So obviously this is entirely speculation but it seems now that there at least seems to be at least some sort of "McDavid might ask for a trade" vibe out there what with the continued seasons of futility and his now being reduced to playing with pretty depressing linemates.

So, without thinking it's incredibly likely despite that, I suppose I was wondering what people thought might happen if McDavid did demand a trade. Would Edmonton keep him regardless? If not, what would they prioritize in a return? A top tier player or combination of players or would they want elite prospects and picks in order to at least partly combat the issue of having to hope that who they traded for would want to be in Edmonton?

And from our perspective, would you want the Leafs to be in on such a derby? What should they offer if so? Keep in mind that a winning bid would probably not have to be something that, just on the balance, Edmonton might like but would also have to be better than other competing bids(and there would probably be roughly 30 of those).
Let send Marner and Butt Cheeks over in a straight deal for Davide

Hard no.

But it would create enough cap space to resign Mikheyev, Barrie, Muzzin and the reincarnation of Darcy Tucker.

A Team Canada power play unit of Marner, McDavid, Tavares with Rielly & Barrie on D would be certainly be something to marvel at.

Watching that very other night on the Leafs???..... *goosebumps*
