    MacT also said he’d be willing to move their 1st. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could snag a potential top 3 pick from them. Rielly and Ekblad would be the best defensive pairing in the league eventually. Also Sam Reinhart wouldn’t look bad between JVR and Kessel a few years from now.

    I’ll take your 1st and Jeff Schultz for Phaneuf. Buyer’s market in Edmonton.

      I would do that for sure. Phaneuf is a home town boy who may actually sign there too. Losing Phaneuf would hurt, but potentially getting Ekblad or Reinhart would be worth it long term and cap wise. I don’t think Phaneuf is quite as irreplaceable as some seem to.

      • There’s no way that trade happens without Phaneuf signing a new contract or agreeing to sign with the Oilers. I still think their game is too open for Phaneuf on the backend.

        Maybe Schultz + 1st for Phaneuf + 1st + Finn/Percy?holzer.
