If this propels Edmonton into the 7-10th place in the west it's a fair deal. If they end up at the bottom once again they lose pretty hard. Maybe a conditional 1st from Phoenix if Edmonton finishes in the lottery.
i could be wrong and correct me if i am, but Columbus didn't
trade Nash, request or not, and the Pens may have lost Staal as a UFA, but again, if i'm not mistaken, they didn't
trade him either. this is why the Oil may still be looking for a top d-man, but likely aren't going to get him...the price will be too high and the Oil simply won't pay it.
