99 out of 100 years, a game the same day as the trade deadline would leave the honorable Citizens of the OilersNation asking questions like "how fast can we scramble a jet to go pick up "insert new player here" so that he can play tonight?" We would also be speculating wildly about how well the new player would fit into the overall structure and would have convinced ourselves that the Oilers would in fact go 17-3 down the stretch to make the playoffs.

As usual, when a veteran player is sent out of town for futures, it's traditional for the local media to jump on board and tell us all which player will replace him. I still recall listening to some suit in the Oilers ‘brain-trust’ explaining that the reason Janne Niinimaa was expendable was because Alexei Semenov’s progress was so outstanding. Sweet, sweet memories.
In any case, while I’ve said my piece about the Grebeshkov trade, I figured it might be worthwhile to see how he matches up against his de facto replacement.

Join us throughout the day for news and views (and perhaps the odd irreverent comment) about the 2010 trade deadline.
