Moving them for a defenseman with high draft pedigree and a big centre prospect is essentially like throwing your money into a wishing well and hoping for immediate success.
Smid your top defenseman? Ouch..

Gudbrason is gonna be a beast, and is a righthanded shooter, which aren't too many off.

Bjugstad has already played a couple of NHL games to get a feeling for the NHL.

If you don't think Florida gets bent over in that deal, you're delusional.

Gagner has been thrown into every Oilers trade, and there is a good reason for it.
