Columbus also adds a more reliable 7th defenseman while Edmonton adds a prospect to develop in OKC.*

Umberger RNH Eberle
Hall Gagner Yakupov

Dubinsky Brassard Atkinson
Prospal Johansen Hemsky
Foligno Anisimov Dorsett
Umberger plays all 3 forward positions. Hemsky isn't going to replace him as that physical winger.

& points wise Umby had more then Hemsky last year because he manages to stay healthy. He did that on a snake bitten team that was the only 1 to finish behind the Oilers.

Potter would be dumping a useless player for a younger 1 with upside.

This is so slanted in Edmonton's favor it's incredible. I'm pretty sure that the BJs don't want to finish behind the Oilers but lose the lottery 22 years back to back.
