    Fantasy Land: What would you trade for Draisatl?

    Edmonton is kinda screwed. They only have 8m in space next year with NO offensive depth after McDavid, Draisatl, and RNH. Lucic and some of their defense aren't earning their contracts. Their prospect cupboard is bare. With the pressure to compete now while McDavid is balling, there's been some talk of moving Draisatl for young skilled players on ELCs to give them more depth and cap room to sign players. Draisatl makes 8.5m and just put up 100 pts, but he's been criticized because he hasnt been able to drive his own line away from McDavid. We still have a lot of prospect depth but no one with an elite ceiling.

    I dont think they'd trade him, but this is fantasyland, so tell me if you'd make these trades:

    A) Patrick, Frost, Lindblom FOR: Draisatl
    B) Patrick, Frost, Farabee FOR: Draisatl
    C) Patrick, Myers, Frost, Allison, Ersson FOR: Draisatl and Larsson

    I'd rather see some nastiness added to the team, than a 2C (Because we have some prospects that may fill that role in the future). I'm sick and tired of every team in the league treating us like a bunch of punks, with no answer. It's embarrassing to see what this franchise has become. I realize that the role of the "enforcer only" role has come and gone, but we don't have any response for the endless cheap shots that our players endure (like Coots blatantly being hit from behind in two consecutive games), with ZERO retaliation. Every team in the league knows it too. You don't see anyone screwing with Ovie or Kuznetsov because everyone knows Wilson will be dead in your butt if you screw with those guys. As a result, those guys get to roam the offensive zone practically at will. Same goes for Vegas, you want to take your chances with Reaves or Engelland? the answer is no most teams don't. I'm absolutely perplexed, that a franchise with Bob Clarke and Paul Holmgren in upper management, are as pussified as we are.

    Honestly, I would be content if Patrick ended up as a solid/great 3rd line center. I'd prefer to see a 2nd line upside, but that may be dreaming.
    Breakout year would be 22 goals and 50 pts.
    Remember, he is still 20. Can't even drink in the U.S., yet.
    If this team wants to be competitive, we need Patrick to be a legit 2nd line center who can give us 60 points.

    So far we've seen little to no progress. 30 points last year, 31 this year...

    He may not be able to buy a beer, but he can buy a gun in most States! USA, USA, USA!!

    I don't like the deals as structured but I don't think the value is insane.

    I'd probably do something like Patrick, Ghost, Choice of Laughton or Any Forward Prospect Except Frost & Farabee, Choice of Any Goalie Prospect.

    Draisaitl is a bargain for the next 7 years if he remains anywhere near where he produced this year.

    Some food for thought:

    Lindblom - 15G, 16A = 31 pts
    Patrick - 13G, 18A = 31 pts

    I hope he's on the "Couturier path" but man the guy is frustrating...
