I think there's a good distance between Oberg and Gervais based on NHL experience, knowledge of the system, chemistry with teammates/ the stuff that separates a rookie from a vet etc. In terms of skill, I don't know. SFY obviously likes his game to trade for him.

Even if they don't plan on him playing this season I do think it's a good idea that they keep prepping him up here. We aren't really expecting Ohlund back so just in case a situation happens we might need him down the stretch, or sooner. The system takes a long time (look at Gilroy) to learn so it's good they are starting now. He should be comfortable and set when the times comes if we need him.
