I would say fair, and good for Yzerman to get picks

It's not terrible for either team. Feel like Detroit could've got more. Pretty even but probably a slight edge to the Oilers.

Athanasiou could score 60-70 points with McDavid ... I said "could" not "will".

The speed of AA and McDavid! I think EDM got a good one here, but it's closer to a fair deal.

Detroit wins this simply because they got away from Athanasiou. Detroit does better the rest of the way than they did so far this year.

Oilers get a guy I said months ago should be on their radar. Return feels about right too. Not too shabby. Like the deal for both sides.
Will be fun to see AA and McDavid on a line together. Crazy fast players.

I would say this is a fair trade. If anything the Oilers win it, a winger is nice for them. Kuffner is basically irrelevant. The two 2nd rounders and Gagner is also nice for the Red Wings.

It’s certainly not a steal for AA by any means. But Edmonton needed that top-6 winger and they could have done worse.

AA could blossom next to McDavid but, working from where he is as a player right now, I’m giving the win to Detroit, but cautiously so.

Still waiting (hoping) one of those 2nd’s is conditional

As a Detroit fan how doesn't Edmonton not win this trade?

Edmonton is starting to shore up the team for the playoffs. I hope it works for McDavid's sake.

The burning question: can TIppett teach him how to backcheck before the playoffs start?

If AA can't outscore his poor defensive play then he'll make the Oilers worse.

I think this is a solid deal from both Teams. Detroit is rebuilding and managing to get two 2nds for a player amidst a disappointment of a season seems good. I think Holland adding an asset that could be used for more than a year, but definitely help now, without giving up a first, is also good.

Edmonton going with the, we can't wait for picks to develop McDavid will leave by then trade.

I don't like this for Edmonton, It's a reach. They are praying he plays better. On top of it, I highly doubt he will take a team friendly deal and EDM has been hampered by the cap, why get the cap caught up again in sketchy players.

If Steve finds a couple NHL players with those picks I'll be happy but a team so void of talent trade a guy who can score has to make me feel sad.
