Eh, Idk if replacing Tambo with Mac T means that they're going to shop a young piece for a proven defender. Seems more like Lowe threw some red meat at the fan base to keep them busy for a while.

Plus, I can't imagine how we'd absorb one of those Hall or Eberle contracts and RNH is likely not moving. That leaves Yakupov and Gagner as the two "top young forwards" available, and I wouldn't Del Zotto for Gagner. Del Zotto for Yakupov? Can't see Edmonton doing it.
