this here. fair value is one thing. a realistic trade another entirely. in fantasy hockey eberle for carlson plus might be good. for the real hockey teams where chemistry and personalities and character have real value, its another story.

in the case of carlson, he's been the caps shutdown rd for two full seasons. he's had pretty much the same defense partner since he came to his first training camp and the two defensemen are greater than the sum of their parts. both players are signed and content and long term components of a playoff team.

gm's just dont trade those players.

i am not an oil fans and so i dont know eberle's situation. i dont see why the oilers would want to trade him.
