I personally like the trade alot. I like Lukas but the bottom-line is that he wasnt going to get the top ice, especially PP time with Salo, Edler, Ohlund and Bieksa here. It surprises me the people sorry to see him go when he seemed like a bit of a whipping boy the past 2 years.
I really like O'Brien as a 5-6-7 guy on the backend. He always seemed to give it his all, played tough and was very dependable.
It does shock me a little that Ouellet is already ticketed to Manitoba. I know he is a guy that needs to be top 6 to be effective but he has proven he can put the puck int he net. I would say he will be a call-up sooner than later.
