Probably the single-most controversial trade of Peter Chiarelli’s tenure as Edmonton Oilers general manager was his decision at the 2015 Draft to deal first- and second-round draft picks to the New York Islanders in exchange for defensive prospect Griffin Reinhart. It was a contentious move the moment it was announced, and a 2015-16 campaign split between the AHL and NHL has done nothing to quiet the argument.
The question now is what the Oilers should do with Reinhart. In this week’s edition of What Would You Do Wednesday, we turn that question over to our readers.

Compared to the previous five off-seasons, the anticipation of a major trade involving the Edmonton Oilers seems much more realistic this year. Peter Chiarelli stated, "I'm reasonably confident I will be able to address our defense in a meaningful way," at his end-of-season media availability.
Depending on how the draft lottery unfolds next Saturday, he could dangle his first round draft pick, or most likely, he will trade one or two of his skilled forwards to acquire the much needed top-pairing, right-shot defender.
