This is nothing Edmonton doesn't have already. Hemsky for depth isn't the most intelligent move.

They need a big center.

Staal is that player. Unfortunately he's also even more valuable to Pittsburgh than he already usually is, as pretty much the only offensively capable center of theirs healthy at the moment.

Not good trading partners at all.

A trade to L.A. makes much more sense, as a guy like Brayden Schenn may become expendable for immediate help, and he's exactly the type of player Edmonton needs going forward. Trade for him and you do then have that two-way, physical center who can win faceoffs, and then you can take that winger, in Landeskog, or that defenseman, in Larsson, instead of guys who'd maintain similar upside to what you already have, in Couturier (Schenn), and RNH (Gagner).


Well said.
