So... Every team thinks their team gets ripped off in this trade?
Note to TO fans... I did say that an upgrade from Peckham to Gagner would be likely. Rumours have it that Gagner could fetch a top 10 pick this year. However, an upgrade to Gagner would cost you a 3rd round pick.
Pittsburgh fans... You will not get more than that for Staal. You just won't. The guy is a great second line center. You aren't going to get a star price for him, because he isn't a star player.
Edmonton fans... You are getting a pretty solid second line center (hole) and a potential top pairing d-man (note that there is no guarentee that gardiner turns into a top pairing guy). Yes, you give up the #1 pick... BUT if there is ever a time to use a #1 overall to fill some holes on a team... THIS is the perfect situation to do it.

Hartikainen/PRV Staal Hemsky
Smyth Horcoff Jones
Petrell Lander Eager
That is a pretty solid line up for next year.
