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.
I'd be completely shocked if that went down. It would be highway robbery. I'd love every second of it, but it just seems way too low. I mean, look at it this way, would you trade B. Schenn for Immer/L. Schenn? I wouldn't. Then factor in thatEberle is better than Schenn and I really wouldn't. But if they do...that would be awesome.
