Yandle is to their blue line group what Eberle is to Edmonton's forward group. Whereas OEL is to their blue line group what RNH is to Edmonton's group of forwards. He's the guy you would anchor a team to on the backend, in the same way that RNH is who you would anchor your forward group to.
Thank you for clearing that up for me. I don't watch both teams extremely closely however I try to. I never thought of it that way.... If you put it like that I agree then. OEL might be too more important to trade but i believe in the motto that if the price is right you should trade him. I mean no GM in their right mind should become emotionally attached to a player and not trade them for the better of the organization. There are exception to my "rule" such as Joe Sakic
