The Trade that Wasn't

Before the Flames and Maple Leafs made their trade, there was an offer made to the Oilers from the Leafs that would have seen Colin Stuart and Anton Stralman (the 2 players the flames later recieved) as Edmonton Oiler property with Fernando Pisani going the other way to Toronto. There were reportedly no draft picks in the deal.

The Oilers turned down the offer due to their organizational depth at the defense position.

This also puts to rest the myth of hostile feelings that the Oilers and Brian Burke have for each other as they are now communicating again.


  1. It also puts the myth of the Oilers of having a bigger, tougher, and gritter team also.

  2. How is anyone to believe that there is any truth to this?
