isbister,and torres for niinimaa
lindgren and an 8th round pick for salo (who played decent for a few years)
brewer, green, and winchester for hamrlik
need i go on...
trade 1: we got a second round pick in the deal as well. Isbister got you nothing much while Niinimaa got us a 2nd rounder. So 2 second rounders for a second liner isn't that bad a deal although i will give a slight edge to the Oilers.
trade 2: who cares about salo, that was a win on our behalf by subtract and hey we got an 8th rounder to boot.
trade 3: Brewer was/is overrated, the other guys amounted to nothing. Hamerlik was the best player in the deal. How is that bad?
