As long as Tambo is around there isn't much of a chance of the 1st being traded. Would have to be crazy to trade your 2013 1st.

I would either trade it, or consider trading one of Edmonton's primary forward assets (RNH, Hall, Yakupov, Eberle) for defensive help and maybe nab a goalie prospect somewhere. The organization is too top heavy with forwards. Spreading it out with other players that can develop with the core will help to ensure a solid build.

Tambellini and his staff have repeatedly stated that they have faith in the group that they have drafted and would like them to continue to grow together. The idea would be that trading the high 1st round pick would send a signal to the troops that the rebuild is over and that it is time to start competing. Trading the pick could yeild a top asset in their prime from a team entering a rebuild phase who could try to rally the youngsters.

OR

Would you take the best player available in the draft and continue on the line Edmonton has been the past few years?
They should of last year they are no better off this year and will not be better off until we make some trades and pick up HELP

We'll be fine without trading any of the high end kids. After we win the lottery this year and pick up Jones, we'll have all the kids plus Jones, Schultz, Klefbom and Petry...Add Smid and Fistric to that or one of the other kids in Musil, Marincin, Gernat, etc..and things will work out.....

If the deal is right and makes the team better a Gm has to entertain all trades

No.

The oilers are no where close to being competitive. Trading the first for some vetran will literally do nothing. Keep the pick and just give it time.

There is no way they trade this years 1st, it goes against everything they have been trying to force feed to Oil fans.

for
Klefborn, Marancin, Gernat, Potter + the Oilers' 2013 1st.

Oilers get balanced top pair signed reasonably thru next year, with first crack to renew
2 guys for bottom depth. Get a first for next year.

Rangers get three high picks at D, including needed righties.
Also get a high pick.
Also get some cap relief.
There is no way the Oilers do this. Look at the age profile of the team and who you are offering up. Girardi has one year left and Staal has two. Staal is a major risk to leave, with Carolina being the obvious destination. The Rangers 2014 1st is likely not even on the roster until the 2017-2018 season.

Klefbom fits the Oilers age profile perfectly. He will be on his ELC and is 7 years from UFA status.

The Oilers 1st is very valuable to the team this year. They seem to be looking at adding one of the big centers, something the team needs.

Both of these are potential long term key components. You are offering a temporay fix that is in direct contrast to the way the team is being built.

Likely. If it means they can land a big bodied, skillful power forward that can play top 6.

Everyone cites goaltending and the blueline as issues for the Oilers. They're not wrong.

But watching the team this year, it's apparent that all that firepower that's been accumulated is moot unless they can find solid balance up front. The blueline could still develop, and their performance is of course linked to Dubnyk's performance, which has been, at times this year pretty solid.

Thus, the priority is a big winger. Even if the pick is high enough to grab Jones or McKinnon, it won't be enough to pull the likes of Lucic out of Boston. But I'm talking more than a re-signed Clowe.

I think if its the 1st or 2nd its enough to get Lucic.

Not worth it, Dubnyk is average... Really doubt they'd get a big enough upgrade to make it worth losing a first.

Look what Colorado got last year.
