Flames get the best piece in the deal in both the present and future.

Meanwhile, in return, the Oilers get Roberto Luongo and Jay Bouwmeester who are historically a guaranteed ticket to playoff success and not at all overpaid. If the Oilers wanted either of those two they could be acquired using second tier pieces.

Better value can be found elsewhere if Eberle is being sent the other way.
So you are saying Eberle is better than Iginla? I love Eberle and said I would take this deal but in no way is Eberle better than Iginla.
