They should have tried to move 94 or 20 both serve no purpose
Just because 94 and 20 deserve to be moved or press boxed doesn't make Eager any less expendable. He wasn't playing the style of game he was brought in to play, so the Oilers got someone who would. And with all those rumours from the media about how unhappy he was with his role on the team, I say good riddance.

I am not a Tambo fan, but fixing his Eager mistake with Brown is a move I do applaud.
