It'll be a short while before most Oil fans will be awake to properly castigate you for this idea, so allow me to serve as a poor substitute.

Edmonton, to the extent that blueliners are needed at all (which is much less than one might guess), needs actual quality blueliners, not warm bodies that happen to play the blueline position. Even though Belanger wasn't as effective over there as one might hope, his contract is not nearly as g-dawful as Kaberle's, and so there's really no reason for them to make this deal.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
