<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Jtcurls</b></div><div>Toronto will want more for the 3 guys they are moving. Yes they are in salary cap he’ll but they are in win now mode and you only offer 1 guy in Benning who would make next years roster.
Eathan bear is a similar prospect to what they have in sandin and lillegren already.
Don’t want picks and prospects.
Deal built around Larsson, Kadri, Brown and maybe Kapanen would work but if Kapanen included it would need to be a first plus a 3rd</div></div>
I agree that Toronto would want more, however Toronto doesn’t have cap space to sign Kapanen, so I figured Oilers could either offer sheet him which would only cost them a second, or trade for him. (Valued as 2nd plus Bear)
Kadri is not in the good books with his team, so I thought he would come a bit cheaper. (Valued as Benning, Khaira, Puljujarvi)
Brown could probably be had for the 3rd round pick
I think this works well for both teams, helps Toronto get out of cap hell with cheaper younger players. Oilers get some decent forwards to balance out the lineup.
Oilers take on $11 million in contract, while sending about $4million to Toronto. So that’s $7 million in savings for them to put towards signing Marner!
I could see possibly adding a mid to late round pick, or Gambardella to Toronto
I don’t see Larsson getting traded. Oilers can’t afford to overpay in free agency for a top 4 right shot defenceman
