statman1956 Posted June 25, 2015 Share Posted June 25, 2015 To Edm: Lack, Hamhuis, Kassian and the 23 pick OA To Van: Draisaitl, Picks 33 & 57 and a conditional pick in 2016 5th round becomes a 3 if Hamhuis or Lack resign a 2nd if both do. 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. Why Vancouver does this : Get a high end offensive talent in Draisaitl who instantly becomes their top prospect as well as gaining additional draft picks and creates cap room and room on the roster to get younger.
