To EDM:
Gustav Nyquist

To DET:
Caleb Jones
Rights to Anton Slepyshev


Nyquist is a speedy winger and that's what the Oilers need. He's got one year left on his contract so it's a tryout year for him in Edmonton. They could give him a shot at McDavid's wing. If it doesn't work out, he's still a capable middle six forward.

The Wings have some young skilled forward prospects who need ice-time so this move means a free roster spot for them. On the other hand, they lack D prospects so they get one in Jones. Slepyshev is gone to KHL but Detroit was always a nice destination for Russian players. That fact could convince him to come back to America.

Given jones is our best LHD prospect i'd still make this trade as I’m a fan of nyquist but I think Detroit want somebody more ready to nhl ready.
