We are not completely disappointed with the trade at all as eric is still considered one of the premier young dmen in the league.

Understandeable and I'm not knocking Brewer at all. He is a good player and he's going to be a 1-2 d-man for the Oil as long as they want him around and he wants to be around. As you stated, he's gained a lot of experience (being on an Olympic Gold Medal team, etc).

Just amazed that I still hear that the Oil won that deal. We needed a vet defenseman and Brewer wasn't progressing and the Oil were going to lose Hamrlik because of contract demands. Both teams won the deal, I just think we won it short-term and the Oil have a chance to win it long-term.

Regarding Brewer's lack of progressing on the Isles, can any Isle fan remember a prospect that actually developed here and not to the eventual team they wound up playing for?????
