I'm not arguing that PHX should do it because OEL should not be traded. However the fact that this is getting laughed at is ridiculous. Shane Doan is worth more to PHX then anyone else outside of PHX that contract is a burden on a team at the cap and he's been with the same franchise forever. However Phi may have a top 10 pick this year + Brayden Schenn + Voracek is the main return we got for both of our franchise centers 2 off seasons ago. Again minus Wayne Simmonds and a 2nd round pick (flipped for Nick Grossmann). It's laughable that OEL who isn't even a top 10 player at his position would return such a bounty.

For the record
Weber
Karlsson
Chara
Pietrangelo
Letang
Doughty
Keith
McDonagh
Edler
Suter
Boyle
Stop ... you are putting Schenn and Voracek as Richards and Carter?

This deal is a joke for Phoenix.

I would take OEL over a few on that list easily.
