No deal to be made here I don't think.




*Many Ottawa fans don't want to move Smith at all for the record.
Basically what I wanted to say. Not interested in picks/bottom 6 prospects for Smith.

You aren't seriously comparing the two I hope?

Smith > Jones
Zibanejad > Klefbom

Zack could be the best third line center in the game in 5 years. A physical 20/20 guy, good at faceoffs, and a great middle weight fighter is the type of player you win cups with. He's just not consistent enough yet.

Sweet niblets say what?

Also, Klefbom is overrated. No way the Sens add to Smith for him. Future 3rd pair D at best.

Smith is an NHL player with elite 3rd liner potential. You're not getting him for a 3rd. Paul Gaustad got 20th overall as a rental.

probably stats,but i doubt a lot of oilers fans watch him i know i didn't, as a huge edmonton and more sens fan i can say there is nothing to trade between these teams.

Don't want to move him for a 2nd either. He's a lot better than you think, I think.

I'd add to Smith to get Klefbom without question. I'm surprised you say that. I'd probably think about adding the 15th overall.

That's steep. Klefbom has limited upside. Maybe 3rd pair at best is harsh at this point, but he has limited skill. Smith is proven, Klefbom is far from it. That's why we shouldn't add imo.

Wow... just no. I wouldn't do the pick for Klefbom, let alone add Smith.

Fair enough, probably a bit of overkill there, but Klefbom has a lot of talent. I think there is probably some underrating going on here.

So Edmontons top rated prospect has third pairing potential at best? Based on all the times you've watched him over in Sweden? the WJC when he was named to the all-star team? or any credible source that says completely opposite?

Ryan Jones is much more proven than Zack Smith so hand over Zibanejad(unproven).....yeeeesh

Agree to disagree I guess. I do think Klefbom is a nice prospect, but whoever we draft at 15 I think is likely to be as good or better of a prospect, given the D depth in the draft.

I might be slightly blinded by how well he played at the WJC, but I was salivating at the thought of him on our blueline. Thought he would slip in seamlessly and be an impact 2nd pairing guy.

I would love that, but I just don't get the feeling he's quite ready for the show yet, just a feeling though.

how did Klefbom end up in this thread? I guess the Sens have a weak prospect pool of defenceman at the moment, should have kept Runblad.

Rundblad was traded for Turris - who was a huge part of us making the playoffs last year. So perhaps Bryan Murray knew what he was doing.

Yup, Rundblad should be a good player but he was not ready for the NHL. Turris was a very capable 2nd line center for us this year. If we had kept Rundblad, we'd still be looking for #2 C instead of a #3-4 D.

I don't know, I think I'd move him to Edmonton for the 32nd. We could really use a second round pick, and with all these new Nash to Ottawa rumours that involve Robin Lehner, I think drafting a goalie there would be very logical.

I was kind of hoping Bryan Murray could swing that Smith+ for Hjalmarsson deal though.

Step aside Turris. It seems Smith has become the most overrated Oiler.

I dont even need to look up your post history to know that you bash every Oiler player mentioned.
You would probably argue that Z.Smith is worth more than Eberle because Smith is an elite 3rd liner and Eberle will be looking for a huge pay day after his ELC....Actually I'm positive
