To Edmonton: Eriksson

To Dallas: Grebeshkov, Petry, Edmonton's 1st.
Thats a lot to give up for a guy that only has one good season under his belt.

I doubt Edmonton does this... even if it is Eriksson. It's not set in stone if Eriksson can duplicate his stats again. Also, the Oilers fans have no clue if Eriksson will find chemistry with Hemsky or whoever like he did with Richards. Way too much of a gamble for Edmonton.

It works the same for Dallas. Grebeshkov had a career year in pts and +/- but it remains to be seen if he can stay consistent. He would look great with Zubov or Niskanen though. Then there's the unproven prospect (I don't know much about this prospect) and as for the the 1st rd pick... It really depends on how desperate Edmonton wants a versatile top 6 forward.

Well apparently Edmonton wants a line of pure scoring and when teams are desperate they overpay. I think that's what it would take to pry Eriksson out of Dallas.

The same can be said about Grebeshkov who also has one good season.
