I don't know enough about Kronwall to comment on him, but I like your thinking in regard to depth. That's where the bargains always come from, tremendous depth in one area. One of the most lopsided trades in NHL history, the Esposito-Hodge-Stanfield trade came about because a team already had tremendous depth when another player emerged. On a lesser level, this is why Satan was sent away by Edmonton.
Some areas of depth right now imo are:
Calgary defense (honest)
Carolina center (honest)
Detroit goal (duh)
New Jersey defense
Because of that, players like Mike Commodore (Calgary), Denis Gauthier (Calgary), Jozef Vasicek (Carolina), Curtis Joseph (Red Wings-bad example, but you get the point), Jani Rita (Edmonton), Matt DeMarchi (New Jersey) and Antoine Vermette (Ottawa) are probably available at less than full price.
From that list, I don't see anyone I'd trade Comrie straight up for, but there's lots of nice players who could help the Oilers.
Can you tell me more about Kronwall? Is he a big time offensive defenseman? I see he's 5'11/165.
