Why Edmonton does this : addresses their need for a goaltender and a top 4 dman as well as adding a

physical presence in Kassian and gives them an additional first round pick to draft Ilya Samsonov ahead of the Sabres at 24.

Draisaitl will not move for that offer. Let's try this:

Lack + 23


16 and 57

We get to move up a tier in talent and get a 2nd rounder for Lack.

As has been reported, Benning wants a 2nd rounder for Lack....

Short of a suddenly quick bidding war, there's no way that Vancouver gets to what amounts to a freebie in moving up 7 spots in the 1st round.

If EDM gets Lack outside of a bidding war and VAN gets offered their #33, Benning should take that pick and run with it.
