Obviously that's a joke of a deal for the Canucks, but it's also the complete opposite end of the spectrum from what some Canucks fans are hoping to get. I think the return you chastized above is pretty fair really. If anything leans to us a bit.
Why would the Oilers need Reimer? (course if it relieves them of the crap salary that Horcoff.....)

Here's my counteroffer....put Luongo on waivers and the Oilers claim him for free but of course still are stuck with Horcoff. Canucks better off in this deal (granted I wouldn't do it). Horcoff's contract is almost as bad as Komi's (only reason why his contract is "better" even though there's an extra year on it is the NMC comes off after one season). Horcoff or Komi? That's like being given the choice of execution - neither a desirable option.
