For those following the hockey news today it has been a whirlwind of waivers and roster movement in general. It appeared as if Derek Roy was set to join the Milwaukee Admirals and make his debut tomorrow night after he was placed and then cleared waivers. Then comes the swerve job.

The Nashville Predators have traded Roy to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Mark Arcobello.

Arcobello has played every game this season at the NHL level for the Oilers where he has scored 12 points (7 goals, 5 assists) in 36 games. Last season he did play 15 games for the Oklahoma City Barons in the AHL in which he tallied 28 points (10 goals, 18 assists) in 15 games – but spent the bulk of his season in the NHL with Edmonton.

Thoughts on this trade by the Nashville Predators? Disappointed that the Milwaukee Admirals won’t be adding Derek Roy to the mix? Who gets the better of this deal?
