As for your idea, at that point, Gainey should say, thanks, but no thanks. The only way I would include Hainsey or Komisarek is in a deal for a young offensive forward with size.
Therein lies the problem. The Oilers will want return for a 23yr old 30 goal man, where other GMs will only want to give up enough for a 5'9 center with an attitude problem. Great disparity in assets, but if I were Lowe and only getting offers for the latter, I'd let him rot.
