I still don't make this deal if I were SJ. There is absolutely no risk here for Edmonton. SJ is the one assuming risk in acquiring a fragile Slovak and a youngster than is more of a suspect than a prospect, while giving up a guy that brings much more to the table than what's being sent in return.
First, let me say theres not a better fit for the oilers roster than Clowe.

Its bad asset management because Clowe is a UFA this summer. Hemsky alone is a lot to give up for what could amount to a rental. I'm definitely not dealing MPS+Hemsky+2nd for 40 games of Clowe.
