It has nothing to do with value.

If Vanek and Hodgson was offered for Schultz and Dubyk, would the Oiler do it? Of course not, even if they got great value, yhe team would still have too many forwards and no goaltending or defence. Sometimes value doesn't even enter into it.

Eberle is amazing. However Ottawa simply doesn't need a scoring forward when they have, literally, twelve guys ready to possibly replace Alfredsson. PLUS, Ottawa has a budget and Eberle breaks it.
