwer

Ovechkin-Ribeiro-Eberle
Ward-Gagner-Fehr (Laich takes over LW when he returns)
MPS-Perreault-Chimera

Hall-Backstrom-Yakupov
Brouwer-RNH-Hemsky

Massive overpayment by Oilers.
I wouldn't even trade Eberle straight up for Backstrom.
I like Backstrom as a player but he disappears way too often for a player of his caliber.

Doesn't really make a lot of sense for Washington.

Swap out Eberle with Hemmer.

Fiddle with the pick.

May be on to something at that point.

No way. We need our #1C way more than another young winger when we have Kuznetsov and Forsberg coming up.

I like it value-wise but we don't have a guy to replace Nick.

What's interesting about Nick is that he 'disappears', then you look at the scoreboard... and he has two assists to his name. He's quietky making things happen.

As a fan of neither team, I agree with this guy. #1 Cs are a lot harder to find and are more important than upgrading the wing. Especially since longterm there's no reason to think Washington is hurting on the wing anyways.

Bad deal for Washington, solid deal for Edmonton since it would give them two legitimate 1st line Centres while still keeping Hall/Yakupov to ride shotgun, assuming neither RNH or Backstrom have injuries derail their careers.

If I'm the Caps I find a way to move Ovechkin before trading Backstrom.

Washington wins this deal by a landslide. EBerle still is the best layer in this trade

McPhee would never even think about proposing this trade in the first place.

I'd love to hear someone try to substantiate either of those claims.

Not close. Once Oilers start focusing on winning they'll see firsthand how important and how tough to get established high end two-way centers are.

You cannot be from Edmonton, i mean common you and everyone else know this is a massive overpayment, take out atleast Gagner then its realistic from an oilers standpoint. Gagner is still pretty young and is kicking *** this season, Eberle put up a 70+ point season last year and is still very young, MPS is young and will get better, and then you add a 2nd?.... Dont get me wrong Backstrom is a good player but he is not that good even with Brouwer added there is no reason for the oil to do this.

Not a fan of either team. I wouldn't do this if I were Washington.

Nice to see Eberle in this proposal. There's been enough Gagner+Pääjärvi+2nd proposals.
