But you're conflagrating variables with that. Its not how it works. Theres unknowns and due to decisions that are made, not made. You can't transcribe one regular season had elsewhere to what would be had here. Completely different things and for obvious reasons.

The Kings traded beans for a useful playoff player, and won the cup, so they are happy.
Exactly, except very happy.

But just because they won the cup doesn't automatically make the Oilers lose the deal.
Again I never said it did. But the one card player already cashed in chips, made it to the bank, and has had feet up in the sun. The other org still tanking, still sucking, still losing, still miserable. Years away from the asset helping.

If we had kept Penner he would have had 2 horrible seasons, and would have signed elsewhere. So we would have literally been left with nothing. His depature marginally hurt the Oilers, and Klefboms emergence will have a bigger impact
YOu absolutely don't know that. Because its make believe.
