Edm - det/stl

Oilers need size to compliment their skill. Here are 2 trades that I think could benefit all parties...

A foundation of
gets Johan Franzen + ?
gets Nail Yakupov

Edmonton gives up elite skill to gain size and experience. Detroit gives up size for much needed youth that still provides a gritty style of play, and should mesh well with Datsyuk.

gets Patrik Berglund
get Sam Gagner

Lateral move perhaps, but I personally feel gagner is slightly more skilled and has a higher ceiling...but of course Berglund is the bigger body that might require compensation.

Franzen - Nuge - Eberle
Hall - Berglund - Hemsky

McDonald - Backes - Oshie
Steen - Gagner - Tarasenko/D'Agostini

Bertuzzi - Datsyuk - Yakupov
Fillpula - Zetterberg - Nyquist?
