I don't see the need for Columbus to make this trade.

Sideways move.

Oilers get a 3rd line vet (which they need) and take on a bit more salary.

Blue Jackets get a young playmaker center with some defensive shut-down ability. Pouliot thinks he's a top-6 player though... he has top-6 passing skill and decent NHL-size/speed/hands, but is soft and has intensity issues.

No interest. I'd prefer to keep Pouliot.

Unless Pouliot is pretty good in the faceoff circle, I think I'd rather keep Manny.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Don't think we're ready to give up on Pouliot just yet; but his window of opportunity is closing pretty quick

Obviously we didn't think highly enough of him to "grant" him a top6 spot on our team...if he makes it he'll be playing no more than 15 mins/game

The Oilers should be looking for a guy like Malhotra to replace some of what they lost with Stoll and Reasoner.

I doubt the Jackets would be interested in this deal, though, as Pouliot is basically just an unproven and inexperienced version of the same type of thing.

This would be a great deal for the Oilers as Malhotra would fit a lot of Edmonton's need. On the downside, I can't see Columbus being interested in a trade like this.

Columbus doesnt do it. for 2 reasons.
1. Manny is one of the best face-off men
2. Manny is the ****ing man
