I can see the attraction for Philadelphia here maybe wanting a better goalie, but I’m not so sure Edmonton has a need for Simmonds. Unless they felt the need to get a jump on re-signing him before he hits the market.

If i'm Simmonds, i know i'm going to play shot gun with mcdavid for the rest of my career. Definitely worth it for edmonton what are ya sayin man he'd be a perfect fit of skill and grit.

Why trade for him though. He’s going to market. Why not just sign him outright instead of trading a pick?

Oilers are doing all they can to make the playoff, i'm betting they are going to add 2 top 6 forwards.

When you add 2 top 6 forwards, you give up a ton.

Exactly. And if the incoming player is UFA and doesn’t re-sign with the team, you may have just mortgaged your future for nothing. Unless they plan on winning the cup this year, trading for Simmonds and another forward of similar caliber might cost a couple prospects and high picks. I would expect Simmonds alone to be a 1st+.
