Peckham had a bit of an off year last year, but he's generally pretty underrated
Peckham was definitely an excellent PKer last year, and he can really lay the body. He's definitely worth keeping around if he can revert back to his 2010-11 form, but last year's Peckham was absolutely atrocious.

Clitsome and Potter both played about the same amount of PP time and unlike one poster said, Potter's points were evenly split between the PP and EV. Potter was not the answer last year and if he was brought along slowly, things might of been different, but no way is Clitsome an upgrade. Why would the Oilers make this trade when they could get a better D though waivers.

If Winnipeg had players like Petrell in their system, why didn't they use them, because their PK, 24th last season, sure could of used the help.
I've watched more of Clitsome than most other Oilers fans, and I can tell you without a doubt that Clitsome >> Potter. Stats aren't the only things that matter here.
I'd say Petrell would be more valuable to the Jets than he is to the Oilers, and Clitsome would be more valuable on the Oilers than he is on the Jets.
Win-win IMO.
