Zoinks! I think Atlanta would take that deal and run with it. Hurme is a solid goalie, but we have to get rid of him sooner or later. Really, I'd be happy to get just about anything back for him. Exelby I'd hate to give up, but you have to give up quality to get some back. Gamache I think you're off on - "bust" tag or not, Stefan is hands down the better NHL player. Gamache has a huge heart, but he's an AHL talent. His skating and decisionmaking just aren't NHL speed. Plus, he likes to play in the high traffic areas where he gets tossed around like a rag doll. The option to flip picks I don't see as being much of a concession as I think Edmonton and Atlanta will be pretty close in the points race the next few years.

I think that deal is pretty lopsided towards Atlanta.
