NHL.com Commentsection EDM-BUF

Just a fun Buffalo/Edmonton trade thought. Miller+Ott+Pysyk for Yakapov+#7+2014 1st+Teemu Hartikainen. Any thoughts?

I Saw this on the thread "Oilers would consider dealing pick" Thread. THe comment was posted 9 days ago from today by the user FrConn7-11-14 yes he's a buffalo fan.

I miss how we go from willing to move the #7 pick, to this outrageous deal. Why would Edmonton deal Yakapov a year after taking him #1 overall?

This would never happen and I don't see Buffalo moving Ott.

If this trade happened I'd start to believe in a higher power. Pysyk would be great for Edmonton as he will be a strong, positional two-way top 4 defender for a long time, that they'd want him makes sense. Ott and Miller also fit on the ice. That's about all I can say in favor of it from the Edmonton perspective because this would be a disastrous trade for them.

Miller's value wouldn't fetch either Yakupov or #7 on its own. Maybe his value would fetch next year's 1st if Edmonton believes they'll be a playoff team and that they can resign him. But that would mean Ott+Pysyk are returning #7 this year, Yakupov, and Hartikainen. Ridiculous.

I'd miss Pysyk as I've been pencilling him into our long-term top 4 since his post-draft juniors season. I love Ott as well and I'm not even much a Yakupov fan, but this would easily be the best trade Buffalo's ever made in immediate analysis.

Not a chance of it happening, of course. I'd love to get #7 though, as between #7 and #8 we'd be guaranteed two strong picks at the tail end of the draft's cream. If Edmonton were goaltender-desperate enough to do that for Miller (at half salary)+, then I'd chalk that up as great success enough.
