I could live with MDZ for 50% Hemsky and a 1st like RB said. I just have to wonder why Edmonton would do that
MDZ stretch passes to Hall Eberle and Yakupov, though. Man, he could be like 60 points -40 player.

Same thing with their top prospects. If they want Del Zotto,they should be prepared to give some asset with value up. Sather isn't giving up Del Zotto for a rental or for some spare parts. What is Edmonton's best asset besides their roster players and top prospects like Nurse and Klefbom? The pick. Edmonton doesn't need another top pick. Edmonton gets a 23/24 year old D to go along with Schultz. They have Klefbom and Nurse waiting in the wings.

EDM doesn't need a dman like MDZ, we need a dman like McDonnagh and you guys are not going to trade him away. We would not give up our 1st round pick for MDZ, we don't need a player like him we need a more all around dman with size and a bit of a nasty to him.
