I'm certain that Carolina would prefer to upgrade their forward group then draft 29th, a player who likely doesn't help them for 2-3 years if ever. I'm sure our offer could be beaten by other teams for that 1st round pick but usually when you make a proposal you don't consider what all 30 teams may be willing to offer. I seriously don't get the smartass comments? You can simply just say "hey man, don't think these trades work because of x,y,z"...what are you 12? Wow someone is sensitive. I'll put it in a way that won't hurt your feelings this time. Your value is way off. Edmonton isn't so urgent to dump Lucic that they would serve up the 8th and 38th pick on a nice silver platter. The 8th pick is absolutely massive for the Oilers. McDavid and Draisaitl are in desperate need of some quality line mates and Edmonton is in prime position to add a highly skilled forward for their core. It makes ZERO sense for them to trade those picks for an aging, injury prone centre. McDavid is 22 and Drai is 23. How does 30 year old Brandon Sutter work long term for the Oilers? If you were the Canucks, would you trade Eriksson, 10thOA and 40thOA for Phillip Danault? Of course not. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
