EDM gives up the two most valuable pieces in this deal. They have no reason to do so. Smyth provides their young team some leadership and that 1st coud still be quite high and is worth more than any piece coming back. Not a chance they do this and unlike you said, this deal doesn't in any way speed up Oilers' re-build.

Caron is good prospect but it's premature calling him a 3rd liner in NHL. Besides Oilers have better player in Teemu Hartikainen to take that role.
