Holy ****... That trade does not fit the requirment of improving the team. Edmonton believe it or not ought to matter in terms of that too. Smid, Petry for Green is a very bad deal for Edmonton. Smid is an absolute beast, and Petry is going to be a top 4 defenseman for a long long time, if not top pairing. Jones and the 32nd (is it the 31st if NJ forefits their pick?) is a pretty significant throw in to a deal Edmonton is already being fleeced on. That really is awful for Edmonton. As much as Hemsky gets ragged on for injury history and decreased production how does the same not apply to Green?
