VAN would have gladly given up a late 3rd in order to upgrade from a Barker to Fistric.

From the sounds of things (and the practices today) Fistric might be a #7 Dman for the Oilers as well.
Oh, we definitely like him, but paying a 3rd round pick to upgrade your #7 dman for one year is excessive. You'd have to be sure of resigning him as I mentioned. I think it would be upgrading Alberts to Fistric in any case.

I don't think he'd resign with Vancouver since he's in his prime and probably wants to establish the rest of career as more than a half-time press box occupant. Would be different if he was 5-6 years older I think.
