Kings and Oilers trade former 6th overall picks, Ryan Smyth for Gilbert Brule

New, comments

Hey, I thought it was "done" this morning, with Smyth going to Calgary for a 6th round pick. Now Ryan Smyth has been officially traded back to the Edmonton Oilers for 2005 6th overall pick Gilbert Brule and a 4th round pick. I am not clear whether this is Edmonton's own 4th round pick (#91), or their acquired #113 pick. Either way, that's much more than pretty much everyone thought Lombardi was going to be able to get. And with that, assuming no further moves (ha ha), I think we're looking at a forward roster of:

Dustin Penner - Anze Kopitar - Justin Williams

Scott Parse - Mike Richards - Dustin Brown

Jarret Stoll - Andrei Loktionov - Gilbert Brule

Kyle Clifford - Trevor Lewis - Brad Richardson
