The main problem with the trading of Gagner (22) and MPS (21) is that they are too young, and still have potential to become much more valuable than they currently are. This fruit is just not ripe.
Fans of other teams are correct to undervalue them, as they really havent proven much yet. In the same respect oiler fans see the potential that they have, and do not want to give up on them, unless they get the fair value that encompasses that potential.
The oilers do not need "hammer", they need a legit top pairing guy. We have 4, second pairing D-men, and when people say that Edmonton needs defense, what they really should be saying is, Edmonton needs a top pairing D man.
IMO neither of MPS or Gagner are included unless it is a top pairing guy coming back. For someone like that you start throwing in 1sts and top end prospects to make the deal happen. But not for Hjalmarsson.
