<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>JmoneyTalk</b></div><div>Haha no. I actually watch the Oilers. It's 5 games in.. and he's had more then enough shining moments... Oilers need him more right now then ever until the team can get a flow going, there is no one who can replace his minutes, he has value for the Oilers just based off his pk work.. and he's blocking a ton of shots.. D make mistakes not time to trade him for "well hes been playing bad, so let's not trade him for his true overall value"</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>justaBoss</b></div><div>Statistically speaking it says a lot about how bad the Oilers are if a player with Larsson's statistics is "needed right now more than ever"</div></div>

Caleb Jones was struggling the first few games this year, since he's been in the pressbox Larsson's defensive numbers have been fine.

37:03 TOI with Jones
33:22 TOI w/o Jones

25.91 SA/60 with Jones
23.36 SA/60 w/o Jones

6.48 GA/60 with Jones
0.00 GA/60 w/o Jones

2.24 xGA/60 with Jones
1.89 xGA/60 w/o Jones

48.00 OZ FO% with Jones
30.77 OZ FO% w/o Jones

So despite having more defensive responsibilities placed on him without Jones, his defensive numbers are better.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CD282</b></div><div>Colorado adds for sure. McDavid and Draisaitl are both elite center in their own right, MacKinnon is nearly as good offensively but Rantanen is a complimentary player and has way less value than any of the other skaters here. And that's without even considering how many years these players are under contract for: McDavid (6), Draisaitl (5) vs Rantanen (5) and MacKinnon (3). In this scenario Colorado is getting the best players AND getting them for longer term.

(Neither goalie moves the dial much for me. Similar age, similar contracts, similar performance last year.)</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CD282</b></div><div>Edmonton declines more swiftly IMO. McDavid and Draisaitl push their own lines, Rantanen cannot because he's a complimentary player like Nugent-Hopkins. In the past 3 seasons at 5v5:

Rantanen with MacKinnon: 3.36 GF/60 - 2.54 GA/60 = +0.82 G/60 (56.90 GF%)
Rantanen w/o MacKinnon: 1.47 GF/60 - 1.47 GA/60 = even (50.00 GF%)

Draisaitl proved last year that he could drive his own line and actually led the league in scoring in the 2nd half after being moved off McDavid's line. That 1-2 punch is far more valuable than MacKinnon and a sidekick who doesn't have much value without him.

McDavid being under team control for 6 years + Draisaitl for 5 vs just 3 for MacKinnon is a huge deal too.</div></div>
