Rival NHL GM on Schneider deal: "People might be hard on Vancouver for this but Horvat is going to be 1 heck of a player. Solid 2-way guy."

Horvat is like another Gaunce.... like another Kesler (at best), in fact all three had/have a similar scouting report

We needed a winger... and Dallas has our winger

The question becomes, if the Oilers were offering their 7th overall and a 2nd , would that be a better deal? Schneider would be playing in the division on a team transitioning to success.

I'm critical of Gillis for waiting so long to deal a goalie. Not considering that,and only based on the options available, I think he did okay (not good or great, okay). Losing Luongo via waivers or buyout would have been even more painful.

I read a tweet a second ago from LeBrun or someone that said another GM walked by, looked at the Schneider trade and just said "Wow."

Bo Horvat TSN comparable to Patrice Bergeron
Brendan Gaunce TSN comparable to Jordan Staal
Nicklas Jensen TSN comparable to Jussi Jokinen
Jordan Schroeder TSN comparable to Patrick Kane

I'd be hesitant to make that deal. Putting an elite goalie into the Oilers would be giving them the last piece of the puzzle, really. Dubnyk is okay but c'mon. Their D is getting better and well, they have a bunch of lottery picks up front that will put it together in a year or two and light this league on fire. Hall/Nuge/Eberle will be one of the dominant lines of our time until the salary cap splits them up.

I think Horvat has a higher ceiling than Gaunce. Could be a top line centre, whereas Gaunce projects to be a 2nd/3rd line centre. I recall Gillis saying a couple days ago that they like to take centreman as they are easier to convert to wing, as opposed to wingers converting to centre. And with all our struggles at centre this year, it makes sense.

Especially with Strome coming in, I hope he plays with JT.

@Real_ESPNLeBrun: The fourth team in on Cory Schneider was Columbus. So it was NJ-Edmonton-Columbus-Calgary as Final four. Philly nibbled but not long

Need details on what Edmonton offered

Canucks wanted the 7th overall, 2nd rounder + roster player but Oilers backed out

Forgot who tweeted it

What did they actually offer though is the question, the final offer at least

Pretty sure if its 7th and 2nd then the roster player is MPS or something of that calibre (had it gone thru)

Gillis said he did not speak with Luongo before agreeing to Schneider trade.

Schneids could easily elevate the Oilers up a few spots in the standings, glad he didn't end up in Edmonton

The way Bettman deals with the fans is pretty hilarious.

Good deal for Detroit getting another pick. 18 for 20 and 58.
