Edm-Nyi (blockbuster)

I know this wouldn't happen but I want to get people's opinions on it.

To Islanders

RNH
Jordan Eberle
Darnel Nurse
2014 1st Rounder

To Oilers

John Tavares

Why Oilers do this?

Could you imagine JT and Hall together, INSANE.

Why Islanders does this?

They get a great return for JT and RNH can take over JT's #1 center position and they get a top 5 draft pick to keep building the team into an unstoppable force.

Neither team does this. EDM gets set back YEARS in their re-build and the Islanders won't trade the face of their franchise.

Any and all Tavares trade proposals are exercises in futility.

Yes. Hall and Tavares together would be great.

Nets doubled the value of their franchise in two years, after the Brooklyn move.Wang has hired the same Barclays exec, who oversaw the Nets success. Wang wants to copy the Nets.

The Vanek trade was made with an eye towards the Brooklyn move.Wang would never greenlight a trade of his franchise player. So Tavares to Edmonton is out.

But, since you want to see Hall+ Tavares team up, here is a counter proposal:

Grabner+ Pulock+ 2015 1st for Hall.
Okposo+2014 1st+Hickey for Hall.

Look at dem players.

Horrible for Oilers - and I am a huge Tavares fan.

Don't take this as saying NYI would make the trade, because JT is going nowhere.

Such a counterproductive deal for the Oilers though. "Just make holes everywhere else, because we have the assets to offer a huge deal for one of the league best".

Neither team would do this. The value for the Oilers is terrible and the Iskes aren't trading Tavares.

I would not give up that much for Tavares. I also see that Islanders won't do that trade either.

Hahah your way off base. When I say impact I'm talking even off the ice so relax. Off course that package is huge and has three good toug players but TAvares is a star that you can market as the face of a franchise esspecially with the move to Brooklyn. Take it easy there partner.

Rangers fan here.

Islanders don't do this at all.

Hall++ for Tavares MAYBE to think about it.

But for JT, probably the most underrated player playing on the best contract is going to net a whole hell a lot more than Eberle, an unproven prospect and a 1st (even if it is 1st overall)

didn't see RNH in there.

yeah, that would be tough to pass on.

Wow not even sure who to quote. The stupidity in this thread is making me speechless...

Tavares has gone from one of the best players in the league that is super underrated to one of the best players in the league that is super overrated...

I can see why the Islanders would not want to part with Tavares but for RNH, Ebs, Nurse AND the Oil first Snow would pull that trigger so fast that it would blow your minds and run away laughing.

I think the islanders jump all over this.We all know how good Tavares but this is a huge overpayment for Tavares.I don't believe that the Oilers would even consider this.

No, you are so far off, Tavares is a top 5 player in the league right now, at the ripe old age of 23, he is the Islanders heart and soul, both on and off the ice. He is the reason anyone watches the Islanders, sorry 2 unproven assets, even with Eberle and RNH will not get JT moved. Right now JT is far superior to this package, sure the 4 oilers could turn into star players, but they could bust.

It's not the the value that is the problem. If anything the oilers giving up too much. It's marketability. Your not gonna tell fans coming to Brooklyn in a new arena in the New York market. " come see Eberle and okposo and RNH and Strome". This trade pretty much makes us the oilers east. On the other people but NYI tickets just to see TAvares play. He i the home grown star of the NYI captain and face d the franchise. You could put his face on billboards in NY and out slide if Barclays Center. That's why the isles don't make this trade. The oilers have 3 1st overalls and are still in the same boat as before. Conversely the NYI are jot doin as well a we thought so trading out leader is not an option. Also if you want Vanek to resign you need to pitch TAvares as a selling point. Ohh and I all that is not enough he makes less money than RNH and Eberle lol

There's more of a chance of the Islanders getting Hall than the Oilers getting Tavares.

The OP offers up two players who will contribute now: Eberle+ RNH. I would rather have Tavares at #1 center then RNH. Isles are pulling out all their stops to keep the Vanek-Tavares-Okposo line together.

I am not gonna debate where Nurse would rank among Reinhart/Pulock/Hamonic/Hickey/DeHann/Pokka/Pelech/Pedan/Mayfield. I'll just leave it at the isles want to give their own kids a chance to win nhl jobs.

Oilers offer a lot of quality? Yes. Does Wang headed to Brooklyn bite on Eberle+RNH and a couple of unknowns? I doubt it.
