I already said that since Berglunds an RFA his value decreases. I thought we were past that already? Talking logic and using massive hyperbole don't jive. Crosby / Ovechkin were the closest to sure things as we've seen. I have heard over and over again people talking about "the deepest draft in years" year after year. #7 is never a sure thing.
The Oilers are not going to trade #7 overall for an RFA Patrick Berglund. Maybe for a Patrick Berglund that is signed for the next four years ay 3M per or some such, but not RFA.
The premise that Patrick Berglund will be a better NHL player over the next couple of years at least, still stands, I think.
