The problem with that is no Oilers fan in their right mind would make that trade. Garth could propose it 100 times, and all he'd get would be a restraining order. The Oilers would never agree to this deal, because despite a fan on a messageboard saying RNH is diarrhea, the Oilers won't move him.
Islanders will not be trading Nino unless they can find fair value. Paajarvi and a swap of 1sts is not fair value.
this is what i'll never figure out about fans. Nino accomplished about as little as you possibly can in an NHL season for a high 1st round pick, yet, because Nino is a little more physical and he went higher at #5 as opposed to #10 where Paajarvi went, Nino is of more value! Nino's -29 for plus minus was gawd awful...at least Magnus has one season of 15 goals and 19 assists under his belt. if anyone is worth more it's Paajarvi !!
