oops, you are correct sir. it was a big slow oilers defenseman with stone hands, got the wrong one!

though mcgillis has been proving me wrong on the stone hands thing...

i think the oates trade was tremendously bad for philly. maybe it's just me. 1st, 2nd, 3rd pick? ouch. it looked a lot worse at the time maybe, because maxime oullette was a 'hot' prospect at the time for philly's dreaded goalie position. three years between NHL starts has perhaps dulled the 'bad trade' stigma...
