The guy is certainly a more than decent puck-carrying and puck-passing defenseman, he'd be a boost to the powerplay, and although he's not a physical presense, he's at least aware of what his defensive responsibilities are.

The Oilers might have a few bucks more than that to spend. The Canadian dollar jumped by just over one cent today and that saves the Oilers at least 600,000 unless my math is totally out to lunch.
