I'm with Akira...lateral at best, a slight downgrade at worst. I'm not really seeing the improvement here.
I didn't realize the first trade had happened when I posted it, but I still think he makes them better.

Does anyone else think Anaheim is trying to trade up?

But probably gone at the end of the year to test UFA waters. I know you never know but he'll get 5 from Calgary at least or he'll be gone.

He'll be gone. He's too soft, small, and weak defensively for Sutter's liking. Which makes this a bit of a head scratcher. He's basically just a smaller, slower version of Tangs with a better shot. One thing that they might be banking on is Camms having chemistry with Iginla, which Tanguay never seemed to develop.

FLA just got 2 solid D-men for the price of one player who couldn't get the job done IMO.

There are a lot of threads for the draft, I keep on going from one to the other lol.

I was kind of hoping LA would go off the map again heh. I think people are too quick to panic (regarding making a move), there's a lot of time left.

Will Bettman be up there on the podium when the Rangers make their pick?

Not bad...it only took until the 2nd overall pick before Pierre Maguire's voice drove me starkers. *MUTE*

More like: Grebeshkov (young D-man like Ballard), Staios (vet, a bit washed up, like Boynton) and our first pick.

That's closer to the actual deal. I think I would've pulled the trigger--as long as Pitkanen gets signed.

Owner of the Ottawa Senators just implied that there is something in the works. "Thats our little secret" - pretty obvious. Of course, he might just be toying, but with all the rumors going around - it's starting to seem more and more probable that a big move is coming.

You better hope Jokinen would score 50 goals because we would giving up an awful lot of them in our own end.

I dunno, I just don't think we will have Pitkanen for a long time.

In terms of value for value, it's a good trade. But from the Oilers perspective, it doesn't make sense. We trade away a burgeoning young D and one of our only two vet D and a pick, to get another forward, a position where we're overstocked already. Unless there's another trade on the front burner to flip a couple of forwards for a solid D.
