In my opinion, it's never a smart idea to trade productive young players/potential stars for complimentary players unless you have a gun to your head.
And the Oilers don't? Won't be long until the Tier 1 fans decide there better off taking a 2 week vacation to Hawaii instead of watching this disgrace of a team.
