As everyone likely know by now, Heatley's been dealt to the San Jose Sharks with a fifth round pick in exchange for Milan Michalek, Jonathan Cheechoo and a second round draft pick.
Over at OilersNation, Jason Gregor asks the same question I'd been thinking about: as an Oilers fan, would you deal Dustin Penner, Andrew Cogliano and Ladislav Smid for the package above?
I know for a fact that I wouldn't.
Bryan Murray took a substantially lesser package from the Sharks, even allowing for the fact that Michalek's the best player of the six. It's no wonder he hesitated to make that trade.
The wonder is that he made it at all.
