Oilers - Big Changes

Team: 2019-20 Edmonton Oilers
Team Explanation
Ottawa trade can be made with anyone.
Ehlers had a down year, but has proven how good he is. This would help Winnipegs cap issues and would give Edmonton a high level winger.
Toronto trades gives leafs more stability on the back end and gives EDM one of the fastest wingers in the league, who can score, defend and play on McDavids wing, a 2nd rounder and Brown as a solid 2 way forward.

This team still has holes. But they would be better off with this line up.

thoughts? (Line up will be off, as I am not a EDM follower)

That Toronto trade is horrible for Edmonton. Bouchard is untouchable imo.

Fair! He is their top D Prospect for sure. Would be hard to part with. They are getting quality in Kap as well. I will re-think/re-work it a bit.

Adjusted the trade -

Kap + Brown for Caleb Jones + Benning + 2020 second. Better?! Thoughts?

Edmonton and Toronto have similar problems: at or over the cap ceiling with a big-cap-hit player that, to put it charitably, isn’t contributing significantly – Milan Lucic and Patrick Marleau, respectively. So an appreciable segment of the teams’ fan bases solves this problem by blithely trading away the financial drag for a 7th-round draft pick, usually aided by some incentives like real players or higher draft picks. News flash: both players have absolute NMC’s, so they aren’t going anywhere, and anyway, solving the cap problem that way is, if not “cheating,” chickening out on actually addressing it head-on. To put it another way, subtract Marleau’s $6.25M or Lucic’s $6M from the payroll and any idiot can slide under the cap limit. The fun, and admirable effort, is in avoiding the easy way out.

It looks like Lucic being worth 1st round pick when you continue reading what else is being sent to Ottawa with him.
