    Default Duchene to EDM

    Melnyk and Dorion are dreaming if they think either of Stone or Duchene will resign with this disastrous organization. Never have I heard of a team starting a rebuild WITHOUT a first round pick in the first draft of the rebuild. They should be pot committed to completely blowing it up. You can't justify trading away Karlsson and Hoffman but keeping Stone and Duchene. Anyways, it gave me the thought of Edmonton potentially being the perfect trade partner with Ottawa. Edmonton need to sort out the top two lines and what they plan to do with RNH and Draisaitl. Who is going to play on McDavid's wing and who will be the second line centre? Acquiring Duchene would answer these questions. Put Draisaitl on McDavid's wing for a dynamic top line and have Duchene centre the second line with RNH on his wing. It adds depth and it would likely come cheap. The trade I have proposed in my head is simple...

    To EDM: Matt Duchene

    To OTT: 2019 1st Round Pick & a B level prospect

    This addresses a need for Edmonton and gives Ottawa the first round pick they so desperately need.

    Thoughts?

    This deal would hinge on Duchene re-signing with the oilers, and I don't see that happening. He's already stated he doesn't want to go through another re-build (obviously EDM has pieces in place), but until the Oilers figure out their backend/goalie issues lets face it, they're not contenders.

    A 1st round pick + a B level prospect is a rental price.

    With McDavid, Draisaitl and RNH, why would EDM want to spend $6M on 1 year of Duchene?

    I see them being sellers come the deadline tbh. Who knows, I also didn't believe in VGK and we all know what happened there...

    $6M??? LOL! Duchene will be looking for more than that at seasons end so no sense on getting a rental.

    I do agree with you though, Edmonton does not need another center at this point with the three you mentioned locked up for a few more years (RNH still has a few left on his deal). They need help on the wings more and until they move out a couple big contracts (Lucic/Sekera for example), they aren't bringing in more big money.

    Duchene in MTL still makes the most sense to me and we have the cap to offer him 8M.

    This deal could never happen. One of the GM's would have to be defined as a winner of the deal. There's just no way, either could pull off a positive trade... for that reason - Edm is out.

    It really makes you wonder about Vancouver signing 3 4th liners to multi-year deals for big money when they could have acquired Duchene this season and afford to give him 7+m like he's going to want. Home town boy, 2nd line C... He'll find a home, I just don't see it in Canada.
    Yesterday's weirdness is tomorrow's reason why. - H.S.T.

    I really don't see how this feels a need for Edmonton.

    Duchene to Carolina or Montreal has always made the most sense.

    If Ottawa wasn’t so insistent on keeping their former players out of the east they could probably find a taker in Carolina, Columbus, Montreal, New Jersey or the Islanders. Out west what team with playoff hopes might really need a 2C other than Dallas or maybe Anaheim?

    Yeah, that's why I said $6 million for one year of Duchene
