Isn't it supposed to be that Oven-Chick kid? There's no way Smith would trade away a Russian player.
Couple of reasons.

1. Who is to say the Hawks will finish worst in the NHL? If they don't then they won't give up the 1st overall pick to the Oilers. So it would be the Oilers taking the gamble not the Hawks.

2. Comrie is a proven asset. You KNOW he will produce. Even Ovechkin isn't a sure thing. He has a great potential, but anyone remember Daigle? Same thing. With propsects there is no gaurantee.
