  1. This is a failed trade. Everyone else getting first rounders and we are likley picking 50-60 range with that mtl pick. Petry was a 2nd rnd gem in regards to draft position and much like Perron, magic beans once again. Mac T was spouting off about getting some experiences prospects, nada. Both trades he chose 2015 draft picks. Mac T better hope he wins McDavid lottery because that is only chance he will survive his MBA brain storming.

      1. If the Habs make the Conference Finals (not a long shot at all), then it becomes a 2nd and 3rd rounder.

        Petry is a UFA next season – this is strictly a rental, and Edmonton will reload the minors with the extra picks.

        1. Yeah, that’s a lot of uncertainty. As the Oilers have found out, draft picks don’t equal success. I’d be scared, with this Oilers management, to rely on the draft to back-fill any roster at any time.
