I think this trade benefits both teams. Oilers need depth for the playoffs and a LW for Drai, but they don’t have cap space. This trade should help. Sens are in a rebuild and 1st round pick would be good.

Oilers: 1 st round pick + Neal ($5.75 x 2 after this) . Maybe Oilers need to add a B prospect.

Sens: Dzingle ($3.375 RFA) + Gudbranson ($4 UFA) and Sens retain $1 m from each player.

If Dzingle works out in top 6, they resign him. If not, Oilers have cap space in off season to sign a top 6 LW.

Ok this is very interesting. I don’t think Edmonton adding a 1st is necessary. I can see a 2nd round pick being added tho

James Neal, 2nd and Bear for Dzingel and Gudbranson would be my counter.

I can't see any reason the Sens would even think about doing this. Nobody wants Neal, the Oilers are going to have pay if they want to dump him.

This trade would bankrupt Melink lol he made trades to save 30k in real dollars. If you live in Ottawa you can regularly see him bumming for change outside the south side Tim Hortons.

Honestly I don’t think Sens should make mistake of moving Dzingel again. He’s insane for them, but I do like his fit in Edmonton simply because he’ll put up points on a line with either McDavid or Drai. Gudbranson is trash and Neal is trash but Neal makes more and is signed longer, so Edmonton would need to add likely a second there. So really it would come down to what Dzingel is worth, which is probably a first.
Overall not a bad trade.

I would do it if it were a 2022 or 2023 1st but not if 2021. That would be a guarenteed late round 1st in a weak draft class. Basically a late 2nd in a normal year. I'd sooner take my chances on a random pick in 1 of next 2 years as there is more to be desired even late in those 1st rounds. Taking Neal should cost Edmonton more than a weak late 1st imo.
