A lot of fans are really hard in this deal, I think he’s worth a 4th. But if you watched games, he’s a pretty good defenseman, he’s a little Raw, but does whatever need defensively, takes his man, can be aggressive. Which is more than I can say about any other Oiler defenseman. Good trade for the Islanders.
This trade favors the Oilers, don't get me wrong, but I'm okay with it if this means Seidenberg goes on waivers. I just wish Edmonton fleeced us for a bottom 6 forward too so we could put Chimera on waivers too.
Isles needed defense. This trade got us defense. I think we needed a more high profile acquisition than this, but I'll take it.
