It just makes Edmonton's decision not to loan him to Germany for the WJC's look even dumber.

His junior club (Prince Albert) is pretty terrible & already trade the only player worth damn in Morrissey so I would imagine he'll be possibly moved in the WHL as well.

I would have opted for "24" or perhaps a #24 from Flyers past such as Derrick Smith.

Seriously, **** the Oilers. I honestly hope Draisaitl asks for a trade at some point. No player should be playing under that kind of management.

This is why they shouldn't get McEichel. They're gonna ruin one of them. How can they be so incompetent?

Kelowna has to dump an import, he's playing in the WJC, that's why the trade can't be done yet.

That's before my time, Derrick Smith left the Flyers before I was even born.

I was born in March of 1993, so the earliest Flyers I can remember are Primeau, Recchi and Leclair... and even that's pretty hazy.

It is unlikely that they get McDavid. Though it is gonna be disappointing seeing the best American forward prospect in years get ruined.

How's it unlikely? They have the best odds of landing the #1 pick currently (I highly doubt that changes by season's end).

They may indeed lose the lottery when all is said & done but tough to say it's unlikely they'll land the #1 pick.

20% at best, seems unlikely to me. Stop being so argumentative.

I guess you're right since, although they have the best chance of any team, there's an 80% chance someone other than them get's it.

We'll see, it wouldn't shock me either way.

It sucks they couldn't fully implement the changes of the lottery system this year with the top 3 picks being up for grabs like the NBA. It should be a good thing for the league going forward since the parity in the NHL is light years beyond the NBA.

All you have to do is finish last and you guarantee yourself a franchise player.

So that means it is probably more likely we get McDavid than Eichel.

Some are saying they gave a choice if he wanted to go to worlds. How is is his call what's best for his development

What a **** show. Like some said earlier, would love their top pick to refuse to play.

Their top pick from this past draft Leon Draisaitl has been struggling badly in the NHL this year. He really shouldn't have made the cut past the 9 game tryout.

It was speculated by most that he probably should have been loaned to Germany for the WJC's prior to the tournament to at least gain some confidence since he was playing awful but Edmonton declined to do so. We're a couple of games into the tournament & now they're deciding to send him back juniors. So if they did this week's ago he likely would have been playing in it. Germany would have faired a better chance of not getting relegated out of the top division with him so I would imagine they're not too happy right now.
