We don't NEED Gilbert. He'd be nice to have but redundant. Keep throwing those 20 mins per night stats all you want, but I watch him play a lot and he wouldn't be a huge upgrade over Liles to be worth losing smyth (Who was better in his first three years and only two years older). Can't say I watch Riley Nash alot but I doubt most Oiler fans catch Cornell games either. Cogliano is nice, but again redundant because he would still be a 3rd line center behind Wolski and Stastny. The trade leaves Avs with a ton of salary in defense, no top 6 left winger. The prospect isn't blue chip, and we don't even get a pick. Whats more, we give our best player to our division rivals. Makes no sense to me.
