TSN reported that the Oilers dropped off pieces of paper with what would interest them to teams at the draft. I would think if it was Pitkanen and Carter/Richards (most likely Richards), then it would probably do with a 2nd round pick and could even get a 4th or 5th back. Most teams are looking at 2 players and a first round, but I like your young guys and could understand why you don't want to get rid of them.
Do you get the fact that Pitkanen by himself carries more trade value than Brewer, Lynch, and Woywitka combined ???

Lowe can ask for anything he wants, doesn't mean he's going to get it. Some teams are going to fill their need for a #1 defenseman through free agency (Redden, Chara, JoVo, etc.)

While Pronger is better than any of them, the other you get for just $$$$$$$$$. With Pronger you have to give up assets and $$$$$$.

That's going to limit the list of suitors.
