Swap Ceci for Barrie and MAYBE, although we don't need another OFD

Gonna have to be a no. Quality over quantity plus Ceci's contract is terrible.

Trading a 1st, 2nd, 5th, and decent prospect to get a slightly below league average goaltender seems like a bold strategy, especially given the fact that Koskinen is off the books in a few months.

from what I’ve seen from ranger fans on this sight, Georgiev might not even be qualified…. So you valuation is just way off here. I’d do a 3rd for his rights, maybe a 2nd if it looks like we aren’t able to land a better goalie anywhere else.

Klingberg deal is cool and all until you realize you can’t resign him at the $8M+ he’s going to want on a long term deal. The oilers are very very far from being a cup contender. The way they have played, I would say they are a fringe playoff team. Acquiring a rental isn’t what we need.
A 1st and a 2nd for 20 games of Klingberg… this team has a lot of holes and moving out our few valuable assets for a rental is nothing short of reckless.

Of all our defensive toils, Ceci isn't the biggest problem, if you could loose Barrie that would be preferred.

As said previously we can't afford to re-sign Klinger at ~$8m plus Nurse will jump to $9.25m next year. I think the actual defensive upgrade we need is in 2nd LD slot.

I'd be game for the Gieorgiev deal.

Neither of these are trades the Oilers should be considering imo.

They need to make some lower cost acquisitions to improve their forward depth, guys like J.Larsson, Jarnkrok, Dzingel, Hinistroza, etc., maybe grab a dman like Da Haan and a goalie like Holtby, trading 1sts and a plethora of picks for a rental dman that's impossible to sign and a goalie that isn't that great is just a waste of assets.
