Let’s just say that it is highly unlikely that the Oilers trade down to the fourth position. Nothing would infuriate fans more than yet another trade with the Flames. Despite being our biggest rival, the Oilers have made two trades over the last few years with them (Steve Staios, Ladislav Smid).

CALGARY—Joe Colborne, 4th Overall
EDMONTON—Sam Gagner, 3rd Overall

WILL IT HAPPEN? Not a chance.

    how is tanev a question mark…… tanev would be edmontons best defenceman. The canucks would not accept this trade. They might if it was garrison instead of tanev. But kesler would never want to move to edmonton anyways and he has NTC so pointless proposal

    • Dave Mallett

      I would argue that Tanev would be a third pairing defenceman on any team. The Oilers can’t be slotting 3rd pairing guys in top 2 positions anymore. Kesler is the only player Edmonton would sacrifice all of that for, hence my proposal. And NTC don’t mean much if both sides come to an understanding.
