Edmonton gains Ryan O'Reilly, Jason Zucker and Matthew Dumba, loses Nail Yakupov and Sam Gagner. (Fills two major holes (2C & high-end D prospect), adds wing prospect, loses from position of depth)
Calgary gains Ryan Kesler, loses Jay Bouwmeester. (Top-line center, sacrifices defense)
Minnesota gains Nail Yakupov and Jamie McGinn, loses Matthew Dumba, Dany Heatley and Jason Zucker. (Gains elite forward & bottom-sixer, loses depth from prospect pool and top-six forward)
Colorado gains Jay Bouwmeester, loses Jamie McGinn and Ryan O'Reilly. (Solidifies defense, loses forward depth)
Vancouver gains Dany Heatley and Sam Gagner, loses Ryan Kesler. (Gagner for Kesler, Heatley goes with Sedins. Adds to Van offensive depth)
At this point I have to think Heatley is a worse offensive player than Kesler.
