Why the Sabres do this deal: Comrie is an upgrade on Connolly and Smith is an upgrade on McKee and Noronen is a backup.

Why the Oilers do this deal: cut costs, ability to deal Salo to get rid of his salary with Noronen, McKee won't be eligible for UFA while Smith will in one year, Connolly has the skills and may need new environment. If the Oilers want Kotalik or Afinogenov instead of Connolly...sure.
This deal is actually6 pretty good from an oiler standpoint. So it is connolly and Noronen for Comrie and Mckee for Smith.

I like this and would love to see ti happen. I wonder if this deal would be contingent on The briere deal, becase then it is a moot point as the habs fans were not interested in Comrie straight up for komo either.
