Earlier this week we talked about how the Vancouver Canucks almost acquired then-Montreal Canadiens elite defenceman P.K. Subban, in a trade that would’ve involved the Canucks’ 5th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, with which the Habs would’ve used to select Cape Breton Screaming Eagles top centre Pierre-Luc Dubois. Well, that didn’t happen, and instead, P.K. was traded to the Nashville Predators for Shea Weber a few days later. Coincidentally though, the Edmonton Oilers made a trade that shocked the hockey world within a few minutes of that Habs/Preds trade, sending eventual league MVP Taylor Hall to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for Adam Larsson.
In this video though, we’re talking about a discussion that was apparently prevalent between two of the teams that were active on that day; a talk so absurd that, when thinking about the consequences and the alternate realities, it really stars to make your head hurt. In this video, we’re talking about how the Edmonton Oilers were on the verge of trading Leon Draisaitl, the eventual 100-point German and only 100-point scorer in the NHL this year, for Subban.
