I disagree with that assessment. The Oilers traded away their leading scorer in Anson Carter (granted, I think he is one of the most over-rated players in the NHL) and got back Dvorak.. I think expectations from fans were very high. Thus far, I'd say the trade still hangs in the balance.. there is no doubt that Devo is capable of potting 30 goals again with the right linemates and decent ice time. I'm still worried about the injury bug (knock on wood) however.. if he stays healthy this season, I think the trade will end up being at worst a wash.

PS: I was trying very hard to avoid another one of my Carter rants.. don't get me started on Anson
