Oiler fan here. Just hoping to put Stolls role in the cup run into perspective for you. Stoll was very good during the run, but he was far from our best player during it. He was likely behind Rolosson, Horcoff, Smyth, Pisani, Peca, Pronger, Spacek, Torres, Hemsky, and even Winchester for the few games he played.
That being said, Ive always had a huge thing for Winnie, so take that with a grain of salt.
However, if we ever had an important face off to take(offensive or defensive) Stoll was our man. He is totally clutch when the draw really matters.
Also, on the PP, just having Stoll as an option opened up Pronger for around half of his playoff goals. Teams absolutely need to respect his shot even though it misses around %50 of the time. Im just hoping that he found a stick that works for him and doesnt break every third shot.
In summation, I liked this trade alot for both teams. In the long term however, Id say Greene will be what wins the trade for the kings. Hes gonna turn into a beast.
