    I didn't even read this but I can, with 10000% certainty, say NO. This does not get McDavid. Nothing gets McDavid. Unless you can create a clone of McDavid that never gets hurt and doesn't age, you do not have the assets to trade for McDavid.

    We lost the lottery . Let it go . No one was more disappointed than McDavid . Wish I had a picture of the look on his face when they announced Edmonton won the Lottery. It would take too much to get him at this point and it would gut the team and the make us unable to put talent around him. . Takes more than one great player as Edmonton has learned

    No. You would need Mcdavid to demand a trade, and then it would start with eichel or dahlin, but not both. The package that you offered has holes in it- Reinhart is an underrated nice player that is unfortunately going to get 8 plus million next summer. Montour is a nice rhd that is better offensively than defensively, I may be off here- but cozens is probably an above average #2c on a good team. And while normally you are safe to short the market on the sabres, future first round picks are a risk. That's an offer that has lots of quality but it's missing the star player to attempt to offset losing a generational center. Just my two cents though.

    This is the most in depth comment of all time. All for it.

    No chance. Eichel would have to come back in any package offered by Buff. Eichel and Dahlin maybe.

    Dahlin, middlestadt, reinhart, maybe a 1st or a decent prospect. That's what I would ask If I was the oilers
