I'm an Oilers fan, so there is no personal attachment either way in this deal, but Nashville won this one big. Gamache does have NHL talent IMO. I've been saying since his days in the Q, he'd be a big point producer in the NHL, BUT, would take a much longer time to get there than most. Safronov I believe will eventually be an NHL'er as well, probabkly nothing more than a 2nd pairing at best, but is still a pretty good dman.

Back to Gamache, (you guys may hate me for this comment)I really hope the Preds get some injury trouble at center and are forced to play Gamache in the lineup for a long stretch. He won't be effective his first few games, but once he finds his groove, I really think he could put some points up. I really think you guys got a steal here with him, but he certainly needs to be given the opportunity at the NHL level(not a top line, just NHL) and managment has to be patient with him.
