Oduya has played good this year, I wouldn't say great. He's definitely a solid #4 and a great addition for this team. We have lots of prospects as it is, and the odds that either of those 2 picks turn into something better than Oduya is small. Sure he has a questionable turnover every game or 2, but he makes up for it during the rest of the game.

Oduya has been good for this Hawks team, and anyone who doesn't think so has probably had a problem with him ever since he joined, and therefore has a closed mind towards him. Some people have unreal expectations of players and just think every single player on the ice should play perfect all game every game. Maybe if the cap was twice what it is now, we could get a team full of first liners, and first pairing defenders, but it's not. Lower your expectation for players as you move down in pairings and you'll realize that our 2nd pairing is one of the best in the league, if not the best right now.
