Icon59 Oilers trade Brandon Davidson to Islanders for a 2019 3rd

Not bad for the Oilers who picked up Davidson earlier in the season off waivers.

Must be a condition on that. That's a lot to give up for a waiver pickup

He's an ex Oiler. Future Norris finalist now.

Through the vision of the great sage Chiarelli, all things are made possible.

Higher pick is probably just a thank you to Chia for their entire second line, which came courtesy of Chia.

Taking things from the Oilers has worked wonders for the Islanders thus far, perhaps they're just going back to that well.

It's sort of like finding something for free at a junk sale......then selling it for $20 to an antique store....it's fun.

Ah Edmonton, the NHL's equivalent to Wal-Mart's 'Scratch and Dent Used DVDs' Bin.

So the Oilers just gave the Isles another player.

We all know that the Oilers can't draft after the first round anyway.

It's happened once already to him.

The market place for young defencemen is always high.

At the risk of getting flamed on, this is decent asset management by Chia. Cost them nothing to reacquire the guy, getting a draft pick out of it at the end of the day.

Their season is done: if they can get ANYthing for any member of their assortment of “building-something-special” candies, they should try.

Just based on their track record this is a dofus for nothing trade.

Davidson was waiver wire material, the Oilers can't draft out of the first round.
