Team: 2021-22 Edmonton Oilers
Team Explanation
Everyone Says That Bringing Up The Big Three Defense Prospects Up And Playing Them Full Time Isn't Worth It And They Aren't Ready, Well Guys, I Know For A Fact That They Will Be By Next Season, The Only Way To Get Experience Is To Play, If They're Playing Great In Other Leagues, They Do Great With The Oilers.

Also High On Lyubushkin Right Now, I think He'd Be Great For Samorukov.

    My guess is you'd say something like McDavid+Yamamoto for Mantha? 🤣🤣🤣

    Just considering everyone makes ridiculous trades on this site

    No that's obviously not fair. If we did trade mantha, we would want younger pieces bouchard/yamamoto/holloway. Pieces like that

    Bear is a good piece too like you had. I just don't see us trading him

    No way to know if Klefbom will ever really recover from that injury. A 100% healthy Kelfbom and I think I'd take this deal, but it's just too risky, so Detroit declines.

    Broberg probably isn't going to be in the NHL next year. Bouchard probably won't be ready for 1st pairing. Why are you rushing these guys? Haven't Oilers fans learned anything form the past decade?

    That Lyubushkin contract is ridiculous, as is the Yamamoto contract. PLD got $5M x 2, no way Yamamoto gets anywhere near that considering the flat cap and that he doesn't have arb rights. Look at Bear's deal - that's the kind of thing you should expect for Yamamoto if they go the bridge route.

    I agree Detroit isn't trading Mantha and Edmonton isn't trading Bear. You really hit the nail on the head when you said "Haven't Oilers fans learned anything form the past decade?" Holland prefers players to over ripen in the minors and by doing that it gives the player the best chance of succeeding. Being a Detroit fan I can say this approach works very well.
