Trade: Pitkanen/Sanderson to Edmonton for Smith/Lupul


Recommended Posts

Naaah...will go down as basically the steal of the century for the Oilers. Pitkanen is the real deal, Lupul might be a top six forward sure, but a franchise defenseman is hard to get.

Pitkanen is the real deal.

At one point in time id agree with you but his stock has fallen like a rock. Why would phoenix reject Phillys trade to move Pitkanen and the 2nd overall pick for Ballard and I think it was the 21st pick. Pitkanen although has potential is glorified by the draft selection and is more of a future Brad Stuart as opposed to a future Scott Niedermeyer. I really dont wanna argue about numbers or about stuarts -22 in boston.. im just trying to point out that he isnt that special.
