The problem with this offer is it just ins't enough for the oilers to move those 2 players. We could sop Pitkanen and Schremp separately and get more than that from other teams.
As for the other posters who figure that $5.0 million for Pitkanen is to much, why do you think the oilers would consider trading him? If he was affordable then he would fit into our untouchable list, but at $5.0+/year he gets shopped.
I agree that Staal is untouchable for the rags and asking for him is a waste of time.
