Comrie, a proven top two line centre for Stefan who has never proven a thing and Coburn a draft pick just this past year? Yech!

Look at the Atlanta lineup, he can't even break onto a team where the forwards are mostly unproven rookies!!! What chance does he have on the Oilers? So what happens if Stefan doesn't pan out and becomes another Horcoff/Marchant 3rd /4th liner. We haven't found ourselves a #1 centre AND we don't have a replacement defender on our blueline, as Coburn probably won't be ready for another 3 years!

If we want Stefan, let's trade somebody lesser to get Stefan and get better proven product for Comrie. How about Rita or Pisani + 2nd pick for Stefan?
You make a good point, but what we have to go after isn't really open to getting what you want without breaking us.
