seth jones ryan nugent hopkins trade rumors

The Nashville Predators are working on a monster trade with the Edmonton Oilers. According to TSN, the Predators were one of the teams who inquired with the Oilers about the price of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins prior to the roster freeze.

The Predators are strong on defense with Shea Weber, Roman Josi and Seth Jones. However, they are weak on offense, and need a #1 center. The Oilers are strong at center with Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. They are weak on defense and need a potential #1 right handed defenseman.

Seth Jones, who is 21 years old, is a 6'4 right handed shot defenseman. He was drafted 4th overall in 2013. He has tallied 1 goal and 10 points in 34 games played. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who is 22 years old, is a cerebral 2-way center. He was drafted 1st overall in 2011. He has tallied 8 goals and 23 points in 34 games.

A RNH for Jones swap is evenly valued and has the potential to benefit both teams. Do you think this is a fair trade?
