And my response to that was that the Oilers would feel the exact same with Taylor Hall.

Which is why I stated that the return for the aforementioned package would "piss the other team's fanbase off" in my initial response. Yet to you that was apparently going off-topic.

I'm certain you're either a giant Pietrangelo advocate or hold a great disdain for the Oilers. But in any case you seem to have completely ignored the fact that it would take a giant overpayment to get Taylor Hall out of Edmonton - not to mention the other pieces involved.

Regardless of the bodies coming back, we're still down a #1 LW if this deal is made. In your ideology, the Blues moving Pietrangelo makes about as much sense as the Oilers moving Hall without a respectable replacement.
