As an Oiler fan I can agree that a Hall for Enstrom swap isn't what ATL would be looking for, but Thrasher fans need to acknowledge the fact that Hall, Eberle, and Paajarvi are a hell of a lot more valuable than they are being given credit for.
I don't want to get into about what CK posted about Hall/Eberle and all. All those players involved being traded are just not plausible and I don't necessarily agree with his view on that. It's just too out there of a trade for me. Too risky for boths teams.

I was more referring to some other posts that suggest Gilbert=Enstrom or suggesting Enstrom only thrives on the PP and whatnot. Tonight's game was a perfect example of how much Enstrom anchors that defense as a whole.
