Even though Gagner is not that big bodied 2nd line center that we need, he is still the only other option organizational speaking that fits that role right now. The purpose of getting Lou would be to win games this season.

Give em Horcoff + our 1rst and 2nd 2013, well take Lou and their 1rst 2013. They get the center they want until Kesler gets back, we get our goalie, Van moves up draft positionally (or should) and adds a 2nd. Edmonton signs Arnott for the remainder of the year, everyone is happy.
So we swap firsts, take on Horcoff and his higher cap hit for multiple years, and Edmontons second? I'm not sure how you get to the conclusion that's fair value, and with Lu and given our injuries, Edmonton likely isn't much worse then we are. so a slight bump in our first round pick plus horcoff and a second....no thank you.
