Realistically OEL is not getting traded. The only good defensemen moved in their prime (i.e. before 35) since the lockout have been in one of three categories: pending UFA(1 year or less before UFA status), salary dump (Brian Campbell), or disgruntled/rumored locker room cancer (Phaneuf). OEL doesn't fit in any of those categories. You have to get defensemen before they have success at the NHL level or in UFA status or a trade 1 year before. You can also get a struggling young defensemen who perfromance has been up and down like Luke Schenn.
