    They're still going to have to pay for Lucic's contract

    where would we waive his FULL NMC to go? He aint going to Ottawa or Arizona. Which team struggled physically in the playoffs?

    Edmonton will probably lump in Puljujarvi and continue to compound their issues.
    Theyve said they wouldnt trade the 10th for cap relief, previously,.

    Oilers Working to Trade Milan Lucic by "Sweetening the Pot"

    Here's a crazy idea (that I'm borrowing to share here):

    To EDM: Smith, 28th overall
    To NYR: Lucic (33% retained - $4M AAV), 10th overall or Puljujärvi, plus

    I may even throw in our 26th to get the 10th pick AND Puljujärvi AND try to get the Oilers to retain more of Lucic's salary (maybe up to 50%)
    A very willful boy. A rather.......naughty boy, if I may be so bold.

    The key for me is flipping Lucic two or three years into this and retaining again on the final years by 50% for even more assets.

    Are they sweetening the pot by adding McDavid?

    Why would Edmonton do that? Is the cap hit that bad?

    $6 million for five more years. I'm not sure there's enough sugar in all of Edmonton to sweeten a deal enough to convince another team to take that on full freight.

    Id rather trade a wing (S-N-Z) instead of Smith. Perhaps get Puljujarvi + 2019 first

    Sign me up!

    Seriously, he looked like he belonged in a different era last season. The game hasn't past him by THAT quickly has it? I'd kick tires if young players or picks were involved.

    No way I want this contract we'll be bitching about this in years 3,4,5 & 6.

    Full freight? I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole. But with retention, it's a curious case.

    I think Edmonton got fleeced by every trade recently. we can take on Lucic and fleece them for some good assets

    What about

    To Edmonton:
    26th, 28th, Smith, Zucc

    To NYR: Draisaitle, Lucic, 10th

    Would that work?

    For the Rangers? Absolutely. There's not a snowball's chance in hell that Edmonton agrees, though.

    Draisaitl requires the ninth overall, and then some, in any deal.

    Not with Draisaitl in there.

    The rest isn’t enough to move up. I know Edmonton will want to move that contract, but unless they have a trade or FA signing on the horizon, they can’t give away the pick.

    Additionally, 26 + 28 isn’t enough to move into the top 10, especially when you include Smith (who no one wanted for free when he was waived last season). I also don’t see Zucc returning the assets Rangers fans believe he could. You might get to move up a few spots from 26 if you include 28 + Zucc, moving up to the late teens, but it would take the right situation for any team to make that deal.

    Really like Draisaitl, what do you guys think will take to get him.
    Is it even possible at this point.

    He Has four years NHL experience, i think it worth more then 9th pick from this years daft.
