Most fans seem to think that the 2nd deal is an overpayment for Ottawa, but I'd personally rather keep Gilbert and Nilsson. Neil is completely overrated and does nothing for me. He'll be looking for over $2M next year, and there's no way he's worth that. Especially when you have the same type of guy in Stortini making 700K. Volchenkov is a terrific player, but I'd rather keep the puck mover in Gilbert, and he's already the perfect compliment to Souray. I don't see any reason to break up the Oilers' top defense pair.
