Oilers and NJD

Recommended Posts

Since NJD are willing to trade their sixth overall pick for scoring help and Oilers needing defensemen would this deal work for both teams?

To Oilers

2015 1st round pick (sixth overall)

Damon Severson


Oilers 1st round pick (16th overall)

Jordan Eberle

Oilers draft Mcdavid with their first overall and then draft a defensemen with their 6th overall pick

In terms of D prospect oilers aren't really hurting to bad, Nurse is going to be a stud, Shultz and Klefbom are also going to be be top 4 guys. This problem with oilers D is that they took longer to develop than their first overalls. By not doing this deal they keep eberle (a top line forward) and they will still get to draft a strong player at #16 or use it to pick up a goalie.

Then in 2 or 3 years when McDavid and Leon are NHL impact players then can afford to move out RNH to acquire an already developed top 2 D.

Highly doubt Edmonton would move one of the few sure things on their roster in Ebbs just to move up 10 spots and get Damon.

Maybe Ebbs for Larsson + 2nd? Oil need big-minute D-men, and they can probably play Adam behind Mark Fayne to shelter him somewhat until he develops into a stable top-4 guy (I'm presuming Yak keeps developing, btw). Jersey gets a top line right wing.
