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
Belanger (solid third line defensive center)

To Toronto:
1st overall

To Edmonton
Staal (signed)
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
