Pettersson is more raw than McDavid was when he came into the league.

 

And he STILL put up 10 goals in 10 games. 

 

EP40 is here for life!!!

Flame away, but I would.  We can hate the Oilers all we want, but still he's 21 and has 2 Ted Lindsay, 2 Art Ross and 1 Hart and he hasn't even peaked yet.

 

If Pettersson reaches the level of McDavid, his next contract would probably be 15M$ with the increasing cap (especially with Vegas' success and now Seattle coming up).  If Pettersson reaches 90% of the level of McDavid, he'll still make more than Eichel and his 10M$.

 

Sooner or later we will have to pay him.

So Vancouver finally gets some exciting players into the lineup. And fans want to trade them. 

 

Maybe just get NHL19, or a set of hockey cards then you can trade to hearts content.

Some clearly don't like holding onto their cards and are only happy when the cards are against the wall, and you're flicking other cards to trade them.

sigh...............I guess if I had to, I would sell high on Hutton for McDavid, sure I would..

 

 

 

Yes, I know you are talking about Pettey, this is a 150% absolute no way no how non starter if you are the brass in Edmonton right now.

this is like asking me if I would trade my wife for a victoria secret super model.  IT aint never gonna happen, and I dont even want to think about it.

 

stop having these 'evil' thoughts and enjoy Pettie...

As great as EP is and will be, yes I would.  McJesus's offensive skill is almost one of a kind.  That cap would be hard to swallow though.

I think for cap reasons alone I say no. Petey is on his ELC for 2 more years after this season. He is producing at a insane rate. It's hard to say no. McDavid is absolutely unreal, but early on so has Petey. Petey is our guy. Hopefully for a very, very long time.

Is this a response to my original post? Because it's off the mark, if so.

 

The point was to say we have a gifted young player that's so special, there's no one in the league I'd swap him for. & I really like watching McD play, certainly acknowledging the guy's a legit superstar.

No way.  I haven't seen a young prospect elevate the play of bad linemates to this degree since Super Mario.

For sure. Pettersson is looking like he will be our franchise center for many years. McDavid is already the best offensive player in hockey and likely will be for many years. I just got my Pettersson jersey, my first jersey since I got my bertuzzi orca 3rd back when I was young, but if they trade was offered I would be thrilled. I love Petty, but McDavid is McDavid.
