I'm serious here, this might be the worst trade I've ever seen.

I think that's a very fair assessment. Certainly one-for-one.

It's hard to think of any remotely close comparable horrible trades.  Courtnall for Kordic was brutally lopsided, but Hall is an all-star, though Larsson is no Kordic either...

What a joke.  I still think Hall was the second most valuable asset on the Oilers after McDavid.  For Larsson?!  Hahahahahahaha.

Leafs should have offered Gardiner.  That should have gotten it done.  ::)

If only we still had Antropov, Colaiacovo and a pick.

Remember that clip of Chiarelli in the Bruins war room/echo chamber talking about trading Seguin?

Remember how a lot if it was potentially attributed to editing of the show?

I think this proves that this guy is just a straight up moron who surrounds himself with sycophants or morons who give him two thumbs up every time he speaks.

So at this rate JVR is either worth a 4th round pick or Malkin straight up.

Cue the Edmonton papers writing columns about how sometimes Taylor Hall would eat spicy food and stay up way past his bedtime.

Depends on which trade partner we tango with. Chiarelli, Bergevin, Sweeney, Benning giving our last decade of Leafs management a run for their money. I can hear their wikis being edited already.

I feel really, really bad for Larsson. There is no possible way he can play up to the kind of level that will get Edmonton fans not to despise him.

Well, if the Oilers are good it won't matter much.

You're so kind. Here I am laughing at Edmonton for this terrible trade, but here you are caring for the human being that now has to live there.

If this is one for one, it could be one of the most lopsided trades I've seen in awhile.

The sense I got from Oilers fans is that they were ready to trade anyone on the roster not named McDavid.

But this...this is funny.

Important lessons to take away from today:

1. It's hard to trade for good defensemen
2. NHL players don't like free agency much
3. Nashville has super defenseman powers.
