Boo Hoo.

Nedved for 1 month + Markkanen = A good (but small) young prospect in Dwight Helminen, a terrific AHL goalie at least in Valiquette and a second round pick.

Didn't the Oilers only get a third round pick for Markkanen last summer? If that's right, then the difference +Valiquette+Helminen is what it cost to get 1 month of Nedved.

Unless you think that somehow Nedved will be an Oiler after this season, I don't think this was that unbalanced a trade. Don't get me wrong, obviously this was a great deal for the Oilers today because they added without giving anything up... from today. Overall, I actually think it's kinda even.
