Seriously,
Edmonton have so many young guys they could trade one for one of our D and +.
How about Diaz + Bourque + 2st for Yakupov

Hawks would move Hossa for the same reason we shouldn't take him - his contract.

Would you trade Galchenyuk for Belov, Ryan Jones and a 2nd?

I didn't think so.

A veteran and a reliable D-man would help the Oilers a lot, actually.

5th D and bottom 6 player for a first overall?

You're kidding right?

It's not because him and his team stuggles for 1 quarter of a season means that Edmonton will trade for scraps.

agreed but I didn't see either in that proposal. Bourque is a flake, hardly a leader and Diaz is a bottom pair D-man when they need top 4 help.

Bourque isn't a veteran?

And Diaz would crack the top-4 of the Oilers easy.

I agree, PK is as close to an untouchable as we have

Beaulieu is just one piece and isn't showing all that much, while I do think he'll end up in the NHL. Leblanc has 3rd line upside at best. And you can trade a 1st or a 2nd from time to time without jeopardizing the future that much. The team's young core is allready in the NHL. Adding only one good young player every 2 years would be enough if Bergevin is able to fill the holes with useful role players, no matter their age.
Two former mid 1st round picks, a 1st round pick in itself, and a 2nd round pick. This isn't exaggeration this is fact. When you have a GM specifically stating he isn't going to mortgage the future for now, and he trades any of these assets especially in combination for a pending UFA or an older more proven player, you're for sure potentially jeopardizing the future.

Also I think it's a little too early to write-off Leblanc as a 3rd liner at best, while I don't disagree with you it's still a little too early. I sure hope our GM isn't basing his trading on that type of mentality, that's how you lose trades.

When we got Bournival people never thought he'd break the 4th line and that O'Byrne would be a stud. People thought Pacioretty was a bust when he wasn't producing early on in his career. Others wanted Plekanec dealt after one bad year. Point is although a player like Leblanc or Beaulieu may seem tradeable right now, doesn't mean in 1 year the trade will look good.

For a GM who preaches building from within I expect better than dealing away former 1st rounders, 1st and 2nd rounders, etc. It's bad enough we dealt Kristo away, but we'll see how that one plays out.

I clarified before I saw your post. Bourque is a veteran in name only, he's not a leader nor is he reliable or consistent. And lol at Diaz - just bc their D is so bad that he'd be top 4 for them says nothing. They need a legit top 4, not scraps.

The Fourth Period? Lmao. That site is a joke. He has less credibility than Eklund. David Pagnotta is a habs fan and all his habs rumors come from speculation from this site.

He's certainly more consistent in his effort and defensively reliable than 3/4th of the Oiler's forward. He fill a top-line spot in order to give more sheltered minutes to the younger and high-potential forwards in the Oiler's lineup.

He's the perfect example of what the Oilers have been missing in term of offensive role player. They need someone who can bite the bullet when asked to, take the hard assignments without turning into a liability. Edmonton's problem isn't about securing a star forward!
