Rather than getting a boatload of assets for him while they're retooling?
I already noted that this is an overpay from the Oilers, which is the obvious reason NSH would have to accept this offer. I'm making the point that almost anything is worth paying to fit their window, before guys like Kane, McDavid, Draisatl and Ekholm expire.
You act as if you're saying something intelligent when you're actually just spewing a bunch of nonsense. First of all, this isn't a trade where the Oilers are spending 3 1sts to dump Campbell. He's part of a trade that would see them acquiring Saros and McDonagh, a pretty important part of this trade, no? Also, you talk as though the Oilers could easily go out and acquire a legit starter for $3 mil without assets. Saros is literally the best goaltender the Oilers could conceivably target, and they'd be getting him at $3 mil for the next 2 years. McDonagh would be an upgrade on Ceci and would give the Oilers a top tier backend, to go along with the best forward core in the league and an elite goaltender.
If the Oilers make this trade, they are cup favourites for the 2 years. If they don't and are unable to acquire a legit starter, they miss out on their window and could potentially see McDavid and Drai walk.</div></div>
I'd easily give up Broberg and 2 1sts for Saros with retention. The rest is needless filler with a few cap dumps that is confusing a few ppl including me at first lol The more I think about it, the retention really makes all the difference. This is actually a very very good trade for the Oilers. Indeed. I doubt youll get many to change their minds though. This placed is filled with tribalist mouthbreathers.
