  1. seems like a fair deal… slightly weakens STL in the short term, so can’t complain about that…

  2. Edmonton IMO wins BIG on this deal. Best player in the trade Perron by a significant amount. Clearly a salary dump and a player they didnt see moving forward. I was a guy that like Pääjärvi going into the draft unfornuately he has done little with alot of a talent and potential. I keep waiting for the Oilers to take the jump to contender maybe this is the year. I also like their 1st ound draft pick Darnel Nurse. Going into last season I saw Edm as a top 4 team in the West and saw Vancouver sliding down, maybe I was a year premature, but I think this move helps ALOT for them.
