Florida would decline, Huberdeau is pretty much untouchable right now.

It would have to include the 2020 1st round pick (instead of the 2022 2nd). It also depends on the direction Florida goes if they don't make the playoffs/don't have a deep run. The thought of an Ekblad - Nurse top 2 is interesting for Florida, though

What makes you think he's perfect for McDavid? McDavid seems to works best with bigger guys who can win board battles and create space by physicality - although we've never really seen him with quick, high-skill types.

the perfect winger for EDM is Tatar. and it would only cost a 1st and JP probably.

He has that with Kassian on the RW. I thought having a elite skilled winger on the other side would complement the whole line

Tatar would be nice too but I am not giving up a first for a player with no term.

I think he'd also have to be good defensively and have a good shot to be the perfect compliment. Someone like Rakell maybe? Ehlers?

I guess I'm going back to how Jari Kurri complimented Gretzky.

still has one more season on a very reasonable contract.
he isn't a rental, this one would be a hockey trade.

he has scored 20 goals in everyone full season he has played pro except for his rookie year...he scored 19.
ok i just talked myself out of the deal haha NO DEAL
