Could you imagine how much trouble the Oilers would be in if they still had him?
I mean their powerplay is terrible as it is, nevermind compounding it with his extra 2 penalties per game.
He is a terrible defenseman who will play rough and stick up for his teammates. Now 3 years ago, that might have been helpful to this team when we had guys like Niinimaa and Hamrlik on the back end, as well as Smith at the top of his game. He handles the puck like its a hand grenade, and he takes a lot of chances going for a big hit.
Plus I actually think he is the one player in the league who may be slower than Ferguson.
