    Yup. Now if he can move PoolParty at the draft he can get a pick back.

    All the moves that Chia should've made at the deadline in 2016-17.

    Can. Not. WAIT.

    Re: 2019-20 Edmonton Oilers Season Thread - Another Year of Stockholm Syndrome

    In the last 24 hours Holland added three different players who have scored 20 goals in a season in the NHL. Two of which as rentals for the price of a 4th rounder and 5th rounder. The third another young one who scored 27 G even strength last year and was possibly undervalued with a poor season rocking an 88.1 PDO and an abyssmal on-ice save percentage of 79.1% on a team challenging historical levels of bad.

    Good day.

    With these moves, Neal is potentially on the 4th line once healthy. That's what depth looks like. We now have at least four wingers who can reasonably challenge each other for ice time with McDavid when everyone's healthy, and they can commit full time to a third line based around Sheahan and Archibald who have looked good with anybody that has reasonable speed.

    Our fourth line if everyone gets healthy could now be Neal-Haas/Khaira-Chaisson with McDavid occasionally joining them on his double shifts. That's a pretty strong fourth line to put out in the playoffs.

    Suspect Benson goes back to the farm to help the team and wouldn't be surprised to see the minor leaguer Edmonton grabbed from Detroit helping the cause in Bakersfield, if not this season, next year.

    For context, here's some AA highlights from before his downer year this past year:



    Sweet diggity. If he can recapture just half of this with McDavid, then two 2nd rounders + Gagner is an absolute bargain.

    And now they just add Derek Forbort from LA for a conditional pick.

    Holland going all in.

    Best deadline day in many years. But it helps to have a good GM. Again, first time in many years.

    Interesting. Looking at Calgary I think their bigger issue is their scoring depth, not their 6-8 defensemen particularly when Giordano comes back. They also sound close on Gustaffson which could be a good grab, but kind of redundant on their squad.
