Never underestimate the stupidity of a panicky NHL GM that is trying to win now.
Different circumstances. The Flyers had lost their top two centers for an unknown period of time (on the same day no less), they weren't the only ones bidding for him, and it was at the deadline. Also, Oates had a team option, but that's a minor detail. Unless both goalies on a team go down and a handful of teams are bidding, at the deadline, then the Oates deal isn't very comparable.
