New Jersey was squarely in a corner wrt the cap; they had to send the 1st to San Jose in order to get the Sharks to take Malakhov. The Sharks had no intention of spending to cap, so they didn't care whether Malakhov was their or not.

Edmonton isn't backed into a corner wrt the cap, and New Jersey isn't going to leave $3-4 million in cap space unused. Thus, it makes absolutely no sense for the Oilers to send Staios to New Jersey for a swap of 1st-round picks.

Until the Habs doesn't resign Schneider and Dandenault.. I can see Steve St on Habs blue line along with Hamrlik..

If i'm Gainey I can offer Kyle Chipchura for him.
