Mike Comrie
Eric Brewer

Joni Pitkanen
2nd Rd Pick

Edmonton doesn't fill any holes with this deal, which is a concern. They could make it bigger, adding Rita and a 3rd for a winger or C.

What it boils down to: Two known commodities for another rookie, one who arguably the most highly touted debut player this year, and certainly the one who has been the most impressive. Is this an overpay by Edmonton? 60pt #1/2 C and a certain #2 D-man for a potential Finnish "Nicklas Blake"

I wouldn't... I like Pitkanen, but to trade 2 guys like Comrie and Brewer you would need another player coming back with Pitkanen, not a 2nd.
