I'm sorry, I can't help but look at the Oilers and think negatively.

Prospects are not as valued by GM's as they on here. Unless they are top-5 (Brayden Schenn), they won't get traded as a center piece in a deal. That's because the prospects you refer to (the Klefbom's and Lander's of the world) are also found in nearly every organization of some kind.

The Oilers are not the only team to have talented prospects.

And Smid, Petry and Jones are decent players, but again, as center pieces of a deal they won't fetch much.

I just call it how I see it. If you want an impact player, a member of the Big 4 is going to have to go back. Edmonton doesn't have much else unless they are in the mood of offering most of their good prospects.
