Smid and Brule

What kind of return could Edmonton get for this package?

Smid and Brule are both top 10 picks who have not lived up to their draft hype but are still very capable NHL regulars.

Smid looked to take a huge step forward last year, but not having Lubomir Visnovsky as a partner has definitely set him back. He's been pushed down the depth chart by Theo Peckam, but IMO is still a very good old school 4-5 defenseman who hasn't reached his peak yet.

Brule I think got lost in the shuffle in Edmonton. Most fans seemed to think it was either him or Cogliano, and management and coaches have shown time and time again that they will give Cogliano the opportunities. With Omark and Reddox up, and Ryan Jones impressing, Brule will be in tough to find a role here.

Not looking to dump these guys by any means, just want to see what's out there.
