Not sure if Edm or Cal would need to add.
Gagner = 8th Overall (Approx)
Backlund > Paajarvi
8th Overall > Bouwmeester
And the difference kind of evens out I think.
Edm adds steady veteran presence with good first pass to D, and a young center that would look good in between the young guns.
Car gets Ganger who I think would do well with a change of scenery.
Cal can get a good piece at 8th Ovr to help re tool (wont use rebuild) while keeping their other first at 14th Ovr. Could also use this deal to move even higher. Also get a big speedy winger that just doesn't have a spot to show what he has on Edm roster.
Gagner isn't worth the 8th(as nice as it would be).
Paajarvi is definitely more valuable than Backlund. Two years younger and similar stats on a worse team.
