You would need assurances that Lubo Visnovsky would come back to Edmonton. But if so... oh **** yeah. Whitney has been on a pretty steady decline for 2 years now. Ever since he got injured after being absolutely outstanding for the first 1/2 of his first full season as an Oiler.
It's crazy how far he has fallen.
Had 27 points in 35 games, +13 playing 25 minutes a night. Just was outstanding for Edmonton in his first 50 or so games with the team.
Hurt his ankle, 2 years multiple foot/leg injuries later and he is just a fraction of what he was. Bottom pairing, horrendous skating, soft as butter, terrible decisions away from and with the puck (although he can still make a very nice first pass). I feel bad for him. Part of it is probably physical, part of it mental (not the first team he's fallen after starting out well).
Sort of wish that if he does get traded he succeeds. Seems like a nice enough guy.
