If SJ wanted any part of the 4 kids, you can't have untouchables. I'd trade Burns straight up for one of them, or Couture for either of Hall or RNH, or I'd add to Pavelski to get any of them. If the Oilers really wanted to make the playoffs, I'd add to either of Thornton or Marleau for any of them.
Edmonton is a very poorly-run organization, but they're not incompetent to pull a Joe Thornton trade 2.0. I know you weren't trying to be insulting, but the offer nevertheless was.
Thank you Jux. Put in that light, I believe I owe the oiler nation a sincere apology.
All, please accept my apologies and try to ignore my previous rookie post.
