Yeah, giving up a former 8th round pick and a 4th rounder was massive overkill in regards to getting Nedved. His point a game that got the Oilers to within 2 points of the playoffs wasn't worth near that much.

Even if Nedved doesn't end up resigning with the Oilers, I'd do that trade over and over again, and I like Helminen.
