TORONTO -- It wasn't the trade the Edmonton Oilers may have been expecting.
They didn't get a warm body in return for Marc-Andre Bergeron.
"We don't look at it like we're selling off or giving up. That's not the case," said Ethan Moreau. "We realize the situation where things weren't just working out with him and they made a decision to make a trade. It doesn't send a message at all that we're sellers."
Tomorrow the Oilers will go into Ottawa to face the Senators without their best offensive defenceman.
"You have to have faith that you can do what you have to do with this team here - which is win games," said Steve Staios.
Tom Gilbert and J.F. Jacques are expected to be called up from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton today.
