It does make sense though, and national media in Toronto(sportsnet) are reporting on it. Edmonton is really too talented to be losing the way they are, just like the Flyers. They desperately need to add grit to their lineup, they are extremely soft. Luke Schenn+Wayne Simmonds for Eberle+Hemsky(seems like a salary throw in) makes sense for two teams underachieving and needing a kick in the ass. Edmonton for the last 2 years now have been "on the verge" of being a playoff team according to everyone, but they never come close. They don't have the right mixture of talent and grit.
