Omark is a high risk, high reward type player. Maybe EDM have to add a bit to sweetn the pot to make it an easier pill to swallow.

What about this tweak:

To Pittsburgh:
5th overall
Omark
Belanger (solid third line defensive center)


To Toronto:
1st overall
Gagner

To Edmonton
Staal (signed)
Gardiner
TO 3rd round pick
So in order to balance the fact that Pittsburgh gets absolutely nothing they need out of this deal, you'd add a player who can backfill Staal badly for a year at most and call it even.

Iow, you're proposing

To Pitt:
-old, beaten down 4th line grinder
-guy who can't crack the line-up on the league's worst team for the second year in a row
-defensive prospect Pittsburgh doesn't need

to Edmonton:
-60-65 point defense-first center who happens to be 23 years old, 6'6 and mobile.

You don't see the problem here?

Edit: In essence, here's what you're offering in reverse

To Edm: Tangradi, Adams, Harrington

To Pitt: Hall
