What's flat out insane is the idea that a deal for a proven NHL player would hinge on Toni Rajala. I'd do the original deal in a heartbeat from Edmonton, throwing in Rajala really doesn't make it look any worse. I like Omark, but I think he tops out as a 2nd liner that only brings offense to the table. It hurts to lose that 2nd rounder, seeing how our 3 2nd round picks from last year are playing so well, but it's still just a 2nd round pick.
Acquiring Seto gives us 3 top 6 right wingers so one would end up having to play the 3rd line. That's a good problem to have. With all the smurfs on this team, it would be nice to have somebody with some size that throws his weight around. The fact that he's pretty well a lock for 20 goals (and has scored 30) and is only 24 certainly doesn't hurt.
Of course, I don't see the sharks making that deal so the point is moot.
