To PHI:
Mike Comrie
Eric Brewer

To EDM:
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"

Thoughts?

i'd NEVER do that deal....throw in a player like Williams or a centre that can centre Smytty & Hemsky, then maybe, Brewer had his best game of the season against the Sens & hopefully he can start earning the 2.5 mil he's getting paid this season..
