I remember being told that Sutton was just as bad as Foster when we swapped them last year. That was clearly the opinion of people who didn't know how bad Foster was because Sutton was a clear improvement.

Similarly, I have a feeling that anyone who thinks this trade isn't good for the Oilers is unfamilar Corey Potter and Theo Peckham.

Even if you don't think the 6th D spot makes that much of a difference, it's worth it just to have another buffer spot in case of an injury. One AHL-level defenceman might be tolerable but each one after the first will have a larger and larger impact.
