Went with Klefbom. His good looks was the deciding factor for me. More marketable.

Voted Nurse because if he reaches his potential, he'll be better than other dman on this list.

I say Smid. Absolute warrior and a rock-solid defenseman.

I voted gagner
So you would take Gagner over Connor McDavid?

Smid is arguably our best dman.

Gagner isnt our best anything.

I put Klef. Why pick a below average 2nd line center who is about to be overpaid.

Funny (off-topic) story regarding NHL injury classifications. A guy I grew up with used to play in the NHL - after he had a vasectomy, he was listed as having a "lower body injury".

Darnell Nurse. Drafted to be a top pairing shut down defenseman. He is exactly what this team lacks, what this team needs, and is thus the 6th most valuable player to this franchise right now.

Gagner is an expendable player, because Grabovski and other potential 2nd line centers can be readily had on the market. Smid is a tremendous player but I think will be bested by Nurse. Klefbom also shows great promise, but again may not ever be the player that Darnell Nurse projects to be.

Are you for real? nhl players get the flu and spread it quickly because they share same air in air planes and all are within 50 feet of each other in a locker room.

Well OP asks who would fetch the most in a trade, so there's nothing wrong with including prospects.

Off of this list though, it's between Smid, Gagner, and Petry.

Gagner probably takes the cake as a 2C who can generate offense and is still getting better (he's 23) is appealing to almost anyone. I like Smid more though.

A rare view that actually looks at what is inherent in the question of value.

There can be no doubt that Gagner is more valuable at this moment. I do think Gagner would elicit higher offer prices and this being fairly standard for offensive playres that can produce and play different lines and roles. Only shutdown D command optimal value. WE don't have any shutdown D.

If its solely on contributions next year I would have voted Smid, but I see this as long-term which makes it Klefbom for me. Possesses a Seabrook/OEL skillset and potential. Just hoping he gets there.

In terms of pure ability/skill, he deserves a vote. In terms of processing the game, he should be folding towels.

Why DD ? Yes his save % is good . Why ? because team shoot lots on him from low chance scoring areas because it is his MO to give up soft goals . I bet his save % would be 20 points lower if teams did not shoot from bad angles or far out waitiing for him to let in a soft goal . I like DD but he has to be better

Doubt Gagner is an Oiler next season and if he still is, the fans are going to hate the price tag he comes with.

Curious why this poll had such a later closing date than the 1st 5 ?

Dubnyk is our best goalie, guess hes more valuable than either of them by that logic.

I voted Gagner because I think he would get us the most value in a trade.

I would vote gagner cuz Kbombs not an oiler yet, and Smid just lays down on the ice in the slot when the opposing team breaks in on a rush.. (something the coaches have been trying to tell him not to do for a while but he always does it still... seems kinda uncoachable)

It was much closer so I left it open for 3 days

I'll probably have to do it again for the next poll
